Vulnerable Structural Components Could Allow Flood Damage to Your Shore Acres Residence
SERVPRO Gets to Work Quickly after a Flood to Prevent Further Damage to Your Home
By the time that flooding has begun to affect your Shore Acres home, you are already at significant risk for substantial damages that are as costly as they are time-consuming. The trouble with a scenario like this is that it is all too real for those that live in the line of harsh storm systems. Fortunately, you have a professional restoration outfit at your disposal to help you clean up the mess and prevent reoccurrence for future storms that might pass through.
Most people do not put much thought or concern into the ability of their Shore Acres homes to prevent flood damage until the disaster is underway. Only then do you think of the structural weaknesses and compromised points of the exterior of your home that currently allow water to pass through into your residence unabated. Fortunately, if you react quickly, this situation does not have to get more out of hand and damaging than it already is currently.
From the time that our SERVPRO professionals arrive at your home, we immediately get to work on identifying the vulnerable points which allow water to enter in. These areas get sealed up by varying methods depending on where in your house the damage originates. After this process gets completed, our IICRC certified technicians can set our sights on extraction. With higher volumes, pump trucks get used to pull the water from the affected area quickly, and this process gets finished with wet vacs fitted with extraction wands.
Drying the area is a critical component of the process, as this allows our SERVPRO team to inspect for structural damage and weakness. This process typically gets achieved using air movers and dehumidification equipment, though some specialty tools might be a requirement if the water has reached challenging areas like underneath flooring or inside of walls.
Flood damage to your home might be par for the course regarding those who live in this area, but it is never something you want to have to contend with in your own home. Trust in the experience and professionalism of our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg team to help you restore this damage quickly and bring your home back to the way it used to be. You can call us anytime you need us at (727) 522-0000.
