Flood Damage and Cleanup in Your Cape Coral Home

Storm Damage Flood Damage and Cleanup in Your Cape Coral Home The sight of flood waters entering your home can be completely overwhelming. Call SERVPRO right after you get to safety for drying out services.

SERVPRO Technicians Arrive Quickly to Dry Out Your Flooded Property

To some degree, flooding can affect any area. Wherever rain falls in Cape Coral, flooding is a disaster that can happen. As rain falls, it soaks into the earth, and if the surface is impervious like concrete or asphalt, or the soil is saturated already, and the water cannot absorb quickly enough, problems can arise. Water running into channels and streams downhill starts to pile up and eventually runs over the sides.
 
When the area you live in floods, and the waters invade your home, it can be stressful and devastating. Flood damage in Cape Coral can quickly overtake your whole home. Our team at SERVPRO is always standing by to help you out in a situation like this. We can extract the water from your home, dry it back out, and salvage everything possible so you can get your life back on track.
 
Once we extract the standing water from your home with truck-mounted pumps and finish drying your home, we also need to deodorize it. There are some procedures which may be done after a flooding situation. When it comes to carpeting, we treat both sides of the carpet and floor with the right EPA-registered disinfectant. We also fog with the appropriate odor control before or after cleaning, depending on the circumstances.
 
For any of your upholstered furniture, we mist on a deodorizer after we clean it and treat it for mildew. With any hard surface flooring, SERVPRO techs deodorize it by mopping it with an appropriate EPA disinfectant, or by fogging it with the right odor control. We use a ULV fogger for large surface areas which are severely damaged.
 
Ceilings and walls are usually deodorized in the same manner as your flooring and carpeting. We use a ULV fogger here as well or use a pump sprayer for application. When there are areas of significant odor, we use pellets to mask odors during the process of drying.
 
SERVPRO of Cape Coral works hard to take care of your home in Pineland, Caloosahatchee, or Burnt Store after a flooding disaster. Just give us a call anytime you need at (239) 573-5911 so we can begin right away to get your home back to normal.
