The Truth is You Are Not the Only Person Concerned About Flood Damage in Ormond Beach

Why SERVPRO The Truth is You Are Not the Only Person Concerned About Flood Damage in Ormond Beach During hurricane season, your home can get flooded. Don't despair, contact the trained technicians at SERVPRO for water removal services.

Why SERVPRO Uses Antimicrobial Cleansers When Mitigating Flood Damaged Homes in Ormond Beach

Any amount of flooding can deposit numerous types of microorganisms into invaded spaces, and your Ormond Beach property is no exception. These tiny living things can number in the tens of thousands in a cup of water. At SERVPRO, we take the possibility of infection from such microbes very seriously and do all we can to protect not only ourselves but also your family.

Protecting your family when they come back to your home from the dangers of microbes caused by flood damage in Ormond Beach requires some special cleaning techniques, and this is why SERVPRO uses antimicrobial agents wherever possible. While removing debris from your home, or cleaning up soiled laundry for laundering at our facility, we wear personal protective equipment (PPE).

Because your family is going to live in the home, we need to do everything possible to rid it of the pathogens flooding carried in and make it safe again. These microscopic things get pushed into cracks so tiny that you can barely see them. Many end up in the outer portions of slightly porous materials, including wood and concrete. We use cleansers that act quickly in killing microbes, but that act less harshly than bleach solutions. During our work, we use hydroxyl machines to clean the air of anything, also, and this keeps the air free of anything that the air carries around from one area to another.

The presence of mold and spores increases dramatically after a flooding incident. Because of this, we also use air scrubbers to increase hydroxyl machines' effectiveness. Once done with the cleanup of structural damage and elimination of microbial populations, we begin working on odor control, restoration, painting, reinstallation of carpeting and other flooring options, making your house whole again, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach has the equipment needed to restore your Holly Hill, Tomoka Estates, or Mound Grove residence after flood damage takes its toll. Call us at (386) 677-9993, so we can send out IICRC-certified crews that and make restoration happen quickly for you.

Recovering Flood Damage To Your Daytona Beach Restaurant

With Daytona Beach being such a popular destination for tourism from its illustrious beaches to nationally recognized events like Bike Week, having a restaurant in a prime location can be a profitable experience. With the severe weather that regularly threatens the coastal communities here, business owners remain vigilant to provide the best lines of defense against natural disasters like flooding which can stop a restaurant in its tracks until the appropriate restoration measures have gotten taken. However, what do you do when these precautionary measures are not enough?

While there are many ways that this natural disaster can ultimately occur, overcoming these flood damages around your Daytona Beach restaurant is critical to protecting your investment in the property and returning to serve hungry patrons. Our SERVPRO professionals have a 24-hour response to emergencies and offer our customers the full measure of our mitigation capabilities with our initial visit to the property along with our Green Fleet of service vehicles.

With an immediate response to the emergency, you can contact our SERVPRO rapid response team, and our experts can get to work quickly on extracting the water and drying out the damaged areas. While there is no avoiding the likelihood of material removal for overly saturated areas of the restaurant, we can work with air movers and other drying equipment to protect furniture like booths, tables, chairs, and other investments that you have made.

While you cannot account for when disasters like flooding can occur, you can plan with the right professional team to clean up the mess quickly. Our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach rapid response team is available anytime by calling (386) 677-9993.

How to Reduce the Cost of Floodwater Extraction From Your Daytona Beach Property

1/3/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO How to Reduce the Cost of Floodwater Extraction From Your Daytona Beach Property Storms cause a lot of water damage in Florida and quick removal of the water is necessary.

Why SERVPRO? When You Need Quick Flood Extraction From Daytona Beach Homes

Daytona Beach residents know there is no way to avoid the storms in our area, but it is possible to avoid a massive restoration bill afterward. The keys to reducing costs are a quick response to the situation and a swift removal of the flood water.  

That is why SERVPRO is the best choice when it comes to flood extraction and other restoration efforts for your Daytona Beach home. Our office has an operator available 24/7, and a response team available every day of the year, including holidays, to meet residential and commercial needs.  

Our teams quickly estimate how much water is in the home and what tools and methods they need to remove and extract it. Initially, team members use commercial grade pumps to draw out the majority of the water. To fully extract it, they switch to other devices to remove them from the home.  

One of our primary tools is extraction wands which technicians can adjust the rate of vacuum and applied heat to minimize the time needed for restoration while protecting wooden floors from cracking or splitting. We can use these same devices on carpets, but we cannot guarantee 100% that they are safe for use after exposure to floodwater. With these items, we recommend removing water to make the carpet lighter and easier for proper disposal.  

SERVPRO technicians can tailor the response team and its actions to any home. There is no quality difference in our response to a one-bedroom home or a mini-mansion, only the number of personnel needed to restore each one as quickly as possible. If needed, we can draw personnel and equipment from the other 1700 franchise operations in Florida and across the country.  

Floodwater removal and water removal after a failed plumbing issue use the same equipment and methods, but floodwater requires an additional step. Outside water can contain soil, pesticides, and other contaminants. That means our technicians have to spray all standing water and surfaces that were underwater with an anti-bacterial spray. It eliminates the health threat to team members and residents if they want to inspect their home before we finish operations.  

At SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach, our goal is to return each home to its owners as quickly as we can safely do so. If you have suffered from recent flooding, and need our services, contact us at (386) 677-9993 today.

Avoid Not Doing Your Research Before Selecting a Daytona Beach Water Damage Remediation Team

12/23/2018 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Avoid Not Doing Your Research Before Selecting a Daytona Beach Water Damage Remediation Team  Water can quickly damage the space inside your home. Call SERVPRO to assess the situation and mitigate the intrusion.

Why SERVPRO is the Right Choice for Water Removal in Daytona Beach

A water spill can cause permanent damage to your private or commercial property. Often these type of damage go beyond the scope of your household cleaning products and need to be dealt with as quickly as possible. Generally speaking, the longer water is allowed to sit, the more likely permanent harm is to occur. We understand that there is a lot of choice when it comes to professional restoration, so here's why we believe we are the only viable option.

When we receive a phone call for water removal in Daytona Beach we know that time is of the essence. SERVPRO is a local company employing local technicians. Within one hour of receiving notification of loss we can arrange a service. Within four hours, we can have a technician on site. Mitigating loss is exceptionally important to our customers because it keeps claim rates low.

Water always moves from wet to dry. In the home, a large spill can be absorbed by your floorboards and saturate the subfloor. This can cause serious problems further down the line as residual moisture becomes a hotbed for microbial growth. SERVPRO is one of few companies to use advanced drying mats. These are placed on floors and can pull moisture from the subfloor underneath. By using moisture meters your technician can detect hidden moisture pockets and safely dry them.

One of the reasons we are lucky enough to have access to such advanced technology is that each SERVPRO company is backed by national resources. Unlike a regular provider, this funding allows us to invest significant amounts into our staff and equipment, keeping standards high. Technicians are given the opportunity to advance their knowledge and expertise through IICRC certification. Our customer service centers are regularly monitored so we can provide the feedback and training they need to continually stay ahead of the curve.

If your property is suffering after a water spill, contact SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 now.

Storm Damage Help Is Only A Phone Call Away When Your Daytona Beach Home Has Been Hit By A Storm SERVPRO technicians arrived just in time to implement the drying process after food damage hit a Daytona Beach home.

The First Steps Taken to Mitigate Flood Damage in Daytona Beach

If flood damage hits your home in Daytona Beach, do not panic. Although storm flooding can pose a serious threat to both your home and anything in it, SERVPRO is there to help with round-the-clock emergency responses to all major home disasters. As soon as you place a call to us, we get working to deliver you fast and critical damage mitigation services to reduce the amount of damage done to your home and keep costs to a minimum. Here is a bit of what you can expect from our initial mitigation work.

Water Extraction

In the aftermath of many cases of flood damage in Daytona Beach, the home may still contain significant volumes of pooled water either in isolated places or widely spread throughout the home. SERVPRO technicians know that getting this water out quickly is vitally important for keeping costs low, so we bring in high-power water extraction pumps that remove standing water before additional damage can set in.

Safety Evaluations

Before, during, and immediately after the water extraction process, our inspectors conduct rigorous safety evaluations of the entire home to make sure both you and our technicians are safe to enter the premises. SERVPRO inspectors are trained to identify disaster-specific signs of danger, such as bowing door frames, that can avoid serious injury later on. Once we understand the risks associated with the scene, our technicians can equip the appropriate personal protective equipment to enter the area and begin controlling the damage.

Implementation of Drying Processes

By starting the drying process early, we provide the maximum protection possible against threats such as mold damage and other time-sensitive complications of flooding. We may set up air movers, dehumidifiers, and other machines in your home to promote faster drying, and with the help of these tools, we can get your home dry and ready for restorations without added headaches.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach stands ready to respond to calls for help with flood damage in the community on a 24/7 basis. Call us at (386) 677-9993 to learn how we can help.

Water, Water Everywhere and How to Remove it From Your Daytona Property

Water Damage Water, Water Everywhere and How to Remove it From Your Daytona Property Water in this office was no match for SERVPRO.

Article title: How to Manage Water Removal in Daytona's Commercial and Private Properties

Water spills are not easy to prepare for with the majority of cases occurring from seemingly random events. A burst or split pipe, for example, can cause massive amounts of water to leak rapidly into your home and onto your contents. Equally, natural events like heavy rainfall can result in flooding. Whatever the causes, one thing is sure. Private residents and commercial property owners should familiarize themselves with restoration services to react quickly to unforeseen events.

When we arrange a service for water removal in Daytona, we rely on getting as much information as possible during the initial call. Collecting information on the type of water, its source, as well as the size of the affected area, is crucial in the planning stages. SERVPRO is a localized service that has access to national resources, so no disaster is too big or too small for us. What we do need to know is the scale of your requirements. SERVPRO can usually arrive at your property with the necessary equipment within four hours of notification of loss.

The level of standing water is an important measurement that we take. For standing water over two inches high, the fastest way to remove it is using submersible gas powered pumps. These useful pieces of equipment can drain gallons of water in minutes rather than hours, transporting excess water into a nearby utility hole or open sewer point like your bathroom.

Standing water that is less than two inches high requires a different approach. SERVPRO uses extraction equipment to remove smaller spills. These devices use suction, heating and targeted wands to remove and dry moisture quickly. Available in large truck mounted or accurate portable units, extractors can remove water without damaging your fittings. Fabrics, for example, are up to 50% weaker when wet. Using a softer approach can help reduce the likelihood of permanent damage and fits our ethos of restoring over replacing.

For a thoroughly professional service using exceptional equipment contact SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993.

The Advantages Of Hiring Our Crew To Clean And Remove Mold From Your Ormond Beach Property

11/5/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation The Advantages Of Hiring Our Crew To Clean And Remove Mold From Your Ormond Beach Property Mold growth may be the slowest disaster to affect an Ormond Beach home, but it can also go unnoticed for months.

Cleaning And Removing Mold Damage To Ormond Beach Homes

Mold growth may be the slowest disaster to affect an Ormond Beach home, but it can also go unnoticed for months. Active mold growths cause millions of dollars in damages each year.

Because mold moves slowly, many homeowners do not think it is a serious problem. The only permanent way to stop mold is to bring in a professional service to find its source, eliminate further growth, and remove active spores. To keep mold from returning, SERVPRO is ready with the latest tools and methods.

First, team members find the moisture that helped the mold to expand and grow. Finding it also means finding where the growth started and then our technicians follow it from there to determine the extent of the problem. If they cannot find the moisture source, team members use air content monitors to find the highest concentration of spores in the air which usually directs us to the source of the moisture.

Now, technicians stop and dry the source. In a home, that is often a tiny puddle of standing water. It usually results from a leaky pipe or a slow drip from the attic. With no moisture source, active spores quickly return to an inert state which prevents new damage. If there is minor damage like a cracked pipe or split line, SERVPRO team members can repair it.

With further growth halted, technicians remove the mold. They can remove a majority of it with sponges, brushes, and cleaning agents that contain an anti-fungal chemical to destroy the growth. If the mold had time to extend hyphae that dig into a food source like drywall paneling, team members remove the panels, break them down for removal, and then dispose of them. If the mold grew into a carpet in a laundry room or a finished garage, our teams dispose of that since we cannot guarantee 100% that cleaning efforts eliminate all mold spores.

For large items like curtains, drapes, and removable upholstery, technicians can use spray bottles to apply cleaning chemicals and then remove the mold with brushes. If these items contain heavy amounts of mold, team members can bring them to our facility and clean in our commercial washers designed to break down and remove mold without causing further damage.

Removing mold is not a simple process. At SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach, our goal is to return you to your residence as quickly as possible, while carefully taking you through each step. If you need our expertise, call us at (386) 677-9993 today. We are here for you.

Fire Damage Your Best Guide to Staying Safe in Daytona After a Fire Outlets and circuit breaker panels can cause safety issues after a fire. Make sure the main is turned off and contact SERVPRO to remediate.

Potential Hazards in Your Daytona Property After a Fire Damage Incident 

We encounter known and unknown hazards when we are offering fire damage restoration services. The likely hazards that we come across include structural hazards, electrical hazards, and slip, trip, and fall risks. Exercising precaution is the only way of avoiding such dangers when we are working on your Daytona property.
 
Our SERVPRO technicians turn off electrical power in your property during fire damage restoration in Daytona. However, if it is necessary for a section of the building to have the power on, we never work near such an area until it is necessary to switch off the power. If water was used to extinguish the fire, there is a danger of mixing electricity and water since water is a good conductor of electricity.

We turn off circuits at the fuse box and post a sign indicating there is a work in progress. If it is necessary to use electrical equipment when the site is wet, OSHA recommends using GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters). The GFCI can detect too much current and cut the power.
 
Several structural damages can result when a building experiences a fire. Our SERVPRO team is careful of falling or loose debris. When we are inspecting the site for potential hazards, we use the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment. For instance, we use safety boots and hard hats to offer the necessary foot and head protection. We always advise property owners to let qualified technicians inspect the building and determine if it is safe to re-enter.
 
Most injuries and accidents result from slips, trips, and falls. During the inspection, we check whether the surfaces are slippery and if there are obstacles to cause tripping and employ measures to prevent such accidents. For instance, if soot residues are resting on tile flooring, there are chances of the surface becoming slippery. We clean such areas, address any protruding nails, loose boards, and cover holes that may exist in the walking surface.
 
SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach has the expertise and equipment to clean and restore your commercial or residential property. We can answer all your questions if you call us at (386) 677-9993 at any time of the day.

Mold Remediation Contact Our Team Of Professionals If You Find Mold Growing In Your Ormond Beach Home If you're a homeowner, then you know that mold damage can be a horrible catastrophe for your house.

What To Do If You Discover Mold Damage In The Ormond Beach Area

If you're a homeowner, then you know that mold damage can be a horrible catastrophe for your house. Mold infestation can cause you or your family some health effects. It can also destroy the foundation of your house in places like the floor, walls, and ceiling. Mold can significantly reduce the real estate value of your home if you are planning to sell it.

It is essential to get a clear understanding of what mold damage is in the Ormond Beach location. Mold is a fungus that can produce spores in the air and inconspicuous places. The most interesting part is that these fungi are part of our everyday life. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claim that it is normal to have a little bit of mold in our establishment, so that means you can not avoid it completely. However, if mold damage has gotten out of control to the point of causing some health effects or structural problems, then it is time to call in a mold remediation service.

The SERVPRO experts can come in to inspect your home for mold damage and infestation. They can use HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air filtration) with a 5-micron filtration system to get rid of the mold infestation. They are one of the advanced technologies that the SERVPRO mold removal experts often use. They can even get rid of spores in the air. Not only that, they can help shield off areas with a dangerous amount of mold to keep you and your family safe. They often use advanced containment procedures to provide negative air chamber to isolate the contaminated area. The techs can also get rid of belongings that are unsalvageable that way you would not have to lift any heavy contaminated items.

If you're ready to get rid of mold damage, then give SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach a call at (386) 677-9993, and we can promptly send a team of SERVPRO mold remediation experts to your residential establishment.

Fire Damage Modern Conveniences can Create Modern Nightmares in Your Daytona Beach Home Even though the flames were confined primarily to the stove and kitchen, there is still soot and smoke damage throughout the house.

Simple Incidents Can Lead to Extensive Fire Damage in Daytona Beach

The utilities that you rely on every day for comfort in your home can leave you grappling with unexpected fire damages. Since fire can ruin your Daytona Beach property in a wide range of ways, it does not take a big blaze to leave you with a considerable restoration bill. We offer professional restoration services that can help you manage the situation.  

Furnaces can cause fire damage in Daytona Beach when puff-backs occur. Such an outcome can happen if an oil burner ignites jarring loose soot due to a malfunction. If there is a crack in the heat exchanger or venting is not done correctly, puff backs are more likely to occur. Soot from the puff back introduces a mixture of dust from the ductwork and any remnants of unburned oil to the areas it affects. Most of these residues are easy to clean, however, when the furnace emits smoke for an extended period, it bonds to the walls requiring additional efforts when cleaning to avoid damaging wall paint.  

Stoves and grills can also cause fire damages easily by depositing protein filled smoke residue on walls and other surfaces. Just being inattentive for a few seconds is all it takes for whatever you are grilling to burst into flames, filling the entire area with odorous smoke and sticky residue on surfaces. The odor is the major issue in such an incident, so our SERVPRO technicians use different approaches to deal with it. After cleaning all residues left on walls and other surfaces, we can fog the affected areas because it helps to break down any malodor particles present in the area.  

Whenever these incidents occur, quick mitigation is essential primarily because the longer you wait before removing burnt residue, the harder it becomes to get rid of effects such as odor or staining. After inspection, our SERVPRO technicians start restoration immediately preventing those additional problems.  

The effects of damage caused by simple fire incidents should not take too long to fix. Call SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach/Port Orange at (386) 788-0358. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Such an inspection allows us to determine the level of contamination and select the most suitable restoration measure to use.

For instance, when working with our SERVPRO technicians, you can remediate the mold situation in your attic. We understand the significant causes of attic mold, and there are improper ventilation, past or existing roof leaks, and inadequately exhausted dryer vents. Our team can repair leaking roofs and pay attention to the flashings around the chimneys. The idea is to keep away the moisture, which, if left unattended to can create favorable conditions for mold growth.

Moisture can also be generated by dryer vents and bathroom vents which are improperly vented. If the dryer or fans discharge directly into the attic area, the humidity increases and the situation need to be corrected. The venting should be done directly up and directed out of the roof. A hat should be placed outside the vent to prevent the possibility of water leaks.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach understands residential and commercial restoration needs since it is locally operated and owned. Call us at (386) 677-9993 and benefit from our stress-free emergency services.

Commercial Commercial Water Cleanup Services Can Return Your Ormond Beach Property To Its Pre-loss State  You need water cleanup services once your business has experienced a water event.

Commercial Water Cleanup Services

You need water cleanup services once your business has experienced a water event. If you do not address the water problem as soon as possible, there is a possibility of mold growth taking place - which can cause health effects. Additionally, quick action can help you to salvage items which are likely to incur additional damage and sometimes become unsalvageable. We're going to cover some of the approaches we use then attending to such situation in Ormond Beach.

Before our SERVPRO can determine the most suitable commercial water cleanup procedures to employ in your Ormond Beach property, there are some safety concerns which we must first address. For instance, we must first turn off the main power and check the electrical system of the building before switching it on again. We also find out if the building has been closed for a long time, if that is the case, then we have to use appropriate personal protective equipment to stay protected from mold damage.

During the cleanup process, our SERVPRO technicians who are experienced in mold cleanup check and clean the ventilating, heating, and the HVAC system. In cases where the HVAC system is flooded with water, we never turn it on since there are chances of mold contamination and the risk of spreading the spores throughout the area. After using disinfectants to clean it and removing the dirty filters, we ascertain it is clean and in some instances, we can use it when removing the excess moisture from the area.

Our SERVPRO technicians remove and discard contaminated drywall and insulation. After cleaning hard surfaces such as countertops, concrete, flooring, metal and wood furniture, we also wipe them using detergents with disinfectant properties to lower chances of future mold growth. By running dehumidifiers and fans, we can speed up the drying process.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach is a proven industry leader that offers both commercial and residential restoration services. Call us at (386) 677-9993 to have our highly skilled technicians to return your business to its earlier days.

Mitigating and Restoring a Home After Flood Damage in Ormond Beach

9/7/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Mitigating and Restoring a Home After Flood Damage in Ormond Beach Our SERVPRO technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to help restore water damage from all types of homes.

SERVPRO Uses Advanced Techniques to Restore Homes From Flood Damage

Immediately after a disaster, residents in Ormond Beach need to start cleaning up the damage. To prevent damage from spreading and increasing in scope, mitigating the existing situation becomes crucial. Restoration of a home can begin as soon as no new damage can occur.

SERVPRO encourages property owners to call after such events, particularly those involving flood damage. Damages from excessive water standing in your Ormond Beach home can only increase, spread, worsen, and eventually, cost you substantially more. Saving your home might seem impossible or highly unlikely, but we can provide the services needed to help save your property and make it livable again, just “Like it never even happened.”

Our SERVPRO services include everything needed to mitigate and restore a home. We start with removing the water with our water removal services carried out with truck-mounted pumps and hand-operated wands that remove water from tiny spaces and cracks, then carry forward with increasing the air flow in your home to dry the air. This continues while we work, as evaporation from damp materials continually forces the air to hold more water vapor.

Removing materials helps both mitigation and restoration because less moisture remains in the home and the installation of new materials can then occur. Drying out interior spaces of walls once we remove damaged drywall sections helps prevent microbial growth, warping of your home's frame, and helps us increase air flow.

Because many materials contain contaminated water from the flood, damaged materials need proper disposal. SERVPRO technicians always follow IICRC guidelines and these call for adherence to local regulations, especially when contaminated materials are involved.

Flood damage can create severe problems for homeowners in other areas involving belongings and furnishings. To keep the costs of recovering after a flood manageable, our technicians attempt wholeheartedly to restore everything possible. Furniture that contains little upholstery or thinner padding is much easier to save than overstuffed pieces. We discuss such items with our customers and help them decide which ones to save and which ones need replacements. We want those relying on our services to be satisfied with their interactions with us, from start to finish.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources


SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach can help you with your flood damage emergency by mitigating the current situation and starting the process of restoration. Contact us at (386) 677-9993 when your Tomoka Estates or Holly Hill home floods. Our services are here for you all day and night, every day of the year.

SERVPRO Doesn't Use Ordinary Tools To Clean Up Fire Damage In Ormond Beach

8/27/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage SERVPRO Doesn't Use Ordinary Tools To Clean Up Fire Damage In Ormond Beach Different types of fire damage in Ormond Beach require different cleaning products and methods to prevent further damage from occurring.

SERVPRO Doesn't Use Ordinary Tools To Clean Up After A Fire

Conventional household cleaning supplies are often inefficient or even harmful to fire damage restoration in Ormond Beach and surrounding communities. While they may be used to great effect for the everyday messes, conditions, and circumstances found throughout day-to-day life, these cleaning supplies lack the specificity and strength necessary to eliminate fire and smoke residue from a home. Some chemicals may even react negatively with residues and create harmful substances requiring greater safety precautions to be handled. SERVPRO avoids these problems by developing targeted strategies for fire damage restoration and thoroughly training all technicians in their proper application.

Varied and Specialized Cleaning Solutions
Different types of fire damage in Ormond Beach require different cleaning products and methods to prevent further damage from occurring. Smoke from one fire may be very different on a chemical level from another and may require a wholly different approach. SERVPRO technicians commonly employ tactics such as emulsifying, bleaching, changing pH, and more to eliminate residues, and all of these processes can change from situation to situation. We take care to evaluate every fire thoroughly to determine the best treatment strategy possible.

Thorough Deodorization
Cleaning away all visual indications of fire damage rarely eliminates the distinctive smell of smoke that pervades most homes following a fire. To eliminate smoke and other odors, we employ a comprehensive deodorization process that utilizes residue-free thermal and chemical fogging technology to eliminate odorous particles embedded deep within the walls and floors of your home.

Specialty Treatments
Most cleaning supplies could not hope to remove smoke and ash from items such as clothing, furniture, and electronics without causing severe damage to them. A full closet of clothing alone can require substantial time investment and multiple cleaning methods. SERVPRO trains to handle many of these situations with the care and unique considerations they require and can bring in specialists to handle items like electronics that need even more advanced care.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach is ready on a 24/7 basis to respond to calls for help following a fire. Contact us at (386) 677-9993.

Water Cleanup Services Removes Spills, Overflows, And Flooding From Your Ormond Beach Property

Water Damage Water Cleanup Services Removes Spills, Overflows, And Flooding From Your Ormond Beach Property When accidents happen inside your Ormond Beach home, one of the worst kinds involve displaced water.

Water Cleanup Services

When accidents happen inside your Ormond Beach home, one of the worst kinds involve displaced water. Floods carry some of the dirtiest water, but toilets and drain that back up can also inundate your home with pathogens and other contamination. Cleaner water still can cause extensive damages, so acting as quickly as possible significantly helps reduce the amount of restoration your home needs after such an incident.

Protecting your Ormond Beach home from exposure to invasive water happens faster when you use professional water cleanup and removal services. SERVPRO technicians can perform all of the work needed quickly and efficiently. We not only have all of the skills necessary to ensure we do an excellent job for you, but we also have the latest equipment necessary for such work.

Extracting visible water does not finish the job entirely – we must also get the affected belongings and materials within your home dried out. SERVPRO's Green Fleet carries our equipment to your home and is also part of some of the equipment we use in restoring your home. Our largest capacity extraction pump is mounted on one of our trucks. We can also generate our own electricity to run the equipment used in your property when power grids are down temporarily.

Air movers help dry things out efficiently because they keep moisture off surfaces and in the air where our desiccant machines can extract it from the air. Creating higher rates of evaporation also works in drying out saturated materials more rapidly than merely allowing them to dry naturally. While we air out your home's interior, enclosed spaces can continue to retain trapped moisture. We push flexible tubes into small holes made in walls so we can then force warm air through them. The air exits out another small hole and takes the moisture with it. The heated air helps evaporate any water left behind after we drain water through tiny holes drilled into the wall near the floor after we remove the baseboards.

These techniques and others work well for any amount of water your home experiences in a disaster. SERVPRO technicians can help get things back to normal inside your residence and make it all “Like it never even happened.” SERVPRO has experience dealing with both large and small emergencies and all categories of water.

Call the professionals at SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 when you need water cleanup and removal services to protect your home. Disasters happen without warning, so we are always available to help you, every day of the year.

Persistent Moisture Can Lead to Mold Growth in Your Ormond Beach Residence

8/5/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Persistent Moisture Can Lead to Mold Growth in Your Ormond Beach Residence Finding mold behind a cabinet or in a corner of your home can be quite disconcerting. Contact SERVPRO for remediation services.

SERVPRO Technicians are Professional in Their Approach of Remediating Mold Damage in Your Home

Flooding situations are a nearly constant threat to the residents of Ormond Beach, even with the steep precautions taken to prevent these disastrous waters from entering homes and properties. Worse still, many homeowners choose cheap and unlicensed assistance to help them clean up the mess after it happens, potentially making matters worse for themselves.

While there are plenty of people who would seek to take advantage of a widespread flood throughout the community, the risk of a scam is smaller scale in what could potentially happen to your home without choosing licensed and accredited professionals to do the work. Often flood damages can quickly turn into mold damages in your Ormond Beach residence due to a lack of adequate restoration work.

It should get stated that scams do exist for communities when they fall victim to flooding or other natural disasters. Con artists seek to prey on those desperate to restore their home. A red flag for this kind of scam would be requesting all or most of the money estimated for the restoration upfront instead of at the completion of the job. SERVPRO, for example, does not ask for the restoration costs upfront from our clients.

Even when they are legitimate enough to do the work, many lack the tools and experience to contend with these damages, allowing for moisture and dampness to persist in areas that they did not or could not check. This persistent moisture can allow mold spores to colonize in as little as three days, which erodes construction materials and poses a continual health risk for the occupants of the house exposed to the colony or its spores. This added development would require professional experience as well, such as our SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians.

Flooding can be a grave situation for your household that you want to restore as quickly as possible. When you add in the possibility of mold or microbial growth from a lack of adequate quality restoration work, you see the importance of choosing professionals to do the job. Give our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach team of technicians a chance to show you the quality and efficiency of our restoration work. Give us a call anytime at (386) 677-9993.

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Restoration Can Return your Ormond Beach Business to Its Days of Glory When Your Ormand Beach Business Has Water on the Floors and the Bottles, Call SERVPRO for Fast Water Removal and Restoration

Ormand Beach Shop Owners Trust SERVPRO to Get Their Enterprises Back Open Fast after a Water Emergency

Whether the cause of commercial water damage is the failure of a sump pump or a burst pipe, one this is certain - you are likely to suffer losses during this stressing time. During this time you need a professional restoration service provider to prevent further damage and salvage your valuable items. It all starts by shutting off the source of the water in your Ormond Beach property and assessing the degree of the damage.

When our SERVPRO technicians are addressing commercial water damage incidents in Ormond Beach, we begin by formulating an action plan. In the plan, we outline all the procedures and equipment to use during the restoration process. All water events are not the same, so, we come up with methods which are relevant to the issue at hand. The goal is to ensure your business operates normally again.
 
We understand there might be affected and unaffected areas in your office or eatery after the water event. Therefore, we set up polyethylene barriers to reduce the potential spread of contaminants from unclean to clean areas. By diminishing the areas needed for drying, we can also cut down on the overall service time. This coordination saves our clients money and possibly stored inventory. For instance, if mold damage has already set in, the spores can quickly move around if the barriers are not in place. When attending to moldy surfaces, we first do the cleaning before disinfecting.
 
Foam cleaning and pressure washing are some of the processes we use when applying cleaners. Foam cleaning as a process helps us to reduce the quantity of the cleaning agent and makes drying easier. Less water for cleaning means less humidity to deal with. The method also allows the cleaner to dwell on the area long enough to kill the bacteria or mold. A combination of scrubbing and foam cleaning can help in eliminating waterborne contaminants.
 
Pressure washing is a method that our SERVPRO technicians use to rinse the residual foam on the floors, wall studs, and areas. It is an efficient and fast method which minimizes the amount of water used when rinsing. To collect the residue that settles after the application of this method, we can use HEPA vacuums.
 
SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach works around the clock to offer storm, mold, fire, and water damage restoration services. Call us at (386) 677-9993 and work with an industry leader in commercial and residential restoration.

Water Leaks and Detection

8/1/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Water Leaks and Detection Dehumidifiers help "pull" moisture out of the air.

Small or big leaks, they all can be big left unattended!  A leak from a hole that is 1/16" in diameter in a water pipe can pour 822 gallons of water a day into your home causing extensive damage! 

With any leak or spill, it’s the water you can’t see that can cause the most damage. In order to find the materials that are wet SERVPRO of North Daytona / Ormond Beach utilizes several different types of Moisture Meters. There are two main types, pin-type and pin less.  Pin-type Moisture Meters measure the resistance between test pins inserted into a piece of wood/building material and use that reading as a proxy for the object’s absolute moisture level. Pin less Moisture Meters rely on the ability of moisture to inductively distort an electric field created by turning on the meter.    But mainly the moisture meters will tell you when something is wet and how wet, so you can find any hidden wet spots in your home.  While the surface may seem dry, the water you don’t see can contain bacteria, cause mold or rot, and cause other unseen damage that must be mitigated immediately.

At SERVPRO of North Daytona/Ormond Beach we have the tools to find where any water is lurking from a water event and can come out and asses the drying needs of both commercial and residential buildings so we can make it "Like it never even happened." visit us at www.SERVPROnorthdaytonabeachormondbeach.com

Mold Doesn't Have To Be Scary

Mold Remediation Mold Doesn't Have To Be Scary Mold seen around this window

Over the recent years, mold seems to be a word that makes people freak out about.  They make you feel like it is everywhere in your home!  There is no more need to freak out but instead become informed.

Mold is naturally occurring in our environment and as the year’s progress our houses have become better sealed up from outside air.  This reduces air exchange with the outside environment and increases the opportunities for mold to amplify if the environment is warm, wet or humid.

Mold on drywall and wood can be dealt with by removing and replacing the affected material and is a great solution as long as the humidity, water leaks and temperature is corrected.  The most important factor with mold remediation is that the area is contained and that there are air scrubbers that can clean the air and remove airborne mold spores.  If the air scrubbers are not used then the removal will allow the mold spores to become airborne, which can be filtered through an HVAC system all through the house.

Mold on tile and tubs can be treated by store purchased Mold Stain removers.  This is only for a small area and these removers should not be used on wood/drywall.

If you watch DIY shows they make you feel like mold is everywhere and out of control!  We hope that a little information goes a long way to calm your mold fears!

SERVPRO of North Daytona/Ormond Beach is a Florida licensed mold remediation company that can help you with your mold issue, for more information visit us at www.SERVPROnorthdaytonabeachormondbeach.com

Deciding To Restore Or Replace Flood Damaged Items In National Gardens Properties

7/12/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Deciding To Restore Or Replace Flood Damaged Items In National Gardens Properties SERVPRO technicians examine the more porous materials inside a home to determine the extent of flood damage.

Deciding To Restore Or Replace Flood Damaged Items

Weather that brings flooding conditions to National Gardens soaks everything in local homes and businesses at one time, leaving very few things unaffected. Even smooth, non-porous items require thorough cleaning with germ-killing agents to make them safe again for occupants to use.

SERVPRO technicians examine the more porous materials inside a National Gardens home to determine the extent of flood damage. Some materials, like carpeting, become so damaged and full of harmful pathogens and chemicals that restoration becomes impossible to do and achieve sanitary conditions. We do not need to pretest materials in these situations to know that we cannot recover such heavily damaged items.

In cases involving such destruction of materials, insurance adjusters often approve payment only for the removal and replacement. Because restorative efforts of any kind cannot bring such horrifically damaged items back to usable, safe condition once again, such efforts only waste resources that SERVPRO puts to better use elsewhere. Because of this, we do not dry out carpets before we remove them from a home with flood damage. Small rugs that can we can immerse in biocidal agents and soak for a while often come out looking much as they did before the flooding event.

During a flood, many items do not become damaged and only need protective measures to keep them from sustaining breakage or soiling during mitigation work. We do our best to protect these items but often recommend homeowners remove them from the premises to ensure their safekeeping.

At times, we need to do more extensive testing, or even partial restoration work to fully determine if we can fully restore specific materials or objects in the home. When we determine, after carrying out some restorative work, that the item's future does not look as promising as we initially expected, we discuss this change in plans with the customer.

Other items fall in the category of indeterminable, and we hold these for inspection and final decision making for the insurance adjuster. Cleaning objects that the adjuster deems unsafe for future use can increase your expenses when the insurance denies either cleaning costs or replacement charges.

Restoring your home to a habitable condition and making it “Like it never even happened.” so your family can return home safely means a lot to us at SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach. Call us at (386) 677-9993 when flood damage makes your home impossible to live in because of safety issues. We are always ready to assist you.

The Impact of Controlled Cleaning During Fire Damage Restoration in Holly Hill

6/20/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage The Impact of Controlled Cleaning During Fire Damage Restoration in Holly Hill If your home is affect by fire damage like this, rely on SERVPRO to help with the remediation process.

Cleaning techniques used by SERVPRO technicians

Fire damage incidents lead to billions of losses in the US, and most of those events are mainly structural fires. If your property is insured, then the adjuster and the insurance agents have to deliver on what the insurance policy outlines. Amid all that, you still need professional restoration services to prevent further damage and determine what is restorable as you come into terms with the traumatic experience. We are going to look at some of the options that residents of Holly Hill have when they face such situations.

Cleaning services are necessary when our SERVPRO technicians are restoring your property after a fire damage incident in Holly Hill. Depending on the surface we are cleaning, we may check on the aggressiveness of the cleaning method and the concentration of the cleaning agent so that your contents do not suffer any unnecessary damage. For instance, some fragile items cannot withstand solvent based cleaning agents and aggressive agitation. Thus, we may use absorbent powders to clean them in a process known as absorption.

To avoid over-wetting some items and reduce the drying time, our SERVPRO technicians may decide to use surface techniques which limit the quantity of the cleaning product that we apply to a surface. Part of the processes we use is foam cleaning together with spray and wipe. It is efficient to spray light amounts of the cleaning product on furniture and other hard-surface materials and then use a dry cleaning garment to wipe. On the other hand, we can use foam cleaning to clean contents that are likely to be damaged after exposure to excessive moisture. We obtain the form by generating it from a cleaning agent.

When we need to control the temperature and quantity of the cleaning agent, we may choose immersion techniques. In this process, we place the items in a machine or tank, and it is also possible to control the cleaning time. An ultrasonic cleaner cleans items by using sound waves that instantaneously emit millions of vapor bubbles and is a form of immersion technique.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach uses advanced cleaning and restoration equipment to attend to water, fire, storm and mold damage incidents. Call us at (386) 677-9993 for a stress-free restoration process that is industry-proven.

Storm Damage Discover What Makes the Difference after Experiencing Flood Damage in Daytona Beach Daytona Stormwater Removal--Just Call SERVPRO, "Like it never even happened."

Professional Storm Damage, Water Removal and Restoration Mitigate Damages--Call SERVPRO for the Right Service

After experiencing flood damage, all you need to do as fast as you can is getting your property clean, dry as well as mold-safe. If you do not act quickly, then there are chances of water causing further damage and reducing chances of salvaging most of your contents. Remember, flood water has contaminants, and it is advisable to call professionals so that you do not end up making avoidable mistakes in your Daytona Beach home.

Most flood damage incidents in Daytona Beach bring forth several hazards. For instance, interrupted electrical circuits can be a danger, and our SERVPRO technicians switch off electrical power when at the site to prevent chances of short-circuiting. Our team can provide portable generators to supply power when required. We also watch-out for sagging ceilings and overly wet walls and perform necessary demolition to make sure the location is safe before the water removal and restoration starts.

Failure to do the cleaning correctly increases the chances of spreading microbial and mold contamination from one surface to another. Our SERVPRO technicians understand that using the same cloths to wipe moldy and very dirty items can spread dirt around the building. To prevent that, we perform an inspection and come up with a cleaning procedure that provides a unique solution to different areas with varying levels of contamination. Crew members can move cleaned items to a temporary location where we can store them until the flooded structure is entirely cleaned and dried.

After a flooding event, there is a risk of significant moisture penetrating into higher ceilings and walls. Apart from compromising the quality of your items, the moisture can create fitting conditions for mold growth. After doing an inspection, our SERVPRO technicians remove sagging ceilings and wet insulations. We then use axial fans and heaters to speed the drying process in conjunction with dehumidifiers. After that, we can apply a fungicidal sealant on exposed wood framing, ceiling and wall cavities and floor surfaces to help prevent chances of future mold growth.

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach is Faster To Any Size Disaster, and we are a trusted leader in flood damage restoration. Call us at (386) 677-9993 when you need tested and proved cleaning and restoration services.

Holly Hill's Fire Damage Experts Explain Cleaning Different Types of Items

Fire Damage Holly Hill's Fire Damage Experts Explain Cleaning Different Types of Items Don't Monkey Around with Fire & Smoke Damage and Odors in Your Holly Hill Home--Contact SERVPRO for Restoration

SERVPRO's Technicians Can Clean and Restore Most Smoke Damaged Items and Materials in Holly Hill

Whenever a fire starts on a property in Holly Hill, many things such as structural building materials and your possessions become susceptible to damage. No matter where the fire starts on your property the blaze can quickly spread to areas that put building materials and contents at risk. The flames and heat created by the blaze can cause issues but the smoke coming from it can damage things as well.

Whenever anything burns materials combust which is the act of a substance changing from a solid state to a gaseous state using heat. During just about every fire damage in Holly Hill, not all particles combust entirely creating smoke and additional problems. Smoke can travel throughout a building and leave behind burnt scents and soot residues.

During any mitigation project, our SERVPRO technicians inspect the building to see which areas were impacted by smoke. Once the scope of the project is determined, we begin by removing any materials or contents that are severely burnt or charred. Next, we work towards cleaning any materials or contents that received soot damage.

The cleanability of soot residues varies based on what types of fuels burned and other conditions relating to the fire. Our SERVPRO technicians use a variety of methods to remove soot from different materials. Porous materials are cleaned best using dry methods so that moisture does not soak soot residues deep into the items. Non-porous materials can be cleaned well with wet methods because they repel moisture.

Some items that get affected by soot residues such as electronics require special attention. Our SERVPRO restoration crew takes prompt action when cleaning electronic items so that damage is kept to a minimum. Some residues can eat away and corrode metal components causing electronic failure in the device.
If the interior of electronic items contains soot, then it must be cleaned by a qualified electronics technician. Our crew can clean the metal exterior of the items with specialized chemicals. We are also able to clean the rubber parts on the items with oil to prevent corrosion.

Many expensive items can get damaged by smoke and malfunction in the future if not treated immediately. If you ever need help cleaning soot from materials affected by smoke, call SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 24 hours a day.

Mold Remediation Removing The Lingering Odor From Mold Growth In Your Ormond Beach House SERVPRO Breaks the Mold Life Cycle During Remediation in Ormand Beach Properties

Remediation Measures to Grapple with Mold include Odor Control--Call SERVPRO for Expert Help

No homeowner gets prepared to discover mold in their Ormond Beach home. With the high relative humidity throughout the better part of the year in the area, this is a constant threat to those who do not treat and condition the air inside their homes and in some cases, to those who do as well.

While there might be multiple mold damages your Ormond Beach could experience from widespread colonization, one of the most significant hurdles that homeowners find they have to overcome is the bold scent that comes along with the presence of microbial growth. It often gets described as a harsh musty odor that is challenging to live around, so that is why it is a priority of our SERVPRO technicians to take care of this lingering effect from your home during the remediation process.

From the moment that our team arrives at your home, we work quickly to set up the appropriate preventative measures to prohibit the spread of the colony elsewhere. While removal is underway, dehumidification equipment works to resolve the moisture and dampness which fed the spores and allowed them to seat in the first place.

Once nearly all of the components of remediation have finished, our SERVPRO technicians are ready to take on the lingering foul odor that makes comfortable living challenging for you and your family. The process typically utilizes extensive cleaning of the affected areas and then the use of a thermal fogging machine. The equipment releases a chemical compound that can break odor molecules apart on contact and neutralize them. This process is safe for open areas as well as fabrics, carpets, and furniture in your home.

Now that you can appreciate the kind of resolve that our technicians have with something as fundamental as a lingering odor, you can see how this same dedication is present in every facet of our remediation efforts. You can trust our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach mold remediation technicians to help you overcome every effect from this unfortunate occurrence and restore your home to its former condition. "Like it never even happened." Give us a call anytime at (386) 677-9993.

After Flood Damage, Recovery Services Get Homes back in Safe, Livable Condition in National Gardens

Storm Damage After Flood Damage, Recovery Services Get Homes back in Safe, Livable Condition in National Gardens National Gardens Homeowners Rely on SERVPRO for Water Extraction after Flooding

SERVPRO Can Dry Your National Gardens Home after Flooding

Flooding in National Gardens poses several problems to property owners. Accompanying the water, dirt, chemicals, microbes, pathogens, lawn debris, and garbage also wash into and around a flooded home. All of these components of floodwater can create long-lasting risks inside a home, with microorganisms being one of the more severe perils.
 
Residents living in National Gardens who need rapid flood damage recovery should wait until they know their home's interior poses no risks from electrical wiring or gas lines. Before the water line recedes, debris, including broken items, can stay out of sight, posing hazards of punctures and cuts. Broken skin can allow pathogens to enter your body and cause severe health problems. To prevent this from happening while we work on a flooded home, SERVPRO technicians wear complete personal protective equipment (PPE).
 
Other equipment designed to restore a flood-damaged home hastens the recovery process. The extraction of standing water on the floors can be done while removing soggy carpets and underlying padding eliminating a sizable amount of the water. Removing this water from your home's floors helps keep the amount of humidity in the air more manageable. Cleaning with antimicrobial agents later on during the sanitizing portion of the process helps to eliminate microorganisms from flourishing.

As we cut away the lower portion of walls exposed to floodwater, known in the industry as a "flood-cut," we cut in straight lines so replacement work can happen more smoothly and efficiently. Doing so further reduces wasted materials. Once we restore normal levels of humidity inside your home, your rebuild contractor can bring replacement materials inside. After installation, painting of these newly restored walls can finish the look desired. We want your entire home to "Look like it never even happened."
 
Restoring things in your home broken by the forceful flood through either repairing or replacing the items helps put things back the way your family remembers. Bringing humidity levels back down to standard amounts helps protect your family from possible respiratory illnesses and microbial growth that can create other problems.
 
SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach can help your family with fast and efficient flood damage recovery services. Serving the Ormund area and Holly Hill, we are close by and able to respond whenever you need us, day or night, year-round. Our local service line puts you in touch with us directly, so do not hesitate to call (386) 677-9993 for any disaster involving your home.

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Experts In Daytona Explain Drying Methods SERVPRO Also Use Industry-Leading Equipment for Storm Damage Cleanup in Daytona

SERVPRO Works Hard to Mitigate Storm Damage to Your Place of Business

If your office complex in Daytona has multiple floors, problems like pipes breaking in other parts of the building could cause damage to your business as well. When water flows into your office from the ceiling, many problems can result. Moisture can cause ceiling tiles or drywall to become weak and fall onto the floor.
 
Water coming from the ceiling starts there and then spreads down the walls. Many commercial water damage projects in Daytona involve removing moisture from ceilings, walls, contents, and flooring. Any time moisture stays inside a building more things get ruined, and foul odors develop as time passes.
 
The goal when SERVPRO works on any restoration project is to get all of the moisture out of the structure most quickly and efficiently. When working with businesses measures are taken not to hinder your routines. Depending on what happened, procedures can get changed so that you maintain your standard flow of revenue or activity.
 
In the cases where water invades your office from a floor above any water that is found on furniture or carpeting is removed with extraction equipment, a simple mop, and bucket or maybe just cloths and sponges. Our restoration technicians may be able to complete water extraction around your employee's cubicles and desks while they keep working and maintaining ordinary business procedures. After the extraction stage, the next step is to dry out moisture that cannot necessarily be seen.
 
Our technicians, beyond visual inspections, use monitoring devices to determine which materials in the office got wet. Once the location of the damaged areas is determined, air- moving and dehumidification systems get placed around the affected area. Our crew can position the drying tools around work areas inside your company's office, so disruptions are kept to the minimum.
 
The correct placement of this equipment is vital to speedy drying. Air movers are set up so that they blow air in a counterclockwise motion hitting all of the walls at a 45-degree angle. Air movers get placed against walls pointed upwards to dry out ceiling tiles. When moisture levels are higher than usual in the wall materials, the baseboard gets removed, and holes are drilled into the wall so that air can flow into the wall cavity and dry out the studs, any present insulation, and drywall cardboard backing.
 
Drying out moisture damaged materials inside an office complex can be more difficult than other buildings. Calling SERVPRO of Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 can save your business time and money.

When Fire Strikes

4/23/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage When Fire Strikes Kitchen fires are among the most common type of fire we deal with.

Fire damage can strike at a moment’s notice, a property owner can be looking at immense clean up even if the physical damage may be minor such as a kitchen fire that is relatively small. A fire on the kitchen stove can leave behind a black greasy soot, char, odors and staining or a yellow fatty substance. When it comes to fire damages the material that consumed leaves behind its own distinctive residue when food or protein is consumed in a fire it will leave behind pungent odor along with a sticky residue. When plastics are involved the residue left behind will be a heavy thick black greasy residue that smears when touched, every fire damage presents its own challenge. The soot left behind will have an acidic content level high enough that left uncleaned can ruin items that could have been saved, For heavy soot situations a pre-cleaning with an alkaline based cleaning solution to neutralize the acid may be needed, odors are another aspect of a fire damage that may need to be addressed.

At SERVPRO North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach we have many tools at our disposal for odor control, these range from air scrubbers for removing particulates, thermal foggers for deodorization, ozone machines, titanium dioxide machines, HEPA vacuums for trapping large soot particulates. Other special services for more severe fires that may also be needed. We can provide wrapping and packing, moving and storage, specialty textile cleaning along with art restoration. At SERVPRO North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach 386-677-9993 our technicians are trained to handle the most difficult cleaning jobs.

The Effects Of Storm Surge

4/18/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage The Effects Of Storm Surge This building suffered from over 2ft of storm surge. All flooring plus anything touching the ground had to be removed and disposed of.

One type of storm damage that SERVPRO North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach have dealt with in the past thirty years of service has been storm surge or flooding from rising water. The affects from storm surge or flooding can be devastating to say the least. The water that comes in your home or business from storm surge is classified as a Category 3. There are 3 types of water categories in the restoration industry.

  • Category 1 - Water originates from a sanitary water source and does not pose a substantial risk from dermal, ingestion or inhalation exposure. Examples of category 1 water sources can include, but are not limited to: Broken supply lines, tub or sink overflows with no contaminates, appliance malfunctions, melting ice, broken toilet tanks.
  • Category 2 - Water contains significant contaminates and has the potential to cause discomfort or sickness if contacted or consumed by humans. Category 2 water can contain potentially unsafe levels of unsafe microorganisms or nutrients. Examples of category 2 water are but not limited to: Broken aquariums, waterbeds, water from the toilet bowl, discharge from dishwashers, washing machines.
  • Category 3 - Water is grossly contaminated and can contain pathogenic, toxins or other harmful agents. Examples of Category 3 water sources can include but not limited to: Sewage, all forms of flooding from seawater, ground surface water, rising water from rivers or streams; such water sources may contain silt, organic matter, pesticides and heavy metals.

If your home or business is affected by storm surge or rising water do not attempt the water removal or the water damage cleanup yourself as this may be exposing yourself to contaminates that can be harmful. Contacting a professional like SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach for these services is the safest course of action. 

Why Controlling Indoor Humidity Is Important

4/17/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Why Controlling Indoor Humidity Is Important Don't delay after you've had a water damage, mold growth can start in as little as 72hrs.

Controlling indoor humidity is import for several different reasons, in East Central Florida for example where SERVPRO North Daytona Beach/Ormond Beach is located where the outdoor humidity is one of highest naturally in the U.S. Making the use of air conditioning critical for controlling the indoor humidity. When controlling the indoor humidity 60% RH (relative humidity) is the threshold, above 60% RH can result in mold amplification which in turn can lead to mold damage or as some people refer to it as “black toxic mold". Controlling the indoor humidity can be especially important if a structure has been affected by water damage or fire damage in the water damage situation after the water removal has been completed, the next step would be to get the indoor humidity down below 60%. Usually this is done by using commercial dehumidifiers to remove the moisture from the air thus reducing the humidity. When a building is affected by fire there may be excessive moisture and elevated humidity in the structure from extinguishing the fire and may consist of water damage cleanup as well as fire damage clean up.

When excessive humidity or water damage is not addressed in a timely and proper fashion a building can sustain additional damage by causing warping, swelling or cracking. When a structure becomes wet and the evaporation process starts the humidity increases and secondary damage will result from the migration of the moisture from the affected materials to the unaffected materials until equilibrium is achieved. When this occurs the repair process will become more extensive resulting in unneeded repairs and possibly dangerous for these reasons it’s a good idea to call an expert like SERVPRO North Daytona Beach/ Ormond Beach for assistance when dealing with water damage, fire damage and mold removal you can learn more from.http://www.IICRC.org/ https://www.epa.gov/mold

Mold Remediation of Contents

Mold Remediation Mold Remediation of Contents Condition 3 contents

Mold remediation porous and nonporous contents.

When contents are affected by microbial contamination there are a few questions to ask before deciding to proceed with the remediation project what is the level of contamination? Is the contents porous or nonporous? There are 3 levels of contamination and There 2 main types of contents

Conditions

Condition 1 is when normal atmospheric conditions are present and mold spore count and type are at normal levels. Normal levels can vary depending on the climate for any particular region

Condition 2 is when abnormal atmospheric conditions are present and mold spore count have been amplified and the  types of spores that are not normally present are now present and spore settelation has begun

Condition 3 is when colonization is present (actively growing on surface) extreme spore count in atmosphere

Contents types

Porous    porous materials have a low permeance factor,( permeance is the measure of the degree to which a material allows fluid to permeate it). Porous contents in a condition 2 environment maybe difficult to remediate but not impossible for clothing and linens follow the manufactures cleaning instructions. Upholstered contents must be inspected thoroughly and then cleaned according to the manufactures instructions incorporating hepa vacuuming before and after the cleaning process. Porous contents in a condition 3 environment are not a good choice for remediation before considering remediation of porous contents in condition it would be a good idea to consult with an indoor environmentalist https://www.IICRC.org/standards/IICRC-s520

Non porous non porous materials have a high permeance factor.non porous contents in a condition 2 environment can be cleaned using a disinfectant product such as benefect or other cleaning solutions along with hepa vacuuming before and after cleaning. Non porous items in a condition 3 environment require micro cleaning of every surface in and out and may need to be cleaned several times along with hepa vacuuming for complete remediation   https://www.epa.gov/mold 

Water Damage Drying Equipment

Water Damage Water Damage Drying Equipment Water damage equipment drying walls, ceiling and hardwood floors.

During Water Restoration it is very important to set up Drying Equipment right away.  Drying involves the Removal of Water.  The Drying Equipment Lowers the Humidity and Traps the Moisture in the Air.  Any standing water should be extracted prior to any Drying Equipment placement. 

In order to dry certain materials you must prepare to remove moisture from the air.  Setting up a Drying Chamber around the affected Area will contain the moisture in the air.  Drying Equipment is placed within the Drying Chamber to Heat Up and Extract that moisture from the air and materials. All the Equipment work hand in hand together.

Drying Equipment is placed to dry Carpets, Drywall, Wood and Framing.  Specialty Drying Equipment can also be placed to tackle unique drying challenges.  Especially when you are attempting to dry certain materials like Hardwood Floors, Tile, Inside Walls or Under Cabinets.  The correct type equipment and amount of equipment are critical for a balanced drying system the air movers pushing air over the materials create the evaporation of water from the materials to be dried once this has happened the dehumidifiers can then remove the water from the air that has been evaporated from the wet materials if there is not enough air movers then the evaporation slows down and there is not enough water in the air for the  dehumidifiers if there are to many air movers creating to much evaporation and not enough dehumidification then the building sweat and not drying rapidly this is why a balanced drying system is important for water damage restoration to be successful at SERVPRO north Daytona/ Ormond beach we have trained technicians that can accomplish this for rapid drying in most water damage situations

Commercial Water Damage Techniques in Daytona Beach Explained

3/28/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Techniques in Daytona Beach Explained Water damage affects building materials differently. Contact SERVPRO if your office or other property has a water damage incident.

SERVPRO Technicians Follow Proper Methods When Drying Out Your Business After an Event

If a pipe breaks on the second floor of your Daytona Beach office building, materials and contents possibly get ruined. Water always follows gravity so if there is a problem on the second floor it is likely that damage occurs on the first floor as well. When water leaks down from the second floor, the damage on the first floor starts from the ceiling down.
 
Many commercial buildings have different building materials and designs than residential homes. SERVPRO's commercial water damage technicians in Daytona Beach have experience in dealing with different types of architecture and materials found in commercial properties. We always use different techniques based on your specific situation.
 
Many commercial buildings such as your office complex contain cinder block walls defining its structure. In cases of water damage, the gaps inside the cinder blocks possibly fill up with water. To adequately dry a structure, the moisture inside the cinder blocks has to get removed.
 
Sometimes standard drying procedures do the job of removing cinder block moisture. During most dry-out procedures, air movers and dehumidifiers get set up inside the structure to create the ideal environment for structural drying. The air movers push air in a circular motion so that the air hits all of the walls of your office at a 45-degree angle. The dehumidifiers work by pulling moisture out of the air and exhausting hot, dry air in its place.
 
However, if the cinder blocks have paint on their inside surface, then drying is more difficult. Paint works as a vapor barrier and traps moisture inside the cinder blocks. Many times holes get drilled into the mortar towards the bottom of the wall, draining all of the water out. Sometimes bigger holes get drilled so that air flows better into the walls.
 
If the walls got submerged by water for a long time, then a more considerable amount of bigger holes get drilled to increase air circulation within the cinder blocks. The drying equipment then stays in the area until moisture levels return to what they were before the loss in your office building occurred. After the drying process gets completed, the holes in the cinder block walls get patched and painted over.
 
Anytime we work with commercial properties we design our project plan so that our work does not negatively affect your business operations. For professional help after a problem takes place at your company's office, call SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 any time of the day.

Fighting The Possibility Of Flood Damage To Your Daytona Home

3/20/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Fighting The Possibility Of Flood Damage To Your Daytona Home Flooding can cause significant damage to your property.

Flood Damage To Your Home

Daytona residents are not unfamiliar with turbulent conditions and adverse weather patterns. With little warning, storms happening far out in the Atlantic can shift and head for the coastline, raining several inches worth of water from the skies in a matter of hours. With unexpected storms with high volumes of rainfall happening over a short period, homeowners in the area should be mindful of the possibility of flash flooding and general flooding conditions.

Chances are, your Daytona home has gotten somewhat safeguarded against flood damage given its proximity to the coast. Unfortunately, as these precautionary measures age, their effectiveness wanes as well. While upkeep of these safeguards is always a smart choice, your home may never get completely protected against the worst possible storm damage situations.

Our SERVPRO team gets equipped to deal with all sizes of flood disasters, and so our training and experience prepare each technician with the latest restoration techniques to bring your home back to preloss conditions as efficiently as possible. With flooding, the threat of compounding damage like structural weakness or mold growth become a significant possibility, so professional restoration services help to ensure that conditions do not get worse.

From the moment that our SERVPRO professionals arrive at your home, we begin our assessment of the full scope of the damage that is visible. Extraction is a priority, as this pulls the bulk of the damaging water from the affected area and helps to expedite later processes like drying and dehumidification. Thermal imagery gets used to inspect areas that cannot get seen with the naked eye, ensuring that further drying is not a requirement. If water is visible inside of the walls and underneath the flooring, drying mats and injectidry systems get used to finish the job.

While flooding might be something that you have always been mindful of preventing, sometimes the plan in place is not enough to stop a natural disaster from impacting your home. Trust our experienced professionals at SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach to help you tidy up the mess and get your house back to the way it used to be. We are available anytime by calling (386) 677-9993.

Ormond Beach Mold Testing and Remediation

2/26/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Ormond Beach Mold Testing and Remediation Ormand Beach Home Needs Mold Remediation

SERVPRO Suggests to Be Aware of Fraudulent Activities Regarding Mold Discovery and Remediation.

Our beautiful Florida weather attracts tourists and new residents every year, but the high humidity also makes mold infestations and subsequent damage almost routine for Ormond Beach and across the state. It also once provided an opportunity for some businesses to take advantage of this situation to defraud customers.

It became such an issue; the Florida Legislature passed new regulations for testing and remediation in 2010. These rules require that each company licensed to perform an assessment or mold test including in Ormand Beach cannot be licensed to perform mold remediation. The rules were changed to stop unscrupulous business owners from performing an assessment that always led to a mold discovery. These owners then used their false results to pressure the homeowners into starting work that day to the needless cost of thousands of dollars.
 
Since a mold assessor cannot also be a mold remediation specialist, SERVPRO does not perform a mold test in Ormond Beach or anywhere else. We also do not recommend an agency to test your home. The law states that "The company who performs the inspection and testing should be independent of any other interest.  That means the remediation or reconstruction." For us, that makes it a clear conflict of interest prohibited by the Florida Legislature. SERVPRO proudly avoids "Double-Dipping" as we serve our customers and neighbors.
 
SERVPRO strictly follows the definition of mold remediation as determined by the state and limits our activities to "the removal, cleaning, sanitizing demolition, or other treatment. This does include preventive activities which means mold or mold-contaminated matter of greater than 10 square feet that was not purposely grown at that location".
 
Feel you may have a mold problem? then find and contact a licensed assessor to perform a mold test. Always ask for the license number and verify it before allowing someone into your home to perform the assessment. The Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation website provides a list of every company or individual with this permit.
 
If you receive a positive assessment result or can already see mold growing in your home, call SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach offices today at (386) 677-9993. We have over twenty experience removing mold and remediating the effects in area homes and can do the same for you.

Fire Damage In Your Daytona Home From Overloaded Circuits

2/19/2018 (Permalink)

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.

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Detracts from the Vehicles' Perceived Value in Your Daytona Showroom Water damage to your showroom can take away from the vehicles you are trying to sell, call SERVPRO to remediate the damage.

Rely on SERVPRO for Professional and Efficient Water Damage Restoration Services

Selling cars in today's market depends on many factors including the qualifications of potential buyers in Daytona. 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. Responsible for a significant portion of mold colonies, elevated humidity allows many types of secondary water damage to continue.

Repainting surfaces that show decay can revitalize a building, but other problems caused by water can also afflict your business. One of these problems centers around the odor of your indoor environment. Our technicians carry certificates from the IICRC in Commercial Drying (CDS) and Odor Control (OCT), allowing us to combine the latest techniques and methods with our extensive skills and experience. Odors develop in an enclosed setting, regardless of the cleanliness of the invading water.

While our technicians pull out unusable materials, our other specialists can freshen up the air. People love that new car smell, but a musty odor from water damage can ruin that experience for anyone. SERVPRO can put a stop to odors from water damage for you and restore your showroom “Like it never even happened.”

Storm Damage What to Do After Flood Damage to Your Daytona Beach Property It is important to contact SERVPRO as soon as possible after your home experiences flood damage.

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

12/4/2017 (Permalink)

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.

Removing Commercial Water Damage in Daytona Restaurants

Commercial Removing Commercial Water Damage in Daytona Restaurants Daytona Restaurants on the Beach Sometimes Need Water Removal and Restoration from SERVPRO

SERVPRO Strives to Keep Businesses Up and Running After Water Intrusions or Mishaps

Recovering from a hurricane or a much smaller internal leak from a dripping water line can mean the difference between a successful restaurant and a failing one. In Daytona, a large part of post-hurricane recovery centers on how well our local businesses fare. Restaurants and their viability remain a powerful indicator of the progress a community makes.

Daytona restaurants stagnating because of commercial water damage can bounce back much faster with the removal of the damage via professional restoration. This is crucial for any business, but it becomes even more critical when many other area restaurants suffer similarly.  

Our water damage restoration professionals are always ready to help get our local restaurants in the condition that you and your customers expect. Because a dining experience is more than the physical environment, but also the ambient experience, how your restaurant smells can seriously affect your patrons' dining experience. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) is certified by the IICRC and can ensure that musty smells from water contamination become a thing of the past. Another problem with water that can affect how your restaurant smells is mold damage. We can also solve this problem for your business through proper remediation.

When water damage stems from outside water such as hurricanes or flooding, health code regulations require the disposal of all foodstuffs. As we dispose of each item, we can list it on an inventory sheet so repurchasing and restocking, as well as making insurance claims, becomes easier for you and your staff.

Our technicians understand that there are various inspections your restaurant must pass before reopening, and we can help you attain these. Whenever you have any concerns about how our work can help you and your business, just let us know. We are always happy to discuss your concerns and work with you to find a solution.  

The pros at SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach can be contacted by calling (386) 677-9993, any day of the year and at any hour. Call us for assistance with restoring your restaurant after water damage threatens to close your doors for good.

Hurricane Irma Damage to Both Exterior and Interior Areas of Your Daytona Beach Property

10/23/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Hurricane Irma Damage to Both Exterior and Interior Areas of Your Daytona Beach Property SERVPRO Helps Rebuild and Restore After Hurricanes Like Irma and Tropical Storms in the Greater Daytona Area

Fast SERVPRO Response Reduces Hurricane Damage and Clean Up Time


Daytona Beach always seems different after a storm, cleaner and fresher than before, but with a hurricane, the effect can startle residents horribly, instead. Hurricanes can produce winds so powerful that siding blows off homes and businesses, structures collapse, and properties become partially submerged.

Residents in Daytona Beach whose property sustained hurricane damage should begin restoration work immediately. Damage cannot undo itself, of course, and existing damage can only become worse. Protecting your home from further damage remains the best way to keep overall restoration costs reasonable while minimizing the time involved. SERVPRO professionals want to help your family or business recover by handling the work your property requires.

Exterior areas can experience heavy pollution from debris, including bent and twisted metal structures from your property and that of your neighbors. Before we remove these items, we take care to make a note of any displaced or fallen power lines. We bring our own power source, portable and if needed trailer towed generators, in case of power outages in your area.

SERVPRO professionals can often save substantial portions of torn-off siding and gutters by salvaging undamaged materials and reinstalling them. Your roof may also show signs of damage, and we can repair or partner to have them repaired, as well. Cleaning up yards and outbuildings helps restore your property's look to its pre-hurricane state. These steps all play a crucial role in protecting your children and pets from coming across hazards while playing outside.

Interior areas of your property with damage from Irma or Nate need restoration and replacement professionals, also. We provide extensive services that mitigate all types of damage left behind after the worst storms and hurricanes. Our teams begin by extracting water and restoring your home's interior humidity to normal. Removing any salt residue or silt, along with the pathogens in that silt, plus vigorous cleaning of all surfaces and restoration of upholstered furniture pieces can help make your home feel like it used to once again.

To make sure the restoration of your home or business meets your expectations, call your local restoration experts, SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at our local number, (386) 677-9993. We are always available to take your call and answer your questions or concerns.

Remediating Everyday Water Damage in Daytona

10/22/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage Remediating Everyday Water Damage in Daytona Experience has shown us that a quick response to your water damage emergency results in the most successful outcome. Call SERVPRO right away.

Our Technicians are Very Responsive to Your Water Overflow Emergency to Prevent Secondary Damages From Forming

Although they get most of the press, big storms are responsible for far fewer water damage events than slow leaks and appliance malfunctions. You can survive the hurricane season with nary an issue, then wake up to inches of water because the dishwasher overflowed overnight. Either way, you need our help.
 
We offer our best technicians and most efficient equipment to solve your Daytona water damage woes regardless of their source. The first step is to call for help fast, because water damage gets progressively worse the longer you wait to fix it. The wooden floor in your kitchen, for example, bounces back after professional water extraction and an afternoon of drying with air movers and a drying mat if we start our work within hours of the overflow. Hardwoods are naturally resistant to brief soakings.
 
If you wait for a few days thinking you can manage on your own, it is likely you begin to see evidence of permanent water damage. The individual planks swell with water that saturates the sub-floor, pushing up the center of each plank or “crowning.” Alternatively, the planks pull apart, curling up at the edges or “cupping.” Because the water was not eradicated, you now have a situation where some flooring may need to be removed and new sections laid to keep a surfaces level.
 
SERVPRO technicians avoid this type of water damage by using tools like floor drying mats or positioning air movers and dehumidifiers to pull the moisture out of the wood fibers. We might pull up a few planks to allow air to circulate under the wood and to dry the subfloor. Sometimes we drill small holes in a finished floor to urge evaporation.
 
Leaving even a bit of moisture risks exposing your home to mold damage. The moisture is the accelerant to one or more microscopic mold spores. Spores are always in the air or lying on surfaces, causing little trouble as long as they stay dry. Once they are activated by water, they multiply rapidly. If the water soaking the floor is rich in nutrients, like the dishwater, the mold may grow faster. Ordinary items can cause extraordinary damage. SERVPRO mold remediation teams contain and remove colonies, but to avoid more microbial infestations, the water damage must be eliminated more quickly.
 
Respond immediately to spills and overflows with the help of SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach. Do not let a simple accident become a catastrophe by calling (386) 677-9993.

Keeping Replacement to a Minimum for Fire Damage in Daytona

10/2/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Keeping Replacement to a Minimum for Fire Damage in Daytona Daytona Grapples with Smoke & Fire Damage with the Aid of SERVPRO

SERVPRO Works with Customers and Insurance Carriers for Fire Damaging Restoration

Some auditors, inspectors, and even insurers may recommend replacement and reconstruction as the default method to recover from fire damage. However, replacement often ends up becoming a costly endeavor, and may only allow your insurance company to save money while your expenses skyrocket. SERVPRO uses a strategy of mitigation and restoration as our primary approach to fire damage in Daytona, as these strategies are both the lest expensive and time-intensive strategies for righting your home after a fire.
 
Replacement typically entails paying full price for anything lost in the fire or downgrading to lesser variants to keep costs in check. Insurance companies may sometimes recommend replacing an entire inventory as, depending on your specific plan and contract, it may mean less financial contribution from them. Most homeowners in Daytona facing damaging fire issues find themselves unable to afford both reconstruction costs and the market price of everything lost in the fire, and end up buying inadequate replacements.

Restoration is less expensive than replacement, even if you downgrade, and allows you to salvage the exact items and functionality you had before the fire. Although not everything damaged in a fire is restorable, we evaluate every item manually to determine if a certified contractor or we can recover that specific item within a reasonable price range.
 
This policy is not limited to just belongings, and in fact extends to flooring, wallpaper, paint jobs, and anything else in your home. We attempt to restore everything we can with cost-effective means before beginning reconstruction efforts, which can be lengthy and costly. Our strategy of mitigation also helps to save many elements of your home from reconstruction and replacement. Simple actions such as water extraction, boarding, tarping, and site preparation can lead to significant savings as restorations get underway. Be sure to call SERVPRO as soon as possible after a fire so that our mitigation efforts can be at their most effective.
 
SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach is available 24/7 for victims of fires and other types of damage. If you require our services in the aftermath of a fire or would like to know more about what we do, call us at (386) 677-9993.

SERVPRO Responds and Mitigates Damage After Storms in the Daytona Area

After you have experienced a frightening disaster such as a hurricane in Daytona, you may not be sure what to do next. If your home has been flooded by the super storm, it can be even more daunting and troublesome. Where do you begin with cleanup and getting your life back together? What do you do for power?

Answers to Questions Regarding Mold Damage in Your Daytona Beach Home

Mold Remediation Answers to Questions Regarding Mold Damage in Your Daytona Beach Home When you find mold in your home, your best bet is to call the certified technicians at SERVPRO to investigate the cause and remediate the damage.

Professional SERVPRO Technicians Investigate to Find the Cause of Mold Before Starting the Remediation Process

Questions about mold and how to treat growth found on your Daytona Beach property scatter the internet. Some articles try to scare you by emphasizing black or white mold and possible effects while throwing around terms like remove and eliminate that confuse the situation.  

SERVPRO technicians would like to help our customers avoid mold damage in Daytona Beach altogether. However, if you find yourselves experiencing this problem, the least we can do is help prevent you from falling prey to many sources of information that prompt homeowners to seek unnecessary services.  

Using this forum, we can help you understand more about mold and provide you with the answers you need to make sound decisions. Let’s tackle each question together.

What do you do if you find mold growth in your home? (Or think you might have it.)
You might want to try cleaning the area yourself, just keep in mind that by the time you can visually see mold, there is often a larger problem lying somewhere underneath. No matter how much you scrub the small area that you can see, it can keep coming back. The household products available at your local store only do part of the job, they are not a full solution.

You might also find mold home test kits that prompt you to take a sample from visible growth and mail it to a lab to discover which type of mold you have. These tests involve wasting time and money to discover useless information. They make you waste 7 to 10-days for the results giving mold an opportunity to dig in further, causing additional damages.

What is Mold Mitigation or Remediation?
Mitigation means to reduce the severity of a problem while remediation means reversing or stopping environmental damage occurring in your home. If done correctly, technicians use physical methods to remove contaminated materials from your home. Everything unrestorable requires specific handling, transport, and disposal to protect our surrounding environment. SERVPRO uses proven containment methods to control growth in your home and prevents further spread.

Regardless of the type or amount of mold you may find on your property, professional services are your best chance for a successful recovery. If you live in the Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach areas, Contact SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach, today. (386) 677-9993

Restoring Your Home with Water Removal Services in Daytona Beach

Water Damage Restoring Your Home with Water Removal Services in Daytona Beach Water Removal in Daytona Beach Is Speedily Done by SERVPRO

Many Factors Need Addressing for a Thorough Water Remediation Service

Standing water inside your Daytona Beach home because of broken water lines is a waking nightmare no homeowner wants. The more time between the break and its discovery adds to the mess created, as more and more water accumulates inside your home's walls. Of course, shutting off the water at the main valve is the first step, but restoring your home only starts there.
 
Homes in Daytona Beach are typically well-kept, but only a professional water removal team like SERVPRO can keep water from broken plumbing lines from destroying your home. We have all of the equipment needed to carry out even the worst case scenarios.
 
Measuring the amount of moisture in a home is important because removal must include more than the standing water alone. Reduction to normal readings of moisture in the air must always occur to prevent future damage, and our equipment enables us to do this task accurately. We know that many people are familiar with the large pump trucks used in water removal, but smaller-sized pieces of equipment also play a crucial role.
 
It is challenging to restore a water-saturated home with standing water and elevated levels of moisture without using dehumidifiers, large air blowers, heating pads for soaked flooring, and air scrubbers that clean the air of microbes. Each of these items plays a vital role in our work, and we ensure that all members of our teams have the IICRC certifications required to meet our high standards of customer satisfaction.
 
Moisture meters are also part of our equipment, revealing to us how high humidity levels are. Dehumidification strips the water from the air, but in homes that have had water problems, odors can remain behind. Our odor specialist can ensure that your home smells perfect after restoration is complete. Using machines that generate hydroxyl, a safe gas for use around carpets, pets, and even people, your home will soon smell like it should. For persistent odors, there are other methods that we can put to use for you. 

SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach is here to help you by restoring your home. Water removal is much easier with the proper tools, equipment, and training than just allowing things to dry out on their own. Call us day or night, any day of the year, at (386) 677-9993, and we can restore your home in Ormand Beach or Daytona Beach, no matter how severe the catastrophe.

Have A Flood Damage Plan During Hurricane Season

Storm Damage Have A Flood Damage Plan During Hurricane Season Storm Waters Can Be Polluted, Call SERVPRO for Cleanup to Your Daytona Home

SERVPRO Is There to Help During Flooding Emergencies

Hurricane season, in theory, runs from June through late November. The dates involved are not as important as the response you seek for damage done to your home after the storm. SERVPRO crews train for these situations and are ready to implement a post-storm plan that works to return your home to preloss condition.
 
The heavy winds, torrential rains, and storm surge that mark summer and fall storms can inflict serious flood damage to your Daytona Beach home. You need a series of integrated steps to eradicate the water, dry out the structure, and put things back in place after the cleanup and drying out completed. Our experienced water removal and restoration staff are familiar with your struggles and have proven strategies to move from overwhelmed with flood water to “Like it never even happened.”
 
Flood water linked to storm activity has a high risk of contamination. You are attacked from both backed up storm sewers and salt and rain water that flowed across and through a wide range of dangerous substances before it found your home. Human waste, fertilizers, animal carcasses and waste, automotive residues from streets and parking lots, and more are just some of the unhealthy things you may find floating in your lower levels. Our fast and professional response helps manage the threats this gray or black water poses.
 
SERVPRO uses truck mounted pumps and water extractors to clear the standing water. The contaminated nature of the mixture removed requires special disposal. We follow all local codes when discarding the water far from your home. Our goal is always restoration, so we use professional antimicrobials to sanitize floors, walls, ceilings, and the structural elements of your home rather than demolition. Our crew takes moisture readings and positions high-efficiency air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out space, checking for and draining any hidden pockets of retained water.
 
If the affected area contains furnishings and personal belongings we help you make informed decisions about what to keep and dry and what must be thrown out. We typically stage movable items in a nearby and dry garage or another shelter to give you and the team time to review the soaked articles. SERVPRO has available freeze drying services for important papers and pictures, but care must be taken to get those items frozen quickly and dealt with later.
 
After the flood call SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach for fast and professional damage restoration services. Our number is (386) 677-9993, answered 24 hours a day.

Fire Damage and Smoke Damage Restoration Services in Daytona Beach

Fire Damage Fire Damage and Smoke Damage Restoration Services in Daytona Beach Smoke & Fire Damage Cleanup in Daytona Beach Is No Match for SERVPRO

SERVPRO Offers Full Cleanup After Smoke & Fire Damage

Homes serve as a place for relaxation after a long day of hard work. Unfortunately, they are also a den of hazards that can decimate the structure within minutes, in the event of an accident. Just recently, a trailer sustained severe smoke damage when a candle fell into a bin with flammable linen, setting property worth millions of dollars ablaze.
 
Are you prepared for such a situation? If not, SERVPRO has highly trained technicians who can provide fire damage restoration services for your Daytona Beach property quickly and efficiently. We have industry-standard tools and products and follow IICRC recommendations in every emergency.
 
The main purpose of smoke damage restoration is to return materials to preloss condition. SERVPRO restorers apply a structured procedure to accomplish this task. We scrutinize the site for any smoke residues, starting from the source of the fire. Sometimes an area can contain different types of smoke residues in one place. In this case, our specialists choose the most efficient cleaning method for all the residues present.
 
The type of surface plays a huge role in selecting a cleanup method/product. Our fire damage restorers understand that certain cleaning processes can end up damaging the material completely, so we must be cautious in our decision. Whenever possible, we start by vacuuming off the surface loose debris and soil. We consider the type of action we are looking for, such as changing pH, oxidizing, bleaching, emulsifying, and dissolving. Next, we use dry and wet cleaning procedures to break the bond between residue particles and the surfaces. The debris and resultant waste are disposed of after cleaning.
 
Heat is also important in fire damage restoration, as it tends to accelerate the cleaning process. SERVPRO experts choose an appropriate temperature depending on the material and cleaning solution at play. To agitate the surface, we use brushes, air & water pressures, towels, and sonic vibrations in ultrasonic machines, both at our plant and on-site. This process helps to dislodge residues and distribute cleaning products throughout the surface.
 
The amount of time it takes to complete the smoke damage restoration process depends on the type of residues and the product. Our technicians also deodorize smoke odors resulting from the fire, which can make staying in your house virtually intolerable.
 
We understand that accidents are unavoidable. If your house sustains fire damage and smoke damage from faulty wiring, candles, or just curious children, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach. We are available 24/7 at – (386) 677-9993.

Laundry Day Mold Discovery In Daytona Beach

Mold Remediation Laundry Day Mold Discovery In Daytona Beach Moisture Leads to Need for Mold Remediation by SERVPRO in Your Daytona Beach Home

Mold Discovered? Call in the Remediation Experts--SERVPRO

The requirements mold spores have for growth are straightforward and available in many areas of your home. Moisture, oxygen, and a surface coated with just a bit of nourishment are all that is needed. SERVPRO mold remediation specialists help with everything from finding the water source and clearing the mold away safely to offering hints on how to avoid another outbreak.

You believe one of the cleanest areas of your home is the laundry room with its high-efficiency washer and dryer, and shelves full of detergents, stain removers and bleach. However, you notice a sour, earthy smell and some discolored areas near the dryer vent. Unexpected or not, mold damage is a reality in your Daytona Beach home. We can help remove the mold and determine why this area of your home is such a microbial incubator.
 
SERVPRO follows the Environmental Protection Agency’s protocols for mold remediation in schools and commercial buildings in any interior space. First, the team contains the area for the safety of you and your family. Plastic sheeting is hung, and any nearby vents of your HVAC system must be covered. If the infestation is significant, we bring in a negative pressure air scrubber to be certain no particles of the mold escape into the air during the remediation. We remove and bag the mold and any surface it infiltrates, preparing to dispose of it properly outside of the home.
 
The team then applies antimicrobials to the affected areas and vacuums up lint and other debris with our HEPA filter equipment. SERVPRO experts inspect the area to be sure all mold is gone and moisture and nourishment sources eliminated. Common places for mold growth in a laundry room include the gasket around a front loading washer, the lint trap and vent of the dryer, and even the piles of clothes and linens waiting for their turn. Wiping down the gasket, limiting the time dirty laundry wait, and cleaning the dryer vents and lint screens help.
 
The hot and humid conditions in Florida require extra vigilance. It is crucial to keep the humidity within all areas of your home between 30 and 50 percent. Running your AC should do this, but many households add a dehumidifier to achieve the proper level. Consider having your air conditioner checked and cleaned as a final safeguard.
 
SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach has the technicians and equipment to manage mold damage in your home. Call (386) 677-9993 to have an experienced mold remediation specialist evaluate any mold concerns.

Water Damage Local College Flood Classrooms were heavily affected but because of quick thinking by the school damage was minimized.

It was a normal Friday at the local college, classes were almost finished for the day and faculty was getting ready to head home. One of the maintenance men noticed a pump from the water tank was showing low pressure and as a back up two more pumps came online to make up the difference. What was happening? A pipe burst inside of a maintenance room of the science building. Unfortunately the door were closed and the room began to fill with water until it reached approximately 6-7ft and a wall gave way releasing over 10,000 gallons of water into the 1st floor of the building. The fast acting faculty immediately got the pumps turned off and called SERVPRO Daytona Beach.

Does Your Volusia County Home Have A Mold Problem?

8/19/2016 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation  Does Your Volusia County Home Have A Mold Problem? In Volusia County, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Daytona Beach Smoke and Soot Cleanup

7/27/2016 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Daytona Beach Smoke and Soot Cleanup Don't worry, we can make this Like it never even happened.

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Daytona Beach will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
