Knoxville Storms and Flooding? SERVPRO Can Help!!
Flood Damage Restoration for Your Knoxville Home
Trees can add a natural landscape and beauty to your Knoxville home. However, during a storm, one of your beautiful trees may become a significant threat to your home and your family. If the tree falls on your home during a severe storm, it can create flooding inside your home.
When this happens, ensure everyone gets out of the home as soon as you can for safety reasons. Once the storm subsides, you need flood damage restoration services for your Knoxville residence. SERVPRO is always ready for you, and we have the tools and experience needed to get your home back in order as soon as possible.
When the rainwaters have accumulated to a few inches or more, SERVPRO technicians can make use of our robust, truck-mounted pumps to remove as much water as possible in a quick manner. Once this is done, if there is carpeting in the affected area, we use moisture sensors to find how much moisture is in the padding and carpet. The sensor is equipped with sharp probes which penetrate down under the padding to see if the water migrated to the subfloor underneath. Typically, these floor coverings must be discarded, but circumstances are first evaluated in the chance of salvaging them.
Thermal imaging cameras are used to inspect and monitor the moisture in any building materials, while centrifugal air movers and dehumidifiers are used to finish the drying process of the structure and the air. We move quickly, but thoroughly to avoid any additional damage to your home, such as mold growth.
Trees are shallow rooted, and when it rains heavily in urban areas, it can cause trouble for the trees and the people who live near them. It is difficult, however, to give specific answers as to why trees topple in heavy rainfall. Usually, it is a combination of factors which makes the trees susceptible to blowing down and causing you a terrible day. While on the scene, we attempt to cover any breaches in the structure to mitigate the water damage from rains.
SERVPRO of Rocky Hill/Sequoyah Hills/South Knoxville is here to come to your rescue should a tree cause a flood of rain to enter your home in Bearden, Fort Sanders, or Rocky Hill. As soon as you are safely out and the storm subsides, give us a call at (865) 862-8907 so we can help you right away.
