Flood Damage In Norristown
Creeks and Rivers Flood In Norristown
Creeks and rivers can reach flood stage, sometimes in minutes, leaving little time to prepare. Homeowners can move personal belongings to higher floors and make sure their families are safe if given enough warning. Basements and even the first floor of a home can fill with water that is contaminated, carrying mud, debris, animal feces, and chemicals, leaving a potentially toxic mess.
SERVPRO of Norristown has lots of experience dealing with flood damage in Norristown and surrounding areas. Our team members are trained to deal with microbial infestations, flood damage, mold, and structural drying. For more significant damage events, we can also call on partner franchises to assist in providing equipment and staff. We are available on a 24 hour a day, seven days a week basis. Our teams are usually onsite within four hours of your call to begin the process of restoring your home.
Decontamination and Drying Structures
Once the flooding has subsided, SERVPRO can deploy sump pumps and water extractors to remove water from basements and crawl spaces. Next, we can remove all of the debris that may have entered the home. We evaluate which items can be saved by decontamination and cleaning and those that cannot. Usually, we can save hard surface items.
SERVPRO can review the steps that must be considered to properly dry your home and remove any chance of mold growth or harm from contaminated material. We work closely with the client and their insurance adjuster to arrive at a cleaning plan to restore your home to its original condition.
In many situations, we must remove carpets and underpadding. We make flood cuts on all walls to a point above the waterline. Drywall exposed to water usually cannot be saved. Also, we need access to the studs inside the wall to remove all moisture and properly dry the structure. While the damage from a flood may seem extensive, our experience has shown that it is better for your health and that of your family to remove all contaminated elements, properly clean and dry your home.
