Largo SERVPRO Techs Eliminate Storm Damage with Flood Restoration
The Before Photo of the affected Largo property shows a home impacted by storms and flooding. SERVPRO professionals removed the carpet and pad, exposing debris and stains on the subfloor in desperate need of water cleanup. SERVPRO can provide this service 24/7 to ensure that pests, waste products, and microbes are removed from affected Largo homes per Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards for the restoration industry. This crew can also perform necessary sanitation and structural repairs after storms and flooding to ensure that homeowners receive thorough water damage remediation.
SERVPRO Storm Water Damage Restoration Includes Thorough Inspection for Largo Properties
The first step that SERVPRO technicians take toward restoring a storm-damaged Largo property in full is inspection with sophisticated tools and technologies. Inspection is performed throughout the water damage restoration process to ensure that surfaces are dried to normal humidity levels.
- Calibrated penetrating and non-penetrating sensors and meters assess moisture levels both inside of materials and on surfaces
- Thermal imaging cameras detect changes in temperature inside or behind structures to determine the extent of potential water damage
- SERVPRO Thermohygrometers detect relative humidity in an affected room compared to other areas of the Largo home
SERVPRO Extraction Tools Accelerate Largo Storm Water Damage Remediation
Once unsalvageable materials and debris are removed from the affected Largo home, such as the carpet of the area shown in the Before Photo, SERVPRO can focus on sanitation and extraction. SERVPRO water damage restoration technicians can utilize submersible sump pumps in areas with standing water more than two inches deep.
Large-scale extraction needs can be addressed with truck-mounted extraction units. At the same time, smaller-scale disasters can be handled with wet-dry vacuums, mops, and back-mounted extractors. Sediments, waste, or microbes encountered during Largo storm and flood restoration are removed with EPA-registered biocide solutions through such means as manual cleaning and pump or trigger spraying.
SERVPRO Structural Drying Prepares Largo Homes for Water Damage Repair
Structural drying for a flooded Largo home is performed with SERVPRO air movers and dehumidifiers. The air movers pull excess moisture off of surfaces. At the same time, the dehumidifiers suck up the moist air, isolate the water for removal, and expel warm, dry air. This process occurs after thorough extraction to accelerate the overall flood restoration process. SERVPRO water damage restoration pros can also potentially salvage flood-damaged subflooring. Should it prove to be unsalvageable after moisture exposure, Largo technicians can also replace it where needed.
SERVPRO Build Back Services and Flood Restoration Revitalize a Largo Home
The After Photo shows that SERVPRO crew members performed flood restoration tasks that returned the Largo home to a pre-disaster condition. Water cleanup technicians implemented new carpet, dried and sanitized the subfloor, and salvaged the baseboards and wall paneling. SERVPRO odor control methods, like ultra-low volume (ULV) fogging, remove malodors from Largo water damage or flood debris at the particle level.
