Storms can cause severe flooding. The storms in 2020 have been more frequent and stronger, leaving devastation in their path. If you have floodwater in your home, you need professional mitigation. You should never attempt to clean up contaminated water on your own. At Hometown Restoration, we provide restoration clean up service in Elfin Forest.
Safety Comes First
If floodwaters come surging through your home, your priority is to get your family to safety. Always obey all evacuation orders. To clean up floodwaters, you need professionals equipped with the proper PPE, cleaning, and sanitizing agents. Black water can contain:
- Medical waste
- Dead animals
This type of water should never be entered by anyone who does not have the right gear and equipment. Our technicians are Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified and know how to mitigate the risks. They provide the proper mitigation safely.
What Does Hometown Restoration Do After Flooding?
If emergency mitigation, such as tarping or containment, is needed, we immediately take care of that. We then do a scope of the area and put a plan together for clean up and restoration. Water extraction is the primary concern. We have industrial trash pumps that remove not only water but debris as well. Our technicians also:
- Use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the residence
- Sanitize all surfaces with antimicrobial agents
- Dispose of all unsalvageable items
- Remove content to our warehouse for cleaning if necessary
- Clean the home
- Repair and restore the residence
When a flood happens, it can be devastating. You can end up displaced on top of dealing with the mess the flood has left. We try to reduce as much stress as possible so you can deal with the things you need too. For restoration clean up service in Elfin Forest, contact us at (760) 274-8016.
