We Have The Effective Removal Strategies In Falmouth After A Flood
Storm Debris Cleanup and Water Removal in Falmouth Homes
After a flood, your Falmouth home might not even look the same as it used to. Invading water can bring untold debris and threats into the property, and these are conditions that you must recognize. It is crucial that if you are one of the first people to re-enter your home after a flood that you do so cautiously. You are looking for several potential hazards, including shock threats, structural weaknesses, holes, and dangerous debris like broken glass or contaminants.
Post-storm debris cleanup is regularly the first step in the restoration of flood damage to Falmouth homes. Our SERVPRO professionals can also utilize this time when we first begin working on your property to remove standing water to better protect your house from requiring more elaborate controlled demolition. In certain situations, our technicians must shovel out sediment, mud, and other solids deposited on the floors of the affected areas of your house. Dry and wet vacuuming can also help to remove smaller bits of debris that are not as easily removed with shoveling and sweeping.
In many situations, we cannot begin full debris removal and cleaning of the affected areas because our SERVPRO technicians must first contend with standing water. Flood damage scenarios can allow for several feet of standing water in the most directly damaged areas of the house. Because the presence of solids is expected in this water, we can utilize stronger options with larger intake hoses like our gas-powered trash pumps.
Once we have dropped the water level to no more than two inches, devices like our wet vacuums can become useful both for the present debris and for removing the remaining surface water.
Flooding can become a devastating situation for many homeowners, and this can begin with the widespread threats that can enter the property with debris and contaminants. Our SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands team have effective removal strategies and disinfection techniques that can manage these situations and make flood losses “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (508) 888-5985.
