Flash floods can cause billions of dollars worth of damage to properties across America every year.

Returning Your Possessions To Pre-Loss Conditions After Flood Damage In Raleigh

Flash floods can cause billions of dollars worth of damage to properties across America every year. Heavy rainfall can be a contributing factor causing city sewer systems to back up and overflow. Nearby road floods can flow downstream into the lower levels of your property and cause extensive damage to your possessions or structure. Due to the harmful nature of floodwater, you need professional help to get your home back to preloss conditions.

Typically the impact of flood damage in Raleigh homes depends on the type of water. SERVPRO groups flood water into three distinct categories. The first is white water which may contain odors and microbial fungi but poses no significant risk to your health. The second is grey water which may have herbicides or pesticides present. The third and most dangerous type is black water which presents a biohazard risk by containing raw sewage or other pathogens.

A black water flooding issue requires expert help. It may seem prudent to remove your furniture from the affected area but doing so can be reckless. SERVPRO has external facilities where we can store your possessions and prepare them for deep cleaning. You need to contact us on our 24-hour emergency line to arrange a service to your home. We can arrange a service within one hour of notification of loss and arrive onsite within four hours.

The pathogens present in black water mean we may have to remove areas of drywall as well as the proper disposal of saturated subfloor mats or sheetrock inside wall cavities. Possessions though can benefit from thorough cleaning using industrial Esporta washing machines. Valuables can be sent to our specialists for ultrasonic remediation. SERVPRO work to a restore over replace mentality which means we use all equipment at our disposal to help return your items to preloss conditions.

Salvaging possessions is part of our remit in restoration. Contact SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest at (919) 790-1222 today.
