Flood Damage Ruins More than Your Norristown Home
Personal Property and Possessions Are Prioritized by SERVPRO for Restoration After a Storm
After a flood recedes and the water level returns to normal, pockets of water remain here and there throughout Norristown. Some of these pockets exist in homes, which SERVPRO technicians clean up with our extraction equipment. Residual moisture can still contain microscopic pathogens and other potential hazards, so we clean with biocidal cleansing agents to make your home as safe as possible. Silt and other deposits around your house can do the same and keep these organisms alive for unexpectedly long periods.
Homes in Norristown that have flood damage need restoration work to begin as soon as possible. Personal belongings and household furnishings that absorb water also require special handling to restore them to their former condition. Generally, recovering these items in a flooded home costs less than replacing the same things cost, so performing the necessary work often ends up as the most cost-effective option of the two. When this does not hold true, we explain why to the customer.
Cleaning items exposed to flooding by our technicians remove the soils deposited and brings things back to how you remember them. Making them safe for your family keeps them from exposure to pathogens and becoming ill. We take this risk very seriously, as many water-borne illnesses occur each year in flood-damaged areas across our country.
The ease with which floodwaters evaporate and travel to non-flooded areas of your home makes it crucial that SERVPRO uses desiccant machines--typically gel-based dehumidifiers, in the process of drying out your home. Just like we capture water from materials where it penetrated, we also use equipment to pull moisture out of the air. Once the air becomes dry again, and floors, walls, and other surfaces reach their normal moisture levels, we know our work in this area succeeded. No guesswork here, we monitor with moisture sensors and infrared thermal imaging to ensure a return to preloss condition.
SERVPRO of Norristown can be contacted by dialing (610) 272-8520 at any time. Our 24-hour emergency number is always ready to answer your questions about flood damage and how it can affect your home, as well as how we can help your family by restoring it "Like it never even happened."
