Protecting the Contents of Your Dallas Home from Flood Damage

7/7/2019 (Permalink)

Let SERVPRO help you save your contents.

Flood damage can destroy your contents.

Content management is an often-overlooked aspect of flood recovery for Dallas properties. While many homeowners worry about getting the occupants of their house to safety in the event of these emergencies, little gets done initially about the personal belongings exposed to the worsening conditions within a property. Within a brief period of direct exposure, many of the irreplaceable possessions of a home become too badly affected to preserve with even the advanced techniques and equipment available to our professionals. 

Addressing the effect to the items in your home and other flood damage in Dallas properties, a full inspection and assessment must get performed as promptly as possible. By choosing our SERVPRO professionals to do this inspection, you get the full measure of our advanced equipment and practices, including our array of moisture content readers and hygrometers that can identify dampness even behind walls, ceilings, and floors. An understanding of the extent of this damage can help our professionals to develop an appropriate plan to reduce loss and to restore the property fast. 

Our contents department earmarks specific items exposed to the flood effects for removal or relocation. In many cases, these items must get moved to our nearby SERVPRO facility. There, our professionals can utilize our full inventory of recovery equipment and techniques, working to promptly dry, disinfect, and safely store these belongings until they can get returned to the restored property. 

Not all of the items that could end up at risk in the property must be removed from the premises. With the appropriate mitigation efforts, areas of the home unaffected by the disaster can serve as temporary storage for relocated furniture and possessions. Only the damaged or affected contents of your home need the focused cleaning and restoration efforts of our technicians in our climate-controlled facility. 

Protecting your belongings during a flood disaster can be challenging, but our SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas contents department knows what to do. From removing at-risk items to minimize the spread of harmful contaminants, we can make these flood effects “Like it never even happened.” We are available 24/7 by calling  (214) 361-7887.
