What steps should I take after there is flood damage to my home?
Your main concern after an emergency is keeping yourself out of harm's way. Once the area is secure and you secure alternate accommodations as needed, our SERVPRO crew arrives at your home wearing personal protective equipment. Creating a barrier between us and any residual bacteria is essential, which is why we also separate any unaffected areas of your home to discourage cross-contamination. We set up a staging area to separate non-damaged furniture and belongings if possible. Whenever we identify objects with porous surfaces such as upholstery or heavy fabrics, we assess the damage and discard them as needed. Other steps we take in removing floodwaters and the bacteria within them include the following:
- Truck-mounted pumps- if the volume of water in your home is significant, we may bring this type of pump, which allows us to retrieve it and dispose of it following environmental guidelines
- Wiping down surfaces using EPA-approved cleaning and disinfecting solutions
- Using thermal imaging technology to identify areas where water is still present.
The restoration process is complicated, but with SERVPRO of North Mississauga, you are in good hands. Call us at (905) 238-7376 as soon as the emergency occurs and let us work hard to leave your home "Like it never even happened."
