Flood Damage Can Also Affect Your Mulberry Home's Patio and Pool
SERVPRO Provides Restoration and Clean Up After a Flood or Tropical Storm
Having a pool in Florida is one of those things that many take for granted, and caring for it is one of the chores that just comes with the territory. When a flood happens, homes aren't the only aspects of American life that end up waterlogged. Pools can also become victims of floods.
When your pool and patio have been submerged under flood waters in Mulberry, don't add to the flood damage already present by draining your pool. While you might think draining your pool to dispose of the contaminated water should be the first thing to do, it actually isn't. You can cause your pool to pop out of the ground from massive hydrostatic pressure, from the oversaturated soil. After a flood, water levels in drenched lawns can remain high for long periods of time. There are other steps you should take to restore your pool, and we can help with the process. Do you have residential flood insurance?
As our SERVPRO techs clean your patio of contaminants left behind by the floodwaters, we can rid your pool of any solid debris. This removal will help prepare the surface so you can add the required treatments. One of the first treatments should be to bind the particulates, so these settle to the bottom of the pool, making it more efficient to use the pool vacuum. The filtration system should not be turned on until it, and any other electric equipment has been cleared as safe to use by a certified electrician. After the particulates have been eliminated, then it is effective to begin shocking your pool and checking pH levels. SERVPRO suggests calling in a pool service if the cleanup appears overwhelming.
Patio furniture and pool toys that were left outside should be cleaned and sanitized before they are used again. Debris in the yard should also be cleared away and disposed of properly. We can assist you with accomplishing this task, ensuring that your exterior living space is once again a healthy environment for your family and guests.
