Why SERVPRO Fixes Flood Damage In Conway Effectively

When a flood affects your Conway property, various problems follow, so it is essential to do restoration properly. Such refurbishment involves many steps, and sometimes the problems that you face later could result from missing some steps or doing them at the wrong time. Our IICRC certified restoration crew has experience spanning many years allowing us to know the necessary steps, as well as the best time to do them.

Before starting the restoration of flood damage in Conway properties, it is a good idea to do a thorough inspection, which helps ascertain the level of damage and identify any present dangers. It is common to encounter electrical hazards, deteriorating subfloors and even falling ceilings among other hazards after a flood. Our SERVPRO technicians also use this opportunity to secure the structure through steps such as boarding up, or installing roof tarps if there is a breach.

The risk of mold development in a flooded property is very high. Mold needs less than 48 hours of high moisture levels to start growing. It can grow on several types of surfaces including wood, concrete, and fabrics among others, so water removal and drying are high priority steps because it is an effective way to control mold growth. Our SERVPRO crew uses pumps to remove standing water more than two inches deep. We also have truck-mounted extractors allowing us to remove standing water from all nooks crannies around the property. Extracting more water helps quicken the drying process.

Floodwaters contain different contaminants, so it is necessary to take steps to control them. By Spraying an EPA-registered disinfectant into affected areas, it is easier to control disease-causing microorganisms. Our SERVPRO technicians also remove porous materials such as carpet and pad because cleaning cannot eliminate all contaminants. Since soiled carpets are considered hazardous materials, we also handle disposal. First, we cut the carpet and pad to pieces 2x2 foot each. We then place them into plastic bags for transport to the disposal site.

A properly laid out restoration process after flooding improves the results by a considerable margin. Call SERVPRO of Conway / Holden Heights to assist you. You can reach us easily through (407) 985-3200 any time of the day.
