How The Experts At SERVPRO Can Restore Your Flood Damaged Home In Columbus
Proper Cleanup Is Necessary When Restoring Flood Damage In Columbus
Once floodwaters recede, it is essential to take steps to restore the property to its preloss state. The right steps can be different things based on the type of flood that affected the property. In most cases of flooding in Columbus, cleanup is the most important thing since floodwaters leave debris and soluble contaminants all over the affected areas. We offer professional restoration services that can save you time and provide satisfactory results.
Among the first steps to take after flood damage in Columbus, is documenting the loss. Since the insurance adjuster might not arrive within the timeframe you would prefer to start the restoration, you can record the loss through photos or videos. Our SERVPRO team can help you collect the necessary evidence by taking the photographic evidence you need for your claim. Since we go through the entire property evaluating salvageable and unsalvageable items, we are better placed to collect the necessary information.
The contaminants in floodwaters cause different problems. One such problem is a bad odor, which can be hard to eliminate unless the right cleaning procedures are applied. With pressure washers, our SERVPRO technicians can remove most of the debris from the affected property. We also use professional cleaning products where necessary. These steps help control any bad odors that might develop after flooding.
When floodwaters affect porous items such as carpets, upholstered furniture or other porous materials such as drywall, it can be a long-term health hazard. Removal of such material is the best guarantee against such hazards. Our SERVPRO technicians have the necessary equipment to handle such removal. We also ensure proper disposal of any materials removed.
The excess moisture left in a building after a case of flooding can cause different issues. For example, no matter how thorough the cleanup is, leaving excess humidity can lead to microbial growth. To ensure we dry your home correctly, our SERVPRO technicians set a drying goal by taking measurements such as temperature, relative humidity and specific humidity in both the affected and unaffected areas. Such information helps us know how much effort is necessary to restore the affected area to its preloss state before microbes have a chance to grow.
