How Mitigation Helps Your Nashville Home After Flood Damage
Mitigation Helps Your Home After Flood
SERVPRO is well-known around the country for our mitigation strategy. As part of this strategy, we have personnel ready around the clock to respond to damage reports and mitigate as much damage as possible through timely responses and emergency measures. We are prepared to employ mitigation techniques for everything from fires to extreme mold damage, but our service shines the most when helping to mitigate Nashville flood damages. When a flood hits, timing is critical, as only a few hours can make an enormous difference. Here are the main ways our mitigation approach helps to reduce costs and save your home from a flood.
Fast Water Extraction
The most important step in our emergency Nashville flood damage response plan is to begin removing all water possible immediately. Allowing water to stay past its due invites mold, fungi, and significant damage to the home. Even in the dead of night, our technicians come out with powerful water extraction pumps and air movers to pull standing water out of the home in a matter of hours and immediately begin the process of drying walls and fabrics such as carpeting. If your home has taken on standing water, calling us early is of particular importance, as costs can multiply rapidly if the water is not removed quickly.
Inspections And Inventory
In addition to critical water extraction services, we also typically send out an inspector to help identify the exact scope and type of damage in the home and begin creating an inventory of your belongings. This not only helps you to understand what has gone missing in your home but also appeases insurance providers and can even get you bonus insurance assistance. Additionally, if other risk factors exist or damage could be worse than is immediately apparent, inspectors can help to identify these issues and allow SERVPRO technicians more freedom and speed in their work.
