Fire Damage In Your Daytona Home From Overloaded Circuits

Fire Damage Fire Damage In Your Daytona Home From Overloaded Circuits Fires can still happen from overloaded circuits, even when you are careful.

Fire Damage Caused By Overloaded Circuits

When too many appliances in your Daytona home are receiving electricity, what can happen? Usually, the power automatically turns off at the breaker, and a fuse may even burn out depending on the age of the wiring of the electrical circuit. When too many power sources are getting electricity from the electrical circuit, the power shuts off until the issue is fixed, but sometimes, a fire can start. To avoid this, you need to know the number of volts of electricity that can run into your home and not ever have too many power sources running simultaneously.

Fires can still happen from overloaded circuits, even when you are careful. The fire damage left behind in your Daytona home can be devastating. You need to focus on you and your family during this time, not all the ins and outs of getting your home back together. Therefore, you need the help of our professional SERVPRO staff. We can even help talk to your insurance company for you.

Before we clean your home, we do tests to determine the right cleaning method, which means the method that effectively can remove the residues from the surface or material without doing damage to the material or surface itself. One of the goals of testing is to categorize materials as washable or non-washable.

Washable materials are ones which SERVPRO techs can wet clean. It involves applying a water-based cleaning product to the material that does not damage it. Non-washable materials are ones that cannot be wet-cleaned. If we apply a water-based cleaning product to the material it could result in additional damage, so the material has to be cleaned with a dry cleaning method.

The kind of residues on a material can also determine the cleaning method. Grease or oil-based residues require a dry solvent cleaning agent, even though the material we are cleaning would not be damaged by water-based products.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach understands the different methods of cleaning up fire damage and when to use them in your home in Holly Hill, Ormond By the Sea, or Mound Grove. After you have experienced a fire, get a hold of us as soon as possible at (386) 677-9993 so we can help clean up the mess properly.

Prioritize Water Removal from Daytona Grocery Stores to Get Doors Open Faster

2/1/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Prioritize Water Removal from Daytona Grocery Stores to Get Doors Open Faster Water damage can have greater effects on grocery stores due to their large floor space and various shelf layouts.

SERVPRO Offers Fast and Thorough Water Removal Services

When larger retail establishments like grocery stores in Daytona require water removal, they often need it on a scale that is much larger than the average residence or commercial establishment. With above average amounts of floor space, various shelf layouts, and the addition of potential contaminants such as chemicals and mold growth, safe and adequate water removal can prove to be too much for less-experienced mitigation and restoration companies. SERVPRO stocks the tools and training needed to handle these bigger jobs and can help you to overcome any water damage disaster in your business.

Whether the entire store floods or a small area becomes soaked, you should prioritize water removal from your Daytona grocery store as much as possible. Failure to act on damaging events can only compound problems later: a simple air drying and dehumidification process could be replaced by lengthy, expensive mold damage cleanup later on down the road. While modern stores are usually somewhat resistant to the effects of water, employing tiled floors, rubberized baseboards, and other mindful construction practices, these measures can only go so far in protecting your assets. To ensure their safety, be sure to call SERVPRO so that we can at least evaluate the situation and determine whether additional action should be taken.

Should the problem be severe enough to warrant our services, we make it our goal to keep progress as fast as possible and costs to a minimum to place less strain on you. We use industrial-grade tools and techniques to remove water from the floor, materials, and air of your store and get doors back open as soon as possible. Also, our inventory management services can come in handy if you need help identifying lost assets and products.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach has served the local community with reliable, inexpensive, and fast water damage mitigation and restoration services for years. Call us for help or a quote at (386) 677-9993.

Appearance of Mold Damage in an Ormond Beach Home

1/22/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Appearance of Mold Damage in an Ormond Beach Home Finding a patch of mold in your home can cause you to panic. Relax and contact SERVPRO for an investigation and remediation efforts.

Team SERVPRO Responds Quickly to a Mold Infestation in Your Home

Microbes thrive in humid conditions, in the presence of cellulose and other plant matter. Dust in Ormond Beach residences often holds a significant amount of cellulose, and can also hold onto moisture, making an excellent home for microbial invaders.

Homes can contain vast areas of mold damage in Ormond Beach. Mold, and other microbes, may be incredibly tiny, but when in a colony, they can cover large areas of a wall. Some species form fluffy, cloud-like exteriors that, if not so damaging to a home's interior, or the possible cause of health effects, might seem beautiful. Other species come in dark colors, smell foul, and ooze excess moisture.

Regardless of appearances, all mold needs remediation. Mold damage happens because mold's hyphae, the root-like appendages, burrow into the surface of the material it rests upon, slowly going deeper each day. This slowly breaks the material down, causing disintegration and loss of the material.

SERVPRO technicians perform mold remediation for both homeowners and businesses. During remediation, our technicians wear protective garments that not only keep them from becoming overly exposed to mold, but also from spreading the mold around inside your home.

Other ways we contain the mold and other microbes include plastic sheeting and air scrubbers. Plastic sheeting keeps microbes from leaving, while air scrubbers remove those that do manage to escape. Mold, as well as other types of microbes, live everywhere on our planet, including inside your home. Total elimination of microbes, of any kind, cannot happen. There are too many, and because they exist everywhere, they would only return in a short time.

Control of the environment inside your home is the only way to control these microorganisms effectively. SERVPRO recommends continuous dehumidification as part of control efforts. We can install a dehumidifier that requires little effort on your part to help prevent recurrence of mold damage.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach can help your home, and family, recover from the effects of mold damage. Whenever you find mold in an area larger than ten square feet, call us at (386) 677-9993 for the latest in technology and developments.

Sales associates know it is crucial to keep qualified buyers interested throughout the process. Displaying beautiful cars on stained floors or in front of peeling paint diminishes the efforts of even the most highly skilled salesperson.

Daytona showrooms regularly undergo significant cleaning, but signs of commercial water damage do not disappear without specialized efforts. Finding the source of water causing the damage is one of the primary tasks SERVPRO assists area businesses. Our technicians use devices that detect moisture, even in scant amounts, that should not exist inside your showroom.

Once we eliminate the source of water, we devote our energy toward clearing away any damaged materials. Removing these often still-waterlogged materials dramatically reduces the amount of moisture that can evaporate into the air, protecting your entire showroom.

Grilling Accidents can Lead to Fire Damage on Your Daytona Beach Home's Patio

Fire Damage Grilling Accidents can Lead to Fire Damage on Your Daytona Beach Home's Patio Fires on Properties, Both Outdoors and Inside Daytona Beach Properties, Get Recovery Help from SERVPRO

SERVPRO Restores Outside Living Areas to Pre-Loss Fire Damaging Conditions

Year-round cooking out is one of the perks of living in our sunny state. Daytona Beach residents can grill guests' food while entertaining on the patio. Preparing food outside keeps the kitchen inside cleaner while still providing a beautiful setting for everyone.

Holding parties outside in Daytona Beach can result in fire damage if grills and fuel endure mishandling or accidents happen. Just like in the kitchen, fires can spread quickly if grease catches on fire. Charcoal spilling out can also spread out and catch outside furnishings or other items on fire. Being outdoor, the smell of smoke can avoid detection, allowing fire or smoldering embers to grow.

Garages, patio overhangs, and other structures are at risk of fire damage when such situations develop. At SERVPRO, we train our technicians so they can restore, though not always replace, any interior or exterior construction after a fire takes place. They earn certificates, such as the Fire and Smoke Restoration (FSRT), from the IICRC, ensuring their capabilities in restoring the many different structures they might encounter at various homes and businesses.

Restorative work includes much more than tearing out damaged and unusable components of residences. Cleaning soot and smoke deposits from affected areas is a large part of what we do when working on a home. This cleaning aspect includes removing grime from the decorative brick on walkways and exterior walls, concrete patios, decks, and anything else whose surfaces become covered in soot. Soft materials like outdoor furniture's cushions and other upholstery can also benefit from attention by our employees. We work hard to make everything “Like it never even happened” so any future barbeques can proceed as planned.

When an outdoor fire burns, chemicals for pools, lawns and insect control can often become involved. We can also help dispose or otherwise handle such situations, so you do not need to worry about these posing any problems to your children, pets, or lawn. Minimizing spills from these substances also protects wildlife and groundwater.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach wants to assist you in resolving any fire damage at your residence. Our 24-hour service is always ready to answer your call at (386) 677-9993.

Water Removal from Water-soaked Leather Items in Daytona Homes

11/17/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage Water Removal from Water-soaked Leather Items in Daytona Homes SERVPRO has specialized equipment and technology to restore your leather furniture from water damage.

Daytona Water Removal Services Include Restoring Water-Soaked Leather Furniture 

Daytona homeowners normally have a difficult time cleaning water-damaged leather items when a flooding event occurs, primarily due to the complexities at play. Leather is a soft, limber material created from the skin of different animals, such as goats, sheep, pigs, or cows. It is treated to produce the soft surface that is popularly seen in coverings for clothing, furniture, and accessories like purses. Leather is very absorbent and tends to stain easily, leading to marks if water spills onto the material.

If any of your leather items sustain water damage, you can count on SERVPRO for water removal and drying services. Our IICRC-certified technicians are available 24/7, providing water damage restoration services to Daytona residents and its environs. We're Faster to Any Size Disaster, ready to restore your property to preloss conditions as quickly and efficiently as possible.

When an animal is alive, its natural oils lubricate the microscopic fibers that hold leather together. During the tanning process, these oils are washed away and then replaced with others. When the material comes into contact with water, it partially dissolves these oils and moves them to the surface, causing them to evaporate. During this time, the bonds between the fibers loosen, leaving the leather stiff and cracked. This weakening of fibers is irreversible.

Water damage from water spills is not usually a major cause for concern when it comes to leather. In fact, most leather products come with a protective layer that makes it possible to clean up water spills before the material absorbs the liquid. However, flooded leather furniture is highly susceptible to water damage and requires immediate water removal. The minerals and contaminants in the water can damage the foam and frame in the furniture, resulting in a costly repair.

Water damage from clean water is relatively easy to fix. SERVPRO technicians can often determine the extent of the water damage by the presence of a bad odor, which may require replacing the foam and/or frame altogether. This is typically applicable in cases where the furniture is particularly expensive. If there is no smell but the piece still looks bad, our experts can retouch that part.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources


If a flooding event leaves severe water damage to your leather, SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach may be in a position to help. We have a wide range of products and equipment for dealing with various types of water damage, allowing us to return your property to preloss conditions speedily. Call us anytime at (386) 677-9993.

Mold Damage Struggles in Holly Hill

11/12/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Damage Struggles in Holly Hill When you see mold in your home that can be attributed to your AC system, it's time to contact SERVPRO to investigate and remediate.

Our Technicians Remediate Mold Infestations Plus Provide Tips for Avoiding Future Ones

Living in a warm and humid climate can pose some severe issues with regard to microbial growth. New construction sometime exacerbates the situation by limiting fresh air flow, concentrating humidity because windows and doors no longer “breathe" in a tightly built home. An experienced mold remediation company can help you deal with current mold problems and take the steps to avoid more fungal frustrations in the future.
 
The HVAC system in your home may be contributing to mold damage in Holly Hill. There are a broad variety of reasons why an air conditioner or combination climate control system encourages mold growth. Understanding how and why mold grows indoors clarifies the problem, and our trained technicians master proven strategies to manage mold in such a way that you may never see an active colony again.
 
Mold spores are in the air and on surfaces around you right now. Rarely do they cause any issues, and it is entirely unrealistic to believe you can eliminate them. What you can do is limit the one substance that almost guarantees active mold growth -- water. Although we need water to drink and cleanse, excess moisture from spills, leaks, and even high levels of humidity can fuel mold growth. SERVPRO mold remediators can abate any mold colonies that are multiplying in your home now and help you make changes that prevent future mold issues.
 
AC and HVAC systems are notorious for supporting mold growth, particularly if they have moisture buildup. Window units and central AC also suffer from drainage and water ponding issues that can support mold growth. The line that should drain away the condensed moisture can be a mold hotel if it is clogged. SERVPRO offers duct cleaning and line cleaning and maintenance that dramatically reduces the troublesome moisture.
 
Another unexpected AC-related mold multiplier is a system that is too large for your square footage. Air conditioning works by pulling moisture out of the air on condenser coils and flushing it away. If your AC unit is cooling the air faster than typical because it is intended for a more extensive space, it will not cycle long enough to condense the water out of the air. Humidity rises, even if the air seems cool. A humidity level of 60 percent or more can ignite mold growth without any other water involvement. When we evaluate your home, our SERVPRO technicians measure moisture levels, pinpointing this humidity issue.
 
We contain and remove an active mold colony, and then sanitize to inhibit more mold growth. SERVPRO’s moisture seeking and elimination services are what will help you avoid a new outbreak of mold.
 
Let us help you troubleshoot persistent mold damage issues with one call to (386) 677-9993. SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach has the knowledge and training to help you get control over microbial growth.
