Should Saugus Homeowners Cleanup Floodwaters?
If you have flood damage hiring the professionals at SERVPRO is the wise thing to do
Floodwaters can cause a significant amount of damage to homes. One of the biggest problems is the long list of contaminants that can be in the water. Trained water restoration technicians (WRT) are what is needed to ensure reliable, safe cleanup.
What Happens When SERVPRO Arrives?
When we arrive, we thoroughly assess your home to determine the extent of the damage. We then formulate a plan of action to remove the flood water in your Saugus home and begin restoration. When dealing with floodwaters, safety hazards are always a concern. We take the necessary precautions when we begin. Here are some of the steps we take to make sure everything gets done efficiently and safely:
- Check the home for electrical hazards
- Put ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFC) on specific electrical equipment
- Look for hidden moisture pockets to prevent mold
- Perform floodwater testing to determine the contaminant level
- Wear the correct PPE
- Sanitize and disinfect surfaces with antimicrobial agents
Floodwater is not something you should try to clean up on your own. At SERVPRO, we understand the risks and have the expertise and equipment to mitigate the flood damage. Our goal is to leave your home, “Like it never even happened.”
