Steps to Efficient Flood Damage Cleanup in Your Cadwell Home

When flooding occurs in your property, it can start ruining building materials and the possessions in it within a short time. The aftermath of flooding is also often as damaging as or even worse than the flooding itself. Flooding may slowly weaken the frames and foundation of your home or cause septic materials to back up into it.

If you are dealing with flood damage in your Cadwell home, it is essential to hire skilled professionals to remove the water, dry, and sanitize the property. A trusted restoration firm like SERVPRO has the equipment and workforce to clean up your home. We recognize the need for decisive and quick action, and that’s why we are highly responsive and easily accessible when you need our services.

Floodwater can pose a bacterial threat to you, your family, and pets because it collects many hazardous substances as it flows. We classify it as category 3 water. Our restorers can take steps to ensure that the water does not endanger your health by removing it quickly, using chemicals to destroy contaminants, and throwing away ruined items that are impossible to salvage. We can also use a luminometer to test surfaces for organic contamination.

To remove the water, our technicians can use self-priming trash pumps or electric submersible pumps. Removing as much water as possible from your home can quicken drying time. The main problem in a flooded house is that even after removing the water, there could be moisture in the walls, floors, ceiling, and furniture, among other items. If you assume that the affected parts of your house are dry when they are not, serious consequences can happen. For instance, mold can grow one or two days after the floodwater has entered your home, causing health effects. It is crucial to dry the house thoroughly to pull out the absorbed moisture.

Our SERVPRO technicians have advanced devices that can detect moisture in different materials. This equipment enables us to address all the water-damaged areas of your house that you might miss. Some tools we can use to track moisture within your home include:

    •    Infrared cameras
    •    Moisture sensors
    •    Moisture meters
    •    Thermal-hygrometers

We can remove moisture using air movers and dehumidifiers. Our technicians can then clean and sanitize your home using antimicrobial products to eliminate microbes. After completing the restoration work, we can leave your home in a suitable condition for rebuilding work. We can subcontract the work to licensed contractors who can use materials that match the design and finishes of the building materials in your home.

Addressing flooding promptly helps prevent severe destruction to a home. You can turn to SERVPRO of Nampa / Caldwell for prompt and professional services in Nampa and neighboring areas. You can reach us at (208) 466-5000.
