Reflections in the floodwaters “Like it never even happened.”

After You Get Approval From Your Insurer, Call SERVPRO For Rapid-Response Flood Damage Mitigation in Lenoir City

Flood damage can be disastrous in any part of the home, including the garage. Not only can flood waters cause water damage and eventual mold growth on your property, but these waters can bring in insects, industrial waste, sewage, and other contaminants that can affect the safety of your home.

If you need flood damage cleanup for your Lenoir City home’s garage, SERVPRO technicians are ready to answer the call. These Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-certified pros, as well as franchise owners, receive hands-on training in water damage mitigation, biohazard cleanup, and mold remediation to restore residences affected by disaster to a pre-flood condition.

What Can Flood Damage Do to My Garage?
Flooding can affect almost every surface in your garage. Consider the following:

    •    It only takes a few days for floodwaters to tarnish and then corrode metals in your garage, including auto parts, tools, and shelving.
    •    Mold growth can start in as little as 24 to 48 hours after exposure, and can even reproduce on nonporous surfaces in the right conditions.
    •    Floodwaters not only contaminate personal effects and structural materials like drywall and concrete, but they can also compromise the safety of your electrical system.

Does SERVPRO Clean Structures, Contents, or Both During Flood Damage Cleanup?
SERVPRO techs can clean both structural materials and contents in your home that have been affected by floodwaters. Depending on the extent of flooding, the mitigation team cleaning your home may recommend moving your possessions offsite to a SERVPRO warehouse for contents cleaning and restoration. Not only can technicians ensure that your belongings are cleaned and restored as much as possible, but they can also take inventory of your belongings both during the pack-out process, which is beneficial for your proof of loss claim.

SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties provides emergency-response service that is Faster to Any Size Disaster when you call (865) 986-3015.
