Flood Damage Left Behind in St. Petersburg after a Hurricane Requires Specialized Services
Restoring Your Home After Flood Damage
After any storm, damages become more apparent than what they were as they happened. Many of the homes in St. Petersburg remained upright after weathering fierce storms and hurricanes in the past. The water washed in by wind and rain, as well as by rising tidal waters, was seen as minor flooding compared to the losses involving completely destroyed homes.
St. Petersburg's perfect weather rarely has storm-related flood damage, but for this and other catastrophes, you can contact SERVPRO technicians whenever needed. In the likely event that the power is off in the neighborhood, we supply our own. You and your family can depend on us to make everything “Like it never even happened.” Being your neighbors and living in the same area, we understand the stresses that disasters cause the people in our community.
Going beyond compassion toward others around us, we know that to help them as fully as possible, we need extensive and thorough training in remediating damaged homes. We hold certifications from the IICRC in many fields related to disaster clean up, including Commercial Drying (CDS) and Applied Structural Drying (ASD).
Flood damage can affect a home in a multitude of ways, none of which benefit the homeowners or their family members. Hurricanes manage to wreak damages in unexpected ways, some of which pose severe health effects. We remove all of these and ensure that even the microbial-laden residues no longer remain. Our measuring devices include those that detect microbial activity and the number of biological materials on surfaces. Used both before and after cleaning, we compare the results to ensure high standards of cleanliness to protect your family.
Carpets most likely need removal and replacement, so we prepare the floor by drying it out and removing any hazards that remain. These can also impede the installation process of new flooring later. Saturated walls also require replacement, although most ceilings can stay with little or no repairs. Stairs and banisters must dry quickly to avoid damage to the wood. Door and window frames and sliding tracks often warp from the wind's strength, requiring the installation of new ones.
No matter what it takes to restore your home, the friendly and professional technicians at SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg can perform the work. Contact us for the restoration of your home after a hurricane or storm-related flood damage takes its toll. (727) 522- 0000
