Whether it started in a nearby brush or right on your Edgewater home stovetop, a fire can wreak havoc on your home. That is why it’s crucial to contact a fire restoration crew as soon as the damage is done. If you’re wondering how SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach-Titusville repairs properties, the guide below lists the steps of the restoration process.

5 Steps to the Fire Restoration Process

1. Inspection

SERVPROs fire restoration crew will start by putting on safety gear so they can enter the site without inhaling smoke particles. Then, they’ll conduct a thorough inspection of the building, making a note of any fire, smoke, or water damage they encounter along the way.

2. Containment

To prevent the smoke particles and soot from drifting throughout the property and causing further damage, such as discoloration, our team of professionals will block off the most damaged areas. If the fire consumed the roof, they will cover the area with a tarp to protect the property from the elements.

3. Water Damage Restoration

If water was used by the property owners or the New Smyrna Beach firefighters to stop the fire from spreading, there may be water damage to address as well. The crew might have to rip out soggy carpets and remove wet wallpaper or insulation to prevent future mold growth. If mold has already begun to grow, they will execute remediation tactics to prevent it from spreading.

4. Fire Damage Restoration

This labor-intensive stage begins with soot removal on the walls and ceilings of the property. The crew has to be careful when removing the smoke damage so that the particles don’t become airborne and circulate throughout the indoor air supply. To remove particles already floating around, they may use an air scrubber. The crew will also work on restoring charred upholstery, window treatments, and mattresses.

5. Home Repair

Finally, the crew will wrap up the fire restoration process by addressing structural and aesthetic damage to the home. This might include reconstructing walls, frames, or support beams, replacing drywall or flooring, and repainting walls.

Home fires can be devastating both financially and emotionally, especially due to the fact that smoke and water damage from putting out the fire, often amplifies the destruction to both the structure and the contents. At SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach-Titusville, we are highly trained professionals that will help you recover from devastating fire & water damage if you do suffer a structure fire, but we believe that prevention is better than a cure. However, we know that accidents happen. That is why our team is ready to respond to your emergency 24/7/365!

SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach-Titusville specializes in water and fire damage clean-up and restoration services for both residential and commercial customers. For more information or to schedule a free estimate, call our office at (321) 264-0205!

Preparing your Storm Emergency Kit!

Being a prepared Edgewater home owner and business owner is essential, especially as we are in the midst of hurricane season. Although it has been a relatively calm season so far, it is very easy to get overwhelmed when disasters such as a hurricane, flooding, or fire strike. By having an emergency preparedness kit, you can have peace of mind knowing that you and your family have the supplies needed to last you a couple of days. With just passing the peak of storm season, September 10th, now is the time to begin putting together your emergency kit, or updating and checking expiration dates on your existing kit. 

What is an Emergency Kit? 

An emergency kit is a collection of household items that are essential to have on hand during an emergency. The supplies in your kit should be able to sustain your family for a few days if needed. When putting these kits together, make sure they are easily accessible and storable so they can be accessed at a moment's notice, like plastic bins or a duffel bag. 

So What All Goes Into an Emergency Kit? 

When putting your kit together, start with the items that you and your family cannot go without if you are stuck without access to any other supplies for a couple of days. As well as important documents and information that will be critical once the storm has passed Items such as: 

  • Water- one gallon per person, per day
  • Non-perishable food- enough to last at least 3 days 
  • Flashlights/ candles 
  • First-aid kit
  • Battery-powered radio
  • Extra batteries 
  • Extra clothing and shoes
  • Prescription and non-prescription medication
  • Glasses/ contact lenses and solution 
  • Cash
  • Insurance policy information, identification, and banking information are saved electronically, as well as printed and stored in a waterproof and fireproof container 

If you have any infants or pets in the home, be sure to have formula, bottles, diapers, and wipes as well as extra pet food and water. 

After you assemble your emergency kit, it is important to do a yearly review of the supplies to ensure that nothing is outdated and that they are still safe to use. A yearly review will also account for the changes that your family sees, as kids are born or grow older, you'll need different items that you perhaps did not need in the past. The same goes with pets or any medical or health changes that could occur. Your kit needs to be ready to meet your family's needs at that time in your life, so updating your kits and supplies is critical when planning for emergencies. 

At SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach- Titusville, we understand the uncertainty that surrounds disasters and hurricane season. "Is this storm going to hit?" "Do we need to evacuate?" It can be a scary and stressful time, preparing in advance can help ease some of those worries. After the fact, if your home or business should suffer any damage from the storm, your local New Smyrna Beach SERVPRO is here to help.

Some common questions we hear from residents in New Smyrna Beach that just had a house fire is what do we do next? How can we restore our home from the fire damage? Will our house always smell like smoke? Lastly, how does the soot travel so fast? These are all very valid questions about fire damage restoration and SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach- Titusville is here to help!

The first step a Volusia County home or business owner should take after having a fire is to call a professional restoration company. The fire could have caused structural damage within the property and it is important to have it assessed for safety reasons. Another aspect a lot of people do not realize is that you probably have water damage as well. This could be from the New Smyrna Fire department or your own efforts trying to put the fire out. This is why speed is key to reduce the secondary damage that can begin. 

SERVPROs fire damage restoration process is to first assess the structural damage, soot debri, and smoke damage. We offer board up and tarps for broken windows or damaged roofs, to again, save your home from secondary damages (rain or even vandalism). We then actually start the fire restoration process, we move in air scrubbers to help deodorize and clean the air, wipe down structures and contents within your home to help with soot and sanitization, and lastly rebuild if needed. 

Your Edgewater home will not always have the smoke and soot damages. We have top of the line equipment like mentioned before, our air scrubbers will help with the smoke damage. We also have air movers and dehumidifiers that will help with possible water damage that has occurred. Also SERVPRO will wipe down everything within your home, the soot on the walls, we offer upholstery cleaning, wiping down even the smallest of things such as books or keepsakes. Soot can travel so fast because it enters your air duct system. We provide a full cleaning service of your HVAC to keep this from happening. This will improve the smell of the home while also removing soot, dust, pollen and debris. We will make your home "Like it never even happened!" 

Call us today at (321) 264-0205 to have one of our production managers provide a free estimate for your home or business. We have an on call team 24/7/365! New Smyrna Beach will always talk to someone from within our office, we never outsource our calls. SERVPRO wants you to have a safe summer! 

In Times of Distress, SERVPRO is Here to Help with Biohazard Cleanup

8/10/2022 (Permalink)

Servpro technicians in full proper protective gear to clean a biohazard situation in Edgewater Our team has the proper training and equipment to handle your biohazard situation quickly and with the utmost respect and compassion.

Most Edgewater property owners don't think twice about knowing who to call for a biohazard situation until a situation occurs when you need that service. If it does possibly cross their minds, the word “biohazard” typically is thought to be something like bodily fluids or perhaps toxins that need to be cleaned up. However, biohazard cleanup addresses an array of cleanup situations best left to professionals.

What is Considered Biohazard?

Biohazard situations require the decontamination of a home or business due to trauma, sewage backups, chemical spills, and hoarding- not only can these situations be dangerous but they can also be emotional. At SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach- Titusville, we offer a variety of biohazard cleaning services like:

  • Crime scene residues
  • Suicide/death accidents
  • Homicide cleanups
  • Blood cleanups
  • Accident cleanups
  • Animal waste/remains
  • Tear gas cleanup
  • Meth lab cleanup 

No One Expects to Have a Need for Biohazard Cleanup 

Situations like criminal activity occurring on your property is something that no one is readily prepared for and the aftermath of criminal activity may require professional cleanup. 
Whether you are facing bodily fluid cleanup or hazardous materials, it's best to call professionals who are well-versed in these specialty cleanups and can help you navigate this catastrophe. 

What Happens During a Biohazard Event?

If a severe injury or death event occurs in your home or place of business, the pathogens present when blood and other fluids saturate your floors/carpeting, walls, furnishing, and other surfaces must be removed following applicable safety and health codes. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and local health inspection agencies mandate all needed procedures. In trauma, medical or crime situations, we remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue, and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime, or death according to those guidelines. 

No Matter the Traumatic Event, SERVPRO is Here to Help!

No one anticipates a violent crime, death, or other biohazardous situation to occur in their home, but it’s important to know who to call when you need assistance with cleanup. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year—our highly trained technicians are standing by to help in any emergency. We have qualified trained professionals who are ready to respond to these incidents. Understanding the additional stress caused by biohazardous situations, we will always treat your Edgewater property and the people involved with the greatest empathy and respect in the face of trying circumstances. If you need assistance with biohazard cleanup on your property or just have questions on what the next steps are, don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach- Titusville at 321-264-0205

All of the locations where if water damage occurs we know how to stop the flood, or if fire damage occurs where SERVPRO should be extra cautious. It also gives us insight into how many pieces of mitigation equipment may be needed and how many IICRC Certified technicians should help with the affected area.

SERVPRO also takes notes of special instructions such as where to park our vehicles, how to enter the building, and if our professionals should only use certain staircases or elevators. If your business has special instructions for the residents who live inside, for example an assisted living, the safety protocols our team should follow. SERVPROs ERP also includes information for who the main contact is, who can sign off for the mitigation work to begin, who your insurance company is, and SERVPROs contact information when the storm disaster strikes. SERVPRO also has the ReadyPlan app on your phone so this information can be easily shared among employees. 

All of these contact, location, and special instructions helps SERVPRO help your property.
