SERVPRO Offers Stress-Free Storm Water Cleanup Services in Raleigh

Professional stormwater removal services can prevent further damage when your property experiences a disastrous event. No matter how big the mess may appear, all is not lost since there are chances of finding restorable items on your property. Immediate action is the best thing you can ever do to avoid potential long-term problems like mold growth.

During stormwater mitigation in Raleigh, our SERVPRO technicians do a thorough inspection of the site and come up with appropriate restoration techniques. We begin by performing a safety assessment and implementing the necessary precautions to ensure the place is safe for occupants and our team. The following are some of the safety risks we watch out for:

  • Structural instability
  • Electrical hazards
  • Biohazard contamination
  • Slip and fall hazards

The other step that our SERVPRO team performs during water damage remediation is removing debris and standing water from the site. We may use shovels and rakes to remove the dirt - the situation determines the approach. In most incidents, stormwater carries along regulated hazardous materials, so we carefully dispose of the extracted water and debris. The disposal is per local or state regulations.

At this point, we evaluate the entire structure to determine which areas and contents need decontamination. A material's porosity determines whether decontamination can take place. Since we may be dealing with black water, we dispose of the insulation, carpet, and pad during water damage cleanup.

We have the job of documenting all the items that need to be disposed of and ensuring your insurance adjuster is informed. We can then pressure wash non-porous structural components such as walls and floors and later disinfect them using EPA-registered disinfectants.

SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest is always ready to mitigate all water, mold, fire, and storm damage emergencies. You can call (617) 466-6909 to learn more about our restoration services and work with highly trained technicians.
