They Can Hire SERVPRO for Flood Damage Repair in Forbing

The damage that storms cause is one of the most challenging things to recover from. They can cause significant damage, which is seen in the form of fallen debris and trees that strong winds blow against structures. Heavy downpours during a storm can also cause flooding that adversely affects flooring, walls, and structural elements of the house.

Storm and flood damage in Forbing homes can lead to insurance claims, and it is essential to document everything properly. SERVPRO can assist you in accounting for everything the storm ruined and restore your residence to its former condition whenever possible. The cleanup and repair process varies based on the severity of the damage, but the basic steps of our storm restoration process include:

  • Inspect your home and offer a written estimate for disaster cleanup.
  • Extracting floodwater from the home.
  • Removing debris and contaminants.
  • Drying the property.
  • Performing post-construction.

Floodwater is often contaminated with chemicals and microorganisms like bacteria and fungi. When restoring your home, our SERVPRO technicians can establish engineering controls so that contaminants do not spread to the uncontaminated areas of your home. Contaminants can spread when we start working because of foot traffic, air movements, equipment movement, and debris removal. Our crew reduces this cross-contamination by using suitable engineering controls like establishing negative pressure and building containment. To erect or build containment, we use 6-mil polyethylene plastic to seal off the openings or doorways of affected areas.

Within the affected area, our SERVPRO technicians place an air filtration device to blow air outside the building. This kind of setup controls airflow in the area. It allows clean air to come into the affected area, but contaminated air cannot get into the unaffected air. This is called negative pressure in the restoration industry.

Our SERVPRO team uses portable extractors to remove floodwater. We also place drying equipment like air movers to deliver rapid airflow to damp surfaces. We also position dehumidifiers to deliver dry, warm air to the affected area.
