The corner of an office building is shown on a sunny day. We respond to property damage emergencies of all kinds in Miami.

Property Damage Driving You Mad?

You would never know that this office was hit by a car. The driver, who was under the influence, accelerated through an intersection, lost control of the vehicle, became airborne, and plowed into the side of a South Beach office complex. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but it sure was a surreal image to see the tail end of a car sticking out of an office building!

After the car had been extracted from the building, SERVPRO® of Miami Beach was called out to begin the cleanup and restoration process. Upon arrival, they boarded up the broken window to secure the structure and conducted an assessment of the damage.

All of the broken glass and other building rubble was cleaned up and removed, and they inventoried the office contents and moved the furniture and electronic equipment. They sent some damaged documents out to be restored, cleaned the office furniture, and packed up the office equipment and other items, and stored them in an offsite storage until the structural repairs were completed. The damaged office was restored to preloss condition as if nothing had ever happened.

Bad Odor in North Bay Village?

A man is shown opening an air return vent to inspect it for contaminants. You can breathe easier knowing that your HVAC system is well maintained in Miami.

Clean Air Really Matters

Did you know that leaving your windows open while running the air conditioning system can cause condensation to build up in the air conditioning unit? Bad odors can form when the moisture escapes into the ductwork due to improper drainage. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) microbial growths, dirt, and other contaminants can act as pollutants and can cause musty or moldy smells in your ventilation system. SERVPRO® of Miami Beach understands the benefits of having your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system serviced and maintained regularly in North Bay Village. The advantages of having your HVAC system serviced are:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth

The HVAC system is the respiratory system of your house. Sometimes the ductwork will not require cleaning, and when we come out, we will determine your needs and make recommendations to keep your HVAC system properly maintained.

North Bay Village residents and commercial business owners can all rely on our team of highly trained technicians to service your HVAC system and to inspect and clean your air ducts, and we are Here to Help. ® Call SERVPRO® of Miami Beach today at 305-532-5411.

Water Damage Happens Often in the U.S.

According to the Insurance Information Institute, (III), about one in 50 homes has a water damage property claim annually.

Some examples of water intrusion are sewer line backups, pipe breaks, leaking window seals, roof and rain gutter leaks, and flooding outside the structure. SERVPRO® of Miami Beach wants the residents and commercial business owners of North Bay Village to know that we are ready to respond to any size water damage emergency 24 hours a day.

Blown Over by Storm Damage in Miami?

High winds whip up white caps on the waves off the coast of Miami, Fl. We are storm damage restoration specialists in Miami Beach.

Strange Atlantic Hurricane Season

So far during this strange hurricane season, we have met storms Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, Edouard, and Fay. SERVPRO® of Miami Beach wants Miami Beach residents to know that we will respond to any size storm damage emergency you may have, and we are available 24 hours a day, every day, to respond to your call.

Hurricane Fay set a new season record as the earliest storm to be named with the letter “F” since the 1800s. In a recent article written by extreme weather reporter, Brian Kahn, Kahn describes the current hurricane season’s surprising twists and turns. For instance, two storms happened before the official start to the hurricane season, one storm crossed over to the Pacific and returned to the Atlantic and made landfall over Lake Superior, and Fay formed very close to land as Bertha did earlier this year.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has forecasted this year’s hurricane season to have above-normal activity, predicting a 60 percent chance of an above-normal season, and a likely range of between 13 to 19 named storms, of which 6 to 10 could become hurricanes. Their forecast also predicts 3 to 6 major hurricanes.

Garage Fires Happen

According to the United States Fire Administration, (USFA), about 6600 garage fires occur in the United States each year. SERVPRO® of Miami Beach has witnessed firsthand the damage fires can do to garages in the Miami area. Our team of highly trained technicians can respond to any size fire damage emergency and can usually be onsite within four hours to begin the cleanup and restoration process. Here are some safety tips from the USFA to prevent home garage fires:

  • Store oil, gasoline, paints, propane and varnishes in a shed away from your home
  • Keep items that can burn on shelves away from appliances
  • Plug only one charging appliance into an outlet
  • Don’t use an extension cord when charging an appliance

If you are building a garage, the USFA suggests:

  • A 20-minute fire-rated door that is self-closing and self-latching from the garage into the house
  • A ceiling made with five-eighth inch Type X gypsum board if there is living space above the garage
  • A wall with one-half inch gypsum board if the wall attaches the garage to your home
  • An attic hatch cover if you have attic access from the garage
  • A heat alarm, not a smoke alarm, in your garage
