Water damage in a home varies in severity depending on the cause and extent. When a home or building is affected by flooding, the effects can be very severe. Indoor flooding is often caused by natural flooding and heavy rain, and it can also result from an overflow, sewage backup, or burst pipe. The excess water can quickly cause intense structural damage as it gets absorbed into the various building materials. ServiceMaster 24 Hour provides flood damage restoration services in Tampa, FL to help homes and businesses recover from flood and storm damage. We use advanced equipment to remove standing water as well as clean and disinfect the flooded area.
Any amount of water in your home or building can be destructive, but flood water causes excessive damage very quickly. Commonly used building materials such as wood, drywall, and flooring absorb water which causes buckling, discoloration, and other structural damage. These materials are also vulnerable to mold growth as they continue to absorb water. The technicians of ServiceMaster 24 Hour use the best water extraction equipment available to effectively remove standing flood water. Once the majority of the water has been removed, we will completely dry the affected materials with our advanced drying and dehumidification equipment.
Our flood damage restoration services include the following steps:
- Full Evaluation: We will fully evaluate the entire home or building to determine the true extent of the flooding. Our crew will create a restoration plan based on the evaluation to remove the flood water and cleanup the affected area.
- Advanced Equipment: We use only the best water extraction and drying equipment as well as effective cleaning products.
- Thorough Drying: We make sure to remove all excess water using our advanced drying and dehumidification equipment from the furnishings, structural elements, and air spaces of your home.
- Odor Removal: We will disinfect the flooded area and remove any odors left from the water or mold.
Flood Damage from Sewage Backups
Sometimes the flood water in a home or building may contain sewage. Flood water from a storm can mix with sewage as it seeps into your home, and it is also possible to experience flooding from a sewage backup. If you believe that the flood water in your home may contain sewage, do not make contact with the water. Sewage backup contains dangerous contaminants and waste that can spread illness or infection. Our technicians are properly trained and equipped to safely extract sewage water and restore the affected area. We use effective cleaning products to clean and disinfect the area once the sewage is removed and reduce the risk of illness or infection.
