Timing Is Crucial When Your Charleston Home Suffers Flood Damage
Why Homes With Flood Damage Need Fast Mitigation From SERVPRO In Charleston
Charleston's lower-lying neighborhoods experience sporadic minor flooding throughout the year. During the winter, this can happen because of freezing rains that melt on contact with the ground. Once melted, any water that becomes diverted from drains in the street can end up flowing over yards, streets, and into homes. Yard waste can also clog drains and force water into homes. Many times, the flooding remains low to the ground.
SERVPRO responds quickly to flood damage in Charleston and provides our clients with top-notch service. Damage of any kind eventually worsens, but beginning proper mitigation can minimize overall costs related to the labor, cleaning, and restoration needs of a flooded house.
Having highly effective equipment and tools helps us perform the tasks involved in making minor repairs, cleaning personal belongings, removing damaged structures, and drying the interior becomes more effective when we respond faster. Working as quickly as possible to remove carpeting and saturated drywall sections mean our drying equipment works more efficiently.
We test areas of your home that may hold condensed moisture from evaporated floodwater and ensure that these areas also become dry again. Working quickly means many of these areas never sustain damage from excessive humidity. Other areas that became contaminated but undamaged require cleaning to ensure they do not become breeding grounds for bacteria and other pathogens.
When your home becomes unlivable because of flood damage, finding suitable lodging for your family can place an extreme amount of stress on you. We understand that continuing to live away from home places additional hardship on you and the members of your family. Rapidly finishing the work involved in clearing away the water and debris, cleaning surfaces, and achieving a dry environment means your family can get back to their normal routines and move forward with their lives.
We work as rapidly as possible on homes containing flood damage, regardless of the water level reached during the event. To move your family back home after such a disaster requires substantial teamwork, and SERVPRO of Downtown Charleston trains our employees in the most effective methods. Call us at (843) 577-2470, so we can help you get your family back home and everything back to how it once was, “Like it never even happened.”
