Maintaining Safety When Restoring Flood Damage Incidents in Sarasota

Cleaning up and dealing with other damages left by floods may be the main focus after your Sarasota home floods, but you must follow the right approaches when performing the restoration to guarantee the right outcome. When you call SERVPRO, we strive to maintain high safety standards throughout the process of restoring the damage from flooding.

Planning the loss site

Chaos! One word often used to describe the aftermath of flood damage incidents in Sarasota. Sometimes the restoration process ends up worsening the situation because of the teardown and contents movements involved. Our SERVPRO technicians make an effort to plan the loss site for safety and convenience when doing the restoration. Simple steps that help include planning where to place dumpsters, generators, or other resources. We also cut down debris from materials such as carpets and drywall reducing them to sizes that can fit perfectly into trash receptacles.

Protecting the site

Although the flooding incident causes much of the damages immediately, the site can continue deteriorating over time.  It is also probable to harm the property during the process of restoring it. Our SERVPRO technicians take different steps to protect the loss site from further damages. The steps may be elaborate such as boarding up openings or setting up containment barriers using plastic sheets inside the structure.  Simple steps such as placing boards over surfaces such as gravel driveways before placing a dumpster also help protect the site.

Recognizing hazards

Dealing with flooding incidents can be risky. Identify existing hazards and preparing for potential ones is the best approach to ensure safe restoration. Our SERVPRO technicians check issues such as slippery floors, tangled cables, and other obstructions that may lead to trip or slip accidents at the loss site. We also check for electrical faults to prevent electrocution. As a precaution, we use GFCI, Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters, to protect our machines when using them in wet conditions.

Floods can continue posing threats even after the water recedes. Call SERVPRO of South Sarasota at (941) 552-6319 to help run the restoration process safely. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
