Falmouth Property Owners Know that Flood Damage Happens Without Warning – Look to SERVPRO for Skilled Restoration

Once flooding occurs inside your Falmouth home, multiple layers of damage can arise. You could have issues with flooring, carpets, walls, and even your home’s structural elements. It is also common to have some electrical issues after a flood, which is why the safest bet is calling in trained water restoration technicians (WRT).

Where Do I Start?
Right after the storm, you need the right team to handle flood damage in Falmouth, including emergency water extraction. SERVPRO begins with assessing your property to determine which equipment is best so that cleanup and drying may begin. The home repairs that your home might require could be extensive, but we have contractors that can handle controlled demolition and finish off your interior back to preloss condition.

What About Mold?
Any floodwater left standing for too long creates the ultimate atmosphere for mold growth. Our crew understands best practices to search for hidden moisture pockets. We also work to treat surfaces throughout your home to facilitate mold remediation.

Why Should I Call Skilled Restoration Technicians?
When you enlist our help at SERVPRO, we provide:
    •    Years of experience in the restoration industry
    •    Education and training via the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)
    •    Industrial-grade equipment such as extraction tools, air movers, dehumidifiers, and more
    •    EPA-registered cleaning agents with anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties

Because floodwater often contains contaminants, our crew is careful to test the water and treat surfaces throughout the restoration process. Exposure to the microbes found in floodwater, also known as black water, can lead to health effects if not handled carefully. All of our restoration technicians wear personal protective equipment to ensure safety throughout the project. We also wear foot coverings and block off zones to keep contamination from getting tracked to unaffected areas of your home.
