Storm Damage Our Team Knows How To Help After Heavy Rains Cause Damage To Your Bristol Home If a flood unexpectedly damages your home, never hesitate to get help.

Heavy Rains Can Cause Flood Damage To Your Bristol Home

When your city of residence is situated near both a river and a lake, heavy rainfall can lead to flood damage. As the riverbed swells and the lake floods, the excess water has to go somewhere. Unfortunately for you, as the water rushed through your city, it also rushed into your home.

Dirty and unsanitary water settled in both the entryway and recreational room causing flood damage in a Bristol home. The problem with floodwaters, and what separates flood damage from home-based water damage, is how contaminated the water that enters your home is. As the floodwaters rush through your city, there is no telling what they may pick up and begin to carry with them. It is not uncommon to find contaminants like bacteria, feces, biohazardous materials, and petroleum among the water.

It is essential for this reason not to try and deal with flood damage by yourself. The water could be unsafe for human contact. Getting in touch with a cleanup and restoration company, like SERVPRO, can result in your home getting the professional services that it needs while also keeping you safe from harmful materials.

When our SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians arrive at your home, the first thing we can do is use industry grade wet-dry vacuums to remove the standing floodwater from your recreational room and entryway. Once the water is removed, SERVPRO can focus on removing any debris from your home as well as carpets. Due to the nature of carpets, they cannot be thoroughly cleaned once they have come in contact with black water and must be removed.

After the debris is gone, we can make flood cuts to the walls around your home, to ensure that further problems such as mold damage do not arise. From there, our technicians can set up drying equipment such as dehumidifiers and air movers to restore any damaged furniture to its previous state. After a thorough cleaning of your home to ensure that no bacteria from the floodwater lingers, SERVPRO can return your home to you.

If a flood unexpectedly damages your home, never hesitate to get help. Dial (423) 245-5552 on your phone to speak with SERVPRO of Kingsport / Bristol. We are open 24/7 and available to help you in your time of need.
