You Can Count On Southern Restoration When You Need Flood Damage Repairs in Raleigh
When your property floods the damage it causes can range from localized damage to massive damage that can displace you until the repairs are completed. This damage can happen in the blink of an eye, like when a water heater bursts, but it can also be something that happens over the course of time (think a slow leak in your water lines). Proper maintenance & preparation can prevent some flooding issues, but there is simply no way to prevent every flooding situation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare. Southern Restoration is IICRC certified and on call 24/7 because flooding can happen when you least expect it and it always seems to happen at the most inconvenient times. Out flood restoration team in Raleigh will be on site fast to get started with the mitigation process, so if you’ve found yourself here because you are dealing with a flood, call us as soon as possible at 919-628-9996.
Flood Mitigation Is The First Part Of Our Flood Cleanup Process
When flooding happens, the most important thing to do is make sure that the threat of damage is mitigated. Because there are so many causes of floods, this process can vary from job to job, but in general the goal is to stop the source of the flood and make sure that there aren’t problems in the future. We also want to remove any standing water as soon as possible so that the water can’t spread to other parts of your home that weren’t damaged. Once the threat of more flooding has been neutralized, our team will start drying your home out so that mold won’t start to grow. Drying out your home involves placing industrial strength fans and it can take up to a week depending on the size of the flood. Our team will also clean and disinfect the area so that there is are no pathogens (like mold or bacteria) that may have started to grow because of the standing water.
