Our Professionals Can Save Your Flood Damaged Home In North Durham
SERVPRO is Here to Help During Your Flood Damage Emergency In North Durham
Heavy storms, hurricanes, or harsh winds can all cause flood damage to your North Durham home. It is essential to keep weather advisories in mind and be prepared for an emergency when it happens. In an area where heavy rains are known to cause flooding, it is wise to keep an emergency situation and supply kit. Additionally, the kit should include a home evacuation plan.
However, what if a storm causes minor flood damage to your North Durham home? Let's say that a fallen tree breaks a window off the side of your home and allows rainwater into your home during a storm. Let's say that the tree didn't damage the structure of your home outside of the window, and the water only entered from that one spot. The best thing you could do for your home in this situation is to call for help.
Here at SERVPRO, we're dedicated to helping people during their flood damage emergencies. Our motto is that We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster, and we always try to stick to it. During a storm, weather conditions may slow our arrival. We may need to clear fallen trees, avoid flooded roadways, or get stuck in traffic, but we can press on until we get to your home.
In this scenario, when our technicians arrived at your home, we would first tackle the tree in your window. We could use a chainsaw to break it up and make sure that removing the tree doesn't cause more damage than it did when it fell. Once the tree has been removed, we could cover your window to limit exposure to the storm and keep water out of your home.
Once inside, our SERVPRO technicians could begin to use extractors in your living room to remove standing water. Extractors are particularly useful on carpets, upholstery, and drapes because they are capable of simultaneously drying the fabric as well as removing water. After cleaning up the debris, and removing the water, SERVPRO can put you in contact with a contractor who can install a new window for you.
If an intense storm creates damages in your home, never wait. Dial (919) 467-0880 to get in touch with SERVPRO of North Durham. Whenever you need us, night or day, we're ready to help.
