Sustained Summer Storms Mean Augusta Flood Damage

7/29/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO will always be eager to help you through your Augusta flood damage.

We are always a phone call away for your flood damage in Augusta.

Augusta is frequently in the path of extreme weather systems. Dumping voluminous amounts of rain and generating wind speeds of nearly 80 miles per hour, storms seen already this summer have set the stage for residents to be watchful and wary when the weather changes. If your home suffers significant harm and water invades, lose no time in calling on professional flooding mitigation and remediation services.

Flood damage in Augusta during the hot months can be overwhelming. Our team of Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained managers and technicians prepare for the flooding season and are eager to help you overcome a disastrous situation. Because of our rigorous training, experience, and inventory of state-of-the-art flood mitigation and remediation equipment, we are uniquely qualified to come to your aid.

Expect our crew to arrive as soon as possible with an experienced project manager or crew chief leading the way. A swift and accurate assessment of the damage follows, resulting in a comprehensive and personalized restoration plan. The SERVPRO service vehicles waiting outside have a full complement of water removal and structural drying equipment onboard, along with power generators, cleaning and disinfecting products, and a range of moisture detection tools. We also have materials to secure your property if storm damage affected the exterior’s structural integrity.

Our SERVPRO technicians get to work, ticking off the task on the plan. Pumps and extractors evacuate the floodwater, by definition Category 3 and dangerously contaminated. We follow local rules for containment and disposal of the fluids removed. Thermal scanning leads us to any hidden caches of floodwater, which we access for removal with controlled demolition methods like flood cuts or weep holes. Thorough cleaning and disinfection of affected surfaces with EPA-registered formulations complete next.

Moisture readings provide the data needed to determine drying goals. Heated air movement facilitated by positioning drying equipment appropriately helps drive water from wet structural components into the air as vapor. Evaporative and desiccant dehumidifiers each have their place in condensing or absorbing the vapor for lawful disposal. After meeting drying goals, SERVPRO can help with repairs and rebuilding, offering wrap-around restoration.

Call SERVPRO of Augusta at (706) 750-0200 after the storm passes. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and pledge to return your home to pre-flooding condition quickly and professionally.
