Flood Damage Cleanup For Your Fort Myers Home Is Easier When You Hire Experts
Flooding in Fort Myers occurs because of many reasons, including hurricanes and tropical storms. Coastal flooding can also occur if strong winds push the Gulf water up onto the land. Having flood insurance is an essential precaution for the residents of this city. After a flood, water can get into different areas of your house.
It is, therefore, crucial to contact a professional flood remediation company that can use advanced equipment to trace water ingression in your property. If your Fort Myers home has flood damage, you can count on SERVPRO to clean it up, sanitize and dry it to restore it to its preloss state. Our crew has years of experience in water damage remediation. We can take the following steps to handle the flood damage.
Extracting flood water
The longer floodwater sits in your home, the more damage it can cause. Our experts can remove as much standing water as possible from your home using portable pumps or wet/dry vacuums. The more water we extract, the faster a home dries. We also remove the mud, dirt, or other debris that may have entered your property.
Drying out your property
Drying out a house quickly after a flood helps reduce secondary destruction like mold development. Equipment like air movers and dehumidifiers enable us to dry buildings and their contents more efficiently.
Floodwater usually contains microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Therefore, when carpet flooring gets submerged in floodwater, our protocol is to discard it. Saturated carpets are also a perfect breeding ground for mold.
Removing water-damaged items
Moving items that got wet during the flooding such as furniture, electronics to dry areas can prevent further destruction. At SERVPRO, we also offer move out services, which involve taking flood-damaged items to our facilities for thorough cleaning and restoration. We have advanced cleaning equipment, including an Esporta Machine that is ideal for cleaning things like rugs, clothes, shoes, stuffed animals.
Mold can grow in your home 24 to 48 hours after a flood. Our technicians maintain indoor relative humidity below 60% to reduce mold growth. We can inspect your property thoroughly for signs of mold. If it is present, our crew can contain the moldy areas to prevent mold spores from spreading to the rest of your home and then complete the mold cleanup process.
Cleaning and sanitizing your home
After surfaces such as walls, shelves, and floors in your house, are dry, we can wash and disinfect them. Using specialist solutions, our technicians can sanitize the surfaces to eliminate microbes. We can make your home safe to live in again after professionally cleaning and restoring it.
