When Floods Strike Your Phoenix Home, SERVPRO Strikes Back
Flood Removal Services in Phoenix Help Save Homes from More Extensive Damage
Sources that create flooding in Phoenix homes do not always require lakes and rivers, as clogged drains along streets can also cause minor incidents to happen in neighborhoods. Street cleaners attempt to prevent this, but large amounts of debris can cause overflowing to encroach lawns if water draining along the roadside pushes it into the drain's area.
When your home in the Phoenix area ends up with water from the street covering your floors, you need experts who know how to perform flood removal and extraction services to make your home safe and livable again. At SERVPRO, we train using a variety of materials found in homes to ensure we know how to manage any amount of flooding that might occur. Restoring our customers' properties to their preloss condition is our goal.
Extracting water faster than it can recede protects your home from the continual evaporation that standing water does inside your house. When flooding affects your home, immediate damage happens when walls become saturated. Carpets absorb not only water but also pathogens, chemicals, and organic matter. We remove these items from your home to make cleaning and drying can happen more efficiently.
However, we want to remove as little as possible, as replacement items almost always cost more than restoring those same items costs. Cleaning carpets to preloss condition and dealing with crumbling drywall are two exceptions to this. Cabinets in your kitchen and bathroom can sustain short periods in the presence of water before becoming damaged and require replacement. The same is true for hardwood flooring. We need to act quickly to save these from unnecessary damage by removing the excess water. Once we do this and start to restore dryness inside your home, we can check to see how extensive the damage became on these and other items.
Stairways made of wood can become warped when water invades, but drying the area can decrease any twisting to within acceptable limits. The same occurs with wood furniture, although any pieces made of particle board almost always become too swollen to remain safely in the home. Swollen areas can mean the glue that held the piece's boards together disintegrated. This can result in crumbling, which also leaves choking hazards that you want to avoid to protect any toddlers or curious pets.
