Our Fast Response Will Save Your Flood Damaged Home In Lafayette
Emergency Response For Flood Damage In Lafayette
Flash flooding can be destructive to your home and property causing both structural damages as well as harming your contents. These natural phenomena can occur due to heavy rainfall, road overflow, back up sewage points or storm. When it happens, it is out of the control of the homeowner so making sure you keep a backup of a professional remediation service is vital to ensure you limit potential, or permanent, losses.
We pride ourselves on our speedy resolutions to homeowners suffering from flood damage in Lafayette. Not only do we operate an emergency response line twenty-four hours a day, but we also have rapid response units with technicians on call for precisely these events. On receiving your notification of loss, we can send a highly trained team immediately.
In flood scenarios, time is a crucial factor. All types of water carry microbes which can migrate throughout your home rapidly. On top of that, any pre-existing damages that may not be a problem can be absorbed transforming clean water into damaging grey or black water. The most effective way to mitigate against this process is by responding quickly and deploying equipment that can remove standing water in the minimum time.
Generally speaking, when water is more than two inches from the floor SERVPRO can use gas-powered pumps. These pumps, which are fully-submersible, can be connected to an open sewer point and are capable of removing limitless amounts of water. In less severe scenarios we can deploy water extraction units which are also practical and kind to structural contents like carpets and fittings.
The removal of excess water inevitably leads to increases in the humidity levels of your property. Most restoration equipment uses hot air or circulation as a catalyst for evaporation. Unfortunately, the evaporated moisture remains in the air which, in a heated home, can create ideal conditions for mold growth.SERVPRO can tackle this issue by creating an open system- exchanging humid indoor air for the drier outdoor air through ventilation. Alternatively, we can deploy dehumidifiers that utilize desiccant chemicals to draw moisture out of the air.
By dealing with both the immediate problems and applying preventative measures against secondary damages our crew can help you get your property back to preloss conditions. Contact SERVPRO of Lafayette at (765) 420-0077 now.
