What is the Total Cost of Rebuilding After Fire Damage in Daytona Beach?

5/28/2020 (Permalink)

Burning flame isolated on black Fire restoration is an expensive, complex task that requires careful planning and testing.

Professional Restorers in Daytona Beach Can Help Keep Expenses Under Control

Is Fire Restoration a Skilled Job?

The costs of repair for a property with fire damage in Daytona Beach can spiral out of control without a solid grasp of the process. SERVPRO technicians combine their training with years of experience to provide services that are on-time and on-budget. It is essential to have a clear understanding of the methodology in restoring a property from start to finish before beginning work. Even with a solid-gameplan, there are so many variables that can influence restoration, which requires technicians to think on their feet and adapt to unexpected outcomes.

What are the stages of restoring a burnt property?

    •    Scoping the structure and neutralizing potential hazards
    •    Clearing the affected area of debris and non-salvageable materials
    •    Removing smoke residues and soots
    •    Deodorizing the property and re-installing materials

What tasks should I perform before cleaning smoke and soot residues?

The planning stage is crucial to a successful restoration. Start at the point of most damage and work outwards. Some smoke residues may be so faint as to blend in with the surrounding walls. These areas may not be visually noticeable but can continue to cause issues with fire odor. To locate light smoke residues, clean a small area of the surface, and compare it with the surrounding area. If there is a noticeable color difference, then include the area on your cleaning list. SERVPRO technicians also pre-test surfaces for cleanability during inspection to ensure that the cleaning process is efficient.

Dealing with Hazardous Materials in your Daytona Home after Flood Damage

Flood damage Daytona beach

Flooding can present an array of challenges for a homeowner or restoration team. It is helpful to break these challenges down to provide the most effective, efficient, and least-costly service. You can broadly group flood restoration into two categories of water mitigation and water restoration. Mitigation is an emergency service that aims to prevent further damage. These may be things like pumping standing water out of the home. Restoration focuses on returning a property to its preloss condition and may include refinishing or cleaning duties.

There is a third category that we use when dealing with flood damage here in Daytona Beach. Safety covers both workers on-site as well as the property itself and can fall into mitigation as well as restoration categories. The large mass of water can exert excessive force onto your home's structure. Masses of water may weaken drywall, particleboard floors as well as masking sharp debris like broken glass or splinters. Failure to spot structural weaknesses can result in massive amounts of damage. Heavy equipment, for example, could cause waterlogged ceilings to collapse into lower floors.

SERVPRO emergency water restoration technicians can scope a property on your behalf to ensure that the mitigation of further flood damages is complete. We can punch weep holes into ceilings that have become oversaturated with water to allow them to drain and dry before approaching upper levels with restoration equipment. We can also scan the property for ACM materials, which may require a third-party licensed asbestos abatement restorer to assist with restoration.

If your property was built before 1970, there is a chance of discovering lead-based paint during the scoping procedure. SERVPRO has certifications in lead-based paint activities and renovation (RRRP.) This certification allows us to safely, scrape, remove, and restore properties containing lead substances. While mitigation and restoration of water are the core components of dealing with a flooded property, safe work practices are equally essential to getting your home back to a preloss condition.

If you are worried about potential safety hazards in a flooded property, contact SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993.

Your Best Guide to Daytona Beach Water Removal

11/15/2019 (Permalink)

tree trunk falls on top of home causing damage to the roof Damage to your home’s roof can quickly bring rainwater inside. Contact SERVPRO to remediate the water damage.

Why SERVPRO Uses Different Water Removal Techniques when Restoring Your Daytona Beach Home

When your home in Daytona Beach ends up soaked after a tree topples down onto your roof, you need to not only get the tree taken care of and your roof repaired, but you also need to get the rain out of your home. SERVPRO can take care of all aspects that a horrific storm causes your property to experience. 

Keeping everything as efficient as possible is why SERVPRO mitigates homes in Daytona Beach using different water removal techniques. These mitigation methods also provide protection against many types of damage, including destruction from water or moisture and microbial infestations. Removing the water that entered your attic can also keep the ceilings of lower floors from becoming stained. 

As soon as our building services team finishes removing the offending tree, clearing out the debris, and making the initial repairs to the roof, we start removing water from the area. Simultaneously, other crew members are pulling water out of the walls. We can tell where water migrates by using our infrared imaging cameras. There is no guesswork, or wasted time, involved in this step. 

When water enters into the interiors of walls, floors, as well as the ceilings below, we must do more than extract the water by letting it drain away. We also must get the materials these structures are made of dry again. Water trapped in hidden areas like this can cause problems both here and wherever it migrates. Blowing heated air into these cavities only works if we also provide a place for the dampened air to exit. Because of this, we often vent the cavity so that our desiccant machine can treat the air soon after it exits.

Carpets that became saturated with rain require immediate attention for us to save them from developing more extensive damage. Instead of replacing them like we must do after a flood, clean water, such as rain, allows us to restore them through drying and cleaning. 

Depending on the pile, the backing type, and the padding under the affected carpet, our restoration team might choose to perform a technique called floating the carpet. This raises the carpet off the floor and allows the carpet, pad, and underlay to dry all at the same time. This is often used for thinner carpets. Other carpets might respond better to weighted extraction methods. We use non-snagging machines that easily press the water out and into a collection chamber.

SERVPRO's water removal specialists also treat the air to reduce the amount of water vapor that can fill your home after rain ends up coming in through a hole in the roof. From top to bottom, SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach uses water removal machinery and methods to dry your home and make things “Like it never even happened.” Call (386) 677-9993 for experts near your Holly Hill, Mound Grove, or National Gardens residence.

A Rapid and Confident Response to Daytona Beach Outlet Flooding

Outlet malls can be found throughout the outskirts of Daytona Beach, offering buyers the opportunity to find the clothing and wares they want at a reduced price. With many of these outlets being open-air marketplaces, storefronts and structures are susceptible to storm damages that can frequently threaten the coast. With a severe weather event, multiple stores throughout the outlet mall can experience flood losses.

As traumatic as this situation can be, flood damage to multiple Daytona Beach shops is not something you should leave to the maintenance or custodial team for the grounds. Your objective as a branch of a major brand is to get your doors back open as quickly as possible for as little out-of-pocket expense as you can manage. While professional restoration that our SERVPRO team provides is costlier than doing the work yourself, we have sophisticated tools and products that can expedite getting your doors back open.

Time is money in the business world, and flooding can do more damage than just to the structural integrity of exposed materials. Contents of the shop also remain at risk. Clothing is particularly absorbent to moisture and dampness, and without the right intervention from our trained content managers, you can contend with substantial losses to your stock and inventory. Mitigation that our SERVPRO team starts when we arrive encompasses both practical avenues, including both drying and extraction, as well as content management from our accredited crew.

Part of our disaster relief success in the region stems from our availability in the crisis. Daytona Beach has a 24/7 response to emergencies, which encompasses the full measure of both our personnel and resources. Our experts want to protect what matters most to you, and to shop management, it is their employees, their customers, and their product.

Outlet malls are a staple of shopping around almost every major city in the country, so it is what travelers and tourists expect to find when they visit the area. Our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach professionals work to provide a fast and confident response to get your doors back open quickly after flooding. Give us a call at (386) 677-9993.

Advanced Equipment, Attention to Detail, Highly Trained Technicians Are Why SERVPRO Is a Premier Restoration Company in the Daytona Beach Area

Fast and Effective Restoration Services for Daytona Beach Homes

With thousands of residents and commercial entities sharing real estate in the Greater Daytona Beach area, we had to work hard to become one of the premier restoration services available in the region. With decades in the industry, we have honed and crafted our skills to become one of the leading teams offering a fast and skilled response to water, fire, mold, and storm damage emergencies. As we have professionals representing nearly all niches of recovery, we are a comprehensive solution that can help our customers through every phase from initial inspection through the final walkthrough.

Storm
Storms are a nearly constant threat to Daytona Beach and this entire coastal region of Florida. With weather events that can rapidly gather strength to destroy homes and businesses, or cause substantial structural damages, situations can get out of control quickly. From breaches that lead to flood loss or exterior compromise that can sever utilities, our professionals must have a tailored response to individual properties to complete restorations in cost-effective and efficient manners.

We have a full roster of SERVPRO professionals that have accreditations through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in both Water Restoration (WRT) and Applied Structural Drying (ASD.) Many of these same dedicated technicians have other accreditations from this same standard-setting organization in vital niches of the industry like Carpet Cleaning, Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning, Biohazard Cleaning, and Mold Remediation. We can address flood loss scenarios that can piggyback on storm damage to Daytona Beach homes with confidence and skill, showcasing the full measure of our inventory of leading equipment and products.

We have a team of contractors ready and able to provide both temporary repairs to prevent further water penetration, including board up and tarping. Our team of contractors can also help by offering full-scale renovations and reconstruction for your Daytona Beach property once the mitigation work inside completes.  

Water
Much like our skilled response to flood loss scenarios, the same dedicated professionals with accreditations through the IICRC respond when water damage affects Daytona Beach properties as well. With decades of service in our region, our SERVPRO team has become a trusted crew for extraction, drying, and cleanup.  

From everything from a faulty appliance through leaking plumbing fixtures, water damage can vary significantly in severity and source in Daytona Beach residences. We have an evolving inventory of recovery and mitigation tools, helping us to provide your house with the effective drying and water removal services necessary to prevent excessive exposure and saturation that leads to tearing out and reconstruction.

We know how quickly water loss incidents can get out of control, and how difficult it can be to determine the full extent of this damage within your Daytona Beach home. Our professionals arrive with the machines to get mitigation work started, and discovery devices and infrared cameras to continually monitor the success of drying efforts to determine where additional drying or attention might be necessary.

Fire

One of the most traumatic and damaging of all loss situations is fire damage to Daytona Beach properties. Whether residential or commercial, even smaller-scale incidents can require multiple layers of effects to overcome, including odors, soot, smoke, debris, airborne particulates, and structural concerns. We have a full roster of qualified technicians certified through the IICRC in Fire & Smoke Restoration (FSRT) and Odor Control (OCT.)

We strive to provide our customers with a reliable and immediate response in light of damaging fire loss impacts, and that begins with a full damage assessment. We carefully inspect every area of your Daytona Beach property to create a tailored recovery response based on the personnel and equipment necessary to bring your home back to preloss condition. These actions get overseen by a Master Fire & Smoke Restorer that we have on our staff, which can ensure that the work gets done correctly and efficiently.

As many fire loss scenarios impact structural integrity, our SERVPRO team also provides a crew of competent contracting specialists that can work to recover your Daytona Beach home with both temporary solutions so mitigation can begin and seamlessly transitioning into full-scale reconstruction and build back. We have a restore before replacing mentality, so our crew works to recover damaged original construction materials before demolition, and later reinstallation occurs.

Mold
Mold damage in Daytona Beach homes is a common situation given the higher level of humidity that many in the coastal Florida areas contend with year-round. While we encourage our customers to seek proper ventilation and to maintain dry environments within their properties, sometimes specific areas get neglected, and mold growth occurs. These colonies can spread rapidly, allowing the organisms to quickly grow out of control and require the intricate training and advanced products and equipment of our SERVPRO remediation team.

Our team can work first to quarantine the affected areas of your Daytona Beach house to prevent the situation from getting any worse than it already is. With skilled IICRC-Certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians fitted with the latest equipment and products, we can eliminate much of the mold colonization with effective strategies like sanding and soda blasting while reducing spore activity with negative air chambers and air scrubbing equipment.

As a licensed mold contractor in the state of Florida (MRSR515), we can do much more for Daytona Beach properties than to reduce the severity of mold colonization in a residence or business. We have contractors that can focus on controlled demolition for heavily compromised structural elements and replace these materials once the moisture in the property has gotten addressed along with the lingering remnants of mold colonization.

There are many ways that disasters can threaten your area home or business, but with decades of industry experience under our belts, our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach team can help. We have a skillfully qualified group of professionals and a robust, modern inventory of recovery tools to make short work of damages to your property. Give us a call at (386) 677-9993 to make all loss incidents “Like it never even happened.”

Ormond Beach Retail Shops and Eateries Trust SERVPRO for Restoration Services

Ormond Beach Bakery Is Open for Business after a Water Loss Thanks to SERVPRO

Commercial Floodwater Removal Services for Ormond Beach  

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

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

When Your Daytona Beach Dishwasher Creates Water Damage

Has your dishwasher flooded your kitchen? Call SERVPRO Franchise professionals to remove the water.

Dishwasher Error Needs Water Removal in Daytona Beach Condos

Appliances can be vital for comfortable living in your Daytona Beach condo, but regular upkeep and maintenance ensures their long life and proper functions. Without regular maintenance and servicing, appliances like the dishwasher can begin to wear down, causing water seals and drains to malfunction. Without a proper seal on the door of your dishwasher, a single cycle can leave your kitchen area flooded.

While many homeowners might not recognize the signs that the dishwasher requires repair, they can appreciate the need for water removal services in Daytona Beach when the machine malfunctions. Our SERVPRO professionals have a 24-hour response to emergencies that can provide our customers with the immediate help they need to protect flooring materials and cabinetry in their damaged kitchen areas.

From the time that our professionals arrive at your home, we can begin the necessary sopping of the water and even use our advanced extraction tools should your kitchen require it. We have portable sump pumps and even gas-powered pumps that are capable of quickly removing pooling water around fixtures and flooring throughout your damaged kitchen area. Once the excess water has gotten removed, we can focus on identifying what areas of the kitchen became exposed to this water damage and what further efforts are necessary to restore the damage entirely.

To find the lingering dampness and saturation, our SERVPRO professionals utilize our thermal imagery cameras that can identify moisture pockets in the flooring materials, cabinetry, in wall materials and their cavities, and any other exposed elements. This information can help our technicians to place drying equipment to maximize the results effectively.

With a fast response to emergencies like water loss incidents, our professionals can often protect and preserve saturated materials to prevent tear out and replacement. Give our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach rapid response team a call anytime that you need us at (386) 677-9993.

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

1/31/2019 (Permalink)

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.

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

1/3/2019 (Permalink)

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)

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.

What to Avoid During the Fire Damage Remediation Process in Daytona

Fire damage restoration can be overwhelming. Contact SERVPRO to help you deal with the process including insurance agents.

Better Communication with Insurance Agents Facilitates Fire Damage Recovery in Daytona

The destruction created by a fire in your Daytona home can cause a wide range of emotions and feelings to affect your family. Until SERVPRO technicians complete the mitigation and your family can return to a safe and smoke-free home, these emotions, stress, and constant difficulties can plague your family life.
 
We have gained experience in working with insurance agents through our fire damage mitigation work in Daytona. Working with insurance agents benefits our customers in several ways due to our third party nature and our high level of expertise. We learn about the basics of the insurance agent's role in helping families recover from fire damage and other disasters during our training. We continue to learn about such matters, as well as many others, during the time working with SERVPRO.
 
While many items that burned in your home clearly require the purchase of replacements, other belongings, and structures fall inside less defined conditions. With our knowledge of the costs involved in the restoration of such items, we can provide your insurance company with a valid comparison sheet containing the costs to restore, as opposed to replacing, these items. Including details about the extent of the damage as well as photographic evidence can help your agent make a faster decision about reimbursing you for the costs involved.
 
SERVPRO technicians also receive training to help make the mitigation process quicker and less stressful for our customers. We know that the disaster that caused problems inside your property is a source of unexpected problems for you. Mitigating fire damage and removing smoke and soot helps make things safer to enter, which is especially important when you need to gather essential documents or medicines.
 
Cleaning your home of soot deposits helps reduce noticeable odors from the fire, but in no way eliminates them from your home. Our IICRC-certified Odor Control Technician (OCT) uses various techniques, chosen according to the type of materials affected the most. Reliable methods include thermal fogging and the generation of hydroxyl gas. Like other aspects of our work in mitigating fire damage, we work closely with you in performing this part of your home's restoration.

Serving the areas around Holly Hill, National Gardens, and Tomoka Estates, we arrive Faster To Any Disaster. Contact us at (386) 677-9993 whenever your house sustains damage.

Why Water Damage in Your Daytona Beach Home Demands a Quick Response

SERVPRO meets each water event with equipment and expertise.

Why SERVPRO Offers Industry-Leading Water Removal In Daytona Beach

When your Daytona Beach home fills with water because of a weather event or interior plumbing emergency, it is crucial to hire professional help to recover from the situation. The last thing you want to do is try to manage large quantities of water on your own.  Water extraction requires specialized equipment and trained responders and relying on other cleaning services who do not have this equipment can cause further damage to your home. 

To ensure that your water damaged Daytona Beach home receives necessary water removal services, contacting our full-service restoration company is the obvious choice. Taking care of standing water or significant amounts of moisture needs a professional team of trained and certified technicians, which is why SERVPRO meets the challenge. 

Why is SERVPRO preferable to other options? We built our business by being Faster to Any Size Disaster, ready at a moment’s notice to respond to a water emergency. Because we understand that speed is essential when water threatens your home’s structure we stock all our service vehicles with the equipment needed to pump out and extract the moisture that threatens the integrity of your property. 

This ability to arrive, assess, and get to work swiftly is why SERVPRO stands alone as the industry leader in our community. As the minutes and hours tick by, water can deteriorate building materials and ruin personal possessions. Pumping out the water and using extraction equipment is the obvious first step in restoring your property to preloss condition. 

Dimensions of a home’s perimeter do not confine water removal needs. Within your home are categories of belongings that need water removal to regain function and appearance. Examples include books and documents, electronics, clothing, and treasured pictures and heirlooms. The talented production technicians we have assembled are another reason why SERVPRO offers services not found elsewhere. 

We invest in equipment that removes the moisture and dries out a wide variety of articles you might otherwise discard after water damage. SERVPRO cultivates resources that meet your water removal needs, whether freeze drying for documents or specialized drying chambers for furnishings or electronics. 

Why SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach? We are locally owned and devoted to serving our community. When a water removal emergency looms, call us at (386) 677-9993 for the best outcome possible.
