Living Alongside the Gulf of Mexico Can Leave Your Goulding Home Vulnerable to Flood Damage During a Tropical
Storm Loss Mitigation Needed? Call SERVPRO for Help in Goulding
Seaside homes are some of the most luxurious properties one can own, but they do come with their risks, such as higher chances of sustaining flood damage. Because of your city's unique geographic position adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico, a severe storm is more of a matter of time rather than just a possibility. However, the week that you are away on a trip to spend a summer holiday with your family is the worst possible timing for your own home.
The storm brought violent winds and waters, both quickly forcing their way inside your Goulding residence, causing flood damage to your property. The floodwaters settled in your living, dining room, and kitchen, the lower floors of your home. The dirty water mixed with chemicals and sewage has ruined your carpets and compromised your furniture and belongings. Upon returning home, and finding all of the damage, the best thing that you can do for is to call for professional help.
SERVPRO can travel to your home swiftly after your call and arrive with the necessary equipment to combat the flood damage inside. The very first step is to get the standing water out; the faster it is gone, the sooner that SERVPRO can investigate the damage to your floors. Our IICRC-certified technicians can use submersible pumps and wet/dry vacuums to remove the stagnant water from your property promptly.
Because the water that invaded your home was classified as black water, SERVPRO must remove your carpets. Even cleaned, there is a chance that they can still contain the harmful pathogens and chemicals they were exposed too. Once the carpets are gone, SERVPRO can begin to thoroughly clean and disinfect the floors and walls, as well as your belongings.
While the area is being cleaned, our technicians can set up a drying system to handle the excess moisture that is impacting your floors, walls, cupboards, and furniture. Desiccant dehumidifiers, ventilation fans, and air movers can all be placed in specific locations to promote airflow and evaporation. Once your home has been returned to an acceptable moisture level, documented, and you are satisfied, then our job is done.
Do not hesitate if a tropical storm causes flood damage inside your residence. Get in contact with SERVPRO of West Pensacola by calling (850) 469-1160. Whenever the time, we are open and able to take your call.
