Types of Water That Can Cause Flood Damage to Your Tallahassee Home

1/21/2018 (Permalink)

When facing flooding in the home, the best bet is to call the certified professional SERVPRO team to dry out your property and remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Technicians Responds Appropriately to the Type of Water That Flooded Your Home

A flood is a natural disaster that can have a long-lasting impact on your Tallahassee home. There is no doubt that you need professional help in dealing with such a situation. Furthermore, the sooner the professionals get to work, the better.

If you face a flood damage situation in your Tallahassee home, the first thing to do is to ensure your and your family’s safety. SERVPRO considers contamination as another issue to be wary about following the aftermath of a flood. The restoration process depends on the type of water causing the flooding. Successful restoration depends on understanding the type of water involved in the flooding.

Clean water
Clean water is the safest floodwater that does not pose any immediate health risk. Such floods can result from melting snow and heavy rains. However, if the clean water is not removed promptly, it can get contaminated in as little as 48 hours. Thankfully, SERVPRO technicians get to work within four hours from our team receiving your call.

Gray water
Gray water contains microbial contamination and can pose health hazards. It is essential to get rid of this water as soon as possible. Flooding often results in gray water pooling if the floodwater mixes with busted sewer lines.

Black water  
It is perhaps the most dangerous floodwater that is often seen in city-wide flooding. It may contain human waste, raw sewage, chemicals, pesticides and even flooding animal carcasses. As a result, this type of water is laden with dangerous bacteria. SERVPRO professionals do not offer a cleaning and disinfecting service for carpets, paddings, and walls affected by black water.

Make sure that you call in expert flood damage restoration professionals as soon as you can. The experts can assess the situation, devise a plan and get the restoration done in no time.

Call SERVPRO of North Leon County at (850) 536-6599 today to speak to one of our technicians to discuss your situation. Our professionals work hard to restore flood damage “Like it never even happened.”
