What Makes Flood Damage So Dangerous in Laconia Homes?
SERVPRO Technicians Can Handle Flood Removal Safely in Laconia Properties
Storms can bring various issues to a structure, such as missing shingles allowing roof leaks. Other outcomes for Laconia properties can come in the form of tree limbs breaking windows, lightning strikes causing fires, and flash floods have their own devastating effects on a Laconia property.
When assisting Laconia homeowners with flood damage cleanup, SERVPRO technicians adhere to the guidelines set by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). This strict observance of standards ensures the safety of the technicians and residents. SERVPRO techs inspect the Laconia property for problems caused by the water damage to the structure.
Potential Issues Post-Flood Damage
- Damaged ceilings that could collapse
- Areas with the potential to cause harm through slip and fall accidents
- Electrical dangers
- Contaminated water
Working safely during the flood restoration process comes in many forms. The technicians wear protective clothing, so their skin does not come into contact with contaminated water. Respirators and eye protection are another frequently seen component as water vapor can hold bacteria and pathogens. When a single area receives the effects of the water damage, SERVPRO techs put up containment to halt any cross-contamination occurring during the mitigation. After extracting the floodwater and drying the structure, the technicians disinfect all surfaces affected by the water, so the property is clean and ready for any needed repairs.
