Handling Storm Flood Damage in Gilroy Necessitates SERVPRO's Expertise

After a storm has damaged your home, you might be wondering what steps to take to repair it. You may also wonder if your home can get back to its original state, especially if it has issues like weakened floorboards and joints.

Pests like termites are also attracted to damp environments. Thankfully, specialists like SERVPRO can handle the storm flood damage in your Gilroy residence. We can prevent a wide range of issues, including:

  • Electrical problems
  • Corrosion
  • Structural deterioration
  • Mold infestation
  • Extreme damage to your possessions

The process of getting your house back to its former state after a storm involves removing debris, removing floodwater, cleaning and disinfecting all affected materials, drying the building, and performing necessary repairs. If your home has a basement, our SERVPRO team can use high-pressure pumps to remove the floodwater. These pumps are designed to offer high pressure which delivers above a typical discharge head (up to 360′). High-pressure pumps provide a high amount of lift and are ideal for pumping out underground structures like parking garages and basements.

Our SERVPRO crew can use air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers to dry your home. Air movers support restoration efforts by reducing drying time and enhancing evaporation at the surface level. Desiccant dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air using chemicals that easily absorb moisture. The chemicals, referred to as desiccants, have a high affinity for water and absorb moisture from the air the dehumidifier processes.

Our SERVPRO team can also encapsulate the crawl spaces in your home. Encapsulation is changing the nature of a crawl space by sealing out the sources of water and moisture. It involves adding heavy-duty polyethylene sheeting to a crawl space's foundation walls and floors. This procedure helps keep the area drier and cleaner than it would typically be. Encapsulation also prevents the build-up of mold, pest infestations, and wood rot.
