SERVPRO techs know that the damage you can see in your Naples home may not be all there is to address

When intense storms come through in Naples, they can leave behind different kinds of problems to clean up. In many cases, it is an excellent decision to bring in professional help because consumer-grade shop vacs and fans standardly used in homes do not possess the power to dry a structure and contents as rapidly as needed to avoid problems such as spreading water damage from wicking into sheetrock or under the flooring. Additionally, temporary repairs may be required, such as tarping over a roof to halt any further rain from entering.

What Structural Hazards May Happen After Flood Damage?

When SERVPRO techs handle the cleanup of flood damage in Naples homes, the techs perform a double-layered scoping of the property that includes locating the migration paths of the water within the structure and identify any hazards that are present such as:
    •    Wet, sagging ceilings with the potential to collapse  
    •    Electrical shock hazards from outlets coming into contact with floodwater
    •    Slip and fall dangers are present anywhere slick flooring or a saturated subfloor is wet  
    •    Contaminated water can post a significant threat to come into contact with

What Does Safe Cleanup of Storm Damage Entail?

The technicians wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and ensure that structural hazards within the property get removed through the use of their controlled demolition actions. This action performs the dual purpose of not only eliminating dangerous situations but also opens up ceilings and walls for better airflow during the drying phase of the mitigation.

Because the restoration services can take time to extract the water and dry the structure, keeping out unauthorized individuals is necessary. SERVPRO technicians can board up windows, doors and put up yellow security tape to set clear boundaries around the job site.

The cleanup of flood damage needs to begin immediately, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 for fast, professional service for any size water problem in your home.
