We are a leading team for storm damage cleanup and recovery. We have a fast response and can manage the needs of your house to make these emergencies “Like it never even happened.”

How Can Storm Damage Cleanup Help? 

Muck-out cleaning and storm damage cleanup for Raleigh homes mirrors the importance of services like fire debris removal after a structure fire in area properties. The objective is to determine the full extent of damage to the property, the necessary restorative action, and prevent the situation from worsening. Removing mud and debris caked to surfaces and contents in your home after floodwater exposure and structural deterioration can be a way to protect these items from irreparable harm. We provide swift cleanup solutions that begin our mitigation process for storm damage cleanup and flood restoration.

With many areas of your home becoming impacted by severe weather conditions, such as the roof or the basement, varying cleanup needs exist. Damage to the attic of your home requires insulation removal and temporary roof tarping, while basement flooding might clean up broken masonry and infiltrating mud/silt.

Do Water Removal Services Happen Before Debris Removal?

There is an urgent need to remove standing water when it exists in any home after flooding or water damage. Because pooling water can quickly absorb and saturate exposed materials, moisture migration could become a significant obstacle to overcome without swift solutions like floodwater extraction. Before storm damage cleanup of debris and building material remnants can begin, standing water concerns must first get addressed. Several inches of water can often prevent responding technicians from thoroughly assessing the damage and the necessary restoration actions to help.

Removing floodwater after storm damage requires extractors capable of managing high volumes of standing water and potential solids and debris that might be present as well. Natural flooding introduces several types of organic matter into the household, along with possible contaminants, mud, and silt. Before much of this muck-out cleaning can begin in the home, any pooling water present must get removed. Several of the extraction devices used for this type of water removal services are:

  • Truck-mount extractors
  • Wet vacuums
  • Self-priming trash pumps

Is Structural Damage Addressed with Storm Damage Cleanup?

Among the most potentially problematic situations that could result from storm damage and subsequent flooding is the impact on building materials and structural elements. Prolonged exposure to these surfaces can lead to deterioration and degradation, making cleaning and repairs a costly and time-consuming venture. While many homeowners must pursue subcontractors to resolve the reconstruction needs of their house, our SERVPRO professionals provide a full-service experience with our general contractor license.

Post-flood and storm damage cleanup involves many steps and stages beginning as soon as our professionals arrive at the scene. We understand the urgency for your home and can mobilize quickly after disaster strikes. Give our SERVPRO of Southeast Raleigh / Garner team a call anytime at (919) 615-1179
