Making a Fast Recovery from Flood Damage in St. Petersburg
Team SERVPRO Quickly Arrives at Your Home, Ready to Tackle the Flooding Scenario
Because unexpected flooding can strike at any time in St. Petersburg, it helps to know that experienced and professional crews can help mitigate the damage, no matter how bad things seem. Placing things at a higher level of the home to save them from the incoming water can help calm homeowners, but safety should always remain a primary concern for everyone involved.
When a home or other property suffers from flood damage in St. Petersburg, getting the water out starts the recovery process, but it alone never suffices. Floods bring dirty water into your property, meaning your home needs cleaning and sanitizing, drying out, and removal of debris.
Debris comes in many sizes and includes both inert materials, such as plastics, organic-based substances, and chemicals. Leaving these inside your home allows the disaster to literally grow. Only physical removal can adequately handle this aspect of flood damage. We handle such debris as the organic waste it mingles with requires - double bagging while wearing personal protection equipment.
The professionals at SERVPRO know how overwhelming a flood feels, so we train in all areas of flood damage recovery. Our extensive training not only prepares us for coping with the tasks involved in mitigating flooding and other types of disasters that threaten to take over the homes in our community, but it also earns us our IICRC certificates.
Floors often require substantial care immediately after a flood. Not only do they become saturated, but the silt and other microscopic debris that becomes lodged within carpets, wood floors and under tiles can create problems if still present at installation time for new flooring systems.
Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) helps in this area of flood damage mitigation by using ozone and hydroxyl machines. These produce gasses which quickly bond with leftover particles, particles that can produce foul odors. Accomplishing both a cleaner home and eliminating odors, your home soon looks and smells "Like it never even happened" again.
