Hurricane Season Can Cause Flood Damage to Your St. Petersburg Home
Team SERVPRO Makes Your Flooded Home Our Priority After a Call for Drying Out Services
Hurricane season is notorious in Florida for causing flood damage to businesses and homes alike, especially in cities that are settled coast-side. These tropical ocean-based storms hit hard and bring thousands of gallons of rain in a small allotment of time. In fact, some of these floodings can be so bad that streetways become flooded to the point where it is no longer possible to use cars or walk outside. However, in the case of your home, the storm was not nearly as devastating.
Most people take a summer vacation when they can, however, needing to schedule an emergency return flight the day after a hurricane causes flood damage to your St. Petersburg home can be a nauseating concept. Coming home and finding your single-level home flooded up to your knees is never something that anyone wishes to come back to. It is essential that when you discover the flooding inside of your home, you call for professional remediation services as swiftly as possible.
When you call SERVPRO, our techs make it a priority to arrive at your residence within hours. We understand that time is a crucial factor in remediation and promptly getting to your property helps ensure a successful job. Upon arrival at your property, SERVPRO can begin to discuss a plan to remediate the damage to your furniture, walls, floors, carpets, drapes and other belongings. Seeing as the flood is house-wide, our technicians can recommend for you to stay elsewhere while we attempt to remediate the damage.
The first job for our SERVPRO techs is to get the standing water out of your house. We can use tools such as submersible pumps, wet/dry vacuums, and extractors to remove the water at a faster pace. Extractors are particularly useful with carpets, fabric furniture, and drapes as they have a heating element that helps dry the material as we draw the moisture out.
Once we manage to get all of the stagnant water out of your home and help reduce the chances of microbial growth, we can use moisture meters to determine the level of dryness throughout your home. Should you need further moisture-reduction, SERVPRO can set up tools such as ventilation fans and dehumidifiers to help eliminate the excess.
If a hurricane causes flood damage to your house, never hesitate or wait to call for help. Reach out to SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg by calling (727) 522-0000. Day or night, we are always ready to take the job.
