Crucial Steps that Help Manage Storm Flood Damage Incidents in Augusta

Getting caught up in a storm is never a pleasant experience. When the rains, wind, and groundwater stops flowing, you may be happy that the worst is over, but in many cases, it is the beginning of a tiresome recovery process. Focusing on completing some steps during the restoration of storm flood damage ensures the recovery process achieves the desired goals.

Thorough Water Extraction

Water intrusion into unwanted areas during storm flood damage incidents in Augusta is the main problem many homeowners face. Complete restoration is only possible after removing all the water. Removal can be complicated by issues such as the volume of water involved, presence of residues in the water, and intrusion into concealed areas. Our SERVPRO technicians use different resources to address these issues. We have pumps with a significant lift capacity to expedite removal. We also have trash pumps that can remove water with solids.

Demolition to Reach Hidden Areas

Various assemblies around the house can hold the stormwater after the initial intrusion. The main problem areas include wall base areas, stairs, flooring, voids, and built-in fixtures. Removing some construction components in such areas helps create the necessary access to extract water and clean any soiling left by the stormwater. Our SERVPRO technicians have the necessary building skills and tools to disassemble constructions around your house without causing unnecessary damages.

Decontaminating Non-Porous Surfaces

Contamination is a common outcome of storm flood damage, especially when intrusion involves groundwater. Even in other cases, there is a need to address contamination since microbial growth happens in stagnant water given sufficient time. Our SERVPRO technicians use disinfectants and antimicrobial agents during the cleaning process to decontaminate non-porous surfaces. We also use luminometers to check for contaminant remnants on cleaned surfaces.

Storms lead to several inconveniences, but a proper response helps manage the damage. Call SERVPRO of Augusta at (706) 750-0200 to help clean up, decontaminate and dry your home, eliminating all traces of the incident, "Like it never even happened."
