SERVPRO Provides Expertise and Sophisticated Equipment for Restoration of Fire Damage in Boynton Beach
Boynton Beach bears the name of the founder Major Nathan S. Boynton, who visited the area in 1894 and was impressed by its year-round sunshine, which provided a perfect escape from his Port Huron hometown during winters. The natural splendor of the locale, with its pristine beaches, was another selling point for the area as a vacation location, prompting him to set up the Boynton Hotel, which served his family and other people seeking relaxation from biting winters elsewhere. Boynton also brought settlers from Michigan who loved the area because of the fertile land and favorable weather that supported large-scale production of vegetables and fruits such as tomatoes, pineapples, citrus, and mangoes. With the development of the Florida East Coast Railroad by Morris Flagler, the fruits and vegetables could be shipped by the ton, packed in crates to satiate the high demand all over the country.
The town underwent various changes in its formative stage. It was founded in 1898 when residents Byrd Spilman Dewey and her husband Fred filed the original plan at the Dade County courthouse. It was named Boynton town at that time and was incorporated in 1920. In 1931, part of the community broke away and used the name Boynton Beach. Later they changed the name of the breakaway area to Ocean Ridge, and Boynton town became Boynton Beach in 1941.
The area has thrived economically over the years for various reasons. In the early days, agriculture was the mainstay starting with the production of vegetables and fruits. The sandy soils along the coastal ridge favored pineapples. From the mid to late 1900s, dairy farming took over as the dominant economic activity since Boynton was the primary source of the milk consumed in Palm Beach County. The thriving dairy was partly due to the salty air that kept bothersome insects away from the cows. By 1970, dairy was deemed less profitable, so most of the land was converted to housing developments.
Boynton Beach Tourist Attractions
For an area whose first developments were sparked by its natural beauty, tourism is at the heart of most area activities. Several attractions provide perfect locations to visit or spend time. Some of the old attractions that made the area famous closed due to natural business attrition or other reasons. In some cases, alternative establishments have replaced the old ones, providing a few or many aspects that the old establishments offered.
- Museum 66 - Since one of the favorite ways to get to Boynton Beach is by taking a drive on I-95, motoring enthusiasts may look for automotive-related attractions in the area. One of the first attractions for auto buffs in Boynton Beach was James Melton's Autorama, which featured close to 100 antique automobiles focusing on different vehicle development periods. James Melton also loved the Opera - he was an accomplished tenor. Unfortunately, after he died in 1961, his museum closed down in 1962.
Currently, Museum 66, located on High Ridge Road, can satiate some of the thirst car enthusiasts have since they display various rare muscle cars at the museum. There is a space for events and a classic pinball arcade that people can enjoy while visiting the premises.
- Brenda's Birds - Visiting bird sanctuaries can be a great way to spend time exploring various species of exotic birds. The Waite Bird Farm, located on North Federal Highway, was established in 1947 and was a renowned attraction for visitors from all over the state. The farm featured many bird species as well as animals such as Alligators and monkeys. The construction of the Florida turnpike and the development of large stores and condominiums reduced the roadside facility's allure leading to its closure in 1978.
People interested in exotic birds can visit Brenda's Birds, one of the largest bird stores in the south Florida area. The family-owned facility started operations in 1992. Apart from the variety of species at the facility, services such as adoption, rescue, and grooming are also available.
Housing in Boynton Beach
Housing market statistics reveal the compelling story of the city's development. For instance, over 60% of the standing houses in the area were constructed between 1970 and 1999. Only 20% of the homes were built after 2000 while 17% were built between 1940 and 1969. The most prevalent type of house is the single-family detached home since 40.8% of the city's homes fall in this category, while 36% are apartment complexes. Homes in the area feature various architectural styles, including:
- Minimal traditional
- Mediterranean revival
How Do Fire Companies Help Boynton Beach Homeowners Take Care of Their Properties?
Various disasters can affect properties at any time. However, fire can wipe off homes, businesses, or historical monuments in an area such as Boynton Beach within a short time. Fire restoration companies such as SERVPRO help salvage valuable items and materials from the affected areas in the aftermath of a fire to restore properties to their preloss state.
Fire affects items differently, including depositing residues such as soot and ash on their surfaces, charring or burning them entirely. Salvage operations are possible when the damage is not significant. However, it might not be clear which items are damaged beyond repair from a general visit to a fire-damaged property. In some cases, such as when materials have wet smoke residues, it might be difficult to clean items even when there is no physical deterioration from flames or heat action. SERVPRO has IICRC certified fire restoration technicians who utilize various approaches to deal with the challenges, including:
- Isolating items into groups of salvageable, unsalvageable, and questionable items
- Performing physical or chemical tests to ascertain the types of fire residues
- Using specialized cleaning procedures such as soda blasting to remove stubborn residues or to clean unusual surfaces such as unfinished wood
With the assistance of professional fire restoration companies, it is possible to expedite restoration and reduce the cost of such undertakings.
SERVPRO of Boynton Beach is one of the premier fire restoration companies in Boynton Beach that responds promptly to distress calls after fire incidents. Call us at (561) 413-9754 whenever in need.

SERVPRO Technicians Ensure That Boynton Beach Properties Look and Feel “Like it never even happened.”
Boynton Beach is deeply entrenched in history and a modern-day paradise for tourists and locals alike. The city boasts a population of almost 80,000 based on 2019 data from the University of Florida. The settlement was initially founded during an 1894 land purchase by Civil War veteran Major Nathan Boynton after the railroad finished construction the same year. The town itself was officially founded in 1898 by Byrd and Fred Dewey and was later incorporated in 1920.
The first significant landmark in Boynton Beach was the Boynton Hotel, which from the late 1800s to the mid-1920s was a winter getaway for wealthy Northerners, including Michigander Nathan Boynton and his family. While the hotel has since been torn down, some traces of it remain.
Just north of the former hotel area, visitors can find the Boynton Beach Oceanfront Park, which features an exotic Brazilian walnut boardwalk that was implemented in 2011 to replace the recycled plastic installed in the 1990s.
Prominent people from Boynton Beach Include:
- De La Soul member and rapper/producer Vincent Mason
- Retired NFL quarterback Craig Erickson
- US Navy Seal Team Six sniper Howard E. Wasdin
- Golfer and 1928 US Open champion Johnny Farrell
- Professional wrestler Titus O’Neil
A History of the Boynton Beach Hotel
Boynton Beach’s iconic hotel was built at the behest of founder Nathan Boynton two years after his 500-acre land purchase. It was completed one year later, in 1897, by workers who primarily hailed from Michigan, Boynton’s home state. Most of these workers stayed to clear brush and farm crops, which helped establish what was, at that point, a community of fewer than 50 people.
The completed Boynton Beach Hotel featured enough room on the complex, which included several cottages, to house over 100 guests at a time. The only caveat was that traveling to the hotel posed some difficulty due to the lack of established roads in the area. With this in mind, Nathan Boynton had a shell rock road crafted known today as Ocean Avenue.
The Boynton Beach Hotel was a luxurious getaway for Northern tourists vacationing during the winter months that offered the following for guests:
- Food is grown on-site to feed guests, including a 30-acre plot for citrus trees and vegetables
- Luxurious dishes featuring such marine delicacies as dolphin and kingfish, as well as local game like quail, turkey, duck, and venison
- Hotel staff also rowed guests out to fish for their food if they so desired
The original hotel was torn down in 1925 to build a new and improved facility on the same grounds. These plans were ultimately derailed by the sudden end of the Florida land boom and a devastating hurricane the following year. Only two cottages remain from the original Boynton Beach Hotel, and the rest is now a private property.
Boynton Beach’s American Indian Mounds
A short distance west of Boynton Beach, tourists can find the most extensive collection of Native American ceremonial mounds in Palm Beach County. This mound cluster, located at the Agricultural Reserve, is home to a dozen mounds of various sizes, including a rectangular one over 20,000 square feet.
The three tribes closest to Palm Beach County were the Ais, the Tequesta, and the Jaega, the latter suspected to be the tribe that left these mounds behind. Carbon-14 dating traces the area back to as early as 600 BC. One unique feature of the mounds is that they are coated with sugar sand that does not appear native to the region.
In ancient times, southern Florida was not the most hospitable for settlement and agriculture due to the climate and topography, especially for indigenous Floridians. Their homes were often made of palmetto fronds. The Jaega tribe did very little farming and subsisted mostly on fishing, hunting, and foraging.
Historians suspect that the mounds were part of several encampments that where tribespeople lived and stored food. Another distinctive feature of the Jaega was their consumption of a highly-caffeinated ceremonial black tea made of Yaupon holly. It was given the nomenclature Ilex vomitoria by Europeans who tried it.
Unfortunately, by the eighteenth century, the Jaega people were ultimately displaced by enslavement and decimated by disease. The Seminole tribe, who originally hailed from Georgia, occupied the now-empty land in 1716.
What Can SERVPRO Do for a Water-Damaged Boynton Beach Home?
SERVPRO is among the premier water restoration companies Boynton Beach has to offer due to its community involvement, constant availability, and roster of highly-trained local technicians and staff. SERVPRO’s adherence to the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards ensure a consistently high standard of cleanliness for structures and contents.
Water-damaged carpet requires additional care to prevent delamination or separation of carpeting from the pad underneath. SERVPRO technicians employ several techniques to treat carpet depending on the depth and extent of the damage:
- Thoroughly-saturated carpet may be tented up after extraction so that air movers and dehumidifiers catch residual moisture on top of carpeting and underneath the pad. Technicians can also clean and dry subfloors if the damage is detected there via infrared imaging
- Extraction with carpet wands is highly efficient for light to moderate damage. However, for heavier saturation, SERVPRO techs can deploy rover vacuums that require the user’s weight to squeeze out additional water from carpeting during extraction
- Carpeting with odors can be treated with sprays and injection of deodorizers. Surface-level odors are treated with such tools as time-release odor control pellets, counteractant odor beads, and scented granules placed near ventilation intakes
If carpet delaminates, it is more cost-effective to replace than to repair. Fortunately, your local SERVPRO has extensive experience with reinstalling and reseaming carpets.

Are Examples of the Florida Scrub Ecosystem Found in the Park System?
Harken back to the time before the development of Boynton Beach as a top-notch community for families after the Second World War. Walkthrough and explore three conservation areas dedicated to preserving Florida scrub, a one-of-a-kind natural environment found in part within the city's park system. Some of the designated areas feature woody trees and shrubs such as sand pine scrub, scrubby pine flatwoods, giant wild pine, creating a mesic hammock, described as an evergreen hardwood and sometimes palm forest. Dozens of other plants of interest frequently found on the threatened or endangered lists also are in view from trails and noted during environmental education activities on the sites:
• Large-flowered rosemary
• Nodding pinweed
• Pine pinweed
• Curtiss' milkweed
• Twisted and banded air plant
• Scrub palmetto
• Sand spike moss
• Silk grass
Can Park-Goers See Fauna in Addition to the Wide Variety of Botanicals?
The Florida scrub also attracts many native zoological species that find food, water, and shelter in the area. As the scrub reasserts its hold, the reviewed native vegetation serves to increase the biodiversity the conserved space intends to support. Visitors have a chance to see the following animals and more when perusing the scrub reclamation areas:
• Gopher tortoises
• Migratory birds
• Green anoles
• Six-lined race runners
• Painted-lady butterflies
• Golden silk spiders
• Prairie warblers
• Great horned owls
• Ringneck snake
• Common gray fox
Why Is Conserving the Florida Scrub Ecosystem Essential?
Boynton Beach is fortunate to encompass the scrub environment's expanses, a vital link to the region's natural heritage. Scrub vegetation develops on the sandy ridges in the area, left behind by ancient shorelines. Preservation 2000 funds were provided through the Florida Communities Trust in the 1990s to obtain additional land to add to existing wild growth and help preserve the scrub's unique biodiversity. Even with the land acquisition, Palm Beach County retains less than two percent of its historic scrub environment. The city's oversight is of the highest importance to protect this treasure. Not only is the scrub a shelter for many reptiles, birds, mammals, and plants, it also acts to maintain and even increase underground drinking aquifers. When functioning as nature intended, the scrub vegetation also minimizes saltwater intrusion into the local drinking water reserves.
Where Are the Florida Scrub Areas in Boynton Beach?
Check out the Parks pages on the city's website to locate the scrub spaces. The scrub conservation areas currently include Rolling Green Scrub (not open to the public, but part of Ezell Hester Jr Community Park), Rosemary Scrub, and Seacrest Scrub. The lands purchased to reclaim and protect the scrub ecosystem now total over 70 acres. Administered as part of a county-wide natural areas system, Palm Beach County and Boynton Beach's Recreation and Parks Department share the oversight.
Do Natural Events and Human Negligence Make Impacts on the Scrub Conservation Areas?
A robust growth habit encourages the development and preservation of the drinking aquifer, as explained above. The tenacious ridge growth prevents erosion. Although this outcome is desirable, if the vegetation grows without bound, eventually, something needs to act as a brake. Not always a negative occurrence, the Florida scrub benefits from occasional fires. Fire clears out organic material that is dead or overgrown. Sometimes vegetative disease resolves best after a burndown of infected plants. Depending on the species, animals and plants can require the burning to thrive and reproduce, such as quail and scrub jays.
How Do Fires Start in the Florida Scrub Areas?
Sometimes a lightning strike can ignite a fire in the scrub's naturally dry and sandy environment. Human error can also cause a fire from grilling, smoking, or negligent use of matches and lighters. Occasionally county or park professionals determine that conditions suggest a prescribed burn as a management tool. Controlled fire activity rejuvenates the Florida scrub areas in the Boynton Beach part system and is a crucial tool for those who take care of the Rolling Green, Rosemary, or Seacrest Scrubs.

SERVPRO Focuses On Underlying Issues during Fire Restoration to Guarantee Boynton Beach Homeowners the Right Outcome.
Cleanup and other renovations are necessary after a fire incident affects your property. In case the damage seems minimal, you might be unsure whether to hire a professional restorer or rely on local solutions such as handymen. SERVPRO helps deliver convenient restoration services in Boynton Beach, eliminating any doubts you might have.
How different is fire restoration by a professional Boynton Beach firm?
Fire restoration takes more than fixing apparent issues such as the replacement of scorched materials and cleaning of affected areas. There might be hidden problems at the loss site, which can lead to problems in the future or even pose risks to anyone working at the site. Our SERVPRO technicians follow a comprehensive restoration approach that addresses all issues. The process involves steps such as:
- Assessing the degree of damage to materials
- Water removal or moisture management
- Isolation of unsafe areas
- Smoke and soot removal
What sort of assessment is necessary for fire damaged properties?
Although the effects of heat, smoke, and other combustion processes are readily identifiable, it is crucial to evaluate the loss site before starting the restoration. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate issues such as:
- The depth of charring
- Residue spread patterns
- Moisture levels in different sections of the house
Evaluating the loss helps determine which areas to prioritize and the resources necessary to complete the renovation. The evaluation also reveals risky areas such as unstable sections of the structure that might collapse during restoration. Sufficient information helps our SERVPRO technicians tailor the restoration process to suit the conditions created by the fire incident, thus delivering better outcomes.
SERVPRO of Boynton Beach strives to fix fire damage, "Like it never even happened." Call us at (561) 413-9754 to help.
