Storm Damage What You Can Do When a Storm Floods Your Rocky Hill Property If a tree falls on your home during a storm, gallons of water can be let in leaving you in need of water removal and flood damage restoration.

SERVPRO is Here to Help Restore Your Home after Flood Damage

Unfortunately, when a severe storm rolls into town, it is possible that it can bring flood damage with it. Storms can bring aggressive winds and intense rain with them. In fact, it is not uncommon for high-speed winds to knock over weaker trees. The young tree in your front yard can easily smash a window if it is uprooted and thrown against your home. That broken window can allow gallons of water into your home while the storm happens. When these kinds of situations occur, it is comforting to know there is professional help close to your home.

A storm can leave several inches of damaging flood waters in your Rocky Hill home. Water removal of this degree is not a job that any ordinary homeowner should have to tackle alone. Storms can easily carry dangerous toxins in their waters by tearing up sewage pipes and chemical containers. When storms bring black water with them, the cleanup process should be left to professionals as it is unsafe.

Our skilled technicians can arrive at your home as quickly as possible to begin the process. Our IICRC certified technicians uses advanced equipment to remove the flooded water, including extractors and pumps. We strive to get the water out of your home as quickly as possible, and these tools allow us to do just that.

After SERVPRO removes the water, we can clean up any debris the storm brought inside. It is not uncommon for twigs, rocks, broken glass, and garden decorations to get inside of your home. If black water has soaked through your carpets, we carry tools with us that can allow us to remove it quickly as it is unsafe to keep in your house even when cleaned.

SERVPRO can then use tools like ventilation box fans, air movers, and refrigerant dehumidifiers to dry out the structure of your home. Making sure everything is thoroughly dry helps prevent mold.

If your home becomes flooded after a storm, do not hesitate. Call SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville at (865) 862-8907. Day or night, we can send our technicians to your home.
