Talk to SERVPRO Technicians to Mitigate the Flood Damage in Your Raleigh Home.

Flooding can pose health hazards to the residents of a home and lead to costly destruction if you delay the restoration process. After a storm causes a flood in your home, seek help from restoration experts to avoid additional damage in your Raleigh property.

Why should I hire SERVPRO technicians?

We have a team of competent technicians who have mastered cutting edge restoration techniques that can mitigate the storm flood damage in your Raleigh home. We use advanced equipment and tools to restore houses after flood damage. The equipment also enables our technician to speed up the flood damage mitigation and restoration process.

How do professional restorers ensure the property is safe?

Before beginning the restoration process, we check if there are hazards like sunken ceilings and live electricity lines in the affected property. Our crew chief also assesses the property and determines which work activities should take place. Our technicians observe the property for structural damage to determine if it is safe to enter. We check areas such as:

Walls and floors

Basement

Electrical systems

Furnishings and carpets

Should I contact an electrician?

When homes flood, we recommend that the homeowners avoid the flooded area since it poses an electrical danger. It is essential to turn off the main power supply and avoid getting into contact with the floodwater. Contacting an electrician is also advisable. The professional can examine if the flooding has affected your electrical system.

How do you speed up the drying process?

Drying a home is a critical step during the restoration process. Since there is no electricity supply in your property, our experts can use portable generators to power water extraction and drying equipment. We can use electric submersible pumps to extract water from your house. If the floodwater contains dirt and debris, we can use a self-priming trash pump because it can pass solids like leaves, sand, and dead plants. It extracts excess water from the home, leaving only moisture, which we remove using air moving and dehumidifying equipment.

We can also dry the affected areas using portable electric heaters. These devices expedite the drying process, particularly of wooden materials. Nevertheless, heating some materials directly can ruin them. Therefore, our technicians use sandbags to prevent the heat from destroying the surfaces and materials we are drying. 

Flood damage can lead to costly repairs if not handled on time. Talk to SERVPRO of Southeast Raleigh / Garner at (919) 615-1179 to restore your flood-damaged property. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
