Local Cape Coral Floodwater Extraction Services

Living in Florida makes flood damage a familiar affair for the average homeowner. Every year, from June 1 to November 30, hurricane season occurs and brings with it the threat of severe storms. Because Florida is a peninsula, storms can hit from either the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic ocean.

So, what do you do when your Cape Coral requires flood water extraction services? Imagine a situation where a minor hurricane causes your garage to flood. Many seasonal possessions are stored inside, such as camping gear, skiing equipment for vacation, surfboards, and hiking gear. When a flood hits, it could pose a risk to the possessions stored inside of your garage.

Furthermore, floodwaters are not always safe for non-professionals to handle. Black Water is a floodwater classification, which means that there are dangerous chemicals, pollutants, or even biohazardous materials in the water. For this reason, you should always reach out for floodwater extraction experts, like SERVPRO, if a severe storm causes damage. With storm surges from the Gulf of Mexico, saltwater intrusion can have a significantly damaging effect upon structures and contents. The corrosive nature of this water is epic.

Here at SERVPRO, we always rush to your aid after your call. Even if low roadways are flooded, trees have fallen, or traffic is severely backed up, we could still try to make our way to your home. We understand how anxiety-inducing the situation is for any homeowner and how time-sensitive water-based damages are. Bear in mind, that we must wait for official approval to travel the roads in the event of a strong storm.

Once we arrive at your home, we can clear any debris and then get inside of your garage. SERVPRO uses advanced technological devices, such as industrial-grade wet/dry vacuums and extractors to remove standing water. Once the water is gone, we could begin to go through your belongings, getting rid of soaked boxes, bring your possessions to our facility to be dried, and then repack them. It may not be a fast process, but you can trust SERVPRO to be thorough and to handle your possessions with care. Once finished, we could move everything back into your garage and then return your home to you, "Like it never even happened."

Sometimes, the above scenario does not come to fruition. Contaminated groundwater may dictate the disposal of materials and possessions, though we try to salvage whatever is possible.

Whenever your home experiences flood damage, never wait to get the help you need. Get in contact with SERVPRO of Cape Coral by phoning (239) 573-5911.
