Speed Matters When Dealing With Water & Flood Damage In Jacksonville
SERVPRO Removes Water and Mitigates Damages Rapidly
Floods can be catastrophic for any householder. Jacksonville residents clearly remember the floods of October last year when many streets were completely under water. The floods caused chaos and damaged many properties. It is unrealistic to think it can not happen again as floods are often a fact of life for people here in Florida. What you can do however is take action quickly when flood damage strikes.
Mother nature visits floods on Florida regularly. A storm surge, burst river banks, heavy rainfall or a hurricane, can all cause flood damage to your Jacksonville home. Any homeowner who has faced a flood cleanup knows that it is a major undertaking. The faster you take action, the better the chance of restoring your house and possessions.
Furniture, clothes and other household items quickly become waterlogged. Some can be saved, but others are not. The structure of your home suffers in a flood, too. Walls, floors, and ceilings are all susceptible to structural damage when they are exposed to standing water. The longer things are left untreated, the harder it is to restore them.
SERVPRO experts are well trained in the risks of flooding in the Florida region. That is why We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. We understand that swift remediation is necessary to restore your home as fully as possible. We recommend that in the event of a flood you call us as soon as possible.
The first thing is to clear your home of standing water. As long as there is standing water in your home, it can soak into your floors, carpets or walls. Our IICRC-certified technicians come equipped with both truck mounted, and portable pumps to extract water from your home quickly. Our powerful sump pump equipment is designed to work even if fully submerged. The pumps can move water uphill if need be which means that even if access to your home is difficult following a flood, our team can still get in and get the water out.
During the removal of standing water, technicians turn their attention to assessing the condition of your home and belongings. A full assessment allows us to devise the best drying plan for your situation. As well as keen observation we use industry leading devices such as moisture meters and infrared technology to gain a full picture of the situation. We also let you know which items cannot be saved, as keeping them around provides a potential breeding ground for mold and it is, therefore, better to dispose of them.
SERVPRO understands that getting your home dried is a priority so you can get back to a normal life. We know how to position air movers and dehumidifiers throughout the dwelling for the most effective drying of floors and floor coverings, walls, carpets, and furniture. We carefully monitor the drying process to ensure it is complete.
If there is flood water in your home, don’t delay. Call SERVPRO of Jacksonville South on (904) 762-8066 for the help you need.
