Flood Damage Restoration in Your Norristown Home After a Flash Flood

Flash floods can come without any warning in Norristown, just like other natural disasters. Even if you don’t live near a body of water, you can be at risk for flash floods, as they are not caused by overflowing of bodies of water, but rather by heavy rainfall from a thunderstorm. Other causes include a levee or dam break, or even a mudslide.

Aftermaths from a flash flood can be quite devastating to your Norristown home and the surrounding area. The water comes at a high intensity, likely bringing with it trees and debris, plus large quantities of water. Once the event is over, you need the assistance of a professional remediation company, such as SERVPRO, to help you clean up the mess left behind.

After the flash flood has passed, the essential thing to do is to ensure everyone in your family is safe and well. Before doing anything else, deal with any possible injuries. When you have determined that everyone is okay, you can then worry about your home. It is likely that your home and personal possessions were affected by the flash flood. The last thing you need after an event like this is to start a DIY project, which is why SERVPRO staff want to help.

Even if the damage is not too severe, we have you and your family remain out of your home for your safety until we can finish the restoration. Several dangers exist with flood damage restoration which can harm you. Besides the typical slip, trip, and fall hazards, flood waters are usually contaminated with debris and even chemical runoff and infectious waste. We are therefore careful to wear safety equipment at all times to protect us while we work.

Safety concerns are taken seriously, and we address them correctly before we even begin restoration work. A safe environment for everyone is a must. We identify all of the safety risks upon arriving at your home, so we do not leave anything to chance.

SERVPRO of Norristown wants to clean your home in West Norriton, Audubon, or Bethel Hill after a flash flood, but we ensure that everyone is safe while performing all cleaning and restoration tasks. When you call us at (610) 272-8520 for help, you can rest assured that we take every needed precaution before and during the job.
