Emergency Duties for Top Down Flood damage in Pensacola Homes

7/15/2019 (Permalink)

We know how to kick that water back where it belongs.

SERVPRO is always here for your Pensacola floods.

In extreme weather conditions, parts of your home may become damaged by falling branches or other debris. This fallen debris can become a flooding issue if windows, skylights, or doors are broken, resulting in significant amounts of rainwater pouring in. It's normal to consider flooding issues as primarily affecting the ground levels of your property, but often rainwater can enter through the top of a property and works its way down. 

Our service is available to attend to flood damage in Pensacola and the surrounding area. We operate emergency call-outs with local technicians available on call during storm seasons or periods when adverse weather conditions are expected. By using our service, you can expect expert assessment and remediation of structural contents as well as insulation or sheetrock, which can become waterlogged. 

Insulation materials often must be assessed thoroughly to avoid secondary water issues like microbial growth. These porous materials become waterlogged quickly and, in most cases, must be replaced. SERVPRO can remove affected insulation and replace it relatively inexpensively. We can also bag up the removed insulation to take with us at the end of service for safe disposal. 

As water moves down through the property, you may find it enters the wall, and floor, cavities. This migration of water can be a danger, as prolonged exposure to moisture can at best result in microbial issues or at worst weaken the structure itself. It is not uncommon for wooden flooring to become warped by excessive exposure to moisture. 

SERVPRO technicians can remove water from cavities by drilling small holes in walls or floors. This action creates air passages which allow water to evaporate. We speed up the process by attaching flex hoses to rapid air movers and circulating heated air at rapid speeds through the cavity. Using a moisture meter helps us to determine how long to carry out this procedure, and whether or not it has been successful. 

Top-down flooding can cause severe issues in your home, contact SERVPRO of West Pensacola at (850) 469-1160 for emergency assistance.
