SERVPRO Anticipates a Broad Spectrum of Problems when Delivering Water Removal Services

Flash floods can fill up your Jacksonville home with tons of water almost instantly. However, removing the water and resolving the other problems that develop is rarely easy. Having the right strategy is essential for the right outcome, cost-effectiveness, and general convenience.

Flash flood damage at your Jacksonville property can affect vast sections since the groundwater can rise to any height from a few inches to a couple of feet. Floodwaters are categorized as black water since the level of contamination is high. Our SERVPRO technicians expect various materials in the property, including drywall panels, insulation, and floor coverings such as carpets, to be thoroughly doused with organic and chemical contaminants.

The Crucial Restoration Processes Include:

  • Biohazard remediation
  • Sewage cleanup
  • Rodent cleanup services

Any meaningful restoration work starts after the water recedes in and around the structure. It is possible to find that rodents or other small animals had taken refuge in the house, causing additional problems. However, our SERVPRO teams are prepared to handle such floodwater challenges.

Venturing into the contaminated house also poses risks. Apart from wearing protective equipment, our technicians also take steps such as spraying EPA-registered decontaminants directly into the water to combat contaminants.

Removing all unsalvageable materials is also essential for various reasons, including maintaining the structural integrity of your home and restoring sanitary conditions. Our SERVPRO technicians make flood cuts a few inches above the identified water line, creating the space to remove wall materials. We also strip off carpets, pads, and any other unsalvageable floor materials.
