SERVPRO can Work to Mitigate Flooding and Damages with Swift Action in Fort Pierce North Residences

Crawlspaces can be a challenging area of your home to reach and recover after natural flooding concerns. Many of the houses in the area not constructed on concrete slabs feature this accessible area for a hub of utilities. When flooding occurs, immediate action is required to avoid damage to the main structure.

How Can Standing Water Get Removed? 

The accessibility of standing water after flood damage to Fort Pierce North homes is one of the main obstacles for responding technicians. Confined space and tighter areas require a combination of multiple extractors in our fleet and inventory, including:

  • Truck extractors
  • Wet vacuums
  • High-pressure pumps
  • Trash pumps

Is Encapsulation Worth the Money? 

One of the most valuable considerations for homeowners after flooding in a crawlspace is possible encapsulation. With a general contractor license, we can furnish permanent solutions to prevent further water penetration into this crawl space beneath the property and redirecting water that otherwise would have damaged the structure. If flooding is a persistent concern for your home, this can save money against much more significant structural damage and mold growth concerns later. 

With how destructive flooding can be, many have trusted the fast response of our SERVPRO of Fort Pierce NE team to help. We are available 24/7 at (772) 362-7060.
