SERVPRO Understands That Flood Removal Needs To Happen Fast In Phoenix
Flood Removal in Phoenix Attic Needs Fast Action
Water from a storm doesn't have to spread over a large part of the home to cause flood damage. A water intrusion in a small area can do several types of damage ceilings, walls, flooring, wet objects and the potential for mold growth.
When a roof gets damaged in a Phoenix home and water enters the attic space, flood removal needs to happen as quickly as possible to mitigate damage. Sometimes when space is limited, we have to get creative to get the job done. If the repair to the roof is not done during the time our technicians are working, they can apply a temporary barrier to prevent any additional water from entering until the repair is completed.
Standing water needs to be removed to halt any further damage to the home and contents. SERVPRO technicians can use long hose attachments on extractors to get rid of the standing water in the attic that is too small to bring much equipment into.
Soaked insulation is removed so moisture is not retained. We position air movers and dehumidifiers to move air out and lower moisture as fast as possible. If the ceiling below the attic is showing signs of water saturation, technicians can drill weep holes to assist with drying. We use moisture probes to determine how far reaching the water intrusion was so there is no potential of mold growth from untreated areas.
After drying, SERVPRO technicians wipe down the affected areas to sanitize and inhibit the growth of bacteria and microbes. If affected drywall cannot be saved through our drying techniques, damaged sagging drywall is removed for safety. Often drying is enough to eliminate odors left from water. If there are any residual odors, we have the resources to neutralize them thoroughly.
