Why SERVPRO? How Badly Can Mold Damage My Home?

An active infestation of mold spores can penetrate the wood, drywall, and even the carpets of your home in South Daytona. Expert mold removal by SERVPRO requires stopping active mold growth, removing most spores, and reducing the risk of future infestations.

Can’t SERVPRO Eliminate Mold in My Home?

Not completely. Mold spores are nearly as common as dust. Usually, they are dormant, which means they are not growing or a threat. In a South Daytona property mold spores can start germinating with only a few drops of water, developing further, then extending hyphae to search for more water and a source of food, which almost every type of building material in the structure.

Our technicians begin restoration by determining the extent of the growth. That includes finding any nearby water and removing it with cloths and sponges, using extraction wands for larger pools and puddles, halting growth.

Next, they remove the visible mold colonies from affected surfaces with dry or damp sponges. If the mold layers are very thick, technicians use hand-scrapers and an antimicrobial cleaner to loosen them. If the hyphae had time to penetrate the surface of wall framing, for example, technicians can use hand-sanders to scrape off the top layers to get to the mold. For hyphae deeper into the wood, we have an additional option of a soda-blasting machine to remove them.

After removal, technicians spray an antimicrobial agent over the affected surfaces to reduce the risk of returning mold. Once it dries, they check for water and active mold.

Are There Other Risks About Mold

In some people, mold can cause health effects. These are rare occurrences, and SERVPRO technicians concentrate strictly on the physical damage.

To get started with your home here or in Daytona Beach, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 for your mold restoration needs. We are here for you and your family.

When Flooding in Caused by Plumbing Failures in Port Orange

1/28/2020 (Permalink)

Burst pipe.  Water spewing out Plumbing failures can quickly cause a lot of water damage. We have the equipment and training for fast restoration.

Why Port Orange Residents trust SERVPRO for Prompt Flood Damage Restoration

Flooding is much more common during the winter months when rainfall prominent, and temperatures are low. During the holiday season, water inside pipes can freeze. When water freezes, it can cause pressure spots or expand during thawing and burst the pipe. This phenomenon is especially common for homeowners when they are away from the property for several days at a time. To mitigate potential pipe issues, you can shut off the water supply or put water heating on a timer for the length of time you are away from the property.

Sometimes accidents do happen, which is why there are professional services for flood damage here in Port Orange. A broken pipe can spew out hundreds of gallons of water in the property in a matter of hours. Fortunately, the water entering the home comes from a clean water supply, which can make the recovery process smoother as there are no biohazardous substances present for SERVPRO technicians to remove. You should be aware that a body of water contains microbes and is therefore likely to degrade without immediate intervention.

Making sure you have the correct insurance cover over the winter period is a valuable task to complete ahead of time. Water emergencies can strike at any time, but with insurance and trusted restoration service, the losses you sustain are controllable. SERVPRO works with your insurance adjuster throughout the facility to restore line with your coverage and limit damages as much as possible. It is one of the reasons each of our technicians operate with a restore over replace mentality.

Flood recovery can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks or months. During this period, you should try to avoid areas where flood restoration is ongoing. We understand how inconvenient floods can be, and SERVPRO works hard to keep inconvenience to a minimum. Generally, our efforts are concise and focused, which can speed up the recovery process. We can also place warning signs and physical barriers in the affected area and keep notifying you of the ongoing process to ensure you stay in the loop throughout.

Your plumbing system is vulnerable during the winter months. In an emergency, contact SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358.

Stormy Weather in South Daytona and SERVPRO Services Mean Mitigation!

Storm-blown palm trees along the beach front South Daytona Properties Benefit from SERVPRO's Fast Response to Mitigate Storm and Flooding Damages

SERVPRO is a Crucial Step in Your Storm Season Planning in South Daytona

The past few years have been a living lesson for residents of South Daytona. As idyllic as our city is, we are vulnerable to the impact of hurricanes and intense storms for a significant portion of the year.  Local authorities encourage us to prepare and are safe by storing supplies, non-perishables, and other essentials, but they say little about the restoration process following a flood.  When numerous homes suffer the devastation following a weather event, knowing whom to call and promptly reaching out can make all the difference between restoration and total replacement of your home.

Luckily, SERVPRO is at your disposal when your South Daytona home suffers flood damage.  Our technicians understand the ebbs and flows of living in the region while having access to national resources to underscore our expertise.  We are accessible as soon as it is safe to mobilize and are ready to help you mitigate the loss and disruption in your life.  All you need to do is call.

Acting quickly and effectively is key to our approach.  Our training and experience already tell us that in times of flooding, containment is critical to prevent the growth of bacteria carried in the floodwaters.  As a result, we remove any porous surfaces such as carpets and carpet pads as soon as we can, so contaminants do not spread further into your home.  Our SERVPRO crew handles these tasks carefully by wearing personal protective equipment, including gloves, respirators, and specialized Tyvek suits.

Following the removal of any necessary items, we proceed to disinfect structural elements that need it.  By relying on SERVPRO, you can rest assured that the sprays and solutions we use are within environmental guidelines, and we match each cleaning method to the composition of the surface. Throughout this process, we are in constant communication with you and any other parties involved.  Coordination may include insurance adjusters, general contractors, and other vendors. Together, we develop a plan suitable to your needs.

Prepare your home for the rainy season, but always remember to have a restoration plan in place. Ask us about our ERP Emergency READY Profile Plan.

Reliable Remediation Tactics in Daytona Beach Homes 

Remediation is a science of reducing, and ultimately mitigating, mold colonization in Daytona Beach homes and businesses. Many restoration groups might encourage you to believe they can totally remove mold from your house, but this is a misleading statement that often confuses potential customers. We are remediation specialists, trained through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to remove colonies and to restore the damage that mold can do to structures. 

While we do not have the technology nor the need to remove  all naturally occurring mold spores for your household, we do have many sophisticated techniques and tactics to combat mold damage to Daytona Beach residences. From sanding and media blasting to strategically placed air scrubbers outfitted with HEPA filtration systems to capture most airborne spores and particulates, we have competent and tested strategies to get your home back to preloss condition quickly. 

Soda blasting has become one of our SERVPRO team’s most efficient tactics for removing mold colonies without damaging or marring the hosting material. With how deep the hyphae of the organism can embed within the material, it is crucial to have an approach that can protect the substrate while effectively eliminating the present colony. Successful soda blasting reduces the need for controlled demolition and build back. 

This abrasive cleaning approach, though milder than most of the other cleaning media in this category, involves blasting sodium bicarbonate particles against a surface with a machine run from an air compressor. Because it is milder than sanding – which used to be our traditional approach – we have a solution that can better protect surfaces, walls, wood framing, and other structural elements. Best of all, baking soda blasting can eliminate most mold spores and colonies while utilizing this medium to simultaneously kill odors, which streamlines the entire remediation process for our customers. 

Soda blasting has become one of the most common approaches to protect materials and contents in-house that can get restored after mold exposure. Our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange team has equipment and expertise to make mold losses “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (386) 788-0358.

Quickly Addressing Ceiling Water Damage in a Daytona Beach Residence

Water damage in any home is frustrating for homeowners to deal with, and even more so when these leaks spring in ceilings above rooms without water fixtures. If your bedroom develops a ceiling leak, not only can it be difficult to dry on your own, but it can also be risky. Without the proper tools and techniques, a small leak can lead to the development of mold, mildew, microbes, and even structural issues.

If your Daytona Beach home has water damage, it is prudent to act fast. Certified SERVPRO technicians are ready to restore your home to its preloss condition so that you can rest easy without worrying about structural damage or microbes growing in your bedroom. SERVPRO is also proud to provide contracting services in the event of mold (Florida License MRSR515) and biohazard cleanup (64-64-1785570). This EPA-certified team also has extensive accreditation from a variety of organizations, including the Daytona Beach Chamber of Commerce, the Indoor Air Quality Association, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification; the Port Orange/South Daytona Chamber of Commerce, and the American Council for Accredited Certification.

Common Causes of Ceiling Leaks

Pipe leaks: Even a small crack can let gallons of water into your home each day until it is remedied.
Roof water damage: Loose or cracked asphalt shingles and stormy weather are enough to invite unwanted water into your home.
Clogged gutters: Blockages can change the direction of water drainage so that it flows into your home instead of away from it.
Waterproofing: Not using waterproof sealants for bathroom fixtures can damage ceilings below.
Appliance leaks: Any fixture that uses water, like a refrigerator or washing machine, can leak through floors and subfloors and onto ceilings underneath.

SERVPRO Can Save the Day

When SERVPRO comes to your home, technicians can drill holes into the ceiling to allow water to drain and create ventilation for the drying process. In cases where insulation is particularly saturated, fiberglass insulation is generally salvageable with careful drying. Specialized insulation vacuums can be used to collect materials for restoration easily. Baseboards are removed before drying to encourage ventilation and re-installed after drying goals have been met. If there are odors in your home from the leak, professionals can remove the sources. From there, EPA-registered disinfectants and industrial dehumidifiers can eradicate odor-causing particles.

SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach/Port Orange is Faster to Any Size Disaster. Whether you need disaster mitigation late at night, on weekends, or during holidays, you can get emergency cleanup service in mere hours by calling (386) 788-0358.

We do not cut corners when it comes to providing the restoration services South Daytona residents and business owners have come to expect. We strive every day to exceed the expectations of our customers, and that begins with evolving and improving our practices to suit the quickening pace of the industry without ever compromising the quality that we have built our reputation upon. We are not satisfied with a completed job until you are, and that is a philosophy that has not only helped us to get awarded by our parental company over the years but also helped to develop loyal relationships with homeowners and property management firms throughout the area.

Water
 
In an area prone to devastating storm systems and humid conditions that can quickly develop mold and microbial threats, it is surprising that water damage in South Daytona is still the leading callout that our professionals have. With stiff competition throughout the area, our professionals are continually working to improve both our efficiency in your home and our knowledge of modern recovery strategies, equipment, and products that can help to return your property to preloss condition swiftly.
 
With decades of experience in this division of our team alone, we can handle multiple tasks simultaneously to aid when several homes experience various water loss incidents at the same time. With the majority of our field technicians accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Water Restoration Technicians (WRT), we can ensure that no South Daytona Beach homeowner waits a moment longer than necessary for competent assistance.
 
With water loss incidents, every minute counts. We understand the immense time constraints, and that is why we invest in powerful extraction, drying, and cleaning tools and equipment. We also ensure that each of these projects, while handled in a timely fashion, get overseen by our Master Water Restorer to meet specific quality guidelines and keep our South Daytona Beach customers from paying excessive out of pocket expenses.

Fire
 
We understand that one of the first calls that you make after fire loss incidents occur in your South Daytona home is to your insurance provider. This adjuster or agent can help you to understand your coverage, and also begin the process of filing a damage claim. While you are getting these details squared away, however, you might also be wasting valuable time to mitigate losses and protect the contents of your house.
 
Along with calling your insurance provider, you can also reach out to our SERVPRO professionals, as we can work to document damage, begin debris removal, and start vital mitigation that reduces the spread and severity of lingering effects after fires get extinguished. With our established relationship with area insurance providers and major companies, we can work to expedite the claims process by providing needed information to approve the claim. Protecting your South Daytona Beach home begins with taking the initiative to get skilled IICRC-Certified restorers.
 
Much like many of our other common niches for restoration and recovery, our fire loss restoration gets supervised by our Master Fire & Smoke Restorer. This extensively trained professional can lend his expertise to every active job, ensuring their timely completion and lower costs. When fire damage affects South Daytona Beach homes, you can count on our professionals to arrive quickly to help.

Mold
 
Mold remediation is a vital service to our area, especially considering how many South Daytona properties are perpetually at risk. With higher humidity and moisture levels throughout our coastal community, homes, and businesses without adequate ventilation and humidity management devices can face the development of mold colonization and the potentially hazardous health effects that accompany it.
 
We understand the importance of honesty and integrity when you put your trust in our SERVPRO team to identify these risks and threats to your South Daytona residence. We utilize both sophisticated tools as well as environmental testing approaches to determine the likelihood of microbial growth when colonization is not easily distinguishable. If work is necessary, we can begin mitigation and remediation tactics immediately to reduce further spread or degradation.
 
One of the advantages of offering a comprehensive approach in restoration services is that we have a full-service division of general contractors that can help for severe mold damage in South Daytona Beach properties. Our licensed (MRSR515) team of professionals can help with material removal and controlled demolition when removing active colonization, but also plays a vital role in build back and reconstruction to make it “Like it never even happened.”
 
Storm
 
We are a team that understands how devastating tropical storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, and other severe weather events can be. Along the east coast, we have seen our fair share of destructive weather systems, and this puts hundreds – sometimes thousands – of South Daytona homes and properties at risk. We have a team of dedicated IICRC-Certified technicians that can respond at the heels of a devastating crisis to offer real-time mitigation solutions to save you money and protect what matters most in your storm-damaged property.
 
It does not take much exterior damage for your South Daytona home to become vulnerable to disasters like flooding. With torrential rainfall and runoff, an opening in the roof or a broken window can allow substantial volumes of floodwater to penetrate the property. We have a team of contractors able to help during these situations with emergency board up and tarping services. The faster these solutions can get installed, the less severe flooding becomes inside the house.
 
We have a broad inventory of recovery tools and equipment, including high-efficiency extractors that can help to even the odds against standing water in South Daytona homes. Saturation and overexposure are also concerns, and we have many available air mover and dehumidification units to begin addressing these threats as they get discovered.
 
We are a name that has become trusted for a fast response and high-quality results. Our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange team can show you how We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. Give us a call anytime that emergencies occur at (386) 788-0358.

Dependable, Reliable, Mold Remediation Services Available in Daytona Beach

Mold growth can spread quickly when the right conditions exist. If you see or smell mold, contact SERVPRO for remediation services.

Our Technicians Determine the Cause of the Mold Infestation Before Remediation

Depending on the kind of material mold takes hold of, various types exist. In other words, the mold that develops on the concrete or masonry surfaces on your Daytona Beach property is an entirely different species than the mold that forms on your walls, plastic, or metallic surfaces. 

However, regardless of the amount or type that creates mold damage in your Daytona Beach area home, treatment remains the same. A qualified mold remediation specialist never looks at the species of mold in your home. They should instead, be looking for ways to make your home safe for you to live in again. 

Mold only needs three factors present to grow, water, food, and air. When even one is missing, mold can sit dormant for weeks, waiting for the right conditions exist. With that said, a qualified mold remediation company, like SERVPRO, is likely to look for the source of water intrusion causing the problem, before attempting to mitigate any damage that might exist.

What Secondary Issues Can Result From Water Damage to Your Daytona Home?

Storms happen in Florida. Call SERVPRO for all of your water damage restoration needs.

Daytona Beach's Flood Damage Technicians Talk About Testing Instruments

Severe weather can strike your Daytona Beach neighborhood and create conditions that ruin your building materials and structural components. High-speed winds can blow landscaping rocks or break tree branches off and throw them into your exterior walls or windows and cause excessive flood damage to take place inside your dwelling. Holes created in one of your walls or windows can allow moisture to enter your home and ruin your contents or building materials. When structural components get wet, they can lose their structural integrity and weaken. If organic substances inside your home stay wet for more than 48 hours, then your flood damage situation can turn into a scenario where mold is present.  

It is wise to call in a professional company like SERVPRO to prevent secondary problems like mold growth or issues caused by excessive humidity. We have experience in dealing with a wide variety of flood damage problems in Daytona Beach. Our highly trained team is good at diagnosing even the problems that may not be noticeable to the plain eye at first. As soon as we show up at your residence, we begin the inspection phase. We first inspect the affected areas of your house and make sure that there are not any potential safety hazards. After we deem the working area safe, we begin inspecting your contents and building materials for water-related issues to see what items got affected and how bad the issues got.  

To test where moisture went, our SERVPRO technicians use moisture sensors and specialized meters. We always use the most advanced technology during the restoration process starting with the testing phase. When testing for the presence of moisture in carpet, we use a sensor that beeps and lights up when its probes sense water. When we test moisture in wood or drywall, we use a meter that works by hammering metal probes into the material, which gives a percentage or parts per million reading that we use to determine what drying equipment to set up.  

If you ever need fast 24/7 service after a storm, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 immediately.

When you discover a leaky pipe call SERVPRO as soon as possible, they will arrive on the scene and get to work.

Water Removal Technicians In Daytona Beach Talk About The Two Ways Moisture Gets Removed

When a pipe breaks inside your Daytona Beach apartment, water can enter your dwelling in two different forms. When conducting water removal, professional companies such as SERVPRO work on removing moisture from your building materials and contents as well as vapor in the air. Primary problems occur when objects inside your unit get saturated or slightly damp. Secondary issues take place when elevated relative humidity levels cause other issues with your possessions and structural components. Water removal usually involves quickly removing moisture from substances in your home and reducing high humidity levels. 

Any time excessive moisture enters your apartment building, it is wise to call in our SERVPRO team so that we can help prevent issues like mold growth in the future. Prompt water removal in Daytona Beach needs to be conducted as soon as possible so that secondary problems like drywall issues due to moisture and fungal development get avoided.

We know that arriving at your home right after you call us is essential to preventing mold growth. We answer our phones at all times of the day, and our technicians are located nearby so that we can arrive at your apartment and begin work immediately. 

Our highly trained team at SERVPRO is IICRC certified and has experience with mitigating moisture-related issues whether they are big or small. We know that the first step to removing moisture is the extraction phase. We realize that it is much more efficient to vacuum up the water when it is in the liquid form then to remove it when it is inside your building materials and present in the air. 

Once all of the liquid H20 gets removed, we begin the rapid structural drying process. During this step, we push the air inside your home around and use dehumidifiers to remove water vapor from your indoor atmosphere. If you ever need moisture removed from your apartment unit, call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange at (386) 788-0358 24/7.

Winter Flood Damage in Daytona Homes

11/28/2018 (Permalink)

Wet Winter Months Could Allow Flooding in Daytona Homes

While Daytona residents can expect just about every possible weather system beyond snowfall, the winter months can still prove threatening to area properties.

Why SERVPRO Answers the Call from Ponce Inlet Homeowners for Mold Remediation Help--Because We Can

Messy Mold Damage in Ponce Inlet--That Is Why to Call SERVPRO

Mold Damage Remediation Options for Ponce Inlet Residents  

There are high chances of disturbing mold spores during the mold damage remediation process. Since the exposure can lead to health effects, we always wear protective equipment and clothing. Some of the PPE personal protective equipment that we use when attending to such incidents in Ponce Inlet include gloves, goggles, a respirator or a dust filter mask, and a Tyvek suit. We look at how severe the mold problem is before selecting suitable personal protective equipment.

Disrupting the spores during mold damage remediation may make them spread to other parts of your Ponce Inlet property. Our SERVPRO technicians employ containment measures to limit the movement of the mold spores. For instance, we use a plastic sheeting together with painters tape to seal off openings such as vents and doorways. It is also advisable to minimize dust particles since the spores can stick to dust and then quickly spread around the structure.
 
Introducing negative pressure at the site can also act as a containment measure. We achieve this by running an exhaust fan or air scrubber with a HEPA filtration system that is blowing out air via a duct to the exterior. When that happens, the stirred up mold spores in the room end up outside. Also, we always switch off the building's air conditioning systems before the cleaning process starts. To reduce dust, we may moisten any dry mold growth. At this point, we can use a cleaning agent to remove the contamination from hard surfaces. Why SERVPRO? We can also utilize a soda blaster to lightly remove mold from untreated wood like found in attics and crawl space in this southern climate.  
 
After removing the contamination from the surface, we have to clean them using a disinfectant to reduce chances of the problem returning after the remediation. Usually, spores remain on surfaces even after the cleaning is complete, so, the disinfectant plays a deactivating role. While we can clean and reuse non-porous materials such as hard plastic, metal, and glass, in most cases, our SERVPRO technicians discard porous items such as carpets, books, and drywall if heavily infested.
 
SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange is an experienced and reliable leader in the restoration industry. We're Faster to Any Size Disaster whether it is in your residential or commercial property. Call us at (386) 788-0358 when you need our 24-hour emergency services.
