The amount of water damage caused to a property depends on how much water pours into it.

Flood Damage

Spring is on its way and with the change of the season comes an increased amount of rainfall. When the rain comes down, it is possible that it damages your Daytona townhome. Rainstorms can cause damage to property by either flooding the area or putting holes in the structure.

Sometimes wind coming from a storm blows rocks and other objects into your home creating a hole in your townhouse. If your home gets a hole put into it during a storm, it is smart to call SERVPRO's flood damage specialists in Daytona. If a rock breaks a window, rainwater quickly makes its way into your home.

The amount of water damage caused to a property depends on how much water pours into it. The first step SERVPRO's restoration team completes is the extraction process. After all of the standing water in the room is vacuumed up, building materials either get removed or saved by the drying process. The size and severity of the damaged area will determine whether building materials get dried out or removed.

Once the water damage problem is mitigated, the last step is the final cleaning process. It is crucial for us to finish a job making the area as clean as possible when we are done. When cleaning a building, there are three levels that determine how clean the area is.

The three levels of clean that exist are sterile, disinfected and sanitary. If cleaning gets completed with proper equipment and techniques, then sanitary is the first level of cleanliness an area reaches. If something is sanitary, then soils and contaminants are removed to the point where general health is protected.

The disinfected level gets reached when 99% of all the soils and contaminants get removed or made safe for general human health. In most flood damage scenarios our crew makes sure the damaged room gets disinfected so that dangerous viruses and bacteria cannot grow. The sterile level gets reached when 100% of things dangerous to humans get removed. Sterilization only gets done in specific areas such as hospital rooms.

How clean the damaged room is when the job gets done makes all of the difference between a great job and a poor job. To get the best final results with your water damage problems, it is best to call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 for 24/7 assistance.
