Flood Damage in the Panhandle
SERVPRO Removes Water & Dries Out Flood Damaged Properties
Property damage from flooding in Florida is nearly as common as rain in August. The rapid arrival of thunderstorms and the massive deposits of rainwater can overwhelm a home or business that is unprepared for it.
Inlet Beach flood damage can happen during or after one of these storms. SERVPRO has the training to help you identify possible threats to your property before it happens and the equipment to deal with any problem swiftly and efficiently. Company technicians are fully qualified under the guidelines established by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restorations (IICRC). Extensive courses are completed in the areas of Water Damage Restoration, Carpet Cleaning, Applied Structural Drying, Microbial Remediation and Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning.
Our inspectors are trained not just to analyze a problem after it happens, but also to examine a home or commercial structure for preventable situations. In many cases, flood damage arises because drainage systems are clogged or otherwise compromised. If a rain gutter system doesn't direct excess water, the results can close the doors of a business. We offer a free inspection to help our customers prepare. The equipment our employees use is at the forefront of the restoration industry. We remove standing water using pumps that can be fully submerged in water and run continuously. If power has been knocked out, we bring our own generators, which can be difficult to rent after a tropical storm, and keep personnel on site to ensure constant water removal. Once that is accomplished, we put our commercial grade drying equipment to work. The industrial grade humidifiers and air movers (fans) we use quickly pull moisture from the air and out of water-logged carpets and flooring to prevent odor, mold, and warping. With everything dried out, we go to work removing that 'musty odor' from your structure. The air scrubbers we use remove airborne particles to improve air quality while the deodorization chemicals and foggers we deploy clean out the HVAC system.
Our area is in the middle of storm season, but early August isn't quite as bad as other times in the summer. If you are worried about possible, future flood damage or you see signs on your property that there may already be a problem, now is the time to contact SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington. Call us today at (850) 267-0746.
