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.”
