Who Can Remove Floodwaters From My Home?

8/28/2020 (Permalink)

Homes in flood water Flooding is no match for SERVPRO. We are equipped and ready at a moment's notice to restore your home.

SERVPRO Is Ready 24/7 To Help You Dry Your Home.

Dirty floodwater requires a swift response to avoid further damages. If your Gatlinburg home has flooded, you need trained experts who can quickly remove water and dry out your home. 

How Does SERVPRO Remove floodwater?

Once our team of technicians arrive at your home, we can deploy our three tools for removing water:

Truck-mounted extractors: When a large quantity of water is present in your home, we can use truck-mounted extractors to vacuum water from your floors.

Portable Extractors: Our technicians use these extractors to reach restricted areas in your house that the truck-mounted extractors cannot reach. 

Pumps: When there are more than two inches of flooding in your home, submersible pumps can be used to extract the water. 

What If Water Gets Inside My Walls?

SERVPRO technicians can inspect your walls with thermal cameras and moisture meters to check for floodwater. If water is found, we can begin ventilating your walls by drilling holes and forcing dry air inside with specialty drying equipment. 

Will My House Smell Because of Flooding?

Flood water consists of unclean Category 3 black water. Blackwater is unsanitary and can leave an unpleasant smell. While the worst odors will be removed with the floodwaters, residual odors can remain even after drying. We use several methods to neutralize these odors:

Injecting deodorant into affected spots 

Directly spraying disinfectants onto affected surfaces

Wet Fogging your house with deodorizers 

Using air scrubbers to capture odors and chemicals from the air. 

While deodorizing, we can apply disinfectants to help mitigate dangers from bacteria and viruses. Rest assured, we will do our best to make sure your home is sanitary.

If you are the victim of flooding, then call SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties at (865) 429-8885, and we will get you on your way to feeling "Like it never even happened."
