Who can guard my property after evacuating during a storm?
Temporary evacuation during a storm can be vital; however, you may have difficulty keeping your home secure and limiting flood damage in your Cutler Bay residence. SERVPRO restorers work between first responders and general contractors. Our goal is to secure your property from unlawful intrusion and prepare the site for further remodeling. We can install temporary boards to prevent trespass in your home. Our technicians can also pump water out of the property while establishing an appropriate drying protocol to limit damage to both your structure and contents.
How long will it take to restore a flooded property?
An industry-standard time to mitigate emergency damage is two to five days. That gives our technicians enough time to remove water, clean, and dry the property. In many situations, you can return home after five days. However, properties with features like wood flooring may have to wait longer for their home to return to preloss condition. Wood absorbs moisture and becomes warped. Wooden floors can sometimes take months to restore, but in most cases, you can continue to use the property during the final steps of restoration.
Securing your home against looters and water damage is possible using a professional restorer. Contact SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484.
