Professional Flood Damage Restoration in Charleston Saves Impossible Situations

When you come back home and find a foot of muddy floodwaters covering most parts of the house, a feeling of desperation is likely to overcome you since it seems like everything is lost. However, it is possible to salvage some items and clean the property to a sanitary level, especially if you involve a professional flood damage restorer.

Support When None Is Available
An instance of flood damage in Charleston is likely to affect many properties simultaneously, making it hard to get help since friends and neighbors are also dealing with the same fate. What worsens the situation is that most materials deteriorate when exposed to water over extended periods. A restoration crew from SERVPRO can perform various actions that help in the recovery of your valuable, including:

    •    Moving contents from flooded sections to elevated areas within the property
    •    Extract standing water from the house
    •    Set up dehumidifiers to maintain favorable humidity levels
    •    Enter the flooded house safely

Prioritizing Critical Actions
Restoring flooded property takes many steps to achieve the intended goal. Some actions may have more importance than others may because they affect safety, cost, or even the health of your family. Before starting the restoration, our SERVPRO technicians scope the loss site to determine what steps to complete first. For example, we confirm that power is turned off and use circuit testers to ensure there is no risk of electrocution for anyone who ventures into the house. Other steps that like water removal can follow later.

Dealing with Contamination
Floodwaters contaminate properties heavily, necessitating several measures to sanitize the property. Such contamination is much harder to deal with when it affects porous materials. Our SERVPRO technicians spray EPA registered disinfectants directly into the floodwaters before starting restoration to deal with contaminants. We also perform controlled demolition to remove carpets, drywall, insulation, and other porous materials from the property to ensure it is fully sanitized.

Do not lose hope when floods ravage your property. Call SERVPRO of South & West Charleston at (843) 823-7400 to help. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
