Drying Basements and Crawlspaces Affected by Flood Damage in Daytona Beach After a Storm

Storm Damage Drying Basements and Crawlspaces Affected by Flood Damage in Daytona Beach After a Storm Storm Related Water Damage in Daytona Beach Basements and Crawlspaces Get Help from SERVPRO

SERVPRO Reduces Flooding with Fast Service and Superior Products

When a storm comes knocking, the resultant floodwater can seep into the foundation of your home and compromise its structural integrity. Staying in such a home in Daytona Beach is dangerous as it presents numerous safety hazards. Additionally, wet and damp furniture, walls, furnishings, and carpets offer the ideal environment for mold and mildew to thrive. To return the house to preloss conditions, every inch of the house must be checked thoroughly for dampness and then dried where necessary.

If you find yourself in a flood damage situation in Daytona Beach after a storm, SERVPRO can help restore your possessions. Our technicians have the knowledge and expertise to deal with all types of water damage, whether big or small. We are there to relieve you of the stress of cleaning and returning your items to their original state, "Like it never even happened." Acting fast to extract the water and dry the structure is necessary to minimize the damage and reduce repair or replacement costs.
 
First things first: safety. Water damage in the basement or crawlspace comes with numerous environmental hazards, including structural, electrical, and various other hazardous materials. Since water conducts electricity, the first action is to check the power distribution box and then switch off all circuit breakers leading to the sub-level. SERVPRO technicians always use GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters) when working with electrical equipment in wet environments.
 
Long term exposure to flood water can weaken basement materials such as drywall, flooring, and piers and cinder blocks. Before we begin the mitigation and restoration process, we must investigate for water damage in these areas. This part involves checking for trapped water from above. Drywall becomes soft when wet and may cause ceilings to fall. Freeing the trapped water may require drilling "weep holes" in the ceiling cavities.
 
Once we have removed the floodwater, we use advanced drying equipment to dry the wet materials. We place dehumidifiers and air movers around the water-damaged area, as well as efficient air scrubbers, to get rid of odors and airborne contaminants. Many cases of foundation flooding also come with mold growth. Before we leave, we check for signs of mold and offer remediation services if there is a problem. The drying process can take a few days. Ask us about our encapsulation service for crawlspaces.
 
As a trusted restoration company in the Port Orange and South Daytona Beach region, SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange offers 24/7 flood damage services. We are part of your community and are dedicated to responding quickly to any size disaster. Call us anytime at (386) 788-0358.

Mold Damage In Daytona Beach -- Does Your AC Unit Match The Area To Be Cooled?

Mold Remediation Mold Damage In Daytona Beach -- Does Your AC Unit Match The Area To Be Cooled? Matching HVAC Systems Helps Prevent Mold Growth in Daytona Beach--SERVPRO Tip

SERVPRO Offers Advice to Reduce Chances of a Mold Infestation

In a humid and hot area like Florida’s Atlantic Coast homeowners must be vigilant about interior moisture and the potential for mold growth. Many things impact resident’s success in keeping moisture in check. SERVPRO helps local homeowners deal with mold outbreaks and also consults with customers on ways to limit future outbreaks.

You recently installed a new air conditioning system hoping it would keep musty smells and mold damage under control. Humidity levels in your Daytona Beach house should remain less than 60 percent to minimize the potential for mold; many experts recommend a range of 30 to 50 percent. Although your space seems cool, humidity levels are high, and you still smell and struggle with mold. Our mold remediation teams are familiar with ambient humidity issues and their contribution to fungal growth even without other sources of water.
 
There are many steps residents take to keep water incursions and humidity in check, but matching the load of your air conditioning system appropriately is one you may not consider. If your system is too large, it does not cycle through the cooling phase long enough to remove enough humidity out of the air. Instead, it turns on and off frequently, making the air temperature cooler but not cycling for the length of time necessary to condense enough water on the coils to reduce humidity. The moisture meter readings SERVPRO workers take upon arrival to evaluate your mold troubles signal that the air conditioning is only doing one of its two crucial jobs -- cooling but not dehumidifying.
 
Another flag we see is residents running both AC and dehumidifiers. A properly operating and sized HVAC system does not need additional help from a continuously running dehumidifier. As we move on to contain and remove the mold, and then sanitize the areas, per EPA guidelines we recommend a consultation with an HVAC specialist who does calculations to determine what size and efficiency AC unit you need to cool and dehumidify your air.
 
SERVPRO technicians know for certain that if the humidity remains elevated the mold will return. We work with you to review your options with the ultimate goal being an air conditioning unit that carries the “load” of cooling and dehumidifying.
 
SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange has many resources available for residents coping with persistent mold issues. Call us at (386) 788-0358 to schedule an evaluation and estimate.

After The Storm -- Abating Flood Damage in Daytona Beach

Storm Damage After The Storm -- Abating Flood Damage in Daytona Beach FOR Storm Flooding in South Daytona Beach Get Fast Water Extraction from SERVPRO

The Safe Removal of Contaminated Water After a Flood Takes SERVPRO Expertise

Extreme weather patterns seem common everywhere, and the Central Coast of Florida is no exception to these natural disasters. Although a daily thunderstorm is typical during the summer, five or more inches of rain in a few hours is possible, threatening your home with flooding. SERVPRO knows how to react and return your home to preloss condition.
 
Flood damage requires a systematic and proven approach to restoration of your Daytona Beach home. The high volume of water pouring off your roof and pooling up in your yard took the easy route into the lowest living areas of your dwelling. The storm filled streets and backed up storm sewers. Fast action on a broad range of tasks is the agenda. Our technicians have extensive training and hands-on experience in flood mitigation and transition seamlessly through the stages of restoration.
 
The SERVPRO team arrives ready to complete an assessment and then to get to work pumping and extracting several inches of floodwater. Floodwater contains debris from the outdoors and contamination from building materials as it seeped through the foundation. Chemicals from lawn treatments, automotive residues from parking areas and streets, and waste from animals or insects caught in the flood may find their way into your home. We collect the tainted water using truck mounted equipment and store it outside of your home for disposal according to local regulation.
 
We remove the majority of the standing water and move to the next step setting up powerful air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out the structure and the contents. Floors may bet added help from drying mats. Our team disinfects surfaces and searches for any hidden pockets of water behind paneling or drywall, or in the recessed cells of the cinder blocks lining the foundation. We record a baseline moisture level reading of each area and type of building material and use our advanced training to determine proper drying targets.
 
Furnishings, electronics and personal belongings may be removed to a staging area for evaluation. Some items may be too full of dirty flood water to retain, but our technicians have specialized training in cleaning, sanitizing, and drying a wealth of items, from upholstered furniture to clothing to books and documents, and more. Many of your treasure survive the flood. We may choose to complete some of the restoration away from your home, but always provide a detailed inventory and discuss which items you want to invest additional resources in recovering.
 
After the storm passes, you need to contact SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange for fast and efficient flood damage restoration. Call (386) 788-0358 to schedule an inspection within hours.

Restoring House Contents from Fire Damage in Daytona Beach Properties

Fire Damage Restoring House Contents from Fire Damage in Daytona Beach Properties Kitchen Fires in Daytona Beach Lead to Much Smoke Damage & Odors--Call SERVPRO

The Degree of Damage Dictates the Steps for Cleanup After Fires

Cooking is one of the most satisfying activities in the world. It is also one of the best ways to bring people together. Unfortunately, studies have shown that cooking accounts for almost 50 percent of all house fires, with cooking equipment boasting 19 percent of home fire deaths. Indeed, an unattended skillet or pan on a stove burner can lead to a fire strong enough to bring the house down within hours, if not minutes.
 
To be safe, you need to have a restoration company at hand. SERVPRO has highly skilled technicians who can restore house contents from fire damage in your Daytona Beach property anytime. Our emergency response is swift and efficient, and we use effective tools and techniques that are up to par with IICRC recommendations.

SERVPRO technicians consider many things during the fire damage restoration process. When cleaning cabinets, for instance, wood finish around the drawer handles often contains the pre-existing damage. We must check this area before cleaning begins.
 
The intensity of the smoke damage determines the technique we use. Cleanup on light fixtures is done when restoring the ceiling. The electrical power should be turned off before dealing with any electrical fixture. Chandeliers are relatively harder to clean, especially if they come with decorative trim that requires detailed cleaning. With many years of experience, our technicians can gauge the concentration of smoke residue and choose the most efficient cleaning technique.
 
Insulation is usually more costly to clean up than to replace. Smoke damage can change its appearance, albeit without compromising its insulating capabilities. If applicable, we can deal with the fire damage by replacing the top 3-4 inches of insulation. However, smoke deodorization is necessary before adding a new layer of insulation, to get rid of toxic odors. If water affected the insulation, in most cases tossing and starting with new material is the correct choice to make.

We use two main deodorization methods: thermal fogging and ozone deodorization. Both are designed to neutralize bad odors resulting from the fire damage. The most common challenge is determining the source of each odor, as different odors originate from different materials. Some odor particles are so tiny that they can penetrate virtually any surface. That is where thermal fogging products enter the areas of these particulates, mimicking the trail of the heated smoke, and chemically alter the smelly specs. However, SERVPRO restorers deal with all sorts of odors and therefore have a special procedure for identifying and eliminating them.
 
In some cases, it may be necessary to initiate a pack-out during the fire damage restoration. A pack-out involves moving your contents to a separate, safe location. It is very labor intensive and only necessary under special circumstances – for instance when there is a need to speed up the restoration process, or the structure has sustained too much damage to accommodate the items.

A fire disaster in your home can lead to considerable loss of property. Fortunately, you can count on SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange, a locally owned company, to minimize the fire damage. Call us today at (386) 788-0358.

It was a normal Friday at the local college, classes were almost finished for the day and faculty was getting ready to head home. One of the maintenance men noticed a pump from the water tank was showing low pressure and as a back up two more pumps came online to make up the difference. What was happening? A pipe burst inside of a maintenance room of the science building. Unfortunately the door were closed and the room began to fill with water until it reached approximately 6-7ft and a wall gave way releasing over 10,000 gallons of water into the 1st floor of the building.
