Rising Creeks and Swollen Rivers Bring Flood Damage to the Homes of Sandy Springs
When Unwanted Water Damages Your Sandy Spring Property, SERVPRO Offers a Crucial First Response
Sandy Springs homeowners might find their neighborhoods taking on the water this spring when nearby waterways rise too quickly. These can bring about the flooding of not only yards and streets but also homes when debris clogs multiple drains at the street's curb.
When drains become clogged up, water must go somewhere, and too often, the water ends up causing flood damage to homes in Sandy Springs. Reacting swiftly to this type of emergency can mean the difference between a little damage and much more extensive problems that becomes increasingly more expensive to mitigate and restore.
SERVPRO technicians, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster, so calling us for even slight flooding can protect your property from on-going water damage, microbial infestations, and other situations that you most likely wish to avoid. Many materials can remain and do not require removal for restoration to proceed. Our employees use cleansers and antimicrobial agents to remove grime and organic matter from surfaces.
Removing carpets from flooded homes helps to reduce the amount of moisture that can affect the home's interior. Flooding increases the amount of humidity held in the air, which can then condense on, and damage, other surfaces within your dwelling, including personal belongings. This occurs at every level of the home, including second stories and attics.
We continually work at drying a flooded home with air movers, desiccant machines, heated mats, and air movers. This can take several days or more, depending on how saturated a house became during the flooding event. Our technicians regularly check the moisture levels to keep the rate of evaporation steady and at an appropriate speed. Drying too quickly can also pose problems because shrinkage rates on one side of material must match the other side to avoid cracking of materials and other problems.
SERVPRO of North Fulton County's specialists and technicians understand the particular requirements of flooded homes. Flood damage continues to spread within a home until professional mitigation commences. Calling us at (770) 992-2777 puts you in contact 24/7 with us.
