SERVPRO Arrives at Your South Daytona Business Ready to Remove Tough Smoke Odors with Expert Fire Damage Restoration Service

Within any commercial space, even the smallest fire leaves behind foul odors and damage that may keep you from regular operations. Knowing that you need prompt action to get your business back up and running, calling in the help of trained restoration technicians to your South Daytona business is the best move. At SERVPRO, we have IICRC-certified technicians and the advanced technology necessary to get the job done fast.

How Does Smoke Odor Removal Work?

When called for fire damage restoration in South Daytona, we arrive at your place of business to begin the initial assessment. Once the plan of action is in place, we remove all charred building materials and any interior contents deemed unsalvageable. Any water left from extinguishing the flames gets extracted, and we start to focus on soot and smoke residue.

•    Dry sponges allow us to pick up powdery soot
•    Wet sponges and industrial-grade cleaning solutions help remove sticky, stubborn smoke residue
•    All areas are tested before cleaning, which helps to ensure the best method gets used for the type of residue present

For tough smoke odors, we often use thermal fogging technology. With this process, our thermal fogging equipment puts out a chemical fog with odor-neutralizing power that reaches particles deep down in crevices and cracks. We also use air scrubbers to help remove odorous elements and particles from the air.

Whatever building materials are deemed unsalvageable, our team removes them, and everything is replaced with brand-new materials to bring your business back to preloss condition.

Fire damage restoration is something that we specialize in at SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange. You can call us 24/7 to have a team deployed to your location in as little as four hours. We can be reached at (386) 788-0358.

What kind of fire restoration services do I need for business premises?

5/22/2020 (Permalink)

A commercial building with smoke coming out the windows. Let SERVPRO restore your South Daytona fire damage.

Commercial Fire Restoration services are available in South Daytona for businesses in need of a quick turnaround. 

How does fire restoration in larger premises differ from residential fire restoration?

Restoring a commercial property requires greater resources as well as equipment to ensure that temporary closures from fire damage in South Daytona are kept to a minimum. Larger premises like warehouses are challenging for restorers because of lower quality of insulation and a more considerable amount of space to work with. Restoring indoor air quality in a vast space requires industrial standard equipment.

Do I need to vacate the property entirely during fire restoration in South Daytona?

SERVPRO works closely with property managers during commercial restoration to ensure that we can find a working solution for your property and your business. In some situations, we may be able to work around the business while still producing an efficient service. Our crew chiefs can post signage and close off certain areas of the warehouse to prevent things like foot traffic or entrance to an affected area from occurring. Fumigation can often be done out of business hours to avoid unnecessary inconvenience. 

What flexibility is available for arranging and procuring restoration in a business property?

  • Round the clock operators are here to take your call in a business emergency
  • We guarantee to arrive at your property within four hours of notification of loss
  • Out-of-hours callout available for commercial businesses 

What type of equipment do I need to restore indoor air quality after a fire?

In large open spaces, it can take longer for air filtration devices to be effective simply because they need to pass more cubic feet of air. Technicians can daisy chain AFDs to provide the necessary power required to clean the air efficiently in a large warehouse space. Direct expansion units (DEU) are also available to SERVPRO crew chiefs should they need to heat, dehumidify or cool a large space after wet cleaning. 

Your business needs efficient commercial restoration to get back to normal, contact SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358.

Commercial Mold Damage Restoration In Port Orange Requires Controlling Microbial Growth

Any building that has a large number of water pipes running through it, such as your cafe in Port Orange, is susceptible to having a leak or spill at some point in time. If the leak goes unnoticed for more than a couple of days because it is a slow, hidden one, your restaurant could suffer from commercial mold damage. Once a fungus develops, it can cause health effects and possibly spread to other places.

Our SERVPRO team knows that when running a restaurant, maintaining a sanitary environment for your customers is vital. Preventing your commercial mold damage problem in Port Orange from becoming worse is our first initiative. We know that a big part of restoration procedures can be to avoid future issues and to reduce problems created by the mitigation work processes. Our overall goal is to always return your business to the way it was before the slow water leak occurred and make it seem, “Like it never even happened.”

One way to control fungal growth is to apply professional products. However, chemicals should not be used by themselves for effective remediation. Our SERVPRO technicians know that one of the main steps to fungal remediation efforts is to dry out the affected area. Fungi need moisture to develop and grow, thus reducing the moisture levels of any organic materials in the affected areas of your restaurant can stunt its formation.

Another way to prevent microbial growth without the use of chemical agents is to remove any contaminated materials. For example, if drywall inside your dining room has visible mold growth, then our SERVPRO crew can cut out and remove the contaminated section of your walls. Removing materials that got contaminated can prevent future growth by eliminating the source of the spores that are used for fungal reproduction.

However, professional products can be used in addition to other mitigation procedures. Some agents can be useful to kill fungi and help eliminate the seed-like spores created.

If a fungus ever forms inside your cafe, it could make your eatery unsanitary. For professional assistance when dealing with mold, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 24/7.

Call Us After Your Commercial Property In South Daytona Is Damaged By A Hurricane

9/17/2019 (Permalink)

Black mold on the wall of a home Warm temperatures combined with the excessive moisture indoors create the perfect environment for mold spores to grow.

Picking Up And Rebuilding After South Daytona Commercial Hurricane Damage

More hurricanes hit Florida than any other state. The sheer loss of property due to commercial hurricane damage these storms leave behind is tragic, and the aftermath often takes weeks to begin to see signs of normalcy in day-to-day activities.

As locals, SERVPRO has experience working in the aftereffects of hurricane damage for both residential and commercial hurricane damage in South Daytona. Although each job site possesses unique challenges, there are several common denominators caused by hurricanes such as Irma and Michael, which rivaled 1992s Hurricane Andrew in intensity.

Lack of Electricity
SERVPRO technicians bring their own generators to job sites to clean up storm damage, as it can be days or weeks until the restoration of electrical service to the affected area. Bringing their own power-supplies allows the cleanup of your property to begin as fast as possible.

Flood Damage
This is a widespread issue during storm damage cleanup. After most flooding, the water tends to recede quickly. Following a storm surge from a hurricane, there is nowhere for the water to go and it requires removal and disposal through other measures to get the water out of the property. Plus the water has a host of contaminants and often sewage. The technicians have the training and Biohazard certification in the safe handling of biohazardous-level waste to get it out of the commercial property effectively.

Handling Mold
The warm temperatures of Florida, combined with the excessive moisture indoors after hurricane damage creates the perfect environment for mold spores to germinate. Once that happens, they spread quickly. SERVPRO technicians hold certifications for mold remediation #MRSR515 and know how to halt the growth of mold colonies and prevent their return after the completion of mitigation efforts.

Demolition, Drying, and Disinfection
Because sheetrock wicks water quickly and proceeds to buckle and warp, it requires removal through clean, controlled demolition. Flooring sometimes requires it too so the subflooring can dry thoroughly. This action also allows technicians to direct great amounts of airflow into hard-to-reach areas during drying. Then they disinfect the property to bring it to sanitary standards for reconstruction.

SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange is ready to assist local property owners with commercial hurricane damage. Contact us at (386) 788-0358 as soon as possible, and our team of certified professionals will restore your property to its preloss condition. “Like it never even happened.”

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

6/24/2019 (Permalink)

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.

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.

Water damage in Your Daytona Manufacturing Plant

11/5/2018 (Permalink)

Water in your manufacturing plant can be disastrous. Call SERVPRO for expert removal and restoration so you can get your business up and running.

Commercial Water Damage Technicians In Daytona Discuss Problems With Elevated Humidity Levels

If a water leak ever takes place at your Daytona manufacturing plant, prompt mitigation is necessary to reduce the severity of the problems. The commercial water damage that is created directly by water contact is considered a primary issue. Once water stays inside a structure, the humidity levels increase inside. Moisture that is present in the air can then cause problems with building materials that did not initially get wet. Any commercial water damage that results from vapor in the air is considered to be a secondary problem.  

Any time our SERVPRO restoration team responds to an emergency call, we take steps to reduce the number of secondary issues that occur. If mitigation happens quickly during your commercial water damage project in Daytona, secondary problems may not take place. The first step to the process is to extract as much water from materials like carpet and upholstery as possible. The quicker standing water and moisture present within porous materials get removed, the less the humidity inside the building rises.  

After we complete the extraction phase, we begin the rapid structural drying process. When water leaks inside your manufacturing plant, many of the building materials such as the drywall and possibly ceiling tiles can retain moisture. The goal during the rapid structural drying stage is to create an environment that speeds up the natural evaporation process.  

In some areas, the humidity outside is low, and the air from the outdoors can be used to speed up the drying process. However, in most cases, our SERVPRO technicians choose to utilize a closed drying system that seals the affected area off from the outside environment. This way we can better control the atmosphere in the affected area and speed up the natural evaporation process.  

To do this, we set up a combination of air movers and dehumidification systems. The air movers create circulation that pushes wet air away from damp surfaces. The dehumidifiers then remove moisture from the air, thus lowering the relative humidity level. If you ever have a pipe break inside your manufacturing business, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 any time of the day.

Become Familiar With Your Remediation Options When Facing Commercial Water Damage in Daytona

Businesses affected by water damage lose productivity quickly. Contact SERVPRO right away to determine the cause and remediate your damage.

Commercial Water Removal for Daytona Businesses

Daytona area businesses deal with flooding from a variety of sources. Although storm flooding gets the majority of the attention, most water damage comes from smaller sources such as broken appliances, split lines or pipes, and blocked or malfunctioning drains.
 
For many businesses, commercial water removal in Daytona has to happen quickly. For a business that specializes in new or upgrading kitchens and bathrooms, SERVPRO knows there is an issue not just with standing water, but with high humidity that affects structural property and some inventory items.
 
Regardless of what the business may be, the first action taken has to be making it safe to walk and work in the facility. That means our technicians have to remove the water from off the floor and out of the carpets. For high levels of standing water, they use commercial grade pumps that can remove the water from businesses in a day or two, depending on the total area and the amount of water.
 
For water just covering the surface, they use extraction wands. Technicians can adjust these smaller devices to remove water quickly but not damage the surface of wood floors or damage carpet fibers. The wands we use also contain a heating element, so SERVPRO team members can begin drying the carpets as they draw out the water.
 
With the water gone, team members quickly move in dehumidifiers to draw moisture from the air and surrounding property and inventory. Depending on the item, many materials quickly absorb water. Lowering the humidity reduces the risk to inventory items like wallpaper and helps to dry out drywall panels. Each dehumidifier can remove up to 25 gallons of water every 24 hours, depending on the humidity level of the surrounding air.
 
Technicians also dry material and inventory by setting up air movers and fans. They direct warm, dry air from the air movers to force moisture out of the property. The fans draw out the cooler, damp air and force it outside.
 
At SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange, we have two goals. We want to help each business preserve its inventory and reopen doors to customers as quickly as possible. If you need these services, call us today at (386) 788-0358 to get started.

Mitigation Work For Water Damage In Your Daytona Hotel

8/7/2018 (Permalink)

Does your Daytona hotel have a plan in place should a water emergency occur?

Water Damage In Your Hotel

Does your Daytona hotel have a plan in place should a water emergency occur? Knowing how you would mitigate the damages that your building sustains and ultimately restore the concerns is critical to keeping the costs of the project to a minimum and the reputation of your business high. Professional services like ours can help you through the entire restoration, keeping in mind the time constraints and guests you might have staying on the property.

Your Daytona hotel was likely built in part to withstand the sometimes severe weather that can roll in from the Atlantic but is not as impenetrable when it comes to water damage threatening the interior construction. This situation is where our SERVPRO technicians can help you to mitigate your losses and stop the spread of this damage to joining rooms or areas of the hotel by responding quickly to your call.

Our team arrives promptly to begin the necessary work to stop the damages from getting any worse. This mitigation process saves you money and keeps the time necessary for the restoration project to complete to a minimum as well. Finding the source of the damage and assuring that this area gets repaired is one of the first steps in the overall restoration work that we do.

Extraction and drying are also critical components to the restoration process, and these portions are checked for quality assurances against moisture baselines to ensure that the drying efforts in every area of the hotel have met or exceeded our high standards. We work to restore materials before we deem them necessary for removal. This approach is part of an ongoing commitment to keep the work cost-effective for our customers and as minimalistic as possible regarding our presence in your facility throughout the cleanup and drying efforts.

Mitigation is one of the most critical components to reducing the length of time that restoration occurs and the amount of work that ultimately has to happen. This fact should encourage any business owner to have a standing plan in place of emergencies to reach out to the highly trained and certified professionals at SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange. Our emergency team is available anytime at (386) 788-0358.

Commercial Water Removal Experts In Daytona Discuss Moisture Issues In Offices

When Your Business Is Underwater in Daytona, Call SERVPRO for Water Removal and Restoration

Business Centers Often Rely on SERVPRO to Extract Water and Mitigate Damages in the Daytona Area

If water happens to leak into your Daytona office, many problems can take place if not dealt with immediately. The longer moisture stays inside a structure, the more likely materials can saturate and get ruined. When organic materials stay wet for longer than 48 hours, microbial growth can occur.
 
For avoiding problems with mold growth, it is essential to drop moisture levels of the building materials as quickly as possible. When working on commercial water removal in Daytona, extraction and rapid drying are two vital steps in restoration. Extraction gets completed using specialized vacuum equipment to suck up moisture. Rapid drying then takes place with advanced air moving and dehumidification systems.
 
Before any work begins, our SERVPRO restoration team inspects the affected area for safety hazards. Water leaks can cause drywall to fall or electrical fixtures to short out which can both create safety issues. If there are any hazards inside your office, we fix them if possible or block off the dangerous regions so that the building is safe for all occupants.
 
The next step is the planning process. During the planning stage, we determine what got damage and how our SERVPRO technicians can go about mitigating the issues. We know that reducing the loss of revenue to your company is essential and we plan our work procedures in ways that keep your business operating. We sometimes can schedule work during business after-hours or remove the water one section at a time, so your business can stay functioning as usual throughout the entire restoration process.
 
Once we determine the best method to remove the moisture inside your office in a short amount of time, we implement the suitable equipment for each particular situation. If there is an excessive amount of standing water, a sump pump gets used first to suck up the water and put it into a sewer drain. Next, heavy duty extraction equipment can get utilized to remove moisture from carpets and upholstery.
 
After as much water as possible gets vacuumed up, drying equipment then gets placed in the affected region. Air movers push air and create a counterclockwise circulation to speed up the evaporation of wet materials. Dehumidifiers are also set up so that they pull moisture out of the air and reduce the room's humidity.
 
In some cases, specialized drying equipment can be used to dry out specific things like drywall and hardwood floors. Any time you notice a water leak inside your office, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 seven days a week.

Fighting Water Damage In Your Daytona Hotel

4/25/2018 (Permalink)

A water emergency can put a damper on your customers having a great time at your Daytona hotel.

Fighting Water Damage

A water emergency can put a damper on your customers having a great time at your Daytona hotel. These situations tend to not only affect the place that it occurs in but spreads to neighboring rooms and floors to maximize the damage. Fortunately, if this does happen, you are not alone in cleaning up the mess and getting back to normal.

The reason that your Daytona hotel cannot be held down by water damage is the high volume of unique traffic that it sees year round. Regardless of the time of year, the favorable weather conditions always draw tourists and travelers down through this coastal area. When water damage threatens one of the rooms, and subsequently several others, you are losing revenue while you wait for repairs to complete.

The drawn-out waiting period is part of the reason why professional restoration services are a wise choice for your business.

Commercial Water Removal Technicians In Daytona

If a pipe breaks inside your Daytona gift shop, many items inside possibly get damaged by excessive moisture.

Commercial Water Removal

If a pipe breaks inside your Daytona gift shop, many items inside possibly get damaged by excessive moisture. Water many times ruins the structural integrity of your building materials or contents causing them to require removal and replacement. If moisture stays inside organic materials for too long, mold possibly grows with the ideal temperature.

Water damage inside your shop possibly gets in the way of business operations and causes you a loss in revenue. SERVPRO's commercial water removal experts in Daytona, have experience in mitigating losses on commercial properties. We know the best methods to mitigate property issues in ways that keep your business functioning.

The first thing we do in any emergency damage situation is to make sure the work area is safe for both your gift shop employees and customers. Racks displaying your products get moved or placed on foam blocks so that there are safe walkways for your customers. Any potentials hazards get repaired, or danger signs get placed in the area.

Once the area is safe to begin work, SERVPRO's restoration technicians start the extraction process. First, any standing water inside your store gets vacuumed up. Then, we used our specialized extraction system to pull moisture out of your shop's carpet and any upholstery present.

After all of the water gets extracted from the area, we test your gift shop for temperature, humidity, and moisture levels. After we find the wettest areas, we determine a plan of action for structural drying. Our plan is always to drop moisture levels to original conditions using equipment to create the correct airflow and temperature conducive to drying.

We create the ideal drying environment with the use of air movers and dehumidifiers. Air movers get positioned so that they circulate air in a clockwise motion and speed up evaporation by replacing moist air with warm, dry air. Dehumidifiers suck in air and remove the moisture from it, exhausting hot, dry air.

In some situations, we use specialty drying equipment to remove moisture from wall cavities, cabinets, and hardwood floors. For professional help with removing water from your gift shop, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 for 24-hour assistance.

Understanding the Factors That Affect Water Removal from Your Daytona Commercial Property

2/1/2018 (Permalink)

The amount of water in your space will determine the drying time, standing water is more easily removed than residual moisture.

Allow the Professionals at SERVPRO to Properly Restore Your Commercial Space after Water Damage

Water damage is never good for your business. Water damage can cripple any business whether it is a restaurant, a clothing store or any other enterprise. It is crucial to remove the water as soon as possible to get your business up and running.

The time and money required to efficiently remove water as well as residual moisture from your Daytona store depend on several factors. SERVPRO professionals can use these factors to create conditions for fast and efficient water removal.

Temperature

The temperature of the environment is one of the most critical factors that can affect the rate of drying. The rate of drying is highest when the temperature of the affected areas is kept between 70 to 80 degrees. If the temperatures are kept above 85 degrees, there is a chance of secondary damage as the air may contain too much moisture. Our technicians can closely monitor the temperature and use portable heaters to heat your establishment to speed up the drying process.

Amount of Water to be Removed

Drying times depend on the amount and type of moisture present. Standing water is easier to remove compared to the residual moisture. SERVPRO professionals use extractors to remove water and dehumidifiers to remove residual moisture.

Humidity

Relative humidity also affects the rate of drying. If the Relative Humidity (RH) is above 60%, the drying rates slow down significantly. Maintaining a low RH is crucial for the elimination of residual moisture. Our technicians can use dehumidifying equipment, that can remove moisture from the air, to create conditions of low RH to facilitate rapid drying.

Air Movement

Replacing the damp, wet air with drier air can significantly improve the rate of drying. Air movers are equipment that performs precisely this function. These are high capacity fans, that can replace the moist air with a drier air that speeds up the process of drying.

Our IICRC certified technicians can use a knowledge of all these factors to create conditions that ensure rapid and efficient drying of your commercial property.

Don't Lose Money From Water Damage To Your Daytona Beach Hotel

12/15/2017 (Permalink)

If you have air conditioners in your hotel that go on the fritz causing water damages, give SERVPRO a call.

Water Damage To Your Hotel

Daytona Beach has its critical peak seasons, as any other tourist destination in the country does. Whether it is bike week, racing or beach season, your area hotel has to be running at its optimal levels. The heat through these critical times of the year is unbearable at times, so guests rely heavily on the provided air conditioning units in the room that you offer them. When these units fail, they often unload all of the trapped water inside of the unit, which can cause a significant amount damage if not dealt with quickly.

While this might instantaneously make this particular room unrentable to guests, for the time being, that is not even the worst of the potential problems that could result from the incident. With adjoining rooms, or areas below the water damage to your Daytona Beach hotel room, you have a high possibility of the damage spreading and affecting even more guests.

To mitigate your loss of profits and to keep adjoining rooms from being damaged as well, you are going to need to act quickly. Our SERVPRO team is available any time of the day or night to help resolve your problem. With every night that you are unable to occupy a damaged room, you are losing money, and our team can appreciate the severity of the situation and work quickly to restore the area so that it can be reopened.

With air conditioning malfunctions like this, you have one single volume of water that unloads onto the floor of the room, and that is it. Restoring this damage involves our SERVPRO team using wet vacs to pull the water from the carpeting or flooring and using air movers to dry out the damage thoroughly. Assessment of the damage is the next step, ensuring that more restoration efforts are not needed to make the room ready for guests again.

Whether it is the peak season or not, it never advisable to sit on a problem like this for very long. If you have air conditioners in your hotel that go on the fritz causing water damages, give SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange a call. We can be reached anytime at (386) 788-0358.

SERVPRO - Commercial Water Removal in Daytona Beach Hotels

10/27/2017 (Permalink)

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. If you need our services, call us at (386) 788-0358. We are here for you.
