There Is Hope After a Flood Damage Experience in Germantown
Rely on SERVPRO for Thorough Flood Damage Restoration Services
Though some aspects of flood damage are predictable and it is possible to salvage most of your contents, in some cases, you may end up with significant losses. We are referring to the cash you need to spend to do the repairs and replacements. When you fail to act promptly, water may penetrate into the hard to access areas and create conditions for mold growth in your Germantown home.
When addressing flood damage in Germantown, our SERVPRO technicians wear appropriate safety equipment such as work boots, safety glasses, rubber gloves and disposable respirators during the restoration. This protects them from exposure to bacteria, mold and any contaminants present. We have the skills and tools to inspect your ceilings, electrical systems, air ducts and heating systems. Our team takes the presence of holes, cracks, defective flashing, and missing shingles seriously.
In most cases, the chemical toxins, sewage, mud, and bacteria that the water carries into your property causes a big part of the destruction. That is why when our SERVPRO technicians are working for you they inspect the degree of damage to your porous and nonporous materials. Porous materials absorb water, and we usually discard them even when they are dry. Remember, drying is not enough to deal with the contaminants that they leave behind that are likely to cause health effects.
Nonporous materials made of concrete, plastic, porcelain, as well as glass, are in most cases salvageable. We clean, disinfect and dry them using specialized equipment and processes. We then have to ventilate the area to promote the circulation of air. Sometimes, we may use vacuum cleaners, dehumidifiers and fans to speed up the drying process. The wet vacuum cleaner is also useful when unblocking your baths and sinks and cleaning upholstery.
