Commercial Flood Damage Restoration Leaves Fort Myers Shores School Clean and Safe.

A redheaded child raising his hand in a classroom. Let us help keep our young minds in their Fort Myers Shores classroom, not out do to flood water.

SERVPRO will help keep your Fort Myers Shores schools waterless from a flood.

A flooding incident in Fort Myers Shores affected many properties, including a school, halting learning activities. The incident caused many problems both inside and outside the school structures requiring a concerted effort to restore normalcy at the institution. SERVPRO has sufficient experience dealing with flooding problems, making it easier to address such incidents.

Unlike other commercial flood damage incidents in Fort Myers Shores, the water around the institution receded fast, creating a perfect opportunity to accomplish various restoration tasks. For instance, we managed to inspect the damages left by the flooding outside the buildings where we discovered various types of debris, including bricks and mud pushed by the water from other areas. Our SERVPRO technicians managed to remove the rubble quickly using a mini land-mover and pressure washers.

The damages inside the structures were intensive because of the wide variety of materials susceptible to water damage. We also had to protect the interiors from further loss because some of the windows were shattered, and a wall in one of the classrooms had a gaping hole. Such openings allow weather elements, small animals, and even vandals, unfettered access into the building. Our SERVPRO technicians managed to board up all openings using plywood and two-by-four planks of wood.

The floodwaters had soiled the interior sections in most of the buildings requiring cleanup, decontamination, and drying. Our SERVPRO technicians first removed unsalvageable materials such as books, drywall, insulation, and other materials for disposal. We then embarked on the cleaning process using a combination of methods, including mechanical agitation with brushes and chemical action using professional cleaning agents. Deodorizing the affected areas and applying disinfectants and antimicrobial agents ensured that the affected areas were not only clean but also looked and smelled clean.

The damage left by a simple flooding incident can seem overwhelming. Call SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda at (941) 575-5910 to help with the cleanup and other restoration processes making it, "Like it never even happened."
