We Deliver Fast Flood Damage Recovery In Bourne
Why SERVPRO’s Experience with Storm Surge Delivers Fast Flood Damage Recovery in Bourne
Extreme weather patterns are a reality year-round for residents of Bourne, and when high winds and heavy precipitation are augmented with storm surge flooding, the results can be devastating. Not only do you contend with the harm water can do, but the contaminants in overland flooding and saltwater also create complications only professionals deal with effectively. Urgent problems like these are why we pledge availability year-round, 24 hours a day.
Hazards Presented by Contaminated Water
Storm activity affects both municipal and individual drainage systems, causing substantial flood damage in seaside Bourne. The waters collecting in your lower levels can contain a broad range of mud, sand, chemicals, industrial waste, and sewage. Human and animal waste can be present. Health hazards can include viruses, bacteria, and molds. Our crews have the capability of gathering, collecting, containing, and disposing of contaminated water following local regulations, why we can take that worry off your shoulders.
Increased Risk of Damage with Saltwater
Saltwater mixes into overland flooding, adding debris from the ocean as well as salt. When seawater is present in a flooding scenario, more caution than usual must be taken as the compound creates the free movement of ions, permitting easier conduction of electricity, increasing the risk of shock. Salt also damages and removes the lignin, the “glue” that holds plant cells together. Wooden framing and other cellulose-based building materials weaken as the lignin disappears, feathery bits of the destroyed compound coating wooden surfaces exposed to saltwater.
Freshwater Flushing Familiarity Why SERVPRO Fits Your Remediation Plan
When saltwater is a part of the flooding fluids, rinsing with fresh water is crucial to avoid delignification, hard to manage without professional help. Our crews have experience with the process, why SERVPRO offers you skills missing from a do-it-yourself effort.
Disinfection Followed by Structural Drying
Research-tested products are in our repertoire, why SERVPRO responds appropriately to the contamination issues. We employ EPA-registered antimicrobials after the fluids exit via pumps and extractors. We then turn to air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to evaporate and then capture water in vapor form, reducing the moisture content of structural components.
Confidence and skill in managing the specialized needs of saltwater infused flooding are why SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands is at the top of the list when selecting a disaster recovery partner. Call us at (508) 888-5985 to engage our services when the waters rise.
