Flood Damage in your Home? Our Rapid Response Team is here to Help

2/11/2019 (Permalink)

The type of issues that households sustain during a natural flood or backed up sewer always require professional assessment and remediation. The water can often be hazardous to your health, even if it may appear clean. When water sits it can become increasingly toxic; it is, therefore, necessary to approach a professional service to help remove said water and dispose of any waste in line with state and federal regulations.

Homes with Flood Damage in Sacramento can rely on us to provide an urgent service. SERVPRO operates call-lines 24 hours a day and can send a rapid response unit to your location within four hours of notification of loss. A shorter time frame is essential due to the dangerous nature of flood water which can be toxic or steadily weaken structural components like ceilings, floors, and walls.

A SERVPRO technician can begin making your property safe immediately on arrival. Removing hazardous materials, electrics and checking for structural weaknesses should only be carried out by a qualified professional. Once the affected area is deemed safe to enter, your technician can begin to remove the water using submersible gas-powered pumps.

Some contents and structure in the home can be decontaminated and restored. Other parts may need replacement. SERVPRO employees operate on a restore over replace remit, however in cases where grey or black water are present items like carpets, subfloor mats and other porous materials need to be disposed of in designated waste removal sites. Your technician can pack these items up and take them away for proper disposal at the end of service.

Once the removal of contaminated materials is complete, we can pressure wash the affected area, apply sanitizers and remove harmful bacteria. Standing water migrates fast so we use moisture meters to discover where water may be residing and dry it. Rapid air movers and dehumidifiers are placed at the end of service to ensure no secondary flood damage like mold growth occur after we leave.

Our rapid response unit can help you in an emergency, contact SERVPRO of Marion, Adair & Russell Counties at (270) 402-8170 to schedule the evaluation.
