Let Our Professionals Restore Your Home In Red Wing After A Flood
Remediating Flood Damage In Red Wing
Red Wing residents understand that snow, once it melts, can flood their homes just like a thunderstorm. Despite a snowfall’s clean appearance, by the time it turns to water and finds its way under doors, and other points inside still carry the same soil and contaminants as rain.
SERVPRO teams first make certain the structure is safe for themselves and the residents before they begin to restore a home in Red Wing after flood damage. That means spraying an anti-bacterial agent on standing water and surfaces that were underwater at any time during the flood to eliminate the immediate health threat.
Next, team members begin removing the water while others start moving furniture out of the flooded area. They use the same equipment to remove both floodwater and uncontaminated water from a pipe leak; the difference is how they dispose of it.
Technicians can allow uncontaminated water to run anywhere, but floodwater they direct into the nearest sewer drain. If the drains are still flooded or otherwise unavailable, our teams pump it into a tank truck. Once they complete work, the truck delivers the floodwater to a treatment plant for purification and return to the local water table.
Meanwhile, other SERVPRO technicians clean flood damage from furniture and other property. They start by wiping down the surfaces with an anti-bacterial agent to eliminate the contamination threat. If the floodwater deeply soaked into upholstered furniture, then our teams use a powerful fabric cleaner to eliminate and remove contaminants. They also serve to eliminate most odors as well.
The one item that our technicians do not remediate is carpeting. We cannot provide a 100% guarantee that the carpet is safe after cleaning, so we only recommend removal and disposal, just like with a carpet pad after it soaks up any water, clean or contaminated.
At SERVPRO of Cannon Valley, our goal is to return each home to its clean, safe, pre-flood condition. We hope that no one experiences flooding this winter, but if it does happen, call us immediately at (507) 334-2565 to schedule a visit from one of our restoration teams. We are here for you.
