All Flood Damage in Raleigh Homes Needs an Immediate Response

10/21/2017 (Permalink)

Take precautions against flooding in your home. But if you experience floodwaters entering your residence, contact SERVPRO for drying out services.

SERVPRO Technicians Respond Quickly and Help Prevent Secondary Damages Such as Mold From Forming

Even without being on the coastline, the weather in inland areas can reflect the weather nearer the ocean. This includes the Raleigh area, and when this happens, residences in our area often suffer weather-related problems.

One of these problems that homeowners might experience includes flood damage in Raleigh. This year, because of the increased amount of tropical storm activity, the chances seem more significant than in previous years for this type of specific problem.  

Flooded homes need immediate and professional mitigation services to remain protected. Some homeowners believe waiting for the season to pass can provide cost-savings but this can result in the opposite, instead. Increased financial strains occur because damages spread easily, increasing quickly, in a home sans timely mitigation.

Instead of waiting for the end of the worst weather, realizing that much of it may never affect the properties in our area, including your home, rendering a wait-and-see approach costly instead of paying off with financial savings. Assuming otherwise and waiting to mitigate the already existing damage from flooding ensures that any existing damage inside your home increases, spreads, and develops secondary issues.   

SERVPRO wants to help you keep overall costs low and manageable by providing timely mitigation for all of the issues your home currently faces. As we work to remove damaged materials, clean areas infiltrated by flood waters, and reduce the overall humidity inside your home, we can provide you tips that protect your property against future flooding disasters. There is no reason to wait for the season to pass before performing the work that can keep mold from growing or drywall from disintegrating.

Even though we can never prevent any disasters from occurring, having first-hand knowledge of your home can provide us with the information needed to diminish possible damages. Following through can save homeowners from experiencing more significant losses than necessary during future flooding events.  

Tips that might work can include keeping valuables, such as electronics and heirlooms, and perishable items, mainly foodstuffs, in higher-than-normal locations until the season passes. Sandbags placed around your property's perimeter can also provide some protection for short-lived flooding events. Having already filled sandbags ready before such events can save an enormous amount of time while keeping your family less-stressed about such circumstances.

Always ready to help you with both small and enormous disasters, SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest can be contacted by calling their local number, (919) 790-1222. Flood damage can leave your home in unlivable condition, but we can help reverse any flood damage present.
