Reacting Quickly When Your Miami Home Faces Flooding
SERVPRO Moves Fast After You Call Us for Storm Damage Cleanup and Restoration
As most Miami homeowners know, the weather is anything but predictable and accommodating all throughout the year. With certain severe weather systems always threatening to hit the coastline, the area is nearly in an ever-present risk of situations like flooding and flash flooding. Fortunately, many of the homes here have gotten constructed to reduce the damage that these disasters can cause by working to prevent the water from getting inside your house. The trouble with this is that you might not realize that these lines of defense have degraded or failed until the damage has already happened.
When it comes to discovering flood damages in your Miami residence, your fast reaction time can save you much trouble in the long run. Instead of working to try and remove these damages and present water on your own, you should be reaching out to the professionals at SERVPRO. Our rapid response team can arrive quickly and get to work on both removing the water pouring into your house and preserving the contents of your home that could be at risk for irreparable damages.
When our team arrives at your home, one of the first priorities we have is to quell the source of the water flow to keep the situation from getting any worse. Often something as simple as applying some hydraulic cement to compromised blockwork can reduce (or even remove) the threat of more water damage from steady flow.
In many cases where flooding occurs in areas where drywall has gotten installed, flood cuts are necessary. This process involves removing several inches of the bottom of the drywall up to several feet where it has gotten too damaged to save, but it also provides benefits to the restoration process as well. With these portions removed, our SERVPRO professionals can gain access to wall cavities to ensure that the area is sufficiently dry before we deem the job complete.
While this is just a small look at restoration work in light of a flood in your home, it can help to show you the level of dedication you can expect from the specialists here at SERVPRO of Cutler Bay. Give us a call 24/7 at (305) 278-8484.
