The forces associated with a storm and flood waters can ruin your home's interior contents and finish materials. They can also harm electrical equipment, appliances, and other personal belongings. You need to seek restoration services from a firm that can handle storm flood damage of any size or scope. SERVPRO is equipped with advanced tools and equipment to help you reclaim your property.

All our customers and their properties are valuable to us. We put a property’s safety and offer high-quality storm flood damage repair services in Gatlinburg. We also have a fast response time that helps minimize the chances of further destruction to property. Some of the types of flood damage that occur in buildings include:

  • Cosmetic damage – Flood water can ruin carpeting, walls, and furniture.
  • Structural damage – If the water soaks into floor joists and studs, it weakens the structure of a house.
  • Electrical damage – If flood water reaches the outlets in your home, it can lead to a power outage, ruin the wiring or short out outlets.
  • Mold infestation – Mold can develop within 24 to 72 hours after flood waters enter your home.

The flood damage repair process we follow varies significantly based on its severity and the affected structures. We can advise you what we need to do to repair your home after the assessment. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect all structures and contents of a home to determine what requires restoration. We can remove the unsalvageable structures and contents and dispose of them properly.

Our technicians also use EPA-registered broad-spectrum disinfectants when cleaning flood-damaged homes. We mix the products in the dilution ratios that the label has recommended and the application methods specified. When applying the products, our SERVPRO technicians use methods and quantities that allow the solution to physically contact all the contaminated surfaces and materials. We also allow enough dwell time for the solutions to be effective.

Our SERVPRO water restoration technicians (WRT) also take steps to dry a home thoroughly. We can use high-volume air movers and dehumidifiers to dry affected areas.
