7/1/2022 (Permalink)

Everyone loves the 4th of July, and there are so reasons to love this holiday: the fireworks, the food, and drinks, the friends, and the fun! At SERVPRO of Flagler County, we want to make sure that you enjoy your Independence Day festivities to the fullest, so we wanted to take this opportunity to share some safety tips with you to help ensure you and your loved ones are safe during all the fun.

Here are some best practices for your fireworks safety:

  • Obey all local laws regarding the use of fireworks.
  • Read the cautionary labels on all your fireworks, and ensure you understand the performance descriptions before igniting.
  • A responsible adult should supervise all firework activities
  • Do not consume alcohol and handle fireworks
  • Wear safety glasses when shooting off your fireworks.
  • Light only one firework at a time and then quickly move away from them. 
  • Use fireworks outside in a clear area and far away from buildings and vehicles.
  • Always have a bucket of water or a properly functioning water hose nearby 
  • Never relight a firework that didn’t fire properly, and wait for about 20 minutes for it to cool off, then soak it in a bucket of water.
  • Never carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them into any containers made of metal or glass; they could explode and send dangerous shards into your audience. 
  • Never experiment with homemade fireworks.
  • Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and placing them in metal trash cans away from any building or combustible materials until the next day.
  • Report illegal explosives, like M-80s and quarter sticks, to the fire or police department.


It’s important that you and all your loved ones are safe while you are having fun. We know that even with following all safety guidelines, accidents still happen, so f you do experience a fire, you can count on SERVPRO of Flagler County for help with any damage that may occur!

Our SERVPRO of Flagler County marketing team attended the Meet the Builders event held by the Flagler Home Builders Association event last night. It was such a great opportunity to network with Palm Coast builders and share SERVPROs restoration and post-construction cleaning services! We really wanted to emphasize that other than emergency restoration services, we also have carpet cleaning, air duct cleaning, odor removal, and sewage & biohazard clean-up. SERVPRO can help remove the smell of cigarette smoke, the smell of fire from a house fire or electrical fire, or the musty smell from water damage. The Flagler County builders know that sometimes floods from a pipe burst or water damage from leaky roofs can happen. Although we do hope it does not happen, it seems to occur at the worst time. That is also why we explained that SERVPRO is open 24 hours a day for all 365 days a year! 

SERVPRO of Flagler County also met with other associates such as AtticMan who is an insulation contractor, Smart Guard Shutters who has all of your hurricane protection needs, and Gorman Company who has plumbing, pool, and septic supplies. We learned a lot about their services that can truly help with storm season upon us. Networking with others in the Flagler community is essential for small business owners alike. Although SERVPRO is a one-stop-shop, we do use vendors when needed and enjoy using businesses from our community! Flagler Home Builders Association has really given us numerous opportunities to connect with others and expand our knowledge about government affairs. We are looking forward to attending future events and networking with the Flagler County Builders and associates! 

Call SERVPRO After Water Damage Strikes

Water intrusions and water losses occur in your Hammock Beach home or business at the least expected time. You are never quite ready for them when they happen and that is why SERVPRO of Flagler County provides emergency services 24 hours a day for 365 days a year.  

For a home water loss, it is best for you as a Palm Coast homeowner or business owner to know where all of the shut-offs are as well as who you can call in case of emergency. SERVPRO has an IICRC-certified team and has top-of-the-line equipment that can handle any disaster big or small. You should also have your insurance company's information and your personal policy information ready. 

Having this key information ready can expedite the water damage process. SERVPRO will be in communication with your home insurance company to receive approvals and to have a speedy water restoration process. Time is essential for water damage restoration so secondary damage can be prevented. Water spreads quickly and it can create wet walls, sub floorings, and ceilings. For example, if a pipe breaks, gallons of water can flood your home quickly, this damage can spread to baseboards, sopping carpets, and can cause ceilings to collapse. 

If you are a business, SERVPRO can make it even easier! We can come out before an issue comes about and map everything out for you with an Emergency Ready Program. This allows us to know who the point of contact is, who your insurance company is, and where your main shut-offs are to minimize the damages to your business and property. 

Call SERVPRO of Flagler County today at (386) 447-2202 with any questions and set up a time to schedule your ERP for your business!

What to Do and Not to Do after a Fire

A house fire is an unbelievable and confusing experience. Although you’ll feel relieved to be safe, you may be overwhelmed by the many tasks for your Painters Hill home or business ahead. A SERVPRO of Flagler County specialist can help address damage to your home. Here are some other helpful steps to take moving forward. 

Do:

Limit the movement in your home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets. It is important to try to keep your hands clean of soot to not further soil upholstery, walls, or woodwork. In your high traffic areas, it would be beneficial to place clean towels or linens on your carpeted floors. Make sure to pay attention to your refrigerator and freezer if the electricity is shut off, we would not want flooding or another odor in your home. It would be best to empty them and prop the doors open. Before SERVPRO’s arrival you could also tape double layers of cheesecloth over your air registers. 

SERVPRO will document every aspect of your home and business. The more information you provide your insurer, the better. When it’s safe to do so, we will walk around your home and take pictures of all damaged items and fixtures. Also creating an inventory of damaged personal belongings. Something as a Grand Haven home owner or business owner you could do to help is to write down a description of the damaged  item, how old it is, and estimate the replacement cost. Include any receipts or bills of sale.

Don’t:

Attempt to clean up the home alone. 

While it may be tempting to clean up, doing so can cause further damage to your belongings. Do not attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces or shampoo carpet or upholstery without contacting us. Fire restoration professionals will come prepared with the necessary protective equipment to perform the task safely. Don't attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire, heat or water without consulting an authorized repair service. There is also a risk of instability and structural damage, luckily our SERVPRO of Flagler County team is certified to locate and treat these damages. We offer several reconstruction services such as board ups, roof tarps, carpet repair, drywall removal/ installation, furniture repair, and hardwood floor repair, and many others. 

SERVPRO of Flagler County provides 24/7 assistance to help salvage your home after a fire. Our professionals can clean all damaged areas, from upholstery, carpeting, to drywall removal. We also offer water removal and restoration if the home sustained damage while the fire was being extinguished. Schedule an appointment with this locally-owned and -operated fire restoration company by calling (386) 447-2202.

What Happens During the Water Damage Restoration Process?

6/10/2022 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Flagler County we understand the anxiety that comes when a water loss event hits your St. Augustine home or business. Our professionally trained staff is accustomed to handling these emergencies, and we strive to minimize the disruption for you so you can get back to normal life, soon. 

But what does the process look like? Well, every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique approach, but the general process stays the same. The water damage restoration process can be broken down into 5 steps: 

1. Emergency Contact: The process begins when you call us, we know that this is a stressful and confusing time so our staff is here to walk you through the crisis by asking you a variety of questions to help our emergency team-best gauge what equipment and resources they need to bring to begin to help you, and your property as quickly as possible.  

2. Damage Assessment: At this stage, our team will begin a detailed assessment of your property to determine the source of the loss and the extent of the damage to ensure proper and complete restoration and dry out. 

3. Water Extraction: During this step is when the majority of the water is removed. Removing most of the water is helpful in reducing drying time and preventing mold growth. If carpet pad and carpet pad removal or a pack-out of items are needed, it will happen at this step. 

4. Drying & Dehumidification: Once the excess water is removed from the property our team will set equipment to further dry it out. From there, we will carefully monitor the process using moisture meters until materials meet drying goals. 

5. Restoration: Once the property is dry, restoring your property to its preloss condition is the final step. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet or it may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

SERVPRO of Flagler County can simplify the restoration process by handling both the initial water damage mitigation and rebuilding the affected areas. Having one qualified company for the entire process can save time and keep costs low! We will also talk to your insurance company and provide updates throughout the whole process!

Water Damage Timeline

6/9/2022 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Flagler County, our team can not stress enough how important it is to address any water damage loss in your Palm Coast home or business as quickly as possible. 

Each water damage loss should be treated as an emergency due to the fact that the longer the water sits, the more damage it can cause as water is especially invasive and can quickly spread through your home quickly. The following timeline shows how important fast water damage cleanup is and why you should act fast. 

Immediately After Water Damage

Within minutes of a water loss, water will begin to spread quickly, saturating whatever it comes into contact with. Porous materials like drywall, wood, insulation, and fabric/upholstery will begin to absorb water.

24 Hours After Water Damage 

After the water has been sitting for 24 hours, upholstery and carpet will become heavy, and sodden from water saturation. Structural materials such as drywall, insulation, and others will begin to swell and bow. Wood maybe begin to warp, colors and dyes will begin to bleed from fabrics, and paper goods will no longer be salvageable. Luckily SERVPRO is your one-stop shop, we can provide reconstruction services after water mitigation takes place. 

48 Hours After Water Damage 

After 48 hours, mold spores can continue to spread throughout the property and may even begin to be visible on surfaces. Wood will continue to warp and bend due to the excess moisture. Metal objects will begin to corrode and rust, and drywall, insulation, carpet padding, and other textile goods will begin to show major signs of deterioration and may no longer be salvageable. Check out our water damage tips that our team of IICRC-certified professionals put together to help save your property. 

One Week After Water Damage

One week after a water loss occurs, restoration costs and procedures will be significantly increased because now structural damages are a major concern. A structural rebuild will be necessary in order to restore the property to preloss condition as cracking, buckling, breaking, peeling, bending and other signs of determination will likely be visible on the walls, floors, and ceilings. Few if any items in the exposed area will be salvable, most will have sustained too much damage by this point and will need to be disposed of. Our team of professionals will walk you through this time, giving you step-by-step updates on how we are going to get your home or business to preloss condition. 

SERVPRO of Flagler County is here to help and ready to respond to emergency water damage situations 24/7/365 because we know how important it is when water damage occurs!
