Attic Flooding Concerns for St. Petersburg Homes

Because of how often St. Petersburg homes and businesses find themselves in the path of destruction for powerful and devastating storm systems, it is not unlikely to expect to contend with flooding and other related circumstances over the life of your property. When roofs become damaged by a weather event, the vulnerability can quickly expand to allow runoff and direct torrential rainfall to penetrate the attic space. In homes where this area has gotten finished with drywall and is a livable space, this can be an even costlier loss incident.

As hazardous and stressful as flood damage in St. Petersburg homes can be, we are among the most well-equipped and experienced professionals in the restoration industry. We have education and accreditations from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in both Applied Structural Drying (ASD) and as Water Restoration Technicians (WRT.) This experience and education drive our team to provide confident and efficient recovery solutions.

While flooding might occur in the attic space, it does not take long for this damage to migrate without the appropriate containment solutions. We have effective extraction and drying tools that we can use even in this confined area to prevent the spread of water damage to the lower levels of your house. In situations where the moisture has gotten trapped between the floor of the attic and the ceiling of your first or second floor, we can deploy positive pressure systems to force air into these structural vacancies and dry them out.

Among the most substantial concerns with roof, vulnerabilities are the persistent exposure to dampness and moisture until the area can get reconstructed and repaired. To prevent situations like microbial growth from the beginning, we can spray exposed surfaces and materials with our antimicrobial spray that can eliminate a concentration of spores and make the material uninhabitable to spores attempting to colonize.

You cannot predict how vulnerable your home might become a passing severe storm, but you can choose the right team to help you deal with the aftermath. No matter how severe the flooding in your house, our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg can make it “Like it never even happened.” Give our technicians a call anytime at (727) 522-0000.
