Why SERVPRO The Real Truth Behind Pensacola Floodwater Removal Seeing your home flooded can be devastating. React quickly by contacting SERVPRO for water removal and remediation services.

Floodwater Extraction is not Simply a Case of Removing Water from your Pensacola Property

Knowing what kind of service you need to remove flood water properly relies on understanding how these damages occur and what the potential harms are. Flash floods can occur in virtually any environment but are usually the result of heavy rainfall or extreme weather conditions. That said, a backed-up sewage system can also be extremely damaging and require professional assistance.

We operate an exceptional service for Floodwater Extraction in Pensacola because we have spent time and money learning about the impact of these types of damage and how best to remove them. When it comes to removal, flood water requires attention to details as well as awareness of the potential harms it can cause. This assessment is necessary because, unlike other water removals, flood water can become inebriated with harmful pathogens.

When road overflows occur, water can absorb raw sewage and animal carcasses or herbicides, pesticides and other harmful toxins. We refer to water containing toxins as black water. Black Water is harder to extract because it is dangerous and poses a severe health risk. SERVPRO uses IICRC certificate holders, and guarantees all of our technicians hold the appropriate state and federal licenses for proper BioHazard removal.

These qualifications are essential to ensuring correct water extraction and disposal of substances in line with EPA guidelines. One of the first things we do on arrival is to expertly assess the condition of the water. Doing so allows us to proceed efficiently, whether that be truck-mounted or portable extraction units, submersible gas pumping of flood waters or deploying rapid air-movers.

In some case, water can be absorbed by subfloor or reside in wall cavities. Unlike other providers, SERVPRO technicians go through cross-training, meaning we can remove dry-wall or conduct remodeling work without you having to use multiple providers. As a company with access to national resources, we can promise to use the latest techniques and equipment to successfully mitigate losses, extract flood waters and make the damage "Like it never even happened."
