Flooding in your home in Mary Ester can be quite overwhelming, particularly when you don't know what to look for in terms of damage. You may think that extracting water is all you need to do to bring your home back to mint condition, but it is not enough. A professional team can point out any areas of risk in your home to take timely action and protect your family from future complications.

When water disasters occur, most homeowners do not realize that structural elements in their homes may be vulnerable. The spread of bacteria and even the growth of mold can become a reality if humidity is not put under control.

How do I protect my walls from flood damage?

Our SERVPRO team takes inventory of the damage in your home and plans the equipment and techniques we need. Controlling excess moisture is crucial to our success, so equipment such as dehumidifiers, air movers, and water extractors are standard in our restoration jobs. As we document the process, we pay close attention to the presence of bacteria and hidden water deposits so we can take care of them. This documentation can be beneficial as you connect with your insurance company to file a claim. Meanwhile, to protect your walls, we may take some of the following steps depending on your needs:

    •    Replacing drywall sections as needed and repainting
    •    Preparing the area for other contractors that may need to come in
    •    Disinfecting all areas of your home to avoid the growth of bacteria
