I Have a Mess After a Recent Flood in my Helena home, What Do I Do?

5/17/2020 (Permalink)

To Address Flood Damage, SERVPRO Will Come to Your Helena Home to Formulate a Restoration Plan

Once the water recedes from a recent flood, you are left to deal with the fallout. Any of the surfaces throughout your home touched by the floodwater requires professional cleaning. This category 2 or category 3 water includes any variety of contaminants, all of which our trained technicians at SERVPRO know how to address and eliminate quickly and efficiently.

Can’t I Just Cleanup the Water Myself?

Any flood damage in Helena brings the potential for hidden moisture and the growth of harmful bacteria. Even if there is a small amount of moisture left behind, mold and mildew start to fester, making your interior air dangerous to breathe in. To make sure that we remove all of the water and moisture from your home, we bring industrial-strength equipment like:

    •    Pumps and Extraction Wands – We have truck-mounted extractors, submersible pumps, light wands, and rovers that allow us to pull up every bit of standing water.
    •    Air Movers and Fans – Our water restoration technicians (WRT) carefully plan for the best placement of this equipment to ensure adequate airflow. We control both the force and direction of the air as well as the temperature to amplify drying and prevent further damage.
    •    Dehumidifiers – With any flooding situation, excessive moisture in the air makes it difficult for natural evaporation to be enough. Our dehumidifiers are powerful enough to remove gallons of water from the air, thus bringing the relative humidity down much faster.

We Always Decontaminate and Disinfect

With any flood loss event, proper cleaning, decontamination, and disinfection are crucial. We bring along EPA-approved anti-bacterial agents for wiping down surfaces to ensure that your home is safe for you and your family to enter.

Nothing beats the flood damage mitigation services we have to offer at SERVPRO of Helena & Great Falls. To deploy a team to your location in as little as four hours or less, call us at (406) 458-6008.
