We Are Knee-Deep in Floodwater -- Who Can Help Remove It Fast in Augusta?
Post-Storm Floodwater Removal in Augusta Completes Quickly When SERVPRO Arrives with a Trained Team and the Appropriate Equipment
Torrential rains sweep and train across Georgia toward Augusta, fueled by different extreme weather systems, including hurricanes, tropical storms, and tropical depressions. When several inches of rain falls during a short period, the ground cannot absorb the moisture fast enough. Saturated landscaping near your foundation and the potential for overland floods combine to confront you with several inches of contaminated fluids in your lowest levels.
Is It Important to Remove Flood Waters Promptly?
Floodwater removal in your Augusta home is an urgent matter. The need for speed raises your stress levels because no homeowner is ready to rid a property of significant amounts of excess water without professional help. Why is it critical to prioritize water removal?
• Water is a corrosive substance, rapidly causing the swelling and distortion or break down of many common building materials including:
-Unfinished wood (subfloors and framing)
• Water also contributes to mold growth. Moisture left unabated for 24 to 48 hours can incubate a nasty mold infestation.
• Floodwater is nearly always contaminated with chemicals, organic debris, and sewage backup. Human pathogens in the sewage can place your family at risk of grave illness.
