Residents in the greater Miami, FL area are no strangers to floods resulting from hurricanes and storms. At ServiceMaster by Enterprise, our flood damage mitigation process counteracts the effects of Mother Nature.
Water Removal After a Flood
The top priority is to remove the water. We’ll admit that step is a no-brainer, but it’s not about merely removing the water. It’s about how quickly and how thoroughly you remove it.
Water damage occurs in a matter of minutes, not hours or days. Even small pools of floodwater left under a stove, inside a cabinet, or behind paneling can damage flooring, walls, and foundations. While using a shop vac to remove the water is better than using a bucket, the professional-grade equipment we use produces the speed and efficiency that is critical to a successful result.
Once we’ve removed the floodwater, the next step is to dry out your home. Again, speed is of the essence. The quicker we get your home dried out, the better the chances of eliminating mold growth.
We use heavy-duty fans, dehumidifiers, heaters, and blowers to dry out your home or business thoroughly. We choose our drying method based on factors such as the materials used for flooring and walls.
Mold Remediation After a Flood
Mold begins to grow within 24 hours. That’s why it’s so critical that we remove the water, search out hidden pockets of moisture, and dry out the structure as fast as possible.
We’ll inspect your walls, flooring, and other property for visible signs of mold and use state-of-the-art technology to detect hidden mold. Depending on our findings, we’ll contain, remove, or eliminate areas of mold growth, including air filtration to remove mold spores from the air.
A flood can be devastating, but you can successfully recover. To learn how we can help, check out the flood damage mitigation services we offer at ServiceMaster by Enterprise or give us a call at (305) 501-4112.
