How Does SERVPRO Handle Floodwater in Brandon Homes?
Brandon Homes with Flood Damage Can Count on SERVPRO for Professional Storm Cleanup
Storms can bring heavy rain, strong winds, and flash flooding. Homes can get flooded fast. The floodwater that enters the home is considered black water. It is highly contaminated with everything from debris to bacteria. SERVPRO professionals understand how to deal with biohazardous water.
Powerful Tools Restore Homes to Pre-loss Condition
When Brandon homes experience flood damage, it is vital to seek professional flood restoration services quickly. The contaminated water is a health risk, and the microorganisms rapidly increase. Letting it sit is not a good idea. The moisture can also cause secondary damage. Water is caustic and destroys structural elements such as wood over time. Mold is another example of secondary damage. We come on the scene prepared to mitigate the situation. We use:
- PPE – We use the proper PPE to work with black water. Homeowners should never try to clean this up on their own.
- Antifungals and Disinfectants – SERVPROXIDE is an excellent example of EPA-approved products we used to sanitize homes.
- Professional Water Extraction Tools – Trash pumps, truck-mounted pumps, and submersible pumps are used depending on the flood situation to extract water fast.
- Commercial Air Movers and Dehumidifiers – Drying the facility is a precise science. You need the correct ratio of air movers to dehumidifiers and our techs are well-trained in what to do.
Further water restoration takes place in the form of controlled demolition, removing debris, and repairing the home. You can count on SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview for high-quality water damage services. Contact us at (813) 741-3473 for more information.
