3 Steps You Can Expect During Professional Storm Cleanup

When storms ravage your Oviedo, FL home, beginning the cleanup process can be challenging. There is much to be done, from removing flood waters to retrieving wet items to the tear out of damaged drywall. Calling in a professional storm cleanup and restoration company can help you take the first steps toward recovery, and knowing what to expect when storm technicians arrive may make you feel more confident about the cleanup efforts.

1. Water Removal

One of the first steps storm cleanup techs might take is to inspect water levels inside your house. Flood waters that result from storms are usually considered black water, as runoff may include liquids from overflowing sewers. The techs will probably use large pumps, hoses and safety suits to remove and dispose of the water; little else can be done until it is drained.

2. Damage Inspection

Once storm waters are removed, your cleanup professionals might inspect affected rooms for water damage, and tear out contaminated carpeting and drywall. They can also advise you about which wet items might be salvageable and how to treat them until they can be cleaned. Techs may also use industrial fans to dry rooms and lower the humidity, which may impede mold growth.

3. Room Restoration

A few final steps storm restoration experts may take is to replace or restore drywall, perform mold remediation and deodorize affected rooms to ensure no musty smells are left behind. They may also advise you about which of your home’s systems might need repairs, such as plumbing or electrical units. You might want to ask them about what kind of services they offer for document or furniture damage so you can have these items restored quickly.

Professional cleanup and restorations services may include a tear out along with water removal if storm and flood waters invade your Oviedo, FL home. Understanding this can help give you peace of mind about the outcome. Visit http://www.SERVPROoviedowinterspringseast.com for more information on storm damage.
