How SERVPRO Deals with Flood and Storm Damage

5/30/2018 (Permalink)

Water damage to your bedroom is a terrible inconvenience. Any leak or flood from a faucet, tub or pipes in your home carries with it the risk of flood damage throughout your house. Water might also enter your home from a storm or flood outside. Water can migrate to your bedroom and damage the structure of the room such as the floors and ceilings and can also cause harm to your furniture and belongings. A flood can happen to anyone, and if you happen to have an en suite bathroom, it is even more of a worry.

Flood damage to your property is a frustrating situation, and of course, you want to get it remedied as soon as possible. Luckily, SERVPRO technicians are experts for mitigating water damage. Our teams are trained to assess and deal with any water problem no matter how big or how small it is.

Our professional assessment of the situation begins when you contact our 24-hour help center. We understand that swift action reduces the risk of even more damage which is why we are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our professional office staff understands that this is a frightening and confusing time. We will ask you a series of questions about the flood to better understand your needs.

As soon as our technicians arrive to your home, they begin with a thorough assessment of the flood damage. We start with a visual inspection that includes looking at your bedroom walls, ceilings and carpets, as well as the floor under the carpets. We examine furniture and soft furnishings so we know what can and cannot be saved.

SERVPRO understands that even the most thorough visual inspection does not give a true picture of flood damage. That is why we train our technicians in the use of various detection devices to seek out all types of water damage. Moisture sensors are useful for examining soft materials such as carpet to determine the presence of water and the extent of the flood damage. Moisture meters show the amount of damp that is present and can be used to examine inside wall cavities and under wooden flooring so that our technicians know where water has migrated to and how deeply it has penetrated the materials.

Using professional equipment to examine your bedroom means not a single damaged patch goes untreated. We will ensure that there are no hidden issues that would potentially cause further problems down the road.

Do not panic about water damage to your home. Let SERVPRO of Elk Grove / E. Schaumburg / Itasca / Roselle assess and remedy the situation. Call us at (847) 593-3055 for help.
