Storm Damage How Flash Floods Impact Your Rocky Hill Home Flash floods can happen anytime, anywhere. Call SERVPRO when a storm causes water damage to your home.

Picking up the Pieces after Flood Damage in Rocky Hills

Flash Flooding can occur with very little to no prior warning and cause untold damage. As little as two feet of rushing water can overturn an SUV, so it is vital you attend to your safety as a priority. Avoiding flood water is equally important to prevent illness. Many floods carry with them animal carcasses, herbicides, pesticides, and other potentially harmful pathogens. In the case of road overflows, raw sewage can also be present. In the US alone, floods have cost billions of dollars in restoration to commercial properties and private residences.

We have visited hundreds of homes suffering from flood damage in Rocky Hill. Our experience has taught us to listen to the concerns of our residents and keep them informed every step of the way. We have also learned how to answer big questions like how to restore electricity to your property, where to send severely damaged contents and whether or not relocation is necessary while work is ongoing.

SERVPRO is a licensed restoration service that uses IICRC certified technicians. We can perform emergency boards up to your property to seal it from further water damages as well as inspect the property for potential hazards like loose electrical equipment. Usually, in these types of services, the standing water level is above two inches high. To tackle high levels like this, you need to use submersible gas pumps that help to whisk excess water into open sewer points.

As well as access to gas-powered pumps, SERVPRO can use truck-mounted water extractors. Each unit is capable of removing hundreds of gallons of water without needing to be emptied first. By using a heating element in combination with industrial vacuum power, these units dry the affected area during water removal. With large amounts of water removed we can move in portable extractors to help dry carpets or fabrics in the affected area.

As we stated earlier, flood water can often become contaminated with waste substances. SERVPRO can not only clean your home but also deploy industrial foggers to deodorize it. Equipment like this uses desiccant chemicals to help neutralize odor particles and make the damage "Like it never even happened."

Restoration after widespread damages can be stressful, contact SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville (865) 862-8907 for assistance.
