Flood Damage In Your Palos Heights Home
Heavy Rainfall And Flood Damage
Spring has sprung! With spring comes day after day of rain in the Chicago land area. Just minutes after a heavy rainfall, flash floods can come rushing through your neighborhood and into your home. These kinds of floods can be very dangerous, not just because of the volume and speed of the water, but due to the fact that the water may contain sewage and other debris. These floods can be fast rising and invade your home quickly.
Flood damage in your Palos Heights home can be overwhelming and devastating. SERVPRO is standing by to help you with the professional training and equipment that is needed to do the job right.
In a flood situation, we are not finished once the water is out and your home is dry again, the structure must also be cleaned. Things like the sub flooring and walls could also need cleaning. We clean any materials which are restorable with the appropriate methods.
For carpeting, SERVPRO staff clean and deodorize these areas. We choose a cleaning method that is right for the level of soiling. Six different carpet cleaning methods are utilized depending on the condition of the carpet.
Most of the time, we have a list of items which need to be cleaned. All contents exposed to water or high humidity have to be evaluated for cleaning needs. Some wood furniture might need cleaning and polishing from exposure to high humidity. We check all clothing, closets, and storage areas for contents needing cleaning and deodorizing. We also look for damage from high humidity and condensation on photographs and wall hangings. Your electronics may need special drying and cleaning services to restore them. Pool tables, pianos, clocks, and other items which are sensitive could also require specialized attention.
After restoration is complete, we finalize the job by ensuring you are satisfied. We check moisture levels one last time to ensure everything is dry and complete a walk-through with you. If there are any problems, we fix them and then remove all our equipment and supplies. Maintain relationships and communicating throughout the entire process is a huge factor in how smoothly the job is completed and how happy you are.
