Living Alongside the Scioto River Can Cause the Basement in Your Columbus Home to Flood
Protect Your Columbus Property and Hobby Materials with a Call to SERVPRO after a Flooding Event
Severe storms can be the cause of a lot of bad things, but one of the worst is flood damage. When a significant amount of rain hits a river, there is always the possibility of a flood occurring. When your home is adjacent to the river, it is entirely possible that the waters can come creeping into your living space. Everything that is on the lower level of your home may be at risk, especially the basement, your art supplies storage and hobby area.
For the benefit of your paints, canvases, paintings, and your house, it is best that you to call for professional flood damage remediation services for your Columbus home as soon as possible. The faster that experts can get to the scene of the flood damage, the less likely it is that further damage can occur. Additionally, it is more likely that successful remediation can take place with a quicker arrival.
As we get to your home, our SERVPRO techs can begin to prepare to remove the flooded water swiftly. We can use trade tools such as wet/dry vacuums, portable submersible pumps, and extractors to remove the standing water in your basement art room. Once we get the water out of your home, we can focus on cleaning up any paint supplies and other items that may have been disturbed during the flooding.
Because of the nature of the flood, it is entirely possible that you might have lost some supplies. SERVPRO can help you create an inventory of the things that were ruined, such as spare canvas and paints. Once the list is completed, it can be filed with a claim to your insurance company.
SERVPRO can use tools such as moisture meters to detect if your home needs further drying. In the case of excess moisture, we can continue to place more devices, such as air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers, to dry out the structure of your art room, as well as any furniture that might have absorbed the water.
Finally, the last thing we can do for you is to clean up the space. SERVPRO can remove any dirt and grime the flood may have brought along with it.
