The water damage occurred when Orlando battles hurricane-force winds begin immediately after rain or overland flooding intrudes. Ripped roofs off or holes in the side panels allow significant quantities of rain to enter. Flash flooding can put pressure on foundations and fill crawl spaces. Building materials such as drywall, laminates, hardwoods, insulation, pressed and plywood, and framing absorbs the water quickly, restorable only if rapid water removal and structural drying occur. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster. Our crews are alert and ready to mobilize when we know our community is in the path of potentially catastrophic weather.
Contamination of Hurricane Flood Water Poses a Challenge
Increasing the severity of hurricane-related water damage is the broad range of substances and items that the flooding carries into your home. Dirt, mud, dead animals and vegetation, landscaping and roadway chemicals, and sewage sweep into residences, mixed into the torrential rains. Safely removing this Category 3 water requires the knowledge and experience of SERVPRO's certified Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT). We assess and categorize the water, plan for and implement containment and extraction, and dispose of the collected water following local hazardous waste regulations.
Controlled Demolition Avoids Secondary Damage
It might seem counterintuitive that tearing out sections of building materials limits permanent damage. SERVPRO frequently uses strategies like flood cuts and drainage holes to gain access to trapped floodwaters. It is crucial to release contaminated water from behind walls and above ceilings to eliminate pathogens that can endanger occupants' health. The window to inhibit mold growth in damp areas is only 24 to 48 hours. Opening up building cavities enhances the efficiency of drying equipment and techniques.
