A Few Tips to Help Navigate Through Merritt Island Flood Damage Restoration
Flood Removal Services for Soaked Residences on Merritt Island
Flooding can happen at almost any time to homes on Merritt Island, especially in lower areas. Recent construction and changes in landscaping on your property or neighboring properties can cause floodwater to pour into your home.
Residents can rely on SERVPRO for experienced technicians for flood removal services in Merritt Island. Our technicians receive intensive education and training and earn various IICRC certificates in how to handle flooding situations. From your floors and up, we understand what needs attention, and in which order, to make your home “Like it never even happened.”
Flood removal services start with extraction teams removing the water and picking up any debris. We understand that your home may still not have electrical power when we arrive, so we bring generators to power our equipment and machinery. Removing the water with our pump truck and smaller units both require power. Other, smaller units, like our moisture meters and infrared imaging cameras, run on batteries, which we keep charged at all times.
Silt can cause a great deal of havoc in cleaning things up, so we use specially equipped vacuums. These have HEPA filters that keep any pathogens from escaping into the air. Although damp, this does not weight these microorganisms from becoming airborne. Like mold and its spores, microorganisms from a flood can cause health effects. Because we also want to protect ourselves, we wear personal protective equipment (PPE) while we work on flood removal efforts in your property.
Thorough flood removal work helps protect your property from the effects of such microorganisms, including mold and mildew. Many homes experience a surge in the growth of these microbes, but flood removal and consistent drying methods help keep such hazards to a minimum.
Although we remove the majority of flood debris during our initial time on the job, cutting away saturated materials can create additional debris. We work in teams and continually bag the waste up and remove it from your home, keeping the area free of any unnecessary hazards.
