Some Warning Signs of Contaminated Floodwaters in Your Franklin Home
The Danger of Black Water in Flood Damage and How to Restore it Using a Franklin-based Provider
An overflowing road can cause contaminated water to travel downstream and into your property. Black Water needs professional attention because it can contain harmful pathogens, raw sewage, animal carcasses or herbicides. Once it has entered your home full-scale restoration work is necessary. However, it is imperative that you avoid entering, or coming into contact with the water, at all costs. Your possessions can be restored; your personal safety is of much more importance.
The scale of flood damage to Franklin properties can often be difficult to mitigate. SERVPRO has technicians with IICRC certificates to perform a full restoration. We work with a restore over replace mentality. However, in the case of Black Water that is not always possible. Contaminated water is by nature a health and safety concern, so anything that comes into contact with it needs removal and, in most cases disposal.
SERVPRO can remove sections of drywall to clean behind wall cavities or lift carpets to inspect your subfloor. As far as your possessions are concerned, there is a bright side. Thanks to our external cleaning facilities we may be able to help restore valuables to preloss conditions. Where this is possible, we create an inventory of all pack out items as well as their condition and replace them to you as soon as we can.
Dense materials can be submerged in a solvent and treated with ultrasonic cleaning equipment. Fabrics can be cleaned using Esporta Machine, machines which are made to restore up to 90% of damages. We cannot guarantee your possessions. However, we can promise to use the latest technology, our extensive expertise, and our experience to try to restore them to their preloss conditions.
SERVPRO is one of the few providers that operate locally with access to national resources. We train our first responder technicians to ensure they mitigate as much loss as is possible. We also operate a 24-hour emergency call line to guarantee you can reach us in a time of need.
For an honest, emergency restoration service, contact SERVPRO of the Lakes Region at (603) 527-2518 today.
