Our Professional Remediation Team Will Restore Your Bartow Home
Flooding Restoration for Your Bartow Residence
When flooding in Bartow is imminent, sandbagging is a good option for the first defense and slowing the water down. However, what can you do it minimize the damage when the rising river threatens your basement? There are three critical phases when it comes to water rising in your basement – a few inches of water, a few feet of water, or water which reaches your electrical panel.
No matter how severe the flooding in your Bartow home is, you want to contact a professional remediation company for help restoring your home. SERVPRO staff is well-trained and experienced, plus we have the right tools for the job. When you ask us for help with flood damage, you can expect to get the best skills and service possible.
When floodwaters enter your home, your priority is the electricity in your home. As everyone knows, water and electricity do not mix. That is why even before sandbagging, you need to be ready to secure your electrical system the best you can. If any appliances are sitting on the floor in your basement, raise them off the floor or take them to the upper floors if possible. If the waters have already entered, never go into the water to mess with your electrical circuit box, as you can be electrocuted. Exit your home, get everyone to safety, and then call professionals for help.
SERVPRO technicians always take safety precautions when dealing with a flooded home. We check for dangers before entering and always wear protective gear to protect us from possible contaminants such as chemical runoff and sewage.
We use truck-mounted pumps to remove as much of the standing water as possible before we can proceed with the drying process. Dehumidifiers and industrial fans help us to dry the affected area and the air in your home out to the normal levels of humidity. These machines are monitored daily to ensure the fastest drying times so we can prevent additional damage such as mold growth.
After the flooding, even if it appears safe, make sure you have an electrician inspect your wiring before turning anything back on which was wet. Resistance shorts can heat the wiring and cause a fire.
