Heavy rain, flooded yard. Car driving through significantly flooded street Flooding in Florida is a given. When the frequent storms invade your home, call SERVPRO.

Professional Integrity and Protocols Are Why SERVPRO Handles St. Petersburg Flood Damage Successfully 

Extreme weather in St. Petersburg places homeowners at risk of significant water damage to their residences. As high winds gather energy and torrential rains fall, water finds many avenues inside your home. Trees or other debris can damage your home’s exterior, leading to gallons of rain pouring inside. Saturated soil surrounding your house illustrates the principle of wet to dry, water seeping into foundations or crawl spaces.  

First Steps -- Securing the Premises and Assessment  

When we arrive at your home in St Petersburg evaluation of flood damage begins. While our experienced project manager walks through, our crew boards up broken windows and doors and starts water extraction. The confidence our crew has from the onset of the project through final touches is why we receive high marks from former customers.  

Decisions About Controlled Demolition  

One challenge faced in a flood damage scenario is how to access water that migrated through the many porous materials in your home. Drywall, wood, and even concrete and cinder blocks permit water to pass through, trapping it inside building cavities. Because flood water is by definition Category 3 or the most contaminated, it is particularly vital to extract and contain for disposal as hazardous waste, even the hidden water. The skill our technicians bring when making flood cuts and weep holes to release the water is why SERVPRO is a highly sought after and reliable flood damage recovery partner.  

Precise Drying Plans and Disinfection 

After the bulk of the floodwater exits your home, we use data gathered using sensitive moisture measuring devices to make drying plans. Not only do we take levels of the saturated components, but we also compare them with measurements taken of unaffected but similar structures elsewhere in your home. We set up air movers and heaters, to facilitate the movement of water from building materials into the air. Dehumidifiers then condense or absorb the vapor for permanent removal from the premises. Disinfection with EPA-registered antimicrobials is a final step.  

Comprehensive services and adherence to industry best practices is SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg is the restoration to call for flood damage. Our number at (727) 522-0000 answers day or night.
