Severe Flood Damage in Raleigh May Require a Temporary Move-Out, but SERVPRO Can Help

Sometimes, severe flood damage like what we saw with Hurricane Dorian can cause enough damage to your home to render it temporarily unlivable. While SERVPRO can reverse the damages and make your home look "Like it never even happened," the possibility remains that you may need to move out of the home temporarily. Here are some of the ways that our technicians can make that a more comfortable and faster process.

The Initial Scoping

One of the first things we do after starting work on severe flood damage in Raleigh after a hurricane like Dorian is to accompany you through the home to identify restorable contents. While many things may prove to be unsalvageable in the aftermath of a hurricane, you may be surprised at how much of your home is restorable to its original appearance without replacing anything. During this time, we can identify valuables and items that you'd prefer to take with you if you decide to move out of the home temporarily. From these careful evaluations, we construct cost estimates for both the structure and belongings to make sure that your insurance company covers as much as possible.

Packing Up and Moving Out

With our help, packing up your belongings and transporting them to a temporary residence is easy and fast. Depending on the situation, we may handle the entire process ourselves or bring in a local moving company to assist us in this work. We conduct a thorough inventory of all your belongings before moving them so that any breakages or lost items can be identified and replaced at no additional cost.

Moving Back In

Once SERVPRO restoration professionals have finished drying out and sanitizing your water damaged home, you can begin the process of moving back in. We handle your belongings either through our personnel or an approved and insured local contractor, and typically try to set your move-back to the earliest possible date. Some restorations may be ongoing when you move back in, but your home is guaranteed to be safe and livable once we give you the go-ahead.
