Handling Flood Repairs in Fort Pierce

When rain fills the river basin quickly with too much water, it can cause an overflow. If you do not have a proper slope for water runoff around your Fort Pierce home, flood damage is likely. Contrary to the belief that a house ravaged by floods must be demolished and rebuilt, sometimes, all is required is professional restoration services to save your home.

Flood damage cleanup in Fort Pierce homes can be a lengthy and challenging process if you do not have the skills and the right tools to carry out complete repairs. Equipped with extraction and drying equipment, SERVPRO technicians can get to your home in good time and remove the remaining floodwater off your property preventing further damage to your structure and contents.  

Other Steps That Are Taken to Restore Your Home Fully

  • Assessing the home
  • Removing the damaged materials
  • Decontamination
  • Drying all wet areas

These steps help in different ways towards achieving the desired goals. For example, assessing your home helps reveal structural damage and hazards. Removing damaged materials creates convenience when making replacements and also aids in decontamination.

Identifying Potential Hazards Within a Home After Flood Damage

Floodwaters around your home could still have some force as it recedes. The surge or the excess moisture could weaken the house's structural integrity. For example, when particle board floors are exposed to floodwaters, they may not support the weight of people and machinery. The water also deposits mud and other sediments. The weight of the sediments buildup can pile pressure, adding to the damage. SERVPRO technicians determine potential structural hazards before we proceed with the restoration.
