Flood Damage Cleanup in Santa Rosa Beach Homes

Flood damage delivers several levels of loss when it hits a house. Even when the scale of water intrusion is small, the costs can be severe due to the possibility of contaminants or sewage.

Scoping Santa Rosa Beach properties with flood damage using professional moisture detection equipment is crucial. It is impossible to see every place in the room water migrates. It seeps under floors, behind walls, and the techs carefully go through the room to determine the exact scale of the water loss.

Safety During Cleanup
Testing the water is another critical element to determine the presence of any toxins or sewage and apply the appropriate treatments to lessen the danger during cleanup and restoration services. When dealing with floodwater, the techs wear full-body protection, including respirators, to avoid aspirating airborne molecules.

Common Loss Items
Contents of the home that absorb floodwater frequently do not have restoration potential. Carpet and padding become extremely heavy when saturated and require extraction before removal. They are then cut into strips and disposed of as a biohazard. While the sheetrock on the walls may wick water and require sections get cut away to halt any further loss, if the baseboards are hardwood, they may be suitable for reuse after drying and disinfection.

Drying and Monitoring
The drying phase gets frequent checking of the air moisture levels to ensure that pre-set drying goals get attained. The techs use centrifugal air movers along with dehumidifiers to capture the embedded water vapor that gets raised by the high-velocity airflow. This assists with not only facilitating expedited drying but also evenly dries the loss area.

Mold Prevention or Remediation
SERVPRO techs undergo training and certification in mold remediation #MRSR309 and #MRSR377. With this knowledge, they know the unmistakable early signs of an infestation and how to halt the spread. The application of antimicrobial cleaners and sealants on the exposed framework assists with inhibiting mold spore germination.
