Develop a SERVPRO ERP Today For Your Port Orange Business 

Like many other entrepreneurs in Port Orange, your business depends on residents and guests seeking entertainment, nourishment, or hospitality. Being open and available for your target audience is vital for your company's success. If you knew that consulting with an experienced disaster remediation firm ahead of a crisis could reduce the risk of even temporary closure, would you make that call for an evaluation?

Fire damage to your Port Orange hotel and restaurant could be the end of your business. Statistics bear out that nearly 50 percent of enterprises that decide to close even briefly to manage a fire or other catastrophic event risk never opening their doors again. We take on the negativity of that statistic with the positive, proactive approach of our Emergency Ready Plan and Profile (ERP).

Before any problems present, get in touch with SERVPRO. We send an experienced project manager to your site for a no-obligation assessment of your emergency readiness. Our manager walks through all areas of your business -- the hotel, restaurant, gift shop, pool, spa, business center, laundry room, and more. We develop a digital layout of your property and discuss your operations with you or one of your trusted employees. Expect us to reveal your vulnerabilities and encourage your strengths to prevent disaster and to help us be ready if a fire or other loss does occur.

Take our recommendations to be better positioned to manage a fire disaster seriously, and also use our mobile app to complete your own walkthrough. Identify the locations of utility shutoffs, and list vendors and contractors that provided and installed your equipment and systems so we can contact them for assistance to get your business back online. Declare SERVPRO to be your preferred remediation partner, and designate employees, family, or friends to act instead if you are unavailable during the fire emergency.

SERVPRO and you both hope never to need the ERP, but if a fire breaks out, our familiarity with your physical plant and operations helps us respond more efficiently. The Plan and Profile create a digital database our crews use for reference to speed resolution of your fire damage.

SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange is ready to plan for potential emergencies and to implement that design with all due speed. Call us at (386) 788-0358 to take steps to protect your business.

Our Technicians Determine the Cause of the Mold Infestation Before Remediation

Depending on the kind of material mold takes hold of, various types exist. In other words, the mold that develops on the concrete or masonry surfaces on your Daytona Beach property is an entirely different species than the mold that forms on your walls, plastic, or metallic surfaces.

Water Removal Technicians In Port Orange Discuss Problems With Clogged Sinks

The kitchen inside your Port Orange house is a common place for moisture-related issues to occur. Wherever there are several waterpipes running into a room, it is likely that a disaster occurs that causes you to have to conduct water removal. Plumbing failures are the most common type of problem, but appliance malfunctions can also create issues. For instance, if your dishwasher breaks or garbage disposal fails, building materials can get damaged. If something in your kitchen leaks, and contents or building materials near the room get wet, then it is wise to call in a professional water removal company such as SERVPRO.

Even the most minor problem such as your sink clogging can cause your kitchen extensive damage. If your sink ever backs up and overflows, you could be forced to call in professional water removal technicians in Port Orange such as SERVPRO. As soon as your sink overflows, moisture can quickly start soaking into your kitchen's building materials. Everything below the kitchen including the cabinets, trim and flooring can suffer from damage when your kitchen sink backs up. If the moisture is excessive, then your building materials can get saturated and ruined.

If water ever comes out of your sink, you could have contamination problems. Any water coming from a source other than clean, fresh outlets must be dealt with differently. When a sink or drain running from it leaks, it is considered a category two water damage situation and the source is considered grey water. Category two scenarios mean that there is a chance that the moisture soaking into your kitchen's building materials is hazardous.

When dealing with grey water, any porous materials have to be removed due to possible contamination. If non-porous materials such as tiles get wet, we mop up the contaminated water and then clean and sanitize the affected areas with antibacterial chemicals. Once all of the liquid H2O gets removed from your kitchen, we set up drying equipment and dry out your structural components. If you ever notice your sink overflowing, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 24/7.

How an Unattended Stove Can Cause Fire Damage in Daytona Beach

2/25/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Damage How an Unattended Stove Can Cause Fire Damage in Daytona Beach  Leaving food unattended while cooking can cause fires.

Leaving Your Stove Unattended Can Cause Fire Damage in Your Daytona Beach Home

Some recipes require that the food cook for an extended length of time; however, leaving your stove unattended could lead to fire damage happening inside of your kitchen. You should never leave your home, work in the yard, or occupy another floor of your home while something is cooking inside of your kitchen. While leaving food for a few minutes most likely won't lead to any problems, leaving it alone for hours leaves entirely too much space for an accident to happen while you are not around to address it.  

While it is always best to try and prevent accidents from happening, they can occur despite your best efforts, such as the fire damage inside of your Daytona Beach kitchen. It is essential to call for help as soon as possible after extinguishing the kitchen fire. Getting professionals inside of your home can ensure remediation of the damage left behind. The longer that you wait to address fire damage, the more difficult it becomes to remediate it smoothly.  

When you get in touch with SERVPRO, our technicians can rush to your home within hours of your initial call. The fire broke out from your stovetop and foodstuffs has been burned onto the surface of your countertops and the stove itself. While the fire in your kitchen was not significant, and you managed to put it out swiftly, it still left behind a foul smell and stains on your countertops. However, SERVPRO has the necessary tools to address these problems.  

Our technicians can use a chemical cleaning solution to break up the grime and soot that attached itself to your stove and your countertops. Sometimes, abrasive scrubbing methods must be used to remove soot left behind by a fire, but SERVPRO always tries the gentlest method first.  

When it comes to the foul odor in the air, SERVPRO can set up a couple of different devices in your home, depending on the severity of the fire and if your family relocated to a temporary location. Because the fire in your home was small, as most are, our techs can use a thermal fogger or an air scrubber to remove the malodor from the air.  

When a fire occurs inside of your home, always get help as soon as possible. Get in contact with SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange by calling (386) 788-0358. Day or night, we're open to helping you.

Our Fire Damage Specialists Can Help Restore Your Commercial Property In Daytona Beach

Commercial Our Fire Damage Specialists Can Help Restore Your Commercial Property In Daytona Beach If a fire causes damage to your business, call (386) 788-0358 to schedule a visit and get started on cleanup and restoration immediately.

Commercial Fire Damage Restoration In Daytona Beach

For many tourists, Daytona Beach is Florida. There’s no place they would rather go, and the opportunities for small businesses are extensive. Depending on the time of year, almost everything operates on a 24-hour schedule, so even a small incident like a limited kitchen fire can result in a large loss of receipts.

After a diner in Daytona Beach suffers fire damage, commercial cleanup needs to happen quickly and correctly. SERVPRO restoration teams train to all industry standards when it comes to cleaning appliances, furniture, and the structure itself.

Thanks to required fire suppression systems, most fires are extinguished quickly. Physical damage is limited, so initial efforts involve cleaning grills and other kitchen equipment to prevent secondary damage from water or chemicals used to stop the fire. Our technicians use dry sponges to wipe down all surfaces to remove them, so they are safe to use again.

If there are smoke residues present, SERVPRO technicians use sponges and mild cleaning agents to break them up and restore cooking and food preparation stations to a clean, functional condition. These same residues are also present on ceilings and floors.

Since these are not surfaces where food is prepared, team members use stronger cleaners to remove residues. If it is a drop ceiling overhead, it may be cheaper for them to remove and replace ceiling tiles, rather than expend the labor hours and cleaning agents to restore them.

For tiled or concrete floors, personnel uses the strongest cleaner available, often a chlorine agent, to ensure they remove every trace of the fire so that they meet health standards. Then, they dry the floor completely to ensure there is no moisture pooled under a refrigeration unit or prep table where inert mold spores might expand and grow into another problem.

At SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange, our goal is to help reopen every business to customers and meet the local and state requirements for their health and safety. If a fire causes damage to your business, call (386) 788-0358 to schedule a visit and get started on cleanup and restoration immediately.

Don't Panic When Your Washing Machine Fails And Causes Damage To Your Daytona Beach Home

2/14/2019 (Permalink)

Water Damage Don't Panic When Your Washing Machine Fails And Causes Damage To Your Daytona Beach Home While the washing machine serves an important role within your house, it can also prove to be the source of considerable water damage.

Washing Machine Failures That Damage Daytona Beach Homes

As helpful as washing machines have become for Daytona Beach homeowners, these like all water-fed appliances, have the potential to cause significant damages to a house without the proper upkeep and use. A common potential problem for washing machines is its installation on uneven or slick surfaces. With unbalanced loads, washing machines can rock, sometimes violently, pulling at the hose connections against the wall. If the hose pulls free from the fixture, or from the machine itself, there is no check valve in place to stop the unabated flow of water onto the laundry room floor before you manually turn it off on your own.

With the disconnection of a supply line to the washing machine, water can flow and pool quickly, causing an immediate need for professional water removal services in your Daytona Beach home. Our SERVPRO professionals can understand the severity of a situation like this, as water damage can spread quickly from the initial point of exposure throughout a home, so we can respond quickly to the emergency with the equipment to help.

Extraction is a key component to restoring a damaged home in these conditions, and our rapid response team arrives with several machines and tools designed to remove excess water quickly from this exposed area. We have portable sump pumps, gas-powered pumps, extraction wands, and weighted extractors to remove as much of the water from the laundry area and adjacent affected rooms quickly.

Drying is vital to follow the extraction as exposed materials like linoleum tiles could get preserved with the right response to the emergency. Our objective is to protect exposed materials when possible and reduce the need for tear out and reconstruction. Air movers, dehumidifiers, drying mats, and our injectidry system can all play vital roles in eliminating moisture pockets in flooring and wall cavities.

While the washing machine serves an important role within your house, it can also prove to be the source of considerable water damage without careful upkeep and monitoring. If you get faced with a water loss incident, give our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange rapid response team a call at (386) 788-0358.

Mold Remediation Call Our Experts And Make Your Port Orange Home Safe Again As soon as you smell or see mold in your home call SERVPRO to get rid of it before it spreads.

Mold Damage Cleanup for Your Port Orange Home

If you walk into your bathroom in your Port Orange home one day to see that unmistakable patches of black mold have begun to grow in a damp corner, your first reaction might be to panic. After all, mold can create health effects. However, the mold can be cleaned up if you reach out to a professional remediation company.

Once you find mold damage in your Port Orange home, you shouldn’t hesitate to reach out to our experts at SERVPRO, since the mold continues to grow and spread until it is cleaned. We have the training and tools get the situation under control in no time, making your home safe once again.

Our first step once we arrive at your home is to find the source of the moisture which is causing the mold and deal with it right away. After this, SERVPRO techs visually assess the extent of the damage. We take detailed measurements of the affected area and take humidity and moisture readings to help us determine the best course of action.

We then carefully contain the area with a secure, thick plastic barrier which helps to prevent the mold damage from contaminating other areas of your home which are clean. Vents and air ducts are also sealed off so the mold cannot enter and spread throughout your home.

Before we do any structural cleaning, we use special air scrubbers that have HEPA filters to create negative air pressure in the room. We do this to filter the air of the mold spores. If there are any building materials that cannot be salvaged, like baseboard, drywall, tack strips, or ceiling tiles, we double-bag them and discard them safely according to federal and local regulations. Any surfaces that remain like glass tile, ceramic or wood are treated with an anti-microbial germicide.

All surfaces, including walls, floors, and the ceiling are HEPA-vacuumed, which is a very effective way of removing tiny particles, such as the mold spores. In this way, we ensure that we can get the area thoroughly cleaned and safe again.

SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach/Port Orange are the ones to call when you find mold in your home in Ponce Inlet, Allandale, or Harbor Oaks. We can safely clean the affected area for you before it spreads too quickly when you call us at (386) 788-0358.
