Person wearing boots walking through floodwater SERVPRO of Pender/West Onslow Counties has the expertise to safely restore your flood-damaged property.

How SERVPRO Handles Storm Flood Damage in Hampstead

When dealing with flooding issues resulting from a storm, the expectations regarding restoration are high because floodwater usually contains potentially harmful contaminants. Biological contaminants like bacteria and viruses occur naturally in floodwaters. The water can also seep into the walls and floorboards, causing fungus growth like mold. 

The other effects of flooding include peeling paint, warping or cupping of wood floors, damaged wiring, and rotting drywall. When storm flood damage occurs on your Hampstead property, SERVPRO is the right firm to hire. Our flood damage repair process may include the following steps: 

  • Inspection
  • Pack-out 
  • Water extraction and drying
  • Deodorization
  • Reconstruction


Our team can assess the damage from the storm, document everything thoroughly, and create a suitable restoration plan. 


A pack-out falls under the private property section in your homeowner’s insurance policy. Our SERVRPRO team can clean, dry, and properly repair the items removed from your residence before returning them. We are well-equipped to pack-out different things, including appliances, furniture, and the contents of kitchen pantries or cupboards. 

Water extraction and drying 

Our SERVPRO technicians can remove the water using powerful pumps. Our team can also use axial air movers to dry your home. Axial air movers deliver lower pressure at high volume and can cover larger areas of affected materials. We can place refrigerant dehumidifiers in the middle of affected rooms to ensure even drying. These devices eliminate water vapor from the air through condensation. 


Flooding often causes a foul smell. We can use deodorizing pellets or granules to eliminate it. These are odor absorbers containing fuller’s earth as their main ingredient. It functions like a sponge to hold and absorb smells. We can apply the pellets to a particular area or the whole home. 


SERVPRO can perform minor and major repairs to restore your residence. Minor repairs may include replacing drywall, painting the home, and replacing carpeting. The significant repairs may consist of reconstructing specific structures like the hardwood floors. 

In the event of storm flood damage, call SERVPRO of Pender / West Onslow Counties at (910) 319-0600 for restoration services. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
