Daytona Beach Residents Need Water Damage Restoration That Does the Job  

Everyone living in Daytona Beach knows how easy it is for a leak to get started in the bathroom. The faucet might leak, the toilet might overflow, or someone might over-fill the bath. When a calamity happens in your home, you want to get it sorted out as quickly as possible.  

SERVPRO offers water damage restoration services in Daytona Beach. No matter what caused the water damage in your bathroom, our trained technicians are here for you. We are always available 24/7, and we are Faster To Any Size Disaster. Whether you are facing a minor leak around the base of your sink, or a significant flood that has soaked your floor, we can remedy it.  

What are the risks of water damage?  

You should not ignore water damage, even if it seems mild. A bathroom leak might lead to:  

  • A broken toilet or faucet
  • Ruined floor coverings
  • Water-logged towels and personal belongings
  • Water damage to walls, baseboards, the floor, and even the ceiling of the room underneath 

There is also a risk of fungal growth if water damage is left untreated. Fast action is essential, which is why we recommend calling us immediately. 

Why is it crucial to call a professional company for water cleanup?  

We know it is tempting to save money by cleaning up water leaks yourself in Daytona Beach. However, water damage restoration is a job for professionals. Trained technicians:  

  • Know the quickest and most effective ways to dry your bathroom
  • Can use thermal imaging to see how deep into the walls the water has spread
  • Have a range of pumps and extractors on hand to vacuum away water
  • Can advise you on which items to salvage, and which to toss 

What can I expect when SERVPRO arrives?

After our technicians arrive and introduce themselves, they will walk through your bathroom and assess the damage. We start with a visual assessment, and we will discuss the nature of the incident with you. We also use various meters and probes to get exact moisture readings. 

Once we fully understand the situation, we will draw up a drying plan and explain it to you. As soon as you confirm you are happy with the program, our team will start remediation.  

Which fixtures and fittings can SERVPRO dry?  

We aim to dry and repair items rather than replace them. We can dry out the floor and walls, behind baseboards, and around fittings in many cases. We can even clean and dry personal belongings such as towels or bath toys.  

We cannot usually dry water-damaged cosmetics, and you will need to toss those items away. Our team will give their professional assessment on what to save and what to trash.  

What happens if the damp has gotten into the walls or soaked into the floor? 

Depending on the leak's source and magnitude, water might have soaked into the walls and made the drywall wet. Water can also leak behind baseboards or soak into wooden floors. SERVPRO technicians use thermal imaging, moisture probes, and non-penetrating moisture meters to assess your bathroom and adjacent rooms' damage and rooms directly below the toilet.  

If we find water damage inside the walls or beneath the floors, we can remedy it. Our team can remove damaged materials and replace them. We can also help with replacing wallpaper, repainting walls, and replacing floor coverings. If the situation requires extra professionals, we oversee the new staff and ensure all their work meets our high standards.  

What is the drying process?  

The first step in drying is to remove as much moisture as possible from your bathroom. We achieve this by using pumps and extractors. We also remove as many personal belongings as possible, both to keep them safe and get them out of the way to position dryers and fans where needed. 

When we have completed water extraction, we move on to drying the room. We place air movers, fans, and dehumidifiers, to dry the area. We train all our technicians in drying science and best practices. We monitor moisture levels before, during, and after drying to adjust our technique if necessary. 

Can you help with odors? 

Of course. We understand that water damage often leaves a moldy, unpleasant smell behind. Some of the tools we use include to capture smells and leave your bathroom smelling fresh include: 

  • air scrubbers
  • carbon filters
  • odor removing pellets 

When drying is complete, we will review our work with you and answer any concerns.
