Let SERVPRO help limit the losses in your home after a flood damage.

Large residences can suffer without explanation from flooding situations. As weather alerts reach their peak, this period of winter poses a threat of flash flooding. Flash floods can travel up to nine feet per second, picking up gravel, rocks and mud. The sheer force of rushing water can break through windows and doors, quickly flooding lower levels of homes leaving homeowners powerless. You may not be able to stop floodwaters, but you can limit the losses caused by them by bringing in professionals.

Emergency services for flood damage are available the Washington and Bath areas all year round. The emergency aspect of water restoration depends on removing water quickly so as to mitigate losses. The role of a restorer does not stop at removing standing water. Wet property is just as likely to suffer damages as flooded properties. SERVPRO’s qualified technicians ensure the drying procedure is as effective at mitigating losses as the removal procedure is at stopping immediate concerns.

When floors are wet, it raises the humidity levels as the moisture evaporates. As water evaporates, it can create a boundary layer of air that inhibits further evaporation. To combat this, SERVPRO of Bath technicians use air movers to keep air circulating and replace humid boundary layers with dryer sheets. This plays a significant role in the length of time it takes to restore your property to preloss condition.

SERVPRO technicians may use as many as twenty air-movers to promote constant airflow. Air movers use centrifugal motion to move large volumes of air and use a daisy chain fitting to ensure multiple units can be set up in a room with just one power cord. This type of placement of air movers ensures that it’s possible to circulate air from one or two open points of outdoor air. If security is a concern, air movers are positioned in a closed-circuit system which uses dehumidifiers to provide dry air.

Drying flooded property can reduce claims and secondary losses. Contact SERVPRO of Bath if you’ve suffered flood damage today.
