Flash Flooding can Damages San Antonio Homes Every Year, but our SERVPRO Team can Help with a Fast and Reliable Response

Because so many single-family homes in San Antonioare ranch-style properties, the single story of the residence sits on a concrete slab. Without crawlspaces or other preventative measures, unexpected disasters like flash flooding that rushes more than a foot of water at once can find its way through openings in your house's construction and spread over your property.

While you might not be prepared to address flood damage in your San Antonio home, you can count on our SERVPRO team's reliable technicians. We have an extensive inventory of recovery tools that can work to remove standing water quickly, dry out saturated elements, and better protect your belongings. There are ways that you can help before our experienced professionals arrive, however. With efforts like relocating valuable belongings and shutting off utilities when it is safe to do so, you can reduce the severity of losses.

What Can I Expect Professional Restorers to Do with the Flood Damage?
