Having a fire safety plan for your family is so important. In the event of a fire, every family member knowing exactly what to do could truly be life-saving. That's why here at SERVPRO of West Volusia County we strongly support the creation of home fire escape plans in every household.

If you do not already have a plan in place for your home, here are a few tips for creating one! 

  1. Family members should know two ways to get out of every room in the home. 
  2. Make specific escape routes and plans for homes with two stories or more.
  3. Pick a meeting place outside of the home where your family will go in the event of a fire. 
  4. Home fire drills should be performed to make sure that the plan in place works well. 
  5. Make sure every member of the family knows how to call 9-1-1. 

For all of your fire restoration needs, give us a call at (386) 574-0864.

Hurricane Season...It's Time to Start Preparing

5/9/2019 (Permalink)

Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 5-11, 2019)

There are so many essential tools and preparedness tips to get your family ready for hurricane season. Here in Central Florida, we know how important it is to make sure your family has a solid plan in place to stay as safe and secure as possible when facing a big storm. Here are a few guidelines we find most effective:

  1. Stay tuned to your local weather channels. Be in the know! It allows you the most time to prepare if a storm arises. It also allows for the most accurate local threats you may face during and after severe weather.
  2. Have an evacuation plan in place. Know where you would go, transportation avenues, and a timeline for travel.
  3. Finally, finalize an insurance plan that has the coverage you need to protect against severe weather damage. The majority of homeowners do not know the complete extent of what their insurance plan does or does not cover.

We hope these reminders assist you in planning for this upcoming hurricane season. Know that SERVPRO of West Volusia is always here for your storm restoration needs! (386) 574-0864.

Every five years, the standards are reviewed and updated. The water damage restoration field changes rapidly with advancements in technology and science, and therefore the standards must evolve to keep pace.

The Difference You Didn't Expect

3/8/2019 (Permalink)

"Any restoration company can make the damage disappear, but we will fix it." - Joe Dalton (General Manager)

Last month, our owners sat down with a local magazine to talk about the restoration industry. After rolling through the interview touch points, including industry expert questions and more specific business information. The journalist asked if someone could sum up what makes SERVPRO of West Volusia, unique in the restoration business. 

The answer is the difference you didn't expect.

It's going to seem strange - When you look down at your phone to see our Operations Manager calling you when we had finished our job days or even a week earlier. You may even chuckle a little as we ask if everything is still working and satisfactorily back to normal. After all, we will have already done a final walk through and asked those same exact questions. 

This is what makes us unique. The one extra call. The one extra step. The one extra moment to ensure that your home or business is left as good, if not better than before the damage occurred.

"Like it never even happened." isn't just a slogan, it's how we conduct business every single day.

That's where we come in.

Severe Weather Awareness Week - Florida

1/18/2019 (Permalink)

Florida Severe Weather Awareness Week is full of essential information and tips to help you be prepared in various severe weather events. 

The awareness platform details ways to stay safe in the event of a lightning storm. (VITAL information for Floridians to pay attention to.)

It also talks about hurricanes and flooding. What you can do to prepare your family, home, and business for these events should they occur. 

Earlier this week, a statewide tornado drill was held in order for proactive participants to take part in tornado safety exercises. (FYI, if you do not do this, you should.) 

Marine hazards and rip currents are also a topic of concern especially in Florida. If you are EVER beach-goers, you and your family should be up to date on these dangers and safety precautions. 

Finally, fires and extreme temperatures are important awareness topics. Florida's dry season is going on right now. Which means we are at a higher risk for wildfires. 

You may think you know the proper safety tips and procedures in each of these topics, but it never hurts to reaffirm that information and keep it fresh in your mind. Check out floridadisasters.org for more information. Stay safe Florida!
