Storm Damage Oak Ridge Homeowners Benefit from SERVPRO Service for Flood Water Extraction SERVPRO Provides Industry-Leading Equipment for Flood Loss Drying and Restoration in the Oak Ridge Area

The Solution When You Need Flood Water Removal In Oak Ridge

Unexpected household crises create tasks often beyond the experience and capacity of Oak Ridge residents. When flash floods expose your home to severe damage, all might feel lost. Our company commits to providing the communities we serve with top-notch water damage mitigation services, essential when flooding from any cause overwhelms the ability of the typical homeowner to respond to the catastrophe in any meaningful way. Do not despair; we can help.

Flood water removal is a job for professionals in Oak Ridge. If the waters invade from overland flooding, a broad range of contaminants fills the bottom levels of your home. You not only need help to remove the water, but you also must be sure the evacuation includes proper containment and disposal of hazardous waste. Our technicians train extensively in best practices to capture, transport, and discard the flood waters according to local regulations.

Even if the flooding in your home is due to a freshwater plumbing accident or appliance malfunction, SERVPRO works fast to minimize the possibility of microbial growth. Mold spores are always in our homes and need only 24 to 48 hours to activate and grow with the availability of moisture. Regardless of the source of the flooding our motto is “Faster to Any Size Disaster.”

We use the submersible pumps and truck-mounted water extractors on our service vehicles to remove flood water from your home. SERVPRO can use your electricity or our generators if the flooding also knocked out power. This avoids delays that could expose you and your family to pathogens and risks of severe structural deterioration.

Once we remove the flood waters, including any trapped caches we discovered using moisture meters and thermal scanning, SERVPRO crews begin structural drying. Pumps and extractors move aside for air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers. The moisture readings that we took earlier form the baseline for drying goals.

Because of the prevalence of unknown quantities of chemicals, human and animal waste, and other hazardous substances in flood waters, SERVPRO also treats affected surfaces and spaces with EPA registered antimicrobials. This sanitization step inhibits microbial growth and helps ensure safety and odor elimination after flooding.

SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties is ready to respond if flooding damages your home. Call us at (865) 986-3015 round the clock for flood water removal assessment.
