Why Not Ask For Help With Flood Damage Remediation in Your Montgomery Home
The Risks of DIY Flood Recovery in Montgomery Homes
Flooding is not something that Montgomery homeowners are unfamiliar with contending with, though many are still under the impression that there are ways to avoid the need for professional restoration services after these disasters. The belief is that with a fast response to the water damage and the lingering effects that must get thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, that conventional cleaning and drying approaches can address these concerns. The truth is, many homeowners end up allowing persistent moisture and damages to continue without even realizing it, which can lead to greater losses and degradation over time.
While there are many initial steps that homeowners can take to reduce the severity of flood damage in Montgomery properties, it is a sound investment to reach out to qualified restoration specialists like our SERVPRO team. We have extensive training in flood recovery, including accreditations from both the American Bio Recovery Association (ABRA) for cleaning contaminants present after natural flooding and the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) for overcoming water damage.
Homeowners attempting to address all of the damage from a flood on their own often do not realize the full extent of these conditions they face. Without the sophisticated equipment available to our professionals in the industry, like hygrometers and our infrared imagery, moisture pockets and dampness beyond the surface goes unnoticed and unresolved. These symptoms can persist, allowing secondary effects like mold growth to occur.
Perhaps even more challenging than the possibility of mold and microbial growth to contend with after flooding is the threat of contamination and bacteria present in natural floodwater from rising creeks and streams. With paths that rising water must take to reach and affect your home, it has the opportunity to come into contact with a long list of potential contaminants including sewage, chemicals, dead animals, and more. We have a team of biohazard recovery specialists that can help to address these threatening situations.
From the time that our professionals first arrive at your home, we work to mitigate your loss and begin drying out affected areas of the property. With the right response from homeowners, our SERVPRO of Montgomery rapid response team can make flood effects “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (334) 273-0992.
