Have A Flood Damage Plan During Hurricane Season
SERVPRO Is There to Help During Flooding Emergencies
Hurricane season, in theory, runs from June through late November. The dates involved are not as important as the response you seek for damage done to your home after the storm. SERVPRO crews train for these situations and are ready to implement a post-storm plan that works to return your home to pre loss condition.
The heavy winds, torrential rains, and storm surge that mark summer and fall storms can inflict serious flood damage to your Daytona Beach home. You need a series of integrated steps to eradicate the water, dry out the structure, and put things back in place after the cleanup and drying out completed. Our experienced water removal and restoration staff are familiar with your struggles and have proven strategies to move from overwhelmed with flood water to “Like it never even happened.”
Flood water linked to storm activity has a high risk of contamination. You are attacked from both backed up storm sewers and salt and rain water that flowed across and through a wide range of dangerous substances before it found your home. Human waste, fertilizers, animal carcasses and waste, automotive residues from streets and parking lots, and more are just some of the unhealthy things you may find floating in your lower levels. Our fast and professional response helps manage the threats this gray or black water poses.
SERVPRO uses truck mounted pumps and water extractors to clear the standing water. The contaminated nature of the mixture removed requires special disposal. We follow all local codes when discarding the water far from your home. Our goal is always restoration, so we use professional antimicrobials to sanitize floors, walls, ceilings, and the structural elements of your home rather than demolition. Our crew takes moisture readings and positions high-efficiency air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out space, checking for and draining any hidden pockets of retained water.
If the affected area contains furnishings and personal belongings we help you make informed decisions about what to keep and dry and what must be thrown out. We typically stage movable items in a nearby and dry garage or another shelter to give you and the team time to review the soaked articles. SERVPRO has available freeze drying services for important papers and pictures, but care must be taken to get those items frozen quickly and dealt with later.
