Flood Damage in Your Forest Hills Home is No Match for SERVPRO

Weather changes from snow to heavy rains when you move from winter to spring, so your home could suffer storm damage. If flooding is present, then you need to act quickly to cut down on both the costs of restoration and potential health hazards for all humans and pets living within the home. We have a highly-skilled team of technicians at SERVPRO who have the experience to handle the fallout of spring storms and floodwaters.

Once a storm leaves your home with wind and flood damage in Forest Hills, professional assistance helps you get it back to normal quickly. We are the local leaders in the restoration field, and we know the best way to address all challenges that come with black water left behind from a flood situation.

On-Site Assessment
Immediately after arriving on your property, SERVPRO tarps and boards up any holes left behind by falling branches or wind. Our project managers take a look at all flood damage inside the home, making a note of any potential safety concerns. Any slip and fall issues, electrical hazards, and contaminated water all become a priority to keep everyone on the project safe.

Contamination Control
It is not that uncommon to be out of power after a storm or flood event. SERVPRO vehicles arrive with on-board generators along with industrial extraction equipment to start the cleanup process. We utilize truck-mounted extractors along with submersible pumps that run on gasoline to remove copious amounts of black water from your home into holding tanks. Our skilled technicians understand all of the local regulations on the disposal of hazardous waste, which is what we follow for all floodwater removal.

Cleanup and Disinfection
Once the majority of the floodwater is extracted from your interior, SERVPRO technicians clean all surfaces with specialized products to eliminate bacteria and to inhibit mold and mildew growth. We also take the time to ensure all hidden moisture is removed, using thermal imaging technology to check all surfaces and tight spaces. If moisture is located, dehumidifiers and air movers work to finish up the drying process. EPA-registered anti-microbial products are then applied to further prevent biohazards from lingering throughout your home.
