Getting Your Home More than Dry after Flood Damage in Wetumpka

Most of the properties within Wetumpka that we work on have problems with water from one source or another that adversely affects their interiors. Water, as either moisture or humidity, can cause a wide array of unwanted situations to develop, worsen, and spread. We have equipment that uses the latest technology, and our technicians hold certificates from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

When the water inside your home in Wetumpka comes from destructive floodwaters, the situation calls for more than the typical drying and restoration services. You need debris removal and elimination of the pathogens and other hazards that now occupy space inside your dwelling. 

A flooded property requires several different types of work, and the sooner it happens, the lower we can keep your overall expenses. SERVPRO's specialists concentrate on the structure, the furnishings, and the contents of your home. Looking at these more closely, we see the amount of damage that we can undo, areas where we need to prevent damage from occurring because of raised humidity levels inside flooded homes, and contamination. 

We use the ordinary bucket and shovel method to remove as much silt and other smaller-sized debris items as possible. Medium-pressure streams of water from a hose helps clear out leftover sand and mud, which we work quickly to rinse out of your home. We treat these same surfaces, as well as any other locations left contaminated, with effective disinfectants. Sprayed on, the application goes on evenly. 

We also keep in mind the restoration stage that follows mitigation. Our building services team, General Contractor License # 41839, includes experts in reconstruction. They make sure that the results of our combined services fulfill our customers' needs. As soon as the moisture content of interior materials returns to normal levels, we can begin reconstruction on your home.

The electrical system in your home can end up severely damaged by flooding. Not only does the water render many components dangerous, but the interior of outlet boxes can harbor sediment. We make the necessary repairs and get your house's electricity working safely again. We can also make sure that your drains are clear. Clogs from debris that wash down through your drains need broken apart and cleared. Also, homes should have a qualified professional provide a thorough inspection of their HVAC system after a flooding event affects their home. 

SERVPRO of Prattville's building services provides all these services to smooth things out for you and cover all the bases after a flood. Clean, dry, and rebuilt makes your Tallassee, Millbrook, or Elmore home safe and livable, “Like it never even happened.” Contact our 24-hour emergency services line, (334) 358-1186, any day of the year.

Are You Building Water Damage in Your Prattville Factory?

Commercial Are You Building Water Damage in Your Prattville Factory? You can trust SERVPRO of Prattville for a fast response to all of your water damage restoration needs.

In Addition to Commercial Water Removal Services, Wet Interiors in Prattville Factories Need Restoration

Discovering puddles of water on your factory's floor can start an investigation into the water's source. Drips from overhead might come from the roof, where storms passing over Prattville might have blown water in through cracks along roofing seams or other openings. Other places that might let water into a building include overhead plumbing lines. We have both mitigation crews and building services personnel to handle all your factory's needs.

Businesses in Prattville need commercial water removal services that can arrive promptly. After restoring normal moisture levels, cleaning may not suffice. Rebuilding damaged portions to prevent the enlarging of these areas may need to occur. Our services, under Commercial Contractor License #41839, cover the areas that your factory needs.

Streamlining all of these services for your business, from removing the water causing the problem, to repairing the areas that permitted the breach, reduces both direct expenses and indirect costs. Helping restore normal operations wherever they may have seen interruptions minimizes profit losses. 

Other building services from SERVPRO include plumbing repairs and roofing repairs when the roof over your factory leaks, removing the water brought in by one storm only keeps things safe until the next downpour. Both minor leaks from dripping faucets and major ones from pipes that burst open cause unnecessary expense. Our team can fix these and anything in between.

SERVPRO technicians can also assist with document drying, which helps prevent businesses from losing valuable documents and other paper-based materials. The structure of your facility's office space can also sustain damage because of water, especially flooring. Although we restore the moisture content of all building materials to average percentages, many flooring types require additional restoration care. We can perform this for you, helping reduce your recovery costs. Replacing flooring often costs thousands of dollars more than the expense of restoring those same materials.

From top to bottom, and every inch in between, SERVPRO of Prattville has the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-certified specialists needed to make your factory safe and productive again, “Like it never even happened.” Just like our restoration services, our building services are also available to businesses in Wetumpka, Tallassee, and Millbrook by calling our 24-hour service line, (334) 358-1186, any day of the year.

Flood Damage Cleaning And Restoration In Wetumpka Homes

With the Coosa River running through the heart of our city, Wetumpka residents are familiar with floods. They understand what kind of threats flooding presents to their home and health, and know that they need a professional restoration company to come in and get the job done right. 

With flood damage, Wetumpka homes need thorough cleaning as well as water removal. The extra task is needed since outside water contains soil, fertilizers, animal waste, and other contaminants. SERVPRO response crews train to certify as Water Damage Restoration Technicians, or WRTs, to eliminate and remove every contaminant possible and dispose of items beyond restoration efforts.

Efforts start with spraying the surface of the standing water and all property with an anti-bacterial or an anti-microbial agent to eliminate the possible health threat from bacteria and mold. Depending on the type of surface, technicians may use a sterilant such as bleach.

Next, WRTs remove standing water and floodwater trapped in carpets or covering floors. They accomplish these steps with industrial-grade pumps and smaller extraction devices. All contaminated water removed goes into the nearest sewer access. If an access point is not available, they pump it into a tanker truck for eventual delivery to a water treatment plant.

After removing the water, SERVPRO crew members remove and dispose of all carpets and rugs. It is impossible to provide a 100% guarantee of cleanliness, so this action is the only one team leaders take. The only reason they remove the floodwater is to make disposal easier and safer for the work crews.

Now, the WRTs spray every exposed surface with another chemical agent. They can apply a sterilant on concrete, stone, and linoleum, but use a less-damaging agent on wood floors to protect against accidentally damaging them. After it dries, WRTs use either water or a mild cleaner to remove any residues.

After cleaning, crew members look for water trapped under floors and behind walls. To remove it, they spray the sub-floor and wall cavities with a chemical agent and then remove it all with small extraction devices and a hose.

At SERVPRO of Prattville, we cover a large area, including other towns like Elmore, Millbrook, and Tallassee. It is our privilege to help return homes here, and in other areas, to a clean and dry condition after flood damage. If you need us, call today at (334) 358-1186 to get started.

Fire Damage A Space Heater Threatened my Wetumpka Home Don’t let the aftermath of a fire threaten you, call SERVPRO !

Let us take the threat.

Home should be the place where we feel safest. It is where we leave behind the challenges of the day to enjoy some peace. What we often fail to acknowledge is that there are threats within our home that can break that peace. Take, for example, a space heater left too close to flammable materials; resulting in flames that could burn down our house. Even if these kinds of accidents are not worthy of being on the nightly newscast, the fire damage and its restoration are best left to professionals. 

In Wetumpka, if you have fire damage SERVPRO is your ally. Our fire restoration technicians (FRT) hold credentials by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification(IICRC), and this training complements our experience on the field. When disaster strikes, we bring the latest in technology and methodology to return your home to pristine conditions. 

As easy as it may seem to clean smoke and soot residue by yourself, it takes a professional group such as SERVPRO to achieve a thorough clean up process. Merely applying a cleaning solution to your belongings may not be enough to eliminate its traces. Furthermore, abrasive cleaning solutions may exacerbate the damage and leave your furniture and property in worse shape than before. Our Green Fleet understands the type and path of smoke and acts accordingly. Natural elements such as wood, leaving behind a fine dust-like residue, whereas polymers leave behind a stickier residue that requires specialized solutions to remove them from your home. 

Even beyond eliminating visible residue, our SERVPRO team works hard to eliminate odors left behind by the fire. We have at our disposal an array of equipment used to tailor the deodorizing solution to your specific needs. Examples of equipment we use include: 

-Deodorizing pellets 

-Ozone generators 

-Air scrubbers 

-Pressure sprayers

How Prattville Professionals in Remediate Wet Smoke Damage

5/28/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Damage How Prattville Professionals in Remediate Wet Smoke Damage Different types of fires create distinctive smoke residue. SERVPRO can test the damage to determine the best cleaning method to restore your home.

Recognition and Remediation of Wet Smoke Fire Damage in Prattville

A slow burning fire frequently presents more of a challenge than those that burn quickly. If a fire is left unattended, then the levels of smoke damage tend to be wet smoke predominately. These circumstances might occur by leaving an appliance like a hob or iron on when leaving the house. Wet smoke particles are much tougher to clean than faster-burning dry smoke residues, but with professional assistance, you can get your home back to its preloss condition.

Slow burning fire damage in Prattville residences is usually identifiable by a pre-test. SERVPRO technicians conduct these tests to understand what types of smoke we are dealing with and what procedure to take to ensure an efficient service. Although both wet and dry smoke is present in house fires, a large amount of either type allows us to determine the damages as predominantly wet or dry. We can also recognize and remediate protein fires as well as those caused by furnace puff back.

Slow burning fires which draw in fewer air currents create wet smoke deposits. The low level of air occurring during a slow burning fire means that the smoke deposits have more time to work into cavities around the home. These crevices are usually harder to reach and therefore, harder to remediate. Aerosols can also weaken finished surfaces and penetrate those that are non-finished.

When a SERVPRO technician recognizes wet smoke residues in the property, the first course of action is to use chemical agents alongside agitative cleaning methods. Unfortunately, these are not always effective, and we may need to strip and refinish surfaces around the home, including walls and ceilings. In some cases, replacement may be required to remove wet smoke deposits altogether, but we promise to work with a restore rather than replace method that keeps your claim rates low.

When you need restoration of wet smoke damage, contact SERVPRO of Prattville at (334) 358-1186.

Guaranteed No Stress Flood Damage Restoration in Your Wetumpka Home

Storm Damage Guaranteed No Stress Flood Damage Restoration in Your Wetumpka Home Flood damage can happen at the most inopportune times. Contact SERVPRO today for all flood damage remediation needs.

Where to Get Restoration After Flood Damage in Your Wetumpka Home

Flooding is a problem that no one wants to encounter. Unfortunately, buildings close to a river can flood after the river breaks its banks. Severe thunderstorms and hurricanes can also cause flash flooding in cities. Flood waters can ruin your belongings and affect your home’s structure, resulting in expensive repairs.

If your Wetumpka home has flood damage, you can hire a professional water damage restoration company to reduce the destruction. An experienced company like SERVPRO can remove the water and dry your property quickly. We can use portable pumps to remove as much standing water as possible from a home to expedite the drying process.

Once we remove the water, we can conduct moisture readings for the floors, ceilings, and walls to determine which areas need drying. The moisture readings also enable our technicians to estimate how long the drying process can take and when you can return to your home. We can also heat the affected areas. Drying occurs faster when rooms are heated to 70 to 90 degrees because hot air can hold high levels of moisture. We can use portable heaters if a home heating system is not functioning. We then use dehumidifiers to remove the moisture from the air.

Our SERVPRO technicians can also perform some repairs after completing the water cleanup and drying process. Where it’s the hardwood flooring or walls that have sustained damage, our restorers can make them look like new again. If the floodwaters have soaked into your carpet, we can remove and discard it since flood waters usually have bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. If the damage is serious, we can work with subcontractors to perform the necessary repairs. Our technicians are compassionate and can ensure that your home is restored exactly the way you want it. We have the expertise to make the damage seem “Like it never even happened.”

When dealing with flood damage in your home, SERVPRO of Prattville can assist you to restore the property to its preloss, safe, healthy and clean conditions. Our staff has sophisticated equipment to deal with water and its potential complications. Contact us through our twenty-four-hour helpline at (334) 358-1186 for prompt restoration.

Water Damage When Storms Bring Water Inside Your Tallahassee Home Are you ready for spring and summer storms? Call SERVPRO of Prattville to remediate any storm damage

Reliable Water Removal in a Tallahassee Rental Home

While May in Alabama only averages a few inches of rain compared to the summer, a lot can happen during those springtime showers. When a tree limb falls on your roof and causes a ceiling leak that affects your hardwood floor, for example, you may suddenly have much more to worry about that just patching up your roofing. Rainwater can invite in a myriad of structural maladies on top of the risk of mold. Worse still, water in your hardwood can affect your subflooring and damage both layers of the floor in your home.  

If roof damage after a storm requires water removal in your Tallassee residence, the technicians at SERVPRO are ready to assist you. We are Faster To Any Size Disaster so your home can be restored to its pre-damage condition in as little as 24 hours thanks to our emergency response team.  

After extracting any free water with portable, extractors or a wet/dry vacuum and moving and cleaning any furniture or other items affected by water, we can get to work on your waterlogged ceiling. Small vent holes can be drilled to both remove water and allow for better ventilation. Air movers and low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers are used in tandem to pull up moisture and replace it with warm, dry air to safely remove storm water from porous surfaces such as wood, and drywall.  

Hardwood flooring is salvageable with the help of a large sheet of 6-millimeter plastic or polyethylene and specialized drying equipment. This sheeting creates a separate space for moisture pulled up by air movers and dehumidifiers for more effective water extraction. A well-isolated chamber that traps moisture for removal is also vital for preserving the plywood subflooring under your hardwood.  

SERVPRO of Prattville is ready to mitigate disasters that occur in your home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Give us a call today at (334) 358-1186 to leave your home clean and free of moisture once more.

Cleaning Up Flood Damage in Wetumpka is a Messy Job

The darkened skies during a torrential downpour can bring darkened water into homes around Wetumpka and leave them soaked with mud and silt. Among the soils deposited, homeowners often find waterlogged plants, other organic materials, and garbage that became washed into their homes. Because SERVPRO is a locally owned and operated business, we understand the possibilities that rainstorms can cause in our area.

When a customer calls us about their house because it sustained flood damage in Wetumpka, we assure them that we can get their home back to normal again. Flooding leaves messes behind that the CDC considers extremely harmful and full of possible unwanted health effects for anyone who comes into contact with the water from flooding, or saturated materials after the waters recede. To avoid these risks, our team members all have their own personal protective equipment (PPE) and other safety gear.

Once we arrive, we do our initial inspection and consultation with you. As our inspector does this, our team members begin unloading our Green Fleet of the necessary equipment. We use buckets, shovels, rakes, brushes, and hoses to rid your home of the flood's filth. Getting things clean again takes time, and we do not want to waste any in getting started.

Because many items, like electronics and other electricity-using appliances, can become damaged if not cared for correctly, we call one of our trusted partners to inspect and test these items for you. We provide the initial cleanup of these items, making them safe for our partners to handle, however. The same applies to electrical systems and plumbing, as well as gas lines.

We often prepare an area where our partners can safely work, while other times, the item might need transporting to their site for more detailed inspections and repair work. This also protects your belongings from possible cross-contamination or other damage while we work, as well as providing us with additional space to work in your home that we would not have access to, otherwise.

SERVPRO of Prattville has dedicated specialists and partners who want to help your family recover after flood damage makes your home unlivable. Contact us at (334) 358-1186 if your home is in the Autaugaville, Elmore, or Eclectic areas for more information and fast service by experienced professionals.
