Flooding and Hazardous Debris Are Part of Hurricane Irma Damage in Pensacola
Water Damage in Pensacola Is Mitigated with Fast SERVPRO Help
The outside of your home might not reflect how things fared on the inside. Many homes in Pensacola received little damage to their exteriors during this hurricane season. Flooding affected many homes and other structures, however, because of the amount of water forced in by the latest hurricanes.
Homes in Pensacola in low-lying areas received tidal water in addition to the rain, adding to any hurricane damage. Ocean water can hold debris of its own, and then pick up even more as it travels from the beach to your home. While you can see much of whatever came in with the water, the possibility of hidden debris remains high.
To solve this problem, we carefully pump out the water, ensuring that our hoses remain free of flotsam that can block them as they suction water out of your home. We continually remove debris as it becomes visible. After we remove most of the water, we can begin rolling up carpeting for disposal. Being absorbent, carpeting, and especially padding, can harbor pathogens and microscopic particles. Left in your home, these can create foul odors that never disappear. Removing the carpeting and padding prevents this from happening to your home. It also greatly increases the rate of evaporation and drying.
When we finish removing the carpeting and padding, we can start drying out your home's interior with air movers and heaters. Floors must contain standard levels of moisture before installing new carpet. We cut away walls close to the floor so we can install new drywall. Moldings and kickboards might warp if exposed to water for lengthy periods, so we discuss restoration and replacement options with you first. Each partial demolition if needed, is with you and if you have insurance coverage, with your carrier.
