Get The Fast Cleanup You Need For Storm Flood Damage In Fort Myers

Water damage is the type of emergency that every homeowner dreads, but you should still be prepared. Knowing that you have a trained team of technicians on your side to help with the cleanup process gives you added peace of mind.

When it comes to storm flood damage in Fort Myers, you are faced with excessive moisture even after the initial water levels are brought down. You must act as quickly as possible so that the damage does not have a chance to get any worse. Waiting too long can cause irreparable damage to your furnishings as well as the structure and integrity of your home.

Moving Items Out

Groundwater that may get into your home with the flooding from a storm brings with it a laundry list of contaminants. Protective gear should always be worn or avoid contact with the water at all costs. Once the water from a flood is inside your home, SERVPRO technicians can help to move items to another location within the home. We can also work to pack out porous items that could otherwise absorb the floodwater. 

Before Cleanup

Our technicians can test the water in your home after a flood to determine what contaminants or bacteria may be present to ensure the right cleaning agents are used. We use moisture detection equipment to scope the floor to determine whether or not the subfloor should be addressed both before and after the water extraction takes place. We remove baseboards and move furnishings or appliances out of the way to make sure no moisture is left behind.

Drying And Cleanup

SERVPRO technicians bring in humidifiers and air movers to pull as much moisture out of the impacted space as possible. We also have drying mats that we can move around to dry the floor evenly, pushing moisture out of floorboards and joints. Finally, we make sure that proper cleaning and disinfection takes place, removing any unpleasant odors using our highly specialized deodorization applications. 

Call SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers/Punta Gorda today at (941) 575-5910 when you need help with cleanup after a flood. Our team makes sure that your home looks “Like it never even happened.”
