Dealing with Hazardous Materials in your Daytona Home after Flood Damage

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.
