SERVPRO Can Help Prevent Long Term Flood Damage In Your Fort Myers Home!

As hurricane season draws near in Fort Myers, flooding can become a great concern to homeowners. Sadly, people can sometimes return to a flooded home after evacuating away from the strong winds and rain brought on by a hurricane. We offer professional solutions to flooding and can do our best to prevent further damage to your home.

Water washed into houses in Fort Myers can easily cause flood damage to the floors and walls. SERVPRO technicians can quickly get to work to fight against damage to your home's structural components. Flood water is removed with the assistance of truck mounted pumps or industrial grade wet vacs, and we can use moisture meters to inspect your floors and walls for excess moisture. If left unaddressed, abnormally high moisture levels can warp wood and facilitate mold growth. To avoid this, our techs can work fast to draw moisture from your floorboards with the help of air movers and can completely remove all excess moisture with the assistance of dehumidifiers.

Unfortunately, flood waters often do not stop at your floorboards. Walls can wick water up into themselves and permanently damage insulation. Non-fiberglass insulation stored in your walls can have its R-value (fire resistance) reduced, opening your home up to dangerous problems down the road. To avoid future problems, our technicians can drill holes in your walls to help facilitate the drying of your wall cavities and insulation. Additionally, we can make a flood cut to discard sections of your walls that may be over-saturated with water.

Once your house has had the flood water removed, we can go on a final walk-through and can apply antimicrobial sprays to limit any unwanted health effects.

If your house has been the victim of flooding, then call SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda at (941) 575-5910. Our emergency dispatchers are available 24/7 for when you most need them.
