Why SERVPRO is The First Choice for Flood Damage Restoration in Fort Myers
Mitigating Living Room Flood Damage in Fort Myers
Florida residents are well aware of the risks of flooding in the area. Still, something they may be surprised by is that 25% of flooding occurs outside of designated Special Flood Hazard Areas. During the length of a 30-year mortgage, there is a 26% chance of experiencing a flood—a figure more than six times the likelihood of a house fire. Not only is flooding a genuine threat to safety, but it can also leave homeowners with costly repairs and considerable stress.

This local SERVPRO also has a mold remediation license (#MSMR 2529), so if your residence requires additional remediation on top of the flood cleanup, this team is well-equipped and thoroughly trained to take on the job.
SERVPRO's State-of-the-Art Tools
SERVPRO tools cover a wide variety of needs for mitigating flood damage, including:
- Moisture detection and measurement tools such as infrared cameras, and penetrative and non-penetrative moisture sensors and meters to evaluate humidity and determine drying goals.
- Extraction equipment, including gas-powered submersible pumps, as well as truck-mounted and portable extraction units.
- Drying equipment, including industrial-strength centrifugal air movers and commercial grade dehumidifiers.
- Odor removal tools, including air scrubbers, EPA-registered antimicrobials, as well as thermal and ultra low-volume fogging.
How SERVPRO Can Help
After extraction, disinfection, and drying has taken place, the next step in restoring your home to a preloss condition after a flood is preparing your home and its contents so that you can live there once more. The steps that are taken to do this include a thorough disinfection of surfaces such as walls and ceilings. Hard flooring and other structural materials may need deodorizing with ultra low-volume foggers. These foggers use water or solvent-based deodorizers to eliminate odors from water damage. Large ventilation fans run both before and after deodorizing for several cycles to ensure the air is clean and safe for residents and technicians alike. In areas where odors are less prevalent, pellets may be used to eliminate smells. Pump sprayers eliminate strong odors.
