Determining Restorable and Unsalvageable Items during Flood Damage Restoration in Siesta Key  

Flood damage events give little to no warning, and when they take place, they cause significant losses. No matter how devastating or minor the situation is, you need to work with professionals who have the resources to handle such incidents. By responding immediately, we can lessen the damage, reduce the costs of repair, and limit further damage. Here, we cover some of the procedures we perform when dealing with such events in Siesta Key.

Flood damage incidents in Siesta Key are associated with contaminated water, and there are specific emergency procedures that our SERVPRO technicians perform when attending to such issues. One of the first things that we do when we arrive at the site is to eliminate potential safety hazards. We post signs and use the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment such as rubber gloves, respirators, coveralls, eye protection, and boots.

By using rakes and shovels, we remove the debris and silt that the flood water deposits on your property. Sometimes, the deposits may contain hazardous materials such as asbestos and lead, so, we advise homeowners to observe the necessary safety procedures even when we are yet to arrive at the site. In cases where there is a possibility of the contaminant spreading to unaffected locations, we may put in place containment measures. For instance, we may subject the contaminated area to negative pressure to limit the spread of mold spores to clean areas.

By using pumps, portable and truck-mounted extractors, our SERVPRO technicians remove standing water from floors and carpets. We have to evaluate your items and determine that can be salvaged and what we need to remove and replace. In most cases, we do not disinfect porous items that have come into contact with flood water. When it is necessary to dispose of the unsalvageable materials, we follow the local, state, and federal regulations, and make sure there is sufficient communication with your insurance provider.
