Heavy Rain, High Wind and Lightning
Florida storms can be powerful and dangerous. Do you know who to call if you have storm damage to your home?
What can you do to minimize the damage to your home in Bradenton or Anna Maria Island? The first step is to call a specialist who can restore your home using the proper equipment. Here is what happens when you use a professional service to help with your flooded basement.
1. Find the Source:
The first thing that any professional is going to do is find the source of your flooding. If you already know where the leak is coming from, you can, of course, point them in the right direction. In some cases, it may be difficult to tell where the leak is coming from on your own.
2. Extract Water:
The next step is to extract the water. Experts will have equipment with them that you may not have access to on your own. For example, some people may have a sump pump in their home, but many don’t. Generally, before they can begin to restore the property, specialists will use a trash pump mounted to their truck to extract the flooding in your basement.
3. Salvage Any Materials:
If there are any materials that can be salvaged, they will do this for you. Additionally, they will be able to throw out what can’t be saved. This can be anything from drywall, carpets, stuffed animals, bedding and even ceiling tiles. If it’s porous, mold can grow inside the spaces of the object and be impossible to clean.
Before mold or other issues cost you more contact SERVPRO West Bradenton / Anna Maria (941) 792-7715. The longer water is left standing, the more likely mold growth will become a problem.
