SERVPRO Can Provide Safe Mold Remediation to Your Property

Mold can be quite the nightmare to homeowners in Daytona Beach. It can cause health effects to you and your family and cause much damage to your home. Controlling your indoor climate, using dehumidifiers, and making sure your AC is the appropriate size for your house are just a few of the things you can do to help prevent mold growth.
 
When mold and mold damage still strike in your Daytona Beach home, it is imperative that you move quickly to take care of it. Mold can spread throughout your home quickly to other surfaces. It is not enough to just clean up the mold. The problem that caused it in the first place needs to be taken care of, and the affected area should be sanitized. SERVPRO can take care of all of this for you, as we have the knowledge and tools that are needed.
 
Whenever SERVPRO technicians work in contaminated environments, including mold, we wear personal protective equipment, which includes full-body suits with hoods, latex and rubber gloves, and eye protection such as goggles or full-face masks. We may also wear full or half-face respirators or even powered air-purifying respirators which supply air to a full-face mask. None of our staff begin working on a mold remediation project before they have the proper safety training and are comfortable with the information. Smaller infestations may require only minimal PPE during the remediation process.
 
The method used to clean mold depends on the kind of surface it is on. Nonporous materials can usually be wiped and cleaned, but porous materials with visible growth must many times be removed and discarded (an example being drywall.)
 
Many times, HEPA filtered vacuuming, and damp wiping can remove invisible mold spores and organisms which have settled, even when on porous materials. The structure and contents are then dried to stop any more growth. Dehumidifiers do not have much airflow and can be used during the containment and removal procedures.
 
At SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach/Port Orange, we take mold damage seriously and follow all necessary steps to clean up the mold thoroughly after fixing the moisture problem. We end with sanitizing the area in your home in Port Orange, Daytona Beach, or Harbor Oaks when you call us at (386) 788-0358.

SERVPRO Provides Water Extraction and Cleanup Post Storm Damage

Residents in Daytona Beach are still cleaning up after the latest hurricanes. Estimates regarding the length of time for complete recovery varies considerably, depending on the level of harm. Homes and their safety levels are much easier to attain than the economic recovery of the same area.

As homeowners in Daytona clean out debris and other types of hurricane damage affecting their properties, many find themselves overwhelmed by the sheer amount of hazards present in their own homes. These hazards come in many forms and can create different kinds of problems for the individuals who suffer them. Sharp objects can puncture the skin, and this can lead to severe infections.  

The Centers for Disease Control

list several items needed to safely perform cleanup activities after disastrous hurricanes sweep through an area. However, after the financial strain that many families experience immediately after a hurricane, purchasing all of the recommended items can become quite expensive, even if they are available for purchase. Additionally, the heat, occasionally sporadic electric power, and massive labor requirements quickly make cleaning up nearly impossible in many situations. Being inexperienced and without the proper tools easily backfires on many homeowners while performing cleanup tasks. We can help.

SERVPRO - Commercial Water Removal in Daytona Beach Hotels

Commercial  SERVPRO - Commercial Water Removal in Daytona Beach Hotels SERVPRO of Daytona Beach / Port Orange will work around the clock until your commercial property is restored.

Daytona Beach Hotels Can Receive Water Removal Services Provided By SERVPRO

Recent storms did not affect Daytona Beach as severely as the western part of Florida. Our area was fortunate, but that does not mean area businesses do not have to worry about water-related disasters. Broken intake lines, failing appliances, and clogged drains can spill just as much water across conference room floors and down hallways as a hurricane.

Commercial water removal in a Daytona Beach hotel usually means two tasks for SERVPRO response teams. We pull water from carpets before they rot and pump water out of utility basements.

Basements are usually the more straightforward task. As long as the utility room is safe for our technicians, we can pump out any standing water within a few hours. If the power was shut off, we bring in a commercial grade generator from our inventory to provide uninterrupted power until we complete the job.

More difficult is drawing out water and trapped moisture from carpets. The task is less complicated than in a private residence since hotel carpeting rarely has a carpet pad underneath. The process takes longer, of course, due to the vast number of rooms and hallways compared to a house. SERVPRO teams begin by opening every door and window in as many rooms and halls as possible. Then, we install box fans to bring in dry, outside air to replace the colder, damp air drawn out by exhaust fans at crucial exit points.

Next, we use extraction wands to lift water from the carpet. These devices are designed to remove water without harming the individual threads of the nape. Technicians inspect each carpet for damage and other signs that water may have gotten underneath them. If necessary, we use space heaters and dehumidifiers to augment the wands and speed up the process by carefully drying the carpet and remove moisture directly from the surrounding air.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources


Putting our state back together includes getting our businesses up and running. With tourism being such a considerable part of the economy, SERVPRO of Daytona Beach / Port Orange understands how crucial it is to keep open our hotels.

Heavy Rains Can Cause Flood Damage to Daytona Beach Homes

10/13/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Heavy Rains Can Cause Flood Damage to Daytona Beach Homes Our SERVPRO team is available 24/7 to restore your Daytona Beach flood damage.

SERVPRO Can Restore Your Daytona Beach Home From Flood Damage 


Heavy rains in Daytona Beach are a frequent occurrence that occasionally leads to flooding in the area. Homeowners are encouraged to protect their homes in the face of these emergencies, which can lead to immense property damage. There is no "one size fits all" method of measuring the risk of flooding in your location, so it is important to take precautions whether or not your house is close to water.

Given the unpredictable nature of storms, heavy rains, and floods, it is essential to have a reliable restoration company on standby. At SERVPRO, we are dedicated to controlling any type of flood damage caused by a weather event in Daytona Beach. We are a locally-based and operated business, which makes us a part of your community too! Our technicians are professionally trained and certified by the IICRC, thereby ensuring that our methods are up to scratch with industry standards.

Your roof plays a major role in preventing flood damage. Check for soft spots, loose shingles, and surface divots that may be vulnerable to rough weather conditions. One crack in the roof can cause water leakage and, subsequently, internal damage to your walls and ceilings.

To minimize water damage on your foundation, SERVPRO technicians can help you install a proper gutter system. It is important to keep your gutters clean to prevent clogging and, consequently, water overflow. Our flood damage restoration experts can recommend special products for keeping your gutters free of debris. Gutters keep rainwater from running down the walls of your house.

Installing a rainwater catchment system can also help reduce the impact of flood damage. Ideally, the rainwater moves from the gutter to the downspout and then pours into the barrel or tank. Here, the water can serve for seasonal or irrigation purposes. The type of rainwater collector you use depends on what you need it for.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Flood damage from heavy rainfalls can be costly to your home. If you find yourself on the wrong side of a heavy storm, SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange is here to help. We have a stock of resources that can reverse your property to preloss conditions as quickly as possible, "Like it never even happened." Call us anytime at (386) 788-0358.

Water Damage Fast Water Removal in Daytona with Cutting-Edge Equipment Drips Lead to Daytona Area Water Damage--Call SERVPRO

SERVPRO Arrives with the Crews Swiftly to Extract Water from YOur Daytona Property

As a homeowner, seeing standing water in your house when you arrive home from a vacation is a nightmare. What happened?! Based on their experience, our SERVPRO techs say the problem often starts with a water heater past its prime. A tiny crack in the appliance, a leaky hose, a rusting interior, all can cause excess moisture and flooding.

The typical lifespan of most water heaters is 8 to 12 years. After that, homeowners take a risk with each passing year. The appliance is a complex system of metal, hoses, and wires. Once rust gets in, it causes elements to deteriorate. As components weaken, excess moisture escapes and the water heater releases more and more water. Drip by drip, your basement floods. Water removal in Daytona is the first step to fixing the problem and getting your home back to normal.
 
The team at SERVPRO has specialized equipment to remove standing water quickly and efficiently. We know first hand the damage that flooding causes. It ruins carpets, destroys electrical equipment, and encourages mold and mildew to grow in your boxes of stored possessions. That is why we start our cleanup by bringing in industrial strength pumps, air movers, and dehumidifiers. We concentrate on extracting as much water as possible, then set up the air movers and dehumidifiers to speed moisture evaporation.
 
We follow the standards and best practices determined by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, respected throughout the field. After training, we receive certification in a range of services, including water damage restoration, odor control, microbial remediation, and drying.
 
What does this mean for you? SERVPRO experts quickly get rid of the water and moisture and then move on to cleaning and restoration. We use advanced cleaning agents that remove residue and sanitize the surfaces of the affected area. Soon your home is ready once again for your daily activities.
 
SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange is here to help—24/7--with water removal and other emergencies, (386) 788-0358. We are centrally located to serve South Daytona, Daytona Beach, and Harbor Oaks.

Our Technicians Determine the Cause of the Mold Infestation Before Remediation

With that said, a qualified mold remediation company, like SERVPRO, is likely to look for the source of water intrusion causing the problem, before attempting to mitigate any damage that might exist.

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.
