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

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 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.

What Secondary Issues Can Result From Water Damage to Your Daytona Home?

Why SERVPRO What Secondary Issues Can Result From Water Damage to Your Daytona Home? Storms happen in Florida. Call SERVPRO for all of your water damage restoration needs.

Daytona Beach's Flood Damage Technicians Talk About Testing Instruments

Severe weather can strike your Daytona Beach neighborhood and create conditions that ruin your building materials and structural components. High-speed winds can blow landscaping rocks or break tree branches off and throw them into your exterior walls or windows and cause excessive flood damage to take place inside your dwelling. Holes created in one of your walls or windows can allow moisture to enter your home and ruin your contents or building materials. When structural components get wet, they can lose their structural integrity and weaken. If organic substances inside your home stay wet for more than 48 hours, then your flood damage situation can turn into a scenario where mold is present.  

It is wise to call in a professional company like SERVPRO to prevent secondary problems like mold growth or issues caused by excessive humidity. We have experience in dealing with a wide variety of flood damage problems in Daytona Beach. Our highly trained team is good at diagnosing even the problems that may not be noticeable to the plain eye at first. As soon as we show up at your residence, we begin the inspection phase. We first inspect the affected areas of your house and make sure that there are not any potential safety hazards. After we deem the working area safe, we begin inspecting your contents and building materials for water-related issues to see what items got affected and how bad the issues got.  

To test where moisture went, our SERVPRO technicians use moisture sensors and specialized meters. We always use the most advanced technology during the restoration process starting with the testing phase. When testing for the presence of moisture in carpet, we use a sensor that beeps and lights up when its probes sense water. When we test moisture in wood or drywall, we use a meter that works by hammering metal probes into the material, which gives a percentage or parts per million reading that we use to determine what drying equipment to set up.  

If you ever need fast 24/7 service after a storm, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 immediately.

Our Experts Remove Water Damage From Daytona Beach Homes

Why SERVPRO Our Experts Remove Water Damage From Daytona Beach Homes When you discover a leaky pipe call SERVPRO as soon as possible, they will arrive on the scene and get to work.

Water Removal Technicians In Daytona Beach Talk About The Two Ways Moisture Gets Removed

When a pipe breaks inside your Daytona Beach apartment, water can enter your dwelling in two different forms. When conducting water removal, professional companies such as SERVPRO work on removing moisture from your building materials and contents as well as vapor in the air. Primary problems occur when objects inside your unit get saturated or slightly damp. Secondary issues take place when elevated relative humidity levels cause other issues with your possessions and structural components. Water removal usually involves quickly removing moisture from substances in your home and reducing high humidity levels. 

Any time excessive moisture enters your apartment building, it is wise to call in our SERVPRO team so that we can help prevent issues like mold growth in the future. Prompt water removal in Daytona Beach needs to be conducted as soon as possible so that secondary problems like drywall issues due to moisture and fungal development get avoided. We always provide fast 24/7 service so that we reduce the chances of excessive water vapor ruining your building materials and contents. We know that arriving at your home right after you call us is essential to preventing mold growth. We answer our phones at all times of the day, and our technicians are located nearby so that we can arrive at your apartment and begin work immediately. 

Our highly trained team at SERVPRO is IICRC certified and has experience with mitigating moisture-related issues whether they are big or small. We know that the first step to removing moisture is the extraction phase. We realize that it is much more efficient to vacuum up the water when it is in the liquid form then to remove it when it is inside your building materials and present in the air. 

Once all of the liquid H20 gets removed, we begin the rapid structural drying process. During this step, we push the air inside your home around and use dehumidifiers to remove water vapor from your indoor atmosphere. If you ever need moisture removed from your apartment unit, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 24/7.

Mold Remediation Learn How To Prevent Mold Growth In Your Port Orange Home Mold growth can be prevented call SERVPRO today for more information.

Inadequate Ventilation Can Cause Mold Growth in Port Orange Homes

Anyone who lives in Port Orange can tell you about the humid environment here for the better part of the year. While many homes and commercial properties combat these effects with conditioned air in the properties, the moisture still can find a way to affect your home without the right precautions. Ventilation to remove steam and hot air from your house is critical in areas like your kitchen, bathroom, and other areas where condensation or water damages could occur.

As troublesome as mold damage could be for your Port Orange home, many residents do not understand how the situation can often get prevented with the right approach. Protecting your investment in your home often requires routine inspections of the property to ensure that potentially problematic areas are not remaining damp and inviting to mold spores that naturally exist in the air that we breathe. Once these spores settle in moist conditions to an organic material, they can form colonies and begin using the material as a food source to grow and spread.

Our SERVPRO technicians have seen all manner of mold growth occur in area homes from localized colonization in the early stages where much of the material could get salvaged and restored to widespread growth spread throughout many areas of a home that required controlled demolition techniques to overcome. Once mold gets discovered on your property, you need to seek professional assistance to remove it before the situation gets out of control.

From the moment that our SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians arrive at your house, we can set up containment equipment and barriers to keep mold spores from seating in new areas of the property. Your air circulation appliances also get turned off at this point to prevent the movement of spores through the ducts. We can use removal tactics like sanding, soda blasting, and antimicrobial solutions to penetrate affected materials our technicians believe can get saved. Any element too badly affected gets removed and later replaced once remediation completes.

Mold damage can affect your home in many ways, and our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange remediators are ready for whatever situation they might encounter. Give us a call anytime at (386) 788-0358.

Revealed: Daytona Beach Home Flood Damage Restoration Involves Many Steps

12/6/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Revealed: Daytona Beach Home Flood Damage Restoration Involves Many Steps Flood damage restoration includes both the contents and structure of your home. Should your home have flooding, contact SERVPRO right away.

Caring for Flooring and Contents After Minor Flood Damage in Daytona Beach

When you go out on the water to surf, sail, fish, or swim, you know that certain precautions help save your valuable electronics from the water. When your neighborhood near Daytona Beach gets too much rain, you might find that many of your belongings also got wet.

If your residence's landscaping has changed recently, flood damage in Daytona Beach can happen unexpectedly from just a small amount of rain. When water flow patterns change, they can force water from higher areas to run right into your home. Other areas might also suffer, even if your residence remains untouched. Guesthouses, pool areas, and garages can also find themselves with wet, soaked floors.

Flooring can retain a lot more moisture than what you might realize. Held in the actual fibers of the carpet or the swollen particles of laminate flooring, water also ends up underneath. Concrete can hold moisture, although not in as high a volume as held in the wood underlay. However, wood permits faster evaporation than concrete does because of its less-dense nature and the spacing between boards. As several of our employees work on drying out your floors, others work on drying out saturated contents and cleaning up personal belongings.

Many of your furniture items might need to air out in the sun for a few days, if weather permits, to remove any musty odors from the water. While flooding from overflows that originated on your property most likely does not contain the same hazards that other, larger flooding incidents might introduce, earthy smells can still become bothersome.

Getting these smells out sooner than later helps keep them from becoming more established and pervasive. When these odors do persist, we can use a hydroxyl gas chamber to saturate them with odor-eliminating gas. This gas is highly effective and so safe that many packing plants and other industries use it during daily operations to make things more pleasant for their workers.

Cleaning up your family's personal belongings with special cleaning agents and lint-grabbing towels removes both silt and germs. The same hydroxyl gas used on furniture can also make stuffed toys, clothing, and other items smell like you remember. Because hydroxyl gas is safe to use on damp items, it means we do not have to wait for items to dry for the deodorization step to take place, decreasing the amount of time required for mitigation of your property's flood damage.

SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange also provides mitigation and other services to Ponce Inlet, Harbor Oaks, and Allandale. Call our 24-hour service line at (386) 788-0358, any hour of the day or night, year-round, for professional services when flood damage tries to take over your home.
