Storm Flood Damage Must Get Addressed Safely in Malden
SERVPRO’s Disaster Response Team Helps Malden Residents with Flood Damage
During a significant storm front that brings wind and heavy rain, your Malden property could be susceptible to flooding. This contaminated floodwater coming into your home calls for safe removal that DIY methods alone cannot achieve. SERVPRO offers a rapid response to water damage and flooding from storm events, ensuring you have a team at-the-ready. Emergency response 24/7 with skilled water restoration technicians is the best way to return your home to pre-flood condition.
What makes storm flood damage in Malden unique compared to interior water damage? Outside floodwater infiltrating your building can bring many contaminants, including bacteria, chemicals, silt, and debris. SERVPRO works to assess the flooded portion of your home with precision to identify and eliminate all safety hazards. This includes putting containment measures and signage in place, followed by the entire crew wearing personal protective equipment (PPE).
Measures we take with flooding events:
- We carry specialized disinfectants to spray on any affected areas where floodwater touches.
- Standing silt, debris, and water get removed with truck-mounted extractors. In some situations, we may utilize shovels and rakes to get up the bulk of the contaminated matter.
- Our team goes through your interior to identify what contents can go through the decontamination, cleaning, and restoration phases. Restoration generally depends on the porosity of each item, as porous items cannot be safely disinfected and require disposal.
What About Damaged Building Materials and Structural Elements
Any structural components touched but not damaged by contaminated water can go through the pressure washing process. We also clean surfaces using powerful disinfectants. However, any materials deemed unsalvageable will get replaced during the controlled demolition/reconstruction phase. All of this work gets carried out by trusted local contractors that we partner with if needed.
