Flood Damage Inside a Pensacola Home can be Mitigated, Making Restoration Complete
Trust The SERVPRO Professionals To Help You During Your Time of Need
Flooding can happen because of super-heavy rains, especially when changes in the terrain exist because of recent construction in the area. Rushing over the surface, rain water absorbs whatever is small enough to be picked up and whisked along with it as it travels. When this type of water overtakes your home, it brings with it a multitude of hazards that must be eliminated to restore safe living conditions.
Pensacola homeowners whose homes sustain flood damage soon realize that cleaning up after a disaster like this entails much more than the typical do-it-yourself project requires. Not only does flooding affect a home's structure and contents, but the changes brought on by a flood include those affecting the quality of the air inside the home.
Flood damage can include the following problems for homeowners:
- deposits remaining afterward can contain deadly pathogens,
- dampness can allow microbes to grow prolifically in all areas of a home,
- structural weaknesses can develop or become more pronounced,
- peeling paint and disintegrating materials can pose choking hazards to toddlers,
- carpeting and other flooring can become so damaged they require replacement,
- moisture levels in the air can affect unflooded areas in the home similarly to flooded ones, and
- all food items that came in contact with floodwaters must be disposed of because the risk to health is extremely high.

Part of our job is to make sure that humidity levels are completely re-established as they should be and that preventative methods are carried out to keep future issues regarding mold and mildew minimized as much as possible.
