Flooding can result in extensive water damage and it is one of the most debilitating disasters that can happen in your home. Although water is deemed one of our primary needs, it can also function as a destructive force that presents serious threats to your property and life. Water damage can take on many forms, and you will always need a professional to determine accurately the extent of the water damage to your property. For this reason, it is important and advantageous for homeowners affected by flooding to obtain professional flood restoration services. To learn more about flood services and how SERVPRO’s specialists can assist you, refer to the following guide:

Preventing Mold and Mildew Growth
As SERVPRO technicians know, one of the most profound problems that can result from flood damage is the growth and proliferation of mold. Mold can take hold within 48 to 72 hours after your home is flooded and materials are soaked. Mold thrives in humid, damp conditions that the Florida climate provides, and therefore homes that have been subjected to flooding can quickly become a breeding ground for the fungus. Flood restoration specialists are effective in eradicating mold issues by offering detail-oriented, results-centered cleanup services.

Preventing Damage to Electrical Systems
In addition to preventing mold growth, flood restoration specialists can help prevent extensive damage to your home's electrical systems. Unfortunately, electrical systems exposed to water can begin to malfunction, which can lead to electrocution. Additionally, electrical systems that have been flooded can generate house fires.
