When A Flood Causes Damage To Your Merritt Island Home Call Our Experts
Living Adjacent To The Atlantic Ocean Can Lead To Flood Damage Inside Your Merritt Island Home
Intense storms can brew on the waves of the Atlantic ocean and cause flood damage to homes along the shore. Heavy rains and winds can lead to rushing waters in the streets and debris riding in the currents. Tree branches, rocks, stop signs, and other large objects can shatter a window and allow thousands of gallons of water into your home. Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened in the case of your small home.
When your Merritt Island home suffers flood damage, it is essential for you to get help as swiftly as possible. The quicker the standing water is cleaned up, the less likely it is for the formation of mold damage to happen. Fortunately, there is help close at hand that can rush to your home.
While you wait for SERVPRO to arrive, you might wonder what you can do for your home to mitigate damage in the meantime. However, it is unwise to try and do any water removal on your own, as you do not know the state of the water that entered your home. Black water contains harmful substances such as bio-waste, chemicals, and even fuel. When it comes to flood water, it is always wise to stay away and let the professionals determine what needs to be done.
As SERVPRO arrives at your home, we can immediately begin to set up water removal equipment. With the sheer amount of water in your home, we can use a combination of portable submersible pumps, and truck-mounted wet/dry vacuums and extractors. Once the water is removed, SERVPRO can determine where any flood cuts need to be made to the drywall and if any floors need to be removed. Afterward, our water restoration techs can focus on using drying equipment to return the structure of your home to an appropriate level of dryness.
Once your home has been dried, a rebuild can happen. The rebuild can be done by a contractor that we can help you find. Afterward, your home can be returned to its pre-flooded state.
