SERVPRO Performs Appropriate and Timely Water Damage Repairs Limiting the Damages from Flooding

Storms overwhelm properties with tremendous forces such as fast-moving waters and high winds, resulting in immense damages. Even worse, most of the losses may happen within minutes or hours. Despite this, limiting the level of damages these incidents leave at your Peabody home is still possible.

Controlling flood damage in your Peabody house means identifying issues likely to develop later after the initial water intrusion, wind, or damage from heavy debris. Using restorative approaches that do not harm the property is also a way to exert the necessary control. It is easier to achieve these and other goals with professional assistance from SERVPRO.

Professional flood management covers various aspects, including:

  • Rodent clean up services
  • Biohazard remediation
  • Ceiling repairs from water damages
  • Cleaning up after a sewer backup

A flooding incident creates various complications that can worsen outcomes, including:

  • Severe contamination
  • Microbial growth
  • Over wetting materials
  • Deep soiling

An issue like microbial growth involves microorganisms like bacteria and fungus, which thrive especially in wet environments. When our SERVPRO technicians expedite water removal or set up dehumidifiers at the loss site to keep relative humidity levels below 60%, it is possible to limit the resulting damage.

People or small animals can also vandalize the loss site after it is hit by flooding. Our SERVPRO teams take protective steps such as boarding up exterior openings, thus keeping all vandals out. 

Timely action from SERVPRO of Salem / Peabody / Marblehead can significantly impact the outcome of flood damage incidents. Call us at (978) 744-4545. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
