Fire Damage Risk Greatest for Daytona Homes During the Holiday Season

SERVPRO Says Holiday Fire Damage in Daytona Is Common--Be Careful

Smoke Smells in Daytona Are Not Wanted--Call SERVPRO

During the holiday months of November and December, homes in Daytona experience an increased risk of fire damage. Many homeowners use decorations during this time to beautify their homes. Electric lights, candles, and other items come together to create stunning displays.

When these items in a Daytona home malfunction, fire damage can result. A fire might remain isolated in one area, but the smoke can spread widely throughout your home. As it floats through your home, it adheres to anything it touches. On absorbent materials, the particles in the soot begin to penetrate.

SERVPRO technicians know that even surfaces that look clean on the outside can hide soot on the inside. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) works with our Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) to ensure that we eliminate fire damage at every level and stage affecting your home. Smelling ongoing smoke odors can seriously undermine having a home with no visible traces of the fire. Both aspects require mitigation and skilled professionals who have the experience to work with you until you become satisfied with the results.

At SERVPRO, we take it very seriously when a home suffers fire damage. We know that hidden problems often exist, and know that these can surface later when you least expect them. We can help eliminate these before they become problematic for your family. One such problem is that with increased humidity and warmth, such as in the summer, areas that seemed free of odors once again begin to produce odors after a mid-winter fire. This is because the remaining particles become more active in heat and elevated humidity. We can help ensure that these areas receive additional care, so they revert to a non-odorous state again.

SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange wants to help the area's families enjoy their homes year-round. Because of this, our number, (386) 788-0358, is always answered, day or night, every day of the year. Emergencies never follow a schedule and can happen at any time. Call us for all your smoke and fire damage needs, and we can begin mitigation quickly, so your home looks “Like it never even happened.”
