Pack-Outs After Flood Damage To Your Jacksonville Home
Flood Damage To Your Home
Whether you live in a flood-prone area of Jacksonville or not, you could be at risk for flooding in your home at some point. Heavy rains can create a situation like this by oversaturating the ground or overflowing nearby streams and rivers. Sometimes you have warning that flooding is possible, but in other situations, flash floods occur where there is no time to prepare for the disaster.
Storms like this can be quite devastating to your Jacksonville home and neighborhood. If you experience a situation like this and are left with flood damage to clean up, where do you begin? The best thing to do first is to get a hold of our professional staff at SERVPRO. We are trained to handle flood damage and can help you sort everything out, get the water back out of your home, and restore whatever is possible.
Although we try to avoid it, sometimes a move-out is necessary for a flooding situation. When your home is saturated with so much water, the contents of your home could become damaged from the moisture levels inside the home. High humidity can damage expensive upholstery or artwork.
Once all your possessions have been packed, boxed, tagged, inventoried, photographed and staged, SERVPRO staff can get ready to move them to a safe location. Contents are moved from the work site to a warehouse or storage facility where they can be cleaned.
Sometimes, the move itself of your items is sub-contracted. Usually, our staff clean the contents and your home from the flood damage but are not trained as professional movers. We can do the packing and cleaning of your items, while a moving company loads and transports them to and from an off-site location.
In this way, you can be assured that adequate furniture blankets and pads are used to prevent furniture from being scratched or damaged during transport. Drawers are secured, and items are correctly loaded into the truck. We go over with you all the dates of pack out, the time for restoration and cleaning, and when your home should be back together with all of your possessions in place again.
SERVPRO of Jacksonville South does everything needed to protect your personal property during flood remediation to your home in San Marco, Deerwood, or Avenues. Give us a call right away at (904) 762-8066 after flooding has occurred in your home.
