Why You Need SERVPRO For Flood Damage Restoration In Rocky Hill

Rocky Hill and other Tennessee towns are already dealing with Autumn storms. Usually, the results are a soggy yard, and maybe a tree limb or two knocked down by the wind. Even when flooding happens, it often recedes quickly.

So why SERVPRO for flood damage in Rocky Hill? Unlike water from a faulty dishwasher, flood water contains soil and other contaminants, so only pumping out the water and setting up a few fans to dry the inside is not enough. Cleaning up after a flood requires a professional restoration service, with the equipment and experience in returning area homes to their original, pre-flood condition.

Before it is safe to begin cleaning operations, our technicians deal with the immediate contamination threat. They spray the surface of any standing water and items that came into contact with the flood water with an anti-bacterial chemical. The cleaning agent quickly reduces the health threat to anyone who enters the home.

SERVPRO technicians then use pumps and extraction wands to draw the flood water out of the home. Since it is contaminated, our crews send the water directly into the nearest sewer access. If the system is still overwhelmed by the flood, technicians pump it into a tank truck and send it to a water treatment once they finish.

Since there is no way to guarantee that a carpet covered by a flood is safe to use again, we do not waste resources attempting to restore it. After removing the water, technicians pull up and dispose of all carpets and carpet pads exposed to the flood water. They then spray the exposed floor with a cleaner and use fans and air movers to dry the surface.

If our experts can remove the water quickly enough, cleaning exposed furniture is a much simpler task. If the water did not cause the finish to degrade or the wood to split or crack, our crews could use a cleaner with an anti-bacterial agent added to remove soil and other contaminants.

Quick removal is key to restoring homes after a flood. At SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville, we know that even a small amount of flood water can cause hundreds or even thousands of dollars in damage. If you have or had water in your home recently, call us today at (865) 862-8907 for an inspection. We are here for you.
