Levels of Water damage caused by storm
When we receive a call to help with flood damage, we can never be sure how severe the damage is until we arrive on-scene to evaluate the situation. Different levels and volumes of flood waters can turn into drastically different damage cleanup and restoration processes, so we must be flexible and able to accommodate any scenario in a timely manner. We look for these following signs of damage to determine how extensive the problem is.
A consistent indicator of some of the most severe flood damage is the presence of standing water. When water remains in your home at a measurable depth, it can begin to cause expensive and permanent damages to the structure of the building. Alert us if any standing water remains in the building so that our primary response teams can bring water extraction pumps and respond Faster To Any Size Disaster.
We expect flooring materials to be soaked as a result of flood damage, but when the walls of your home have sustained significant damage, this may be a sign of additional problems that require a more thorough investigation to identify. Sometimes, when water reaches a substantial depth and later recedes, it can still create pockets of moisture in the walls of your home that degrade materials and can cause mold issues later on. SERVPRO technicians use advanced moisture detection tools such as infrared imaging devices and hygrometers to identify these wet areas and treat them accordingly.
Although the exterior of your home may be much more resistant to the effects of flood damage than interior areas, it can still sustain significant damage during a storm. We can help with repairs and restorations that may be necessary to leave the exterior of your home looking "Like it never even happened."
