What Should I Expect During Flood water Removal in My Pensacola Home?

8/11/2020 (Permalink)

Home in flood water After your home suffers flood damage, you need a team of professionals to assist you with cleanup. Call SERVPRO right away! We are always available.

SERVPRO technicians communicate with you during every phase of the water loss restoration process.

Among water loss events that can occur in a home, flood damage is one of the most devastating and costly. The water can recede as rapidly as it enters a home, and the fact it wicks into walls and seeps under flooring makes it vital to begin the extraction and cleanup process immediately to limit the loss of contents and structural elements.   

What are Common Losses After Flood Damage in a Home?  

As the SERVPRO techs clean up the flood damage in your Pensacola home, numerous actions get taken to lessen the loss such as:   

  • Controlled demolition to remove damaged building materials
  • Pack out of contents for cleaning off-site
  • Removal of baseboards and sometimes build-in elements such as cabinetry, carpet and padding and insulation within walls

All of these actions inhibit any further water damage to the structure and allow the techs to extract any remaining moisture and move on to the drying phase of the mitigation. Because this type of water requires unique methods due to probable bacteria or other contaminants, it needs careful disposal. With their comprehensive education in handling this type of mitigation with their Biohazard #17-64-1560497 certifications, the techs know how to get rid of the water and remain within the municipal laws for managing wastewater. 

Do I Need to Worry About Mold?

Substantial training in mold remediation #MRSR2768 gives the techs the knowledge for early warning signs of a mold infestation and the ability to apply proactive treatments to the loss area to ensure that mold colony establishment is not an issue. 

SERVPRO of West Pensacola at (850) 469-1160 as soon as possible after flood damage. The trained, certified technicians arrive quickly and use their advanced equipment to dry the property and return it to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened."
