Flood damage is the most severe type of water loss a homeowner can experience. The faster mitigation begins, lessens the potential loss to both your home and its contents.
Ground water is sometimes referred to as "black water" and is considered a category three biohazard. This type of water loss event should always have professional mitigation for both health and safety reasons. This is important for the home/business owner to get it taken care of immediately, to prevent many more future problems.
When SERVPRO technicians work on a site, along with restoring as much of the water loss contents as possible, we try to limit disruptions in the home and dry furnishings in place when possible.
Our air movers blow high-velocity air that causes water vapor inside objects to rise to the surface. Once that happens, the dehumidifiers capture and port out the moisture. This method enables warm, dry air to bring down the moisture levels in the room and its contents in an expedient manner. Once confirmed dry though moisture readings, we clean and disinfect all surfaces affected by groundwater to ensure they are sanitary.
