What Resources Help Save Property after Flood Damage?
What Does SERVPRO Do to Help Destin Residents Affected by Flood Damage?
Storms and hurricanes have had a profound influence on the history of the city. For instance, even though it is currently located on a peninsula that separates Choctawhatchee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, the area was originally a barrier island. However, hurricanes and changing sea levels gradually connected the island to the mainland, forming the peninsula. It was also identified in a 2013 study as having a high risk of inundation compared to other cities in Florida.
Since inundation from flooding is a typical risk in the area, residents need a solid plan to save their properties when affected. The circumstances that lead to flooding differ in each incident, and therefore the response plan must be flexible to be helpful.
SERVPRO handles flood damage restoration professionally and is therefore well suited to respond to any incident. We have highly trained technicians and a variety of sophisticated restoration equipment to match the needs of every restoration task. Some of the standard services we offer during restoration include:
- Content move-outs to create room for repair or minimize exposure to floodwaters
- Structure protection through boarding up
- Decontaminating and deodorization of the structure
