SERVPRO Professionals Help Manage the Burden of Flood Damage Recovery in Jacksonville

Your house can flood within minutes, whether from rising groundwater, leaking roof or other sources. However, the repairs and cleanup necessary to restore the property to its preloss state can take many days or weeks. The burden is higher if the affected Jacksonville homeowners choose to handle the restoration on their own, or hire restorers with limited resources. Our services are IICRC certified, which means we have enough resources to help lift most of the burden off your shoulders.

Usually, an incident of flood damage in Jacksonville leaves many areas around the home in need of attention.  For example, there is a need to remove standing water or move items. There is also a need to fix any parts of the structure affected by the water and cleanup of any soils left in the wake of the flooding. Since our SERVPRO technicians work as a team, it is possible to address different issues at once. Teamwork not only reassures the homeowner but also helps save more items.

Can the cleanup and extraction be difficult? Yes!

  • For example, scooping off the standing water with buckets or scrubbing off soils from surfaces with brushes is backbreaking work
  • Our SERVPRO technicians use advanced equipment that lightens the load and quickens the turnaround time
  • For example, using truck-mounted water extractors, we can remove up to 36000 gallons of water per day
  • We also use submersible pumps, which are more efficient for water deeper than two inches

Floodwaters contaminate porous materials in the house deeply necessitating removal. Commonly affected materials include carpets, drywall, and insulation, among others. Removing and replacing these materials is a complicated and tiring process. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on a large array of tools, including pry bars, rubber hammers, and molding lifters, among others that help ease the process and reduce the chances of damaging other elements of the property.
