SERVPRO® Mitigates Destructive Flooding From Storms

Storms do not have to come from hurricanes to leave homes and shops in Clearwater soaked. When runoff patterns have changed or are blocked, flood damage can happen with regular rainfall.

Let SERVPRO of Clearwater mitigate the flood damage on your property. We are Faster to any size disaster™ and come prepared to start the mitigation process. There are several facets of flood damage, including water damage, odors, and microbial infestations. We partner with you to ensure we answer all your questions and concerns.

The first steps to mitigating flood damage, especially after a storm, focus on ensuring safety, rinsing and clearing debris, and spraying disinfectant agents to minimize risk. Additional measures include:

  • Extracting standing water,
  • Drying the structure and
  • Odor control measures.

Drying happens faster when there is less water, so extracting water goes a long way toward protecting your residence from flooding, mold, and water damage. We also go after water in hidden spots, including under cabinets with built-in floors and within the lowest portion of stairwells.

Just as in situations involving water damage, we use heat and intensified airflow to remove moisture from the air and contents inside the structure. Warmer air increases how fast moisture evaporates, making it possible to push it through one of our desiccant machines. 

Clean water can cause fiercely sharp odors, but flood damage can leave your home smelling so much worse. SERVPRO's odor control technicians (OCTs) use different methods to fight these odors. Eliminating the cause of an odor is not always possible, so masking techniques might be the only option until the odor naturally dissipates. We discuss which scents your family likes best and then apply them strategically. Charcoal pellets can absorb several odors, making them a safe standby for foul odors.

When you need an expert mitigation team to protect your home from flood damage, call SERVPRO of Clearwater South / Clearwater Beach at (727) 614-0099.
