How Does Flooding Affect My Garage?
SERVPRO Technicians Mitigate Flood Damage in Tallahassee Residences
Garage flood damage can create a deceptively large amount of repair and cleanup concerns for Tallahassee homeowners. Without professional mitigation, flooding can create a thriving environment for mold, pests, and potential structural damage.
If you flood damage in your Tallahassee property's garage, SERVPRO technicians will remove debris and return your home to a preloss state. SERVPRO's 24/7 emergency response team strives to minimize losses and maximize homeowners' savings affected by a disaster.
What is Most Likely to Become Damaged in a Garage Flood?
- Flooring and sheetrock.Concrete flooring is semi-porous, and while it can withstand water, cracks in your floor can eventually lead to foundation damage. Sheetrock wicks up moisture because of the layers of gypsum and cardboard inside and typically requires removal and replacement after a flood.
- Tools and appliances.Whether your laundry hookups are in the garage or your tools are placed on low shelving, floodwaters can compromise electronic and metal components.
- If you store holiday decorations, cardboard boxes, or paper goods in your garage, flood damage can render these items irreparably damaged by microbes, sewage, chemical runoff, and pests.
How Does SERVPRO Remove Floodwaters from My Property?
SERVPRO uses both portable and truck-mounted extraction tools during the mitigation process to suck up any standing water before performing smaller-scale moisture extraction. Sanitation with EPA-registered antimicrobials and debris removal is a must for ensuring the safety of technicians and occupants. If home flooding has necessitated shutting off your electricity, SERVPRO teams can bring power sources for tools and equipment.
