Flood Damage Restoration Is Time Sensitive

Flooding is fast and aggressive, overwhelming structures and families. We are trusted restoration professionals who help with storm relief and post-flood cleanup.

The Steps of Mitigation

Flood damage cleanup in Chesapeake Beach homes starts with the mitigation and emergency services our restoration team can provide. A fast response to these emergencies ensures we can protect more property through swift action to lessen the impact of migrating water and moisture on the property. Some of the earliest mitigative steps that can start the restoration process include:

  • Water Removal 

Water removal is among the first steps restoration professionals take in flooded homes and businesses. Extractors must manage water and potential solids, making trash pumps and wet vacuums preferable.

  • Muck-Out Cleaning

The presence of debris and solids brought in with the natural flooding can threaten the house. Not only is this a source of contamination for the structure, but it could also lead to more significant concerns like bug and pest infestations if not managed quickly. The Bay can sweep sludge, sand, organic debris, and "denizens of the deep" onto properties.

  • Repairs

With a general contractor license, we can repair damaged areas of the property impacted by the flood. Additionally, during mitigation, our contractor license is beneficial for removing exposed materials we cannot salvage.

Cleaning After Flood Exposure

Before complete and effective cleaning can take place, our technicians prioritize drying. Using various products, from air movers to mops and towels, we can remove pooling water or puddling on nonporous materials like tile and concrete. With these surfaces cleared and dried, more significant measures can be taken to remove contaminants and debris still impacting the property.

Contamination is a considerable concern when floodwater infiltrates areas of your property. Our team cleans nonporous materials, while porous elements often will be removed and replaced. Controlled demolition is frequently a key element in structural restoration and repair. In addition, we have a line of proprietary products designed for effective cleaning and restoration solutions after potential contamination.

Because flooding can happen without warning, homes can be devastated by intruding water. Restoration professionals must act fast to mitigate loss and protect the property from further harm. We are specialists focusing on safety, cleanliness, and thorough recovery until life returns to normal. When disasters strike, call SERVPRO of Calvert County at (410) 535-4733.
