Dehumidification And Encouraging Air Circulation In Ormond Beach Properties With Water Damage

Part of owning a property is being able to rectify issues quickly when things go wrong. Garages, ground floors or crawlspaces can all be adversely affected by faulty plumbing or heavy rainfall. Over time, the microbes present in water can multiply, causing malodor, staining, or mold growth. Managing these problems is best left to a professional who can predict possible outcomes and perform the tasks that are essential to returning your home to its preloss condition.

We own and operate a local solution for water damage in Ormond Beach. Time can often be a significant factor in the scale of harm caused to property from moisture, so it is crucial to bring in professional assistance as quickly as possible. SERVPRO technicians are trained to identify potential areas of concern as well as experienced in controlling humidity and removing excess moisture from home. By doing so, we can not only restore the property but also control microbial growth and prevent secondary mold issues.

The primary method of removing excess moisture is by manipulating airflow and humidity levels to encourage evaporation. Rapid air movers use centrifugal motion alongside a heating element to create rapid airflow. The increased air circulation lifts moisture from the surface while increasing surface temperature, from the heating element, pulls more moisture out of the surface. The combination of the two can be a formidable method of drying a large surface area rapidly.

Water moves from wet to dry and can be absorbed by various surfaces, furniture, and fabrics. Desiccant dehumidifiers can help to dry the air to below 40 grains per pound chemically. By doing so, absorbed moisture can be drawn out of hard floors or fabrics as water moves from wet to dry. This exchange of moisture can be vital in controlling secondary damages like microbial growth, odor, and mold.

Property restoration requires professional equipment and expertise. Contact SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 today to arrange a visit from a local technician.

Why SERVPRO Ormond Beach Retail Shops and Eateries Trust SERVPRO for Restoration Services Ormond Beach Bakery Is Open for Business after a Water Loss Thanks to SERVPRO

Commercial Floodwater Removal Services for Ormond Beach  

Many situations can create a need for commercial water removal. For instance, when the water main outside the local bakery malfunctions. The highly pressured water can quickly surge into the building carrying along with it mud and debris. This can prevent normal foot traffic and baking from carrying on as usual. We are here to let you know how we deal with such events when they happen in Ormond Beach.

Any Ormond Beach-based bakery or retail shop needs water removal services when water and mud quickly enter the building.  Our SERVPRO technicians can respond almost immediately and access the site. After that, we can come up with appropriate procedures to extract excess water from different parts of the building. Our goal is to quickly mitigate the muddy water flooding from damaging equipment and cooking appliances.
 
By using shovels, we can remove the mud and use water extraction procedures such as the use of submersible pumps to remove the excess water. If the bakery has soaked drywall, our SERVPRO technicians can remove a layer of the drywall – usually a few feet up – to expose the wall cavities for efficient drying. We can then place air movers and dehumidifiers within the building to enhance the drying process.
 
Since a bakery is an operation where food is prepared, our SERVPRO technicians eliminate conditions which may favor the growth of mold. Sacks of flour, sugar, condiments and such are very susceptible to absorption via high humidity, so we work extra hard and fast to extract water vapor from the kitchen area, the front counter area, and also any dining zone. We do that by ensuring the area is completely dry, and we apply disinfectants to deactivate the spores. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) adhere to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards to guarantee the safety of your customers.
 
SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach can restore your commercial property to its preloss state whenever possible. Call (386) 677-9993 to have those cakes and donuts ready for the next buyer.

Ormond Beach Hospitality Enterprises Often Rely on SERVPRO for Water Damage Restoration and Mitigation

Commercial Ormond Beach Hospitality Enterprises Often Rely on SERVPRO for Water Damage Restoration and Mitigation The Green Fleet from SERVPRO Mitigates Water Damage in Your Ormond Beach Hotel or Enterprise--Just Call Us!

HVAC Water Damage in Your Ormond Beach Hotel

The ductwork of your Ormond Beach hotel often gets hidden behind walls and above ceilings to provide a simple and easy-to-manage aesthetic to your entire business. As each room of your hotel gets serviced with independent portions of this primary HVAC system, the water damage that begins in joints and elbows of the network do not always indicate a widespread concern. Condensation damages can get easily managed with the servicing of the air ducts and thorough drying. The commercial-grade HVAC unit itself, however, can still leave your hotel susceptible to water damage without the proper maintenance and upkeep.

Drains on the unit are often the culprit for HVAC water damage in Ormond Beach hotels, as these points can become clogged. With the hundreds of guests your facility can accommodate, a single breach in one of these powerful cooling systems for your property could spread quickly to affect multiple rooms and lodgers. The hotel needs a fast response from trained and qualified professionals like our SERVPRO team that waste no time in beginning both mitigation and containment efforts.

With these units often getting installed on the roof of the hotel, any guest on the top floor of your hotel becomes at risk should the machine malfunction and begin dispelling water through the ceiling. In a very large hotel, water chillers may also be installed on the roof, which presents another type of potential flooding problem. With the excessive use that cooling units get through nearly every season in the favorable Florida climate, this water damage can quickly damage multiple units and require relocation of your guests and fast containment strategies to prevent rooms directly below also to experience this damage.

Much of the fast response that you can get from our SERVPRO team with air movers and dehumidification units helps to prevent a severe strike to your reputation. With so many annual events happening in the Greater Daytona area, a compromised rating could affect your profits considerably.

It is always our business to get you back in business quickly, and that means working around these damaging situations to keep your hotel running as well as possible while restoration completes. Give our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach team a call anytime you need us at (386) 677-9993.

Water Cleanup Professionals In Ormond Beach Explain The Importance Of Final Cleaning

If excessive moisture ever enters your home in Ormond Beach, the problems can become a major headache and expense to you and your insurance company. Calling in a professional water cleanup company such as SERVPRO can help save you and your insurer money. When most people think of restoring the damage, they think of fixing the problems directly occurred by contact with moisture. Whereas many issues can get created by objects getting wet inside your house, other situations can occur after the drying process has proved to be successful. A major part of any water cleanup process is the final cleaning and deodorization procedures.

Our team as SERVPRO always strives to return your house to its preloss state, “Like it never even happened.” The initial water cleanup process in Ormond Beach does matter a lot because we can prevent future, secondary issues during this stage. However, even after your building materials and contents get all of the moisture removed from them, other problems such as dirty items or foul odors can still prevail. Once things get wet, they can attract dirt and dust from the air and become soiled. When dealing with porous materials, mildew-like aromas can be prevalent after the substances get dried out.

During most restoration procedures, our SERVPRO technicians complete carpet and fabric cleaning as a part of the final cleansing and deodorization process. During this stage, we use our truck-mounted, carpet cleaning machine to remove stains and odors from your carpeting materials. An essential step of the carpet cleaning process is the rinsing stage.

If carpets or fabrics do not get rinsed adequately, dirt can be easily attracted to the clean materials. We always use water and an advanced rinsing agent to ensure the best quality final cleaning job. In many restoration situations, we use a fabric rinse and color set chemical. Our industrially advanced chemical formula is a pleasant-scented acid that is often used in cleaning fabrics and rinsing carpets.

Anytime you need moisture removed from your structural components or building materials, call in the experts at SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 shortly after you notice a moisture-related issue.

SERVPRO Can Help When the sink in your kitchen Causes Flooding.

Water Damage SERVPRO Can Help When the sink in your kitchen Causes Flooding. Save the swimming lessons for the beach, not your home.

Don’t let your home overtake you with water damage.

Hoses and pipes on your home appliances experience heavy usage in their lifetime and can eventually fail. A broken hose on a dishwasher, sink, or washing machine can output large quantities of water in a short period of time, causing havoc in your household. The clean up and restoration process after such an event is bound to be stressful, so it is usually best to leave the clean up to professionals.

If you ever experience water damage in your Ormond Beach home, then you should contact professionals from SERVPRO. Our water damage restoration technicians (WRT) have experience in water damage emergencies and can quickly arrive at your home to begin the clean up process. Most homes have walls made out of drywall with insulation tucked away behind it. Once water from your broken appliance begins to pool, it can seep through drywall and into the wall cavities and insulation, potentially causing irreversible damage. Insulation is designed to resist heat flow, helping keep your home temperature constant. Water can permanently reduce the resistance to heat flow (R-value) of non-fiberglass insulation, requiring it to be stripped out of your walls and discarded.

SERVPRO technicians are Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified and can force excess moisture from your walls with air movers and dehumidifiers. Flooding from a broken appliance is usually not too severe and we can often sometimes dry out affected insulation without the need for it to be stripped and replaced. To ensure that your walls are completely dry, we can search for excess moisture with moisture meters and can drill holes in your walls to facilitate the removal of additional water we detect. This has the added benefit of helping prevent the growth of mold in your walls.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach/Ormond Beach is here to help if something has broken in your home and caused water damage. If you have a water-related emergency, don't hesitate to contact us at any time at (386) 677-9993.

Indoor Air Quality Concerns After a Fire in Ormond Beach Condos

Many condos that you can find along the stretches of Ormond Beach are bunched together, with sometimes multiple units sharing a floor of a multi-level structure. Even with each of these units being a separate property from another, many of the same elements and utilities get shared in the space between the individual properties. Water utilities, gas piping, and sometimes even elements of the HVAC and air duct system can become connected between units. While few property owners would notice this connection, it can become apparent when disasters like fire loss incidents occur. 

Fire damages in your Ormond Beach condo can occur in many stages and levels of severity, and with how quickly these disasters can find a footing in a smaller space like a condominium, effects like smoke, soot, and other airborne contaminants can provide health hazards for those exposed for prolonged periods. Without the right experience and equipment to address fire loss incidents in your condo, it is important to trust our SERVPRO team to arrive quickly with these effective tools and expertise. 

While one of the most significant concerns of condo owners is the high-end construction materials that can become at risk of irreparable damage, there are other effects that you must also consider. With connections like the HVAC system and shared walls for units, effects like indoor air quality threats, smoke damage, and soot can find its way out of your immediate condo and into neighboring residences. 

Fire indoor air quality concerns like carcinogens, contaminants, particulates, debris, and even mold spores can get addressed with the purification equipment in our recovery arsenal. Our SERVPRO team can utilize air scrubbers, hydroxyl generators, and ozone machines to filter affected and compromised air through a HEPA filter to trap particles. 

Working quickly to address indoor air quality threats can reduce the risk of these damages spreading to neighboring properties and prolonging restoration or making these efforts costlier. No matter when disaster strikes, you can count on our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach professionals to make the effects “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (386) 677-9993.

Flood Cuts Save Daytona Beach Home from Flood Damage 

In the case of flood damage to a home, sometimes it looks worse before the completion of full restoration. Water tends to recede quickly and wicks into sheetrock and sets a house up for secondary damages such as mold, foul odors or weakening of building materials.

SERVPRO arrived at a home in Daytona Beach that had flood damage from intense storms. Groundwater entered the kitchen and laundry room. The homeowner had put down towels and attempted to mop up the water, but reported the walls felt wet and water was appearing by the baseboards. This type of water intrusion is category three, also known as “black water.” It has the potential to have toxins and contaminants. It is vital to have it professionally mitigated as quickly as possible.

Our technicians arrived on site quickly and used portable extractors to remove any remaining moisture. We scoped the affected area to determine when the water migrated in the rooms. Our moisture detectors showed the water behind baseboards, and it had wicked into the porous sheetrock. We measured where the moisture stopped in the sheetrock and performed flood cuts roughly six inches above that moisture line. We removed the baseboards as our moisture readings showed excess moisture. This action lets the wall cavities thoroughly dry. 

We use air movers positioned to force high-velocity air across surfaces. This action causes even deeply rooted water vapor to rise to the surface where our dehumidifiers capture it. We use specialized equipment such as the Injecti-Dry. This setup forced air into wall cavities for thorough drying. 

Once dry, SERVPRO technicians cleaned and disinfected all surfaces to ensure they were sanitary. Once cleaned, the technician offered suggestions for the necessary repairs for the areas affected by flood damage. The homeowner and adjuster agreed to work with our building services to make the full restoration of the home seamless.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach is available 24-hours to handle flood damage of any size. Call us at (386) 677-9993, and our technicians arrive on-site within hours to restore your home to its preloss condition and make it “Like it never even happened.”

How Small Fires Create Significant Damage in Ormond

5/3/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Damage How Small Fires Create Significant Damage in Ormond Even though this fire was contained to the kitchen, smoke and soot traveled throughout the home.

Restoration after Fire Damage in Ormond Includes Structure, Contents, and Deodorization Techniques

House fires in Ormond can create unexpected hardships for your family, but SERVPRO understands how our presence can help with recovering and getting everything “Like it never even happened” again for you. Fire produces chemical changes, as well as physical ones. When things inside your house burn, their combustion produces smoke while becoming damaged. The smoke leaves a residue that continues to produce odors and contaminate anything that it comes into contact. 

Residents do not need a considerable blaze to experience fire damage in Ormond and the problems it creates. Smaller, more isolated fires can also cause issues. SERVPRO trains employees to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards, preparing them for the wide variety of restoration tasks your house requires. Visibly, you can see the damage to your property's structure, as well as many of your family's personal belongings. Even after extensive cleaning and restoration work, odors can continue to make their way through the air and bother your family. 

At SERVPRO, we address your home's issues at the best opportune time. Deodorization work cannot begin before we clean and restore structural deficits, and we need to check the safety of the overall framework to ensure safe working conditions. Contents need attention to their situation, as well, and a rapid response to this area of your property means less permanent damage occurs. 

Cleaning of your home's contents involves brushes, sponges, small vacuums, and even toothpicks and cotton swabs, as the individual item requires. Some items can get cleaned best in our ultrasonic bath equipment. At your home, we search for areas containing soot inside walls, behind drywall, and in cabinets. We remove residue from such regions, and when heavy carbon seems embedded in materials, we might prime the area before restoration begins. 

Once the contents and structure no longer contain soot and smoke residue in accessible areas, we deodorize with different treatments. These can include thermal fogging, ozone or hydroxyl generation, among others. We discuss with you the benefits and drawbacks of each, as well as their effectiveness. Keeping communication open with our customers is one way we ensure their satisfaction and the completeness of our work. 

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach is always ready to help homeowners in Mound Grove and Holly Hill get their homes and lives back in order after fire damage makes a mess of things. Call us at (386) 677-9993 to get things started in a positive direction after a disaster strikes your family.

A move out also enables our technicians to proceed with the restoration job efficiently and smoothly to satisfy our customers.

To offer the move out services, our SERVPRO technicians first conduct an initial scope and estimate. We sort clean items and claim items. We move the contents to storage or a warehouse and take precautions to prevent damage. We then clean and deodorize the items carefully. We repack the items and return them to the home of our customer after the restoration of the structure is complete. We communicate consistently and clearly throughout every phase of the move-out.
