Steps That Improve Flood Damage Removal In Dallas
Floods can happen in different ways including sustained downpour that leads to rising water reaching unwanted areas in your Dallas property. Flash floods could also happen when it rains in a different area if your property lies on the flow path of the floodwaters. All incidents of flooding cause damages, but the extent might differ depending on the cause. We offer professional restoration that includes structural drying, mold prevention, and remediation, among other services.
Recovery from flood damage removal in Dallas involves different steps, so it is essential to prioritize specific steps. Doing so helps reduce the chances of secondary damage, or quickens the process altogether. What causes the incident plays a role in what you are likely to prioritize. Incidents involving rising water may require removal of items to a high section in the same property, or an offsite storage facility. In case of short-term, but torrential downpour that floods the property, extracting the water helps protect contents from additional damage and reduces the overall time it takes to restore the property. Our SERVPRO technicians are equipped with high capacity water extractors and pumps. We also handle move outs easily.
Floodwaters contain a wide range of contaminants from the simple silt and mud to the more dangerous ones like raw sewage and industrial toxins collected as the water flows over different locations. Since removing the water does not remove these contaminants automatically, there is a need to take specific steps to deal with the contaminants. Our SERVPRO technicians use various approaches to achieve the intended goal. We spray EPA-registered disinfectants immediately after arriving at the damaged property. We also use power washers to remove soils and debris mechanically or professional cleaning agents for chemical removal.
Floodwaters reach all nooks and crannies in the affected property. Most of it pools in open areas where removal through extraction is easy. However, some of the water reaches hidden sections in the property including wall cavities, below floorboards among other areas. Removal in such cases requires more than just a pump. Our SERVPRO crews utilize different techniques including performing flood cuts and drilling weep holes among other steps that help ease access to the floodwater.
