Floody, Muddy Waters? In Spokane Folks Call SERVPRO for Removal and Cleanup
Understanding the Difference Between Water & Flood Damage in Your Spokane Home
Many Spokane homeowners consider water damage to be the same as flood damage and this assumption can get people into a bit of trouble. In general, floods cause more significant health risks and cost more to repair. However, there is more to it, and you need to understand how to discern between the two and what this means for your home.
When you think about it, water problems can come from anywhere, including leaks in your roof, plumbing fixtures, appliances, and more. It also usually only affects a small area making things hard, but not unmanageable. However, flood damage can hit your Spokane area home fast, leaving everything around you covered in sewage, mud, and other debris that affect your entire property and beyond. While floods are commonly temporary, the cleanup process can end up taking a long time.
All of the mud and debris swept in by a flood leaves a residue behind that requires removal before disinfecting your property can begin. Professionals, like those offered by SERVPRO, disinfect every surface found in your home; a process that includes applying biocides, antimicrobials, and bacterial disinfectants to everything, by hand.
SERVPRO technicians use infrared and thermal imaging to locate all of the hidden pockets of moisture in your home. Every enclosed space can contain any of a variety of mold spores carried in by a flood, and they need to be taken care of before they can grow. We use water extractors, dehumidifiers, air movers, and all sorts of different equipment to address problems found in your home.
SERVPRO’s staff also helps you communicate with your insurance provider, improving the overall claim process. We help you get the emergency support you need to make your house a home again, “Like it never even happened.” Our team manages the entire restoration process from start to finish, this includes all repairs and helping prepare your home against future incursion.
