Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Did the Recent Storms Bring a Mountain of Water into Your Garrison Home?

8/23/2019 (Permalink)

Virginia often experiences heavy rains that can cause flooding. Call SERVPRO of North Stafford County to handle all of your water damage restoration.

Training, Equipment, and Experience Are Why SERVPRO Is a Flood Damage Standby in Garrisonville 

Residential flooding is frightening and overwhelming to Garrisonville homeowners. Usually connected to heavy rainfall, runoff from the hilly area surrounding the region can introduce highly contaminated and silt-filled water into the lower levels of your home. Storm activity can damage roofs, break windows, and destroy siding, allowing rainwater to flow inside. Not only do homeowners need water removal and structural drying, but they also require repairs and rebuilding (General Contractor, Residential, Commercial Licenses #: 2705165256.) A flooding event restoration has many phases, why we are uniquely qualified to help. 

Debris and Dirt Contaminate and Complicate Flood Damage Recovery 

Overland flood damage in Garrisonville can require shovels before pumps. Mud and residues bring decaying organic matter and highly hazardous items such as dead animals and landscaping and pavement chemicals into your home. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained crew members use practical strategies for ridding your home of solids, scooping and hauling the contaminants away. Then submersible pumps and wanded extractors remove the fluids from the flooded spaces. 

Containment and Disposal of Hazardous Waste 

It is shocking to learn that flooding caused a waste water invasion that could transmit discomfort or disease in your home. Our familiarity with appropriate hazardous waste disposal is why SERVPRO’s services are so appreciated and sought after when flood damage occurs. After we collect, contain, and dispose of the noxious fluids, we use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered cleaners and disinfectants to clear the soiling and manage any pathogens. 

Applied Structural Drying 

Once the cleanup of mud and dirty water completed, our technicians ensure the removal of any residual moisture. We measure the levels of adsorbed water in structural components and compared the numbers with sampling from dry spaces in your home. The principles of psychrometry, or the science of drying, learned during IICRC training guide our efforts to place air movers and heaters, forcing moisture out as vapor. Dehumidifiers absorb or condense the airborne vapor, collecting it for disposal as required by local regulation. Then reconstruction and repair ensue. The consistent use of these effective strategies is why SERVPRO can make it “Like it never even happened.” 

Our faithful adherence to practical and efficient restoration practices is why SERVPRO of North Stafford County succeeds in returning the property to owners whole, clean, and dry. Call us at (540) 720-1535 when the waters rise for high-quality results.
