Overcoming Threatening Flood Damage to Bellevue Homes
The Focuses of Flood Damage Cleanup
Flooding is a fast-paced threat to your home. As leading restoration professionals, we have specific mitigation and recovery objectives that must begin as soon as possible to limit out-of-pocket expenses. Emergency services can include:
- Containing the impact
- Repairing structural concerns
- Protecting personal belongings
- Cleaning exposed surfaces
- Drying the structure
Containing the Floodwater
Containment is one of the initial focuses of cleaning up flood damage in Bellevue homes and businesses. Preventing surface water movement and migrating moisture protects more of the structure and reduces the possibility of widespread microbial growth and contamination.
Preventing Harm to Contents
Personal belongings can quickly find themselves in the damage path of migrating flood loss effects. Standing water and potential contaminants can render contents unsalvageable, so prioritizing relocation and preserving these objects is vital.
Emergency Repairs and Building
Our general contractor license allows us to complete needed controlled demolition and emergency repairs, which begins as soon as we arrive. We can reconstruct damaged utilities or seal/patch over structural vulnerabilities allowing floodwater penetration. Repairs might include rebuilding the roof, replacing siding, or patching breaches in the foundational masonry.
Effective Drying for Flood-Damaged Materials
Drying is one of the foundational elements of every water and flood damage scenario. We have hundreds of air movers and dehumidifiers specifically tasked with evaporating surface moisture and managing humidity. We can also utilize portable heaters to increase the temperature of wet surfaces for faster drying and a greater relative humidity capacity in the structure.
Surface Cleaning and Disinfection
Cleaning up impacted surfaces can be one of the best methods of combatting the possible contamination associated with flooding. We have potent disinfectant agents, chlorines, and phenolics to eliminate surface soiling and microbial threats.
Flooding can be a compromising disaster for your home. Our SERVPRO of Bellevue West team gets cleanup started as soon as we arrive. Call now at (425) 454-3900.
