What You Should Expect From a Restorer during Flood Damage in Garden District
Flood damage is not something to look forward to, but when it does happen, you should take remedial action immediately. Hiring a professional restorer is a great way to respond to such an incident. You should consider certain aspects before choosing to work with a recovery and cleanup company.
Some cases of flood damage in Garden District can happen or grow worse because of some failures by the property owner. Failures from clogged gutters and drains or problems with the foundation of the structure are some of the issues likely to worsen flooding incidents. When a restoration company points out such weak points, it is reassuring because you know they care about your long term welfare and not just the paycheck. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect flooded properties to establish any underlying issues. We also recommend upgrades such as the installation of check valves to prevent problems such as sewage backup if deemed necessary.
When restoring flood damage, there is a need to pay attention to city regulations. Many cases involve partial demolition and reconstruction of parts of the structure affected by the water. If not done correctly, the homeowner can end up violating building codes. Disposal of wastes and porous materials from the affected property should also conform to city codes. Some of the hazardous waste that requires special disposal includes water containing raw sewage and materials such as soiled carpets. Our SERVPRO technicians use heavy-duty plastic bags to store carpets removed from the property for safe disposal. We also liaise with septic tank companies in case there is a need for special disposal of wastewater.
Restoring flood damage requires sufficient resources for a fast and effective turnaround. These resources include water extraction equipment, cleaning equipment for surfaces such as floors and walls and contents such as upholstery as well as enough people to run different tasks. SERVPRO invests in the various state of the art equipment including truck mounted water extractors, powered floor scrubbers, air movers and dehumidifiers. Our crew members are also IICRC certified, so they have the necessary skills for the job. The most crucial aspect of flood water cleanup is to establish a safe, clean, and disinfected environment for your family.
