Why You Need Professional Flood Damage Cleanup In Boynton Beach

They say the tradeoff for the beautiful sunshine in Florida is the wild weather, including the threat of flood damage. Intense storms, high winds from hurricanes and tropical stores happen, and according to the organization, States at Risk Florida has approximately 3.5 million people with a risk of coastal flooding.

When SERVPRO handles flood damage cleanup in Boynton Beach homes, the technicians arrive soon after the initial call. The team members scope for paths of water migration using visual observation as well as specialized equipment, so they do not miss any areas in the home that require extraction.

Groundwater Causes More Loss
Water causes damage and floodwater is among the most damaging due to the potential for chemicals, toxins, even sewage that gets picked up along the way before it enters a home. Nearly any item saturated by floodwater is generally a loss. In many types of water damage situations, carpeting has restoration potential. In this type of home disaster, the technicians detach the carpet, and it is cut into strips and disposed of due to the inability to restore it to sanitary standards for in-home use.

Avoid Contact with Flood Water
Until SERVPRO technicians test the water, homeowners should not allow the water to come into contact with skin and may be advised to stay off-property until the completion of mitigation efforts. When only a portion of a residence has water damage, it is a good idea to close off the water loss area from the rest of the home to stop cross-contamination.

Special Attention Needed for All Types of Flooring
After prolonged exposure to water, tile tends to delaminate and requires removal. Technicians scope the subfloor with moisture detection equipment to learn if water migrated into the subfloor. In cases it has, SERVPRO technicians use controlled demolition for clean removal.
