Flood Damage Cleanup After Storms in Your Raleigh Home

3/11/2018 (Permalink)

Make sure that you and your family are safe during a storm and possible flooding. After that, contact SERVPRO to safely dry out your property.

SERVPRO's Fast Actions After Flooding Can Help Prevent Secondary Damages From Forming

When a severe thunderstorm rolls through the Raleigh area, the risk for damage to property rises greatly as the heavy rains create water damage, plus flooding inside your home. Flooding from storms like this is a significant problem which requires a combination of methods to treat it correctly and protect your health. Unlike a typical burst pipe or a leaky roof, flood damage many times includes raw sewage which can complicate the process of remediation.
As soon as flooding happens in your home, you need to get in touch with us at SERVPRO so we can mitigate the flood damage in Raleigh and remove the flood water safely. Our team of experienced workers is specially trained and equipped to get the floodwaters out of your home quickly and dry your home back out.
As soon as we arrive at your home, we do a damage evaluation of your property. We give you an estimate on the progress which needs to be started before we initiate any cleanup work and give you the most precise approximation.
Once you consent to the quote, our SERVPRO staff can begin removing the flood water. We drain as much damaging water as we can by using industrial, truck-mounted pumps. Once this part of the process is done, the chances of hazardous mold growing lessen. We also target water by using advanced moisture detectors to find hidden water behind drywall and under flooring.
Once we drain the standing water, we use powerful fans and dehumidifiers to complete the drying process. Then, once the debris and water are removed, there can still be odors lingering in the air. Therefore, we clean and deodorize the affected areas to remove these odors.
Some cosmetic restoration may need to be done, as flooding can cause condensation on windows, scattered debris, peeling wallpaper, and stuck drawers or cabinets. We help you restore all these issues and more so that your home is fully restored to preloss condition.
SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest understands that flooding in your home in New Light, Six Forks, or New Hope is very stressful. However, when you contact us at (919) 790-1222, you can rest assured that you have called on the team that can help you get your home back.
