What You Should Do When Flood Waters Enter Your Norristown Home

Who To Call When Your Norristown Home Experiences Flood Damage

Storms in Norristown can bring torrential rains that may cause dams to overflow or break. Resulting flash floods can be hazardous and may even require residents to evacuate their homes. Sadly, many of those who evacuate during heavy storms come back to find their house half underwater. Should your home become flooded, contact professionals who can remove the water and mitigate as much of the damage as possible.  

SERVPRO technicians have experience when it comes to flood damage in Norristown houses. We work efficiently to mitigate as much damage as possible to your home's interior and structure. Our crews of water damage restoration technicians (WRT) can arrive at your property in a matter of hours and can remove the standing flood waters with the assistance of industrial grade wet vacs and truck mounted pumps. We can use moisture meters to establish baseline moisture measurements and determine our drying goals.  

After long-term submersion, water can seep through hardwood lacquer, causing the wood itself to crack and lose its structural integrity. To prevent this, professionals from SERVPRO can deploy drying mats to speed up the drying process of the wood.  

Flood waters often consist of Category 3 black water which contains debris, dirt, and bacteria. Cat 3 water soils absorbent materials such as upholstery, creating health hazards for homeowners. Our crews are certified through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and can strip and dispose of upholstery that came into contact with the flood waters.  

It can be heartbreaking to be forced to evacuate from your home because of flooding and returning home to inspect the resulting damage can be even worse. SERVPRO of Norristown knows that it can be tough for you, so we do our best to restore your home as rapidly as possible. Call us now at (610) 272-8520 should you experience flooding.
