flooding in home Never let bad weather catch you by surprise.

Flooding in Naples is a Common Occurrence and Can Cause Various Problems like Structural Damage, a Proliferation of Harmful Microbial Growths, and the Destruction of Household Contents.

As you probably already know, Naples experiences its rainy season between mid-May and the end of October.  During this time, the area routinely has daily thunderstorms from around noon until about sunset.  However, torrential rains can sometimes fall continuously for several days in a row, overpowering local drainage networks and flooding nearby homes.  When this happens, your residence could suffer extensive immediate damage and be at risk of further issues in the future.  Worse still is that some of these flood-borne problems could go unnoticed even after remediation work is completed.  This is why you must hire the right flood damage cleanup and restoration company to resolve your flood-related situation.

What Kind of Damage is a Flood Capable of Doing?
As your local Naples flood damage remediators at SERVPRO know, floods can cause an amazing amount of damage.  These property injuries can be both immediate and long-term, as well as visible and hidden.  Some of the many flood-borne issues our skilled technicians have successfully handled in the past are:

    •    Feet of standing water in even the most difficult-to-access areas
    •    Hazardous waste deposits
    •    Moisture-saturated home interiors
    •    Harmful microbial growths that cause mold and mildew stains, dry rot, and health effects
    •    Persistent, difficult-to-eliminate odors
    •    Destroyed structural elements and rooms

After regularly resolving these particular situations, we have earned a reputation as one of the area’s most skilled storm damage remediation services.  This favorable public image has only been enhanced when people learn about the extensive training our technicians receive in all aspects of the cleanup and restoration process.

What Type of Residences Has SERVPRO Successfully Remediated?
SERVPRO has dealt with the effects of flooding in all types of residences.  Our experts have completed work on everything from country estates to city condos.  The following is a brief list of the various kinds of residential structures we have saved over the past eighteen or so years:

    •    Large country estates
    •    Small and large single-family houses
    •    Divided and multi-family structures
    •    Beachfront and downtown condos
    •    Mixed-use properties of various sizes

Residences are constructed differently from one another, and they often exist in dissimilar environments.  So, effectively cleaning up flood damage generally involves knowing exactly what tools and services might be necessary for every circumstance.  As a firm with extensive experience cleaning up and restoring all the various home types, SERVPRO has become one of the leading flood damage remediators in this region.

Where Does SERVPRO Operate?
Wherever you are in the Greater Naples area, SERVPRO likely services your community.  We are available to help you in most parts of Collier County, from the oceanfront to its swampy eastern end.  Some of the various communities we have helped include:

    •    Naples
    •    Naples Manor
    •    Old Marco Junction
    •    Marco Island
    •    Miles City
    •    Monroe Station
    •    Paolita Station

Our large zone of coverage forces us to deal with a wide range of environments, each requiring the use of different methods and tools.  As a result, our technicians have become experts in remediating residential flooding in both remote swampy grasslands and densely populated coastal communities.

As a homeowner in Southwest Florida, you should always remain mindful of the ever-present threat of flooding.  Although our towns rarely suffer direct hits from hurricanes, they still experience much of the region’s tropical weather.  Heavy rains that continue unabated for several days are a common occurrence here.  These intensely rainy periods rather quickly inundate our low-lying region and bring destruction to local residents.  It is for this reason you should be well-prepared for flooding before the rainy season comes.  Know whom to call in the case of a flood emergency and take all the other necessary precautions to safeguard your property.

With all that said, never let bad weather catch you by surprise.  If it ever does and you require assistance overcoming the devastation of a flood, call your helpful neighbors at SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island anytime at (239) 302-5700.
