Storm Damage Flood Damaged Homes in the Phoenix Area Require Drying and Cleaning to Restore Habitable Conditions Protect Your Phoenix Area Home from Flooding with SERVPRO'S Help

Removal of Storm Water and Contaminants Are Crucial for a Safe Home

When flooding happens, people are often surprised and shocked at the amount of damage that happens inside their homes. Phoenix residents whose homes flood because of new floodplains or nearby construction need to get their homes dried out and cleaned quickly. Otherwise, several other problems can quickly develop and cause future problems and expenses.

Homes in Phoenix that suffer from flood damage can become habitable again with the proper steps. Drying out an affected home is only half of the battle in saving a home. Flooding brings in untold amounts of debris full of pathogens and chemicals that can cause infections and other medical issues. We eliminate these and sanitize your flooded home so that you can live in it again safely.

To dry out your home, we use pumps for any remaining water. We treat saturated areas by heating them and increasing the circulation of the air around them. This includes all surfaces, and even though ceilings may never touch floodwaters, evaporation causes them to become saturated, also. Personal belongings can be transported to our site for temporary storage and to receive treatment that dries them out and then sanitizes them, removing any pathogens and other contaminants.

Sanitizing your home's interior keeps things safe for your family when they return home. Some items in your home require their removal and replacement because of the inability of any known methods to adequately clean them. These include carpeting, mattresses, and many food products, including those inside your refrigerator.

Carpeting cannot remain after a flood because of the ability of pathogens and other microbes to adhere to the many fibers in the carpet. Mattresses can harbor pathogens much the same way that carpet can. Food items, again, can hold microbes in tiny areas that defy even the best cleaning techniques. Safety and caution first.
 
To clean and sanitize your home we use the latest methods available. We want to ensure that your home protects you and your family. At SERVPRO of Central Phoenix, we have the tools and equipment to help us put our skills and training to work for you. Call us at (602) 386-4268 whenever you have flood damage or other disaster-related situations in your home.
