How Our Experts At SERVPRO Help You Cope After A Flood Causes Damage To Your Conway Home

Floods can be very destructive, but with professional help, it is easier to cope.

Coping With The Effects Of Flood Damage In Conway

Floods can happen any time there is a torrential downpour. Because of paving and other infrastructure in a city setting, the ground barely absorbs the rainwater, leaving a significant percentage to flow freely. Constraints or blockages in the drainage systems can redirect the water to properties, damaging them. We offer cleanup and restoration services that can help you cope with the damage that occurs in your Conway home.
 
When dealing with incidents of flood damage in Conway, you need to address several issues simultaneously. These might include removal of mud or silt dumped by the water, removing porous materials like carpets that were submerged by the floodwaters and drying the structure among other issues. IICRC certification means the SERVPRO crew that helps you restore your structure is trained to handle all these aspects guaranteeing a positive outcome.
 
Since every flooding incident is unique, the planned response must also be unique. This is why an exhaustive inspection of the affected property is necessary. It is not advisable for the homeowner to enter a flooded property to do such inspection because of the risks involved. For example, if the power is still on, there is a risk of electrocution. Floodwaters are also heavily contaminated with sewage and other hazardous chemicals. Our SERVPRO technicians are experienced in handling such situations, so we take all necessary precautions including turning the power off before venturing into the affected property. We also wear protective clothing such as boots, rubbers gloves and full body suits among others.
 
Inspection helps establish the level of damage determining the resources needed for the task. If there is a lot of mud and silt, tools like shovels are needed for removal. If the water level is high, it may be necessary to tear down drywall and remove porous materials such as insulation. Our SERVPRO technicians perform a flood-cut 2 feet about the water line allowing easy access to the wall cavity. We also use various moisture detection tools to determine how much the water affects different materials. Other tools like thermal hygrometers help determine the level of humidity in affected and unaffected areas around the property.
