Seminole Flood Damage and You
Trust and Call SERVPRO to Restore and Cleanup Your Storm Damaged Property in Seminole
It is important that the restoration company you hire keeps you involved with every step. Seeing your home under water is bad enough without dealing with a work crew that ignores your concerns and does not explain what is happening.
The first step SERVPRO takes to restore the effects of Seminole flood damage is to ask you the questions we need to stop and contain the source of the water. Our technicians then inspect your home (with you, if it is safe to do so) and develop a plan to clean and repair your home.
We need to know if the water is clean, gray, or black. Clean water means that pipe ruptured carried potable water and had not released any contamination into your home; this is the simplest flooding to remove. With gray water, there may be soap released into your home from a broken dishwasher, but this is not a health threat and get removed almost as easily as clean water.
Black Water has human or animal waste or a heavy amount of soil in it; sometimes both. This flooding comes from a blocked toilet, sewer line, or a failing septic tank. The intrusion of water from a rising creek or river carries many contaminants into your property. Our technicians must take extra precautions to avoid further contaminating your home. These pollutants may mean removing the water into a special truck or pumping it directly into the sewer. They have to wear protective boots and gloves at a minimum.
Our inspectors make a note of every item the water has affected. The checklist includes not just carpets and floorboards, but also electrical outlets and the floor vents of your HVAC system. In addition to a written or digital report, we also take pictures to record damage before we begin restoration. Once we complete the report, we sit down and go over everything with you. Our team leader answers each question and only begin work after you are satisfied and sign-off on the report.
SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches knows that you are the best source of data to create a restoration plan and wants you to understand every action we take until we are finished. If you need us, call (727) 391-6212 today.
