Port Orange Resort Floods Can Damage Business Without Swift Action 

Resorts present a pleasant and accommodating location for tourists and travelers staying in Port Orange. Unfortunately, being a coastal community, businesses, and homes throughout the Greater Daytona area remain at risk for detrimental and fierce storm systems that can destroy properties and significantly compromise structures in their path. Almost equally devastating is the presence of flooding after these disasters, making it even more problematic to return to business as usual for your staff and your guests. Our professionals can help. 

Our SERVPRO team has seen the devastating effects of flood damage in Port Orange properties, and with running a resort in the region, you have multiple structures, venues, and aesthetic elements to the property that must get protected or restored when storm systems pass through with ferocity. We have all of the necessary equipment already stocked and prepared for storm relief, but also to offer our customers emergency reconstruction services and effective mitigation and recovery options in the form of extraction and drying. 

There is no time to lose when it comes to reducing the spread and severity of flood damage to your property. Regardless of how this flooding occurs, we have the experienced technicians accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to handle jobs of any magnitude.

DIY Water Removal Strategies for Daytona Beach Homes 

Homeowners have always played an intricate role in the severity of damage to their Daytona Beach home when disasters like fire, water, and flooding occur. It is partly a fact of the fast response and reaction to the situation to secure the experienced restorative professionals like our SERVPRO team, as with water damages, minutes and hours can make a substantial difference in what materials and structural elements become too severely damaged to preserve. For those that seek to handle this recovery on their own, there are specific strategies and equipment that can make the process go more smoothly. 

Before you can successfully implement DIY water removal in Daytona Beach homes, there are some machines and information that you want to acquire. Our SERVPRO professionals encourage area residents to take an active stance in the quality of their properties and work towards what these structures need after a disaster, but that also comes with an understanding that the work happens safely, and the result addresses all damage present in the house. 

Many homeowners do not have an inventory of recovery tools to choose from, let alone a selection of water removal machines at their disposal. If you find you lack water removal equipment, these devices can get purchased or rented from area home improvement and hardware stores. Many homes have wet/dry vacs, especially property owners in the lower lying, flood-prone areas of Daytona. 

A tip to ensure that the area gets dried thoroughly after extraction takes place is to purchase or rent moisture detection tools such as hygrometers or thermal imagery cameras. It might be a challenge to track down, but these are non-invasive approaches to locate moisture pockets and ensure that the work has gotten accomplished sufficiently before you deem the job complete. 

Many considerations exist with water removal, and the most pressing of these is acquiring the right tools for the job. If you feel like extraction and drying of your water damaged home is too difficult, our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange professionals can arrive quickly to help with the full measure of our recovery and mitigation equipment. Give us a call anytime you need us at (386) 788-0358.

How Curling Irons can Singe Your Port Orange Home

Fire Damage How Curling Irons can Singe Your Port Orange Home Did you know these appliances can be fire hazards? Make sure they are turned off after each use.

Forgetting to Turn Off Small Appliances Leaves Smoky Odors in Your Port Orange Apartment 

Residents in Port Orange lead busy lives, and preparing for different activities means getting clothing and yourself ready. Curling irons to clothes irons and many other electrical items get hot enough to scorch hair and fabric. They can also start a fire, even with cords and other components posing no other risks.

Leaving appliances on when leaving your home increases risks of smoke and fire damage in Port Orange to the area, and possibly your entire house. SERVPRO's technicians can get things back in order again, and help get you past such disasters. We also help in every way possible so you can include documentation of the work needed with any claims you file with your insurance adjuster.

The particles in the smoke and soot begin breaking down as they cool off and continue to do so, sending odors into the air. The presence of such odors persists as long as soot remains inside the home. We can help eliminate the scent, as well as the visible signs of a fire.

When the building services crew from SERVPRO replaces the walls and ceiling of a charred bathroom or other space, it leaves the area with a reduced number of particles. Opening up walls and ceilings to replace them can also reveal hidden soot. We brush this out and vacuum it up with HEPA-filtered vacs. In some situations, we also seal the surfaces to prevent odors from leaking into the air.

Our goal is to keep odor-causing soot particles from getting into the air you breathe. Another problem that soot can cause for you is a constant dustiness on surfaces within your home. When smoke gets into your HVAC system, the settling of dust can significantly increase all through your dwelling. Cleaning the ventilation system to remove soot is another one of our building services that our customers depend.  Ventilation cleaning helps control odors, as well as the amount of visible dust.

Carpeting, even when not singed or otherwise harmed by a fire, often holds the majority of the soot. We thoroughly clean the carpets and then apply much more pleasing scents via injectable liquids directly into the carpet's padding.

We wipe down freshly cleaned finished wood with lemon oil-based polish, which helps keep new particles of soot from embedding themselves into the pores of the wood. Other surfaces that, even with cleaning, might still contain smoke residue, we seal with appropriate sealants that do not mar the appearance. Personal belongings with a layer of soot often fare well with specialized cleaning techniques, including washable items that we can place in an ultrasonic water bath.

SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange is always ready to handle any amount of smoke or fire damage, including odors, in your home in the Daytona Beach area, Harbor Oaks, or Ponce Inlet. Call us at (386) 788-0358, so we can show you how our restoration work makes everything "Like it never even happened."

Hurricane season is upon us, and homeowners must be ready to act quickly should a storm occur in Daytona Beach. SERVPRO is ready and equipped to respond when disaster strikes. Our technicians are certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and trained to handle precisely these scenarios. All you need to do is call.

Floodwater carries debris and organisms into your home, which is why our SERVPRO team quickly removes any surfaces saturated with water, such as carpets and some upholstery. Leaving any of these items behind poses a threat to your health and may encourage the proliferation of mold in your home. Our crew is well-versed in environmental guidelines, so you do not have to worry about the proper disposal of any of the items in your home.

Eliminating the water from your home is a priority. If the flood is significant, our SERVPRO technicians can use a truck-mounted pump guided to the proper sewage option to pump the water out of your home. For less volume, we may use submersible pumps and dehumidifiers to extract all water. Following the extraction, our team focuses on making sure your home is back to normal humidity levels as we disinfect it. Foggers and cleaning solutions are just two of the industry techniques we are ready to use to leave your home in pristine condition.

Hurricane season in Daytona Beach can be scary. Knowing that SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange is ready to help when disaster strikes should give you a sense of safety. When you need us, call (386) 788-0358 and let us leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”

Our Fire Damage Experts Can Remove Smoke Residue From Your Daytona Beach Shop

Commercial Our Fire Damage Experts Can Remove Smoke Residue From Your Daytona Beach Shop To make fire losses, “Like it never even happened,” give us a call today at (386) 788-0358.

Removing Smoke Residue In A Daytona Beach Shop

Smoke residues can be a widespread concern that affects a broad area of your Daytona Beach shop, spreading far from the ignition point. Through both the HVAC system and air ducts, smoke residues and particulates can continually cycle and spread through the facility until this circulation gets shut down. Smoke effects can be hazardous to a shop owner’s health and to their building without the appropriate training, equipment, and products to address these symptoms appropriately.

One of the primary concerns of a shop owner dealing with fire damage in their Daytona Beach store is the effect that smoke particulates can have on the stock and inventory. With this being one of the more widespread conditions, along with harsh odors, it is an effect best left to our content management division. Our SERVPRO technicians at the shop can remove this sediment with the right equipment, products, and practices, but our contents department has an intricate process for restoring damaged inventory from your shop.

From the time that the removed items reach our facility nearby, our contents department specialists have prepared a plan to restore all contents in route. With cataloging each item and its condition, we can quickly separate stock to reach the appropriate stations, including our ultrasonic cleaning tanks. These advanced tools can entirely remove soot and smoke residues from the surface of materials by using bubbles vibrating at a high frequency.

While many of the materials and structural elements for the shop must get cleaned on site, areas like carpeting must get attention quickly to prevent the same staining and marring from embedding the residue into carpet fibers with foot traffic. If staining has already occurred to an advanced degree, our SERVPRO professionals might need to remove it and replace it.

Protecting your investment in your inventory after a fire is almost as critical as getting your doors back open to the public. Our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange professionals can help you with both. To make fire losses, “Like it never even happened,” give us a call today at (386) 788-0358.

Did the Recent Storms Cause Flooding in Your Port Orange Home?

6/19/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Did the Recent Storms Cause Flooding in Your Port Orange Home? High winds and heavy rains can cause structural damage and allow water to enter your home.

Structural Compromise that Results in Flooded Port Orange Homes

Residents of the Port Orange area can attest that severe weather systems are par for the course. Throughout every season of the year, storm systems can sweep across the state or slam in from the Atlantic Coast. These disasters can significantly damage structures throughout the area, removing portions of roofs, siding, knocking over trees and utility poles, and breaking windows of the house. Apart from this destruction to the property from the outside, the newly exposed vulnerabilities can allow for more dangerous effects like flooding to occur. 

Many homeowners cannot fully appreciate the destructive capacity of flood damage until it occurs in their Port Orange residence. Our mission as SERVPRO professionals is to provide every customer with effective mitigation and recovery solutions, beginning with our fast response to these emergencies in your time of trouble. We arrive with the full measure of restorative equipment and recovery tools designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of cleanup for your damaged property. 

Structural compromise is the first obstacle that our professionals must overcome when we first arrive. We have a full-service division of contractors that can help with emergency board up and tarping services. Both of these options can reduce the penetration of flood water into damaged areas of your home while protecting the house from further elemental damages in other ways as well. Once the storm has passed, our licensed contractors can work to reconstruct the compromised portions fully. 

Preventing further structural compromise within the home is also an important task that we do. We must assess the full scope of the damage using probing and non-probative moisture readers and detectors. These tools determine the amount of moisture and dampness trapped in inaccessible areas and hard-to-reach locations. In many situations, and based on severity, it is possible to address saturated areas and materials without making a single demolition cut. 

Flooding is a traumatic situation for homeowners, and that is why our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange team works to restore its effects quickly. Contact us anytime you need us at (386) 788-0358.

Water Damage Water Damage Can Be Overwhelming in Your Daytona Beach Residence Don't let your apartment get overcome by water damage. Contact SERVPRO today for remediation assistance.

Plumbing Leak in Your Daytona Beach Apartment

Water loss incidents and emergencies can come from a variety of sources, and plumbing failure can be among the most catastrophic of these sources in your Daytona Beach apartment. Even a small leak can quickly begin to pool and spread throughout your unit, beginning at the breach and moving out in every available direction. Overcoming this spread often involves professionals who can work quickly to contain the effects before too many other apartments also share these compromised conditions.

Even with a fast reaction from the apartment owner to shut off the main supply of water to the Daytona Beach property, in most cases, substantial water damage exists already. Our SERVPRO professionals understand the value of a fast response to substantial loss incidents, especially those that could affect more than one residence at a time like a plumbing break in a shared wall. With sophisticated detection tools and mitigation equipment, we can begin to restore these effects from the time that we first arrive.

As is the case with all plumbing breaches, our technicians must work quickly from the time that we arrive to determine the source of the water damage throughout the unit. We have multiple moisture content readers, thermal and infrared cameras, and even leak detection equipment to utilize audio cues to narrow the precise point of a break in the plumbing pipes. Once the source has gotten identified, our contractors can carefully remove a small portion of drywall to access this breach and repair it.

Cleaning up the excess water and drying out saturated elements is also an important step of this recovery of your apartment, and the faster these effects get addressed, the less that neighboring units become susceptible to damage as well. Our SERVPRO professionals have advanced extraction and drying equipment to make water loss incidents “Like it never even happened.”

Improving Odors and Air After a South Daytona Structure Fire

Indoor air quality is often a considerable concern after fire loss incidents occur in South Daytona properties. Without the appropriate measures taken immediately after a fire gets extinguished, damaging effects can spread throughout the entire property. Not only does this leave widespread effects like soot and smoke residues to combat, but it also can allow smoke and other harsh odors to move through the property via ductile systems to affect multiple rooms of the house.

With these potentially hazardous effects after fire damage in your South Daytona home, it is important to get the right personnel and restoration specialists working to improve conditions and indoor air quality within your property after the incident. Our SERVPRO professionals have an extensive inventory of recovery and mitigation equipment, including many units designed to combat air quality threats and odors after many types of disaster.

Odors are a common effect that threatens comfortable living for families even when the other damages from a fire did not force relocation. Not only can these noxious odors spread through multiple floors, materials, and rooms, they can also require specialized equipment and focused efforts to overcome. The technicians that we dispatch to your property arrive with many units capable of addressing odors from thermal and UV foggers to our ozone machines.

Our professionals also commonly utilize hydroxyl generators on account of their filtering ability to improve indoor air quality combined with their function of reducing harsh odors present around the unit. With a higher concentration of particulates, debris, soot, and smoke residue particles moving through the affected environment, equipment like the hydroxyl generator can work to begin filtering out hazardous content from the house while also preparing for the deodorization efforts to follow.


We strive to provide every customer with a comprehensive recovery experience that begins with a full assessment of their property and continues through restorative efforts like air quality purification and deodorization of affected areas, materials, and contents of a home. Our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange professionals are available 24/7 by calling (386) 788-0358.

Water Damage Restoration for Your Port Orange Home


The kitchen in your Port Orange home is the center of all your family’s activity and where you enjoy the company of friends. Your kitchen is essential to your home, but an ugly truth balances it – your kitchen holds a variety of water lines, pipes, and appliances which use water, so spills and leaks are always possible and sometimes can cause unsightly water damage. One such area you need to keep an eye on is your kitchen sink.

If you spotted a leak around your kitchen sink you need to find the source right away and get help cleaning and restoring the water damage in your Port Orange kitchen. SERVPRO, a professional water damage remediation company, is here to help you anytime you need. With our trained staff and industrial tools, we can have your kitchen looking as if nothing ever happened in no time.

Your sink is obviously where the most water is likely used in your kitchen, so it holds the most significant risk of causing water damage. Performing some routine essential maintenance can help you avoid any big disasters. It is very easy to overlook the space under the sink cabinet where you store all the cleaning supplies, but if you miss a leak under your sink, severe water damage can be the result.

Drying the walls and floors behind or underneath your kitchen sink cabinet can sometimes be tricky. The wall behind the cabinet can take additional time to dry since there are multiple layers of drywall and cabinet backing. If the cabinet has no back, SERVPRO technicians may drill holes in the wall to let the air circulate inside the wall cavity. Once we are sure it is dry, we cover or patch the hole. When the cabinet has a back, the drying times are extended due to the multiple layers that became wet.

The area under your cabinet usually referred to as the toe kick, is typically made of a less expensive material than the cabinet itself. Base molding might be mounted on the front of the toe kick. We need to remove the base molding and drill holes into the toe kick so the air can flow underneath the cabinet. Once the drying process is complete, we replace the base or toe kick.

SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach/Port Orange is available to help you clean up the mess of a leaky sink in your home in Allandale, Ponce Inlet, or South Daytona anytime you need us. Just reach out by dialing (386) 788-0358 as soon as you find the issue so we can get your home back to the way it was before the incident.
