Flood Damage from Stormy Weather in Caldwell Brings More than Water
Contaminants From Tainted Flood Waters Needs SERVPRO for Extraction and Cleanup
A storm is one thing that can scare many young children, but if rising water becomes a part of the situation, many adults often find themselves worried and fearful. This fear runs from the dangers of drowning to damage to their homes in Caldwell and other property, including their vehicles. When there is enough time to escape serious flooding, authorities often evacuate in areas expected to see the worst. Other times, there is little warning, or flooding ends up much worse than anticipated, stranding people in their homes.
When the Boise River crests and overflows its banks, Caldwell is one of the areas hardest hit with subsequent flood damage. However, the problems brought on by flooding do not solely pertain to the water alone. The contamination levels in the River have been the reason for recent lawsuits and the focus of environmental groups.
Many people feel great relief when flood waters recede, but discovering the amount of harmful deposits and sediments remaining reveals the awful state their home is in now. Saturation of walls and waterlogged floors is one problem, but unsanitary conditions, including those that can pose life-threatening risks to occupants, is an entirely different one. Post-flood situations can render homeowners completely unprepared and at a loss of what to do first and how to protect themselves and their children. One concern is if restoration of their home's safety at a microbial level is possible.
The technicians at SERVPRO can restore homes damaged by flooding, at every level, from the support system that forms your home's framework to the tiny nooks and crannies where dangerous microbes and other pathogens settle and hide. We have the tools to measure microbial populations, saving you from the worry that these unwanted health risks might linger in your residence. SERVPRO removes more than water after a flood. Removal of pathogens, sediment, fish and other life from the river, and larger debris is conducted so that your home is once again “Like it never even happened.”
As we are working on your home, we measure the level of moisture to ensure that restorative work goes hand in hand with the many other required aspects of reclaiming your home. Disease-causing pathogens are not the only risk, as mold and mildew can also find a post-flood home the ideal breeding ground. Preventing future damage is an important part of our work in protecting local homeowners' investments.
