Local Jacksonville Property Owners Know SERVPRO Handles Any Type of Water Clean Up
Nature lovers are drawn to the Jacksonville area not just for the Atlantic Ocean access but also for its natural beauty. There are many great venues for hiking, nature trails, and wildlife viewing.
Jacksonville Venues for Animal Lovers
Located on a large 73-acre park, this is the only zoo in the Northeast of Florida. The park has over 2000 animals and 1000 native plants for visitors to view. This unique destination is one of seven zoos in the United States with an on-site animal wellness team that keeps the exotic and native animals in optimum health. Another fun site that visitors and Jacksonville locals enjoy is the Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary. This non-profit organization has a mission to provide safe, loving, and forever homes for endangered big cats. The majority of the cats housed at the sanctuary came from circuses and individuals who adopted them and could not handle these large carnivores' special needs. This Jacksonville sanctuary is home to:
- Leopards and pumas
The Legacy of Ninah Cummer in Jacksonville
A popular destination for locals and visitors to the Jacksonville area is the Cummer Museum. Ninah and her husband Arthur built their home in Jacksonville in 1902. The Cummer family's lumber company was the largest landowner in the Jacksonville area and made the Jacksonville and Southwestern Railroad. Ninah Cummer started collecting art during her honeymoon and never stopped adding to her collection. After her husband passed away in the 1940s, Ninah had the original home torn down and had a new home rebuilt and added an Italian-inspired garden named Olmsted Garden. When Ninah passed away in 1958, she bequeathed her art collection and gardens to a private organization that would maintain the property and keeps the venue open as a center of both culture and community. The organization that oversees the museum is the DeEtte Holden Cummer Museum Foundation, named after Ninah's deceased infant daughter.
Flood Damage in Jacksonville Homes is No Match for SERVPRO
Flood damage has the potential to affect Jacksonville properties in numerous ways. Some of the most common are ruined floors, the need to remove sheetrock, and the issue of mold growth. SERVPRO technicians have comprehensive training to perform the flood restoration and get the property ready for the needed water damage repairs. The technicians pay special attention to the structure during extraction to ensure that the maximum amount of moisture and ruined building materials are removed. Drying the property is a huge part of the restoration services. The technicians bring multiple types of equipment such as:
- Low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers
- Thermal energy systems
- Air movers
During the drying phase of the water damage mitigation, the technicians monitor the process carefully through the use of both visual inspections and the use of equipment that reads the air moisture levels to determine how close the work-site is to hitting the pre-set drying goals.
