Severe Storms, Flooding, and Your Shreveport Home
Severe Storms Can Cause Flooding in Your Shreveport Home!
Heavy rains that fall in Shreveport can quickly lead to dangerous flash floods requiring evacuating people from their homes. Unfortunately, you may find yourself returning home to a house flooded with extremely dirty Category (Cat) 3 Black Water. It is risky to attempt to clean up your home on your own. Without professional assistance, it is easy to make mistakes and potentially cause further damage to your home. Luckily, SERVPRO technicians can assist you with restoring your home as you go through the recovery process.
SERVPRO technicians are experienced when it comes to flood water removal in Shreveport homes, and can quickly arrive at your home to begin the mitigation process. Time is of the essence when it comes to removing flood water. Although many floods already consist of Cat 3, Black Water, flooding due to rain drenching a room in your home may result in flooding from Cat 2 or Gray Water. Cat 2 flood water can degrade to Cat 3 water if not removed within a few days of entering your home, making the restoration process much more difficult. Fortunately, our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified professionals could assist you in the efficient removal of flood waters through the use of large pumps and industrial grade wet vacs.
After removing the floodwater from your home, our techs can begin the decontamination and drying processes. We can use high volume air movers to draw moisture from your walls and floors into the air and dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture from the air.
Note that should any upholstery or carpet absorb Cat 3 Black Water, they must be thrown out. Preventing further damage is why it is important to quickly contact professionals who can mitigate the crisis in your home before it causes irreversible damage.
If you need flood water removal services after a massive storm, then contact SERVPRO of South Shreveport at (318) 865-4655. We are available 24/7 and can help you recover your home after a flood.
