Whom Can I Call When a Storm Causes Flood Damage to my West Monroe Home?
SERVPRO Can Offer Your West Monroe Home Expert Flood Damage Restoration Services!
Storms can bring troublesome rain, lightning, and wind to your neighborhood and cause significant damage to your home with little notice. Heavy rainfall can bring flash flooding to your street, and that water can contain harmful substances within it, making it unsafe for human contact. So, what should you do when black water gets into your house because of a storm?
Our techs are expertly trained and can help you clean up the flood damage in your West Monroe home. We use advanced technology for our restoration services, and we can wear safety gear when handling the black water inside your home. As an example, imagine that flash flooding caused the entryway of your home to flood with a few inches of water. Luckily, when your home was designed, the entrance was aesthetically designed a step lower than the proper flooring.
In this scenario, the first step our technicians would take is to remove the standing water from your entryway. We can use advanced technological devices, such as wet/dry vacuums, to draw out the water quickly. Furthermore, we can also use thermal imaging technology to locate any hidden water, such as in between wall cavities.
Blackwater can permanently contaminate some materials in your home, such as fabrics. Any welcome mats or drapery in the area cannot be safely restored and must be thrown away. Once the water is gone, we can clean your entryway with anti-bacterial and antifungal cleaning agents. We want to return your residence to you, feeling like it did before the flood. Our methodology includes taking pre-emptive measures, such as antifungal agents, to help prevent further issues like mold development.
