Daytona's Flood Damage Experts Give Structural Drying Information
Water Extraction and Moisture Removal Are Key Components of Flood Mitigation in Daytona
It does not happen very often, but it is a possibility that someday Daytona Beach can experience flooding conditions. If a severe tropical storm or hurricane blows into town, flooding of the area often occurs.
Severe thunderstorms, tropical depressions, and hurricanes all potentially cause water damage to take place on your property. SERVPRO's flood damage technicians in Daytona have much experience in structural drying and mitigating problems with moisture. Whether the problem with flooding is large or small, it is vital to remove any moisture inside your house as quickly as possible.
Whenever our SERVPRO restoration crew arrives at an emergency damage situation, we first secure the area and fix the problem at its source. We find where the water is entering the structure and take measures to keep the moisture out. Once rainwater stops entering the building, we can then begin extracting all of the moisture that entered your home as we can.
Flood insurance is a stress reducer as is the arrival of the SERVPRO Green Fleet. If the water coming in from the outside creates standing water that is more than two inches in depth, then we use submersible pumps to suck it up and export it into a sewer drain. After all of the deep, standing water inside your home is vacuumed up; we use specialized tools to extract water from building materials and contents. Our team has various extraction tools that get used on different materials such as carpet and upholstery. We have a wand for every situation.
Once our crew is satisfied that they have pulled out all of the water from your contents and materials that they can, we begin drying up the remaining moisture. When drying contents and materials, we use a combination of industrial fans or air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the evaporation process. The heavy duty industrial fans create an air flow that pushes evaporated water coming off of the surfaces of contents and building materials to the center of the room where the dehumidifier pulls the water out of the air and releases it in liquid form.
Depending on the specific situation, we arrange the equipment the best way possible to drop moisture levels to preloss conditions. If you are ever in a tight spot and need help from the professionals after a storm, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 any time.
