After A Flood Causes Damage In Your Bartow Home, Our Experts Are Here To Help!
Flood Damage Restoration For Your Bartow Home
Whether it is a flash flood or just heavy rains, when massive amounts of water come at your property in Bartow all at once, it can create a serious issue. You can not be prepared for every situation that can wreak havoc to your home, but it's good to have a plan for what to do should such an event occur.
Two essential things you need to do as a homeowner is to make sure you have sufficient flood insurance, and also know whom to call in the event of a flood. SERVPRO is always standing by to deal with flood damage in Bartow, and with our trained and certified technicians, your home can be restored so that it looked “Like it never even happened.”
After a flood situation in your home, SERVPRO technicians need to eliminate any safety hazards from the job site. Flood waters can be contaminated with sewage, debris, and chemical runoff. Signs are posted, and we wear the appropriate protective gear while we work, including full-body suits boots, respirators equipped with P100/organic vapor cartridges, rubber gloves, and protection for our eyes.
As we enter your home, we spray an EPA-registered disinfectant over the affected areas. We may also need to use containment if any contaminants have spread to unaffected areas. If needed, we remove any standing debris and silt, using rakes and shovels. Debris and silt are thought to be hazardous waste if they have any hazardous or regulated materials such as asbestos or lead.
We evaluate all the contents of your home to determine if they can be restored and decontaminated or if they have to be removed and replaced. Decisions like this depend mainly on the porosity of the material and the kind of contamination. Many times, in a flooding disaster, carpeting, and any drywall affected needs to be replaced. We can cut the drywall up to where the water level was and replace what was cut out.
