What Additional Damage Types Does SERVPRO Handle with Flood Damage in Dayton?
Certified SERVPRO Technicians Tackle Drying Out Your Property to Help Prevent Any Secondary Damages From Forming, Let us Explain More.
Some of the most expensive consequences of flood damage in Dayton may not even be from the flood itself. Many floods and storms create secondary problems and types of damage that can cause damage that is as bad or worse than anything caused by the dirty, tumultuous waters. SERVPRO exercises flexible and adaptable mitigation and restoration strategies to better handle unexpected developments and unpredictable situations in the aftermath of a flood and can help to counter any of these types of damage on top of our usual water removal and restoration procedures.
Floods and Fires
In some cases, the worst flood damage to a Dayton home may come not from the water, but from a fire. Floods can start fires in many different ways, and often, rainfall and humidity fail to put out the flames before they engulf a home. Lightning can strike the home, electronics can short circuit and cause electrical fires, and any blazes on nearby properties or tree lines may carry over onto your property. SERVPRO is fully certified to handle fire damage of any severity alongside other restorative processes.
Some floods can cause significant physical damage to a home by crashing objects into one another. Heavy objects can be picked up inside the home or brought in from the outside to wreak havoc, and trees and light posts can sometimes crash down from above and tear holes in your home's exterior. We provide tarping services to handle many of these situations and can develop solid plans to repair any additional issues we encounter.
Mold thrives after an area floods, as it can find ample supplies of water and nutrients to start new colonies and begin to grow under ideal circumstances. Stopping mold can be a challenge, requiring careful attention, rigorous sanitization, and targeted mitigation practices to achieve success. We act fast to dry your home and eliminate the threat of mold if possible and take care of its effects if not.
