Therefor St. Petersburg Homes After Flash Flooding Disasters 

One of the most devastating disasters that impacts the St. Petersburg area is a flash flood. With so little warning to such a powerful event, homes and businesses can be quickly overwhelmed by the rushing water. You can see how devastating the aftermath of flooding can be through some of the portions of this video and the kind of scene that our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg typically arrives to find.

Emergency Services for Flooded Residences

As you might expect, whether it is a crawlspace or flooded main floor of the house, extraction is necessary to return the property to its original condition. Specific practices are essential withstanding natural floodwater, and much of our water removal and drying tools are introduced through informative videos we produced for the website. Our prompt response to these flash flood damages in the clip continues to make us leading technicians for:

Cleaning and Treating the Structure Against Greater Issues

Multiple shots throughout this short clip shows some of the common demolition and tear-out needed following a flood. From pulling up carpeting to bagging and discarding collapsed drywall, muck-out cleaning exposes potential structural hazards and reduces circulating particles and solids that might be hazardous.

Because of the threats of contamination and the potential presence of bacteria, secondary effects like microbial growth and mildewing are amplified. We account for the likelihood of mold when drying takes several days or more. Affected surfaces can be treated early to reduce the viability of mold organisms using them as hosts. When biocides are not the only approach necessary, we have a mold remediation contractor license and experienced technicians to remove spreading organisms.

Meeting the Needs of Insurance Providers

Some of this video clip shows our administrative staff on phone calls, and this is to showcase our level of communication with the customer and other entities involved. Flood protection is a level of home insurance that many coastal customers have paid for, so flood restoration in these properties means coordinating reconstruction and restoration with insurance adjusters. From the estimation to the execution, we keep all necessary parties apprised to progress.

Faster To Any Size Disaster

Because flash flooding does not just target residences alone, many of the St. Petersburg businesses have called upon our experienced team of professionals as well. Because we are a leading large loss provider for the region, we have several commercial-grade restoration tools at our disposal, such as units trailered behind our production trucks like:

  • Desiccants
  • Air Conditioners
  • Truck Extractors
  • Generators

We understand that entrusting your home to restoration professionals is a stressful situation, and that is why we commit to showing up promptly, with a professional appearance, and with the tools necessary to begin work as soon as possible. Our Green Fleet stays stocked with water restoration tools to begin extraction and water clean-up after a flood. Our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg team can make it “Like it never even happened.”
