Rely on the Experts for Hurricane Water Damage in Orlando

Hurricane season has Orlando residents on edge, concerns about recovering from the damage a hurricane can always deliver at the back of their minds. Following sensible precautions and making preparations in anticipation of the aggressive assault of winds and rain, tropical depressions, storms, and hurricanes can help ease your mind. Having our team of Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) managers and technicians on speed dial complete your seasonal storm planning.

Speed Counts

The water damage was done when Orlando battles hurricane-force winds begin immediately after rain or overland flooding intrudes. Ripped off roofs or holes in siding allow significant quantities of rain to enter, and flash flooding can put pressure on foundations and fill crawl spaces. The majority of 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.
