SERVPRO Expedites Water Cleanup for Largo Homes to Minimize Damages

The need to remove the floodwaters that flow into your Largo home is obvious since it causes numerous inconveniences, including slick or soiled surfaces. Apart from the inconveniences, there is a danger in letting water stagnate in the property for long. 

Professionals like SERVPRO seek to achieve different goals when conducting flood water removal from Largo homes. Faster removal can help salvage expensive fixtures such as engineered wood flooring. It also helps reduce the level of secondary microbial growth, which, if left unchecked, can contaminate the property unnecessarily. 

When Done Properly, Flood Water Removal Can Help Reduce:

  • Flood restoration
  • Water damage repairs
  • Ceiling repairs from water damages

SERVPRO technicians employ various techniques to effect the removal depending on where the intruding water concentrates. 

Some of the Practical Water Clean-up Approaches Include:

  • Drilling weep holes in the ceiling
  • Making flood cuts on walls
  • Using vacuum extractors

In most cases, floodwaters contain various dissolved residues which impede removal. Our SERVPRO technicians can overcome such challenges by using superior equipment. For instance, with self-priming trash pumps, it is possible to remove various forms of floodwater, including slurry. The pumps range from semi-trash pumps that can handle solids in water less than ?" to full trash pumps that handle solids over 3". 

Water removal also involves drying the wet materials. For instance, drying the wet planks of a wooden floor helps reverse swelling, thus preventing severe damage. Our SERVPRO technicians set up dehumidifiers and air movers to expedite drying.

SERVPRO of Largo handles all aspects of floodwater removal comfortably. Call us at (727) 586-0060. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
