Hurricane Florence And Recovering Flood Damages In Your Charleston Home

You might not need a reminder about the effects of hurricanes and severe weather systems on your Charleston home. With the devastation that Hurricane Florence brought to the Carolinas this past month, it is more prevalent than ever the damage that these storms can do with the right conditions. Flooding was one of the worst conditions that homes in the area faced, and our technicians continue to be available to help throughout recovery efforts.

Some Charleston homeowners are getting their first look at flood damages and the kind of condition that a house gets left in, even if it did not get structurally compromised by the gale force winds of the storm. Overcoming these effects might seem nearly impossible at first, but with the right professional assistance such as our experienced SERVPRO technicians, you can start to see the possibility of restoring your damaged home entirely.

While the pooled water throughout your home persists as the most immediate threat, our technicians can get to work quickly on removing this effect through the use of truck-mounted pumps and wet-vacs with extraction wands for more inaccessible areas. The remaining moisture requires a combined effort of air movers to force water out of challenging areas and dehumidification equipment to pull moisture out of materials in the affected areas.

Unfortunately, that is not all that our SERVPRO professionals have to overcome when it comes to widespread flooding like this. Debris, mud, and contaminants all pose risks to your house in their own regard, which require advanced cleaning techniques and equipment to remove the dirt and to disinfect the environment as well. Assessments begin into the structural integrity of affected materials to determine if they still possess the ability to function as they should or require replacement.

Flooding is not something that homeowners can easily overcome, but something that no person has to face on their own. With the industry-leading equipment and expertise of our SERVPRO of Downtown Charleston technicians, you always have the help you need to set things right. Give us a call anytime that you need us at (843) 577-2470.
