SERVPRO is Equipped to Restore Your Flood Damaged Kendall Home

Coastal communities always have a mindset of protecting themselves and their neighbors from the threats of natural disasters. The unfortunate side of the mindset is that it often is an overwhelmingly impossible task. With the fast-changing weather systems out from the coast, Kendall homes can go from mild and pleasant weather to raging storms in a short span of time, leaving homeowners with little time to brace themselves for what might occur.

While these raging storms can create all manner of lasting damages to your home, flood damage to your Kendall home might get discussed the least. Often this is considered a cause-and-effect situation following significant structural damage or a weakening of the exterior of your home, which allowed water to pour through unabated during the severe weather event. Flooding in your home is nothing to brush off, as the damage it has already caused only ends up getting worse.

When Storm Damage Passes Through

After gale-force winds and a raging storm that passed through, your entire neighborhood is likely to walk their property and assess the potential damage. After this initial assessment of their home’s condition is when people think about our experienced SERVPRO team. We train in flood damage restoration techniques so that the process completes promptly and professionally.

Since damage to the structure of your home was a likely culprit to the excessive water damage that you experienced, sealing off these holes with tarps and boards can help to limit the further elemental damage. While significant damages to the structural integrity of your home require a residential construction contractor to repair, part of our restoration process involves controlled demolition to prepare your home for its reconstruction needs.

Extraction and drying are processes that are the backbone of flood damage restoration and two steps that have to be done correctly. Failure to remove all the water could allow for mold growth and fungal organisms to sprout up in the affected area. Our SERVPRO professionals utilize thermal technology to ensure that all of the water has been removed and dried successfully.

Severe weather can strike the community without warning. When you find yourself ill-prepared and in need of restoration services from storm and flood damage, trust SERVPRO of Cutler Bay. Our certified restoration specialists are available 24/7 by calling (305) 278-8484.
