Flood Damage Doesn't Have to Ruin Your Property in Lafayette
Worried About Flood Damage? Help Is on Standby
Heavier than average rainfall can leave our city covered in much water - enough to leave Lafayette homes inundated with flood damage. Quick action can help reduce the severity experienced, just as preparing for flooding with sandbags and moving valuable items from your home.
Our flood damage restoration team lives in Lafayette, so we know how destructive flooding and other disasters can impact our city. We are ready and able to help protect your property from sustaining additional damage by mitigating existing damage. The more rapidly we complete these tasks, the less cost our customers experience.
We at SERVPRO want to assure those with sustained, or possible, flood damage that we are always available to help prevent worsening problems by:
- Removal of floodwater and contaminated debris,
- Cleanup of the residence's interior,
- Drying out of the interior space, and
- Preventative measures that reduce secondary damage.
- Application of antimicrobial agents.
Pumping out water is much better than waiting for floodwaters to recede on their own. It also gives us additional time, a head start, for cleaning and mitigation work. As we do this, we remove any foreign matter – tree branches, garbage, soil, etc.
Rinsing durable surfaces with clean water lowers the amount of filth in your home. Soil, silt, microbes, organic matter, and other contaminants can retain moisture and odor-causing particles.
Using heat and forceful air movers, we work to reverse the moisture level back to normal. Drying the interior out might also include:
- Removing water-retaining carpeting and padding.
- Take floorboards outside to dry.
- Monitoring and relocating drying equipment.
Opening enclosed spaces under cabinets or stairwells can help dry things out faster. Air scrubbers help reduce airborne contaminants, including mold and mildew.
These and other methods help us get things back under control, so your home becomes livable again. SERVPRO of Lafayette wants you to stay safe during any flooding incidents, and for help protecting your home and other property, call us at (765) 420-0077.
