Water damage is the most common problem that homeowners may face but not every case of water damage is equal. If your home or building has experienced flooding, the damage can become very widespread and severe. The flooring, walls, furniture, and other building materials quickly soak up flood water which causes warping and other structural damage. Heavy rain and flooding are not the only potential causes of indoor flooding, it can also be caused by burst pipes, leaks, and even a sewage backup. ServiceMaster 24 Hour provides flood damage cleanup services for homes and businesses in St. Petersburg, FL. Our technicians will remove standing water with our state-of-the-art water extraction equipment and we will also clean and sanitize the area once the water is removed.
You must react to any flooding in your home immediately because that much water can quickly cause structural damage. Porous building materials such as drywall, flooring, wood, and others absorb water which causes them to warp or weaken. The damage can become even worse if mold appears. Moisture is the main trigger of mold and flooding can cause widespread mold growth that will increase the amount of damage and threaten the health of those in your home. At ServiceMaster 24 Hour, we have state-of-the-art water extraction equipment that can thoroughly remove standing water. After the water is removed, we will dry the area to prevent mold growth and make sure to clean and sanitize the affected surfaces.

Flood Damage Caused by Sewage Backups
If there is sewage mixed in with the flooding, this can create a very hazardous situation. Flood water may get mixed with sewage water before it reaches your home and sewage backups can also cause sewage to enter your home. Sewage water commonly contains harmful contaminants such as bacteria and waste and any contact with sewage can spread disease or infection. Our technicians have the training and the right equipment to remove sewage water safely. Once the sewage is removed, we will restore and disinfect the damaged area to prevent mold or adverse health effects.
