Hurricane Katrina is a damning reminder of the powerful force of Mother Nature. When such a storm ensues, it can come with a heavy downpour. The outcome is apparent within just minutes after the natural disaster. Resultant flash floods can destroy massive amounts of property both inside and outside the house.

When this happens to you, SERVPRO may be in a position to help. We are a locally based flood damage restoration company who can secure your property in Philadelphia. Our highly trained technicians, who have access to industry leading tools and techniques, can arrive quickly to reverse the water damage.

When drying your house, four main factors come into play: air movement, humidity, the amount of excess water present, and temperature. Ideally, drying occurs faster under high temperatures (between 70 and 90 degrees Celsius) low humidity levels (between 30 and 50 percent). The damp and humid air in the water-damaged room should also be replaced by dry air to accelerate drying.

If the water reached your upholstery, a few things might happen. Wooden framings may swell and crack, fabrics may spot from water, and color bleeding may stain the floors or carpets. SERVPRO technicians use a variety of water removal procedures to deal with these situations.

Drying different materials require a vast knowledge of their interaction with moisture. Our specialists can determine the extent of water damage by checking exposure time and permeance of specific materials. Permeance refers to the ability of materials to absorb water vapor.

Painted concrete can flake when exposed to moisture, thus requiring repainting. Concrete floors are also porous and can develop whitish calcium deposits on the surface on exposure to water. Our restorers use EPA-registered disinfectants and HEPA vacuuming to get rid of the debris.

Natural catastrophes like thunderstorms come without warning, flooding houses and damaging property. If you act fast, SERVPRO of Manayunk can restore your property like nothing even happened. Call us today at (215) 482-0800.
