Storm Damage Is Professional Flood Damage Remediation Necessary in San Antonio? DIY efforts often come up short and can cause secondary damage.

Why Professional Flood Damage Remediation is Crucial in San Antonio

Flooding in the San Antonio area has been frequent in the past. Climate change might make the problem more prevalent and intense in the future. Because we anticipate severe flooding does not mean recovery is straightforward or a do-it-yourself proposition. If your home is in the path of flash flooding, be sure you seek the assessment of the scenario by our dependable remediation team. Managing the cleanup on your own can worsen the outcome.

When your home suffers from flood damage in San Antonio, it is highly likely that the water and debris that intrudes into your home are contaminated. Chemicals, road waste, insects, dead animals, sewage, and more can be in the mix. Quantities of silt and mud make it complicated. Removing the debris and sludge along with the water needs careful handling and often containment of the fluid for appropriate hazardous waste disposal. Our trained and well-equipped crews prepare for these challenges.

Speed is essential when cleaning up flood damage, an overwhelming proposition when you are trying to deal with it on your own. SERVPRO crews arrive with a seasoned manager to assess and devise an agenda to mitigate the situation and the workers to carry out the plan designed. Each signature green truck carrying our team to your address has pumps and extractors to remove the water, as well as tools to remove mud and silt.

Our crews take care to avoid exposing your lower levels to collapse when we extract the water. IICRC training and job experience guide us if many feet of water invade your home. We extract the water in a controlled manner to prevent the pressure from the saturated ground outside your home from damaging the foundation. SERVPRO scans for hidden water and measures moisture levels in structural components to ensure that we remove all flooding.

Once the standing water evacuates, we reach for the drying equipment also in our service trucks. A balance of air temperature and movement accelerates evaporation of water absorbed into building materials. Once vaporized our desiccant and evaporative dehumidifiers collect and contain the water for disposal away from your home. To ensure drying is effective behind walls or other barriers we frequently make flood cuts.

SERVPRO of Braun Station exists to help the communities we manage catastrophes like flood damage. Make a call to (210) 267-2159 to schedule an evaluation as soon as the water rises inside your home.
