Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

The devastation of storms is not always a huge event such as a hurricane. Which is why we always are SERVPRO ready.

Floridians are no stranger to the devastating flooding caused in coastal and low-lying areas caused my tropical storms and hurricanes.  With our forecasting systems in place, we had ample warning to get out of harm’s way before landfall in most cases.  Unfortunately, there is a silent creeping storm that many in North Central Florida have experienced in the past, flooding from above average rainfall and thunderstorms in South Georgia and North Florida.

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac’s long-range forecast, Northern Florida and Southern Georgia can expect a much wetter April and May extending into the summer.  As many long-time residents along the local rivers such as the Santa Fe, Suwannee, and Ichetucknee have experienced in the past, this can be the precursor for long term flooding of low-lying inland areas especially along the rivers themselves.  This type of flooding can be devastating as it can take the rivers weeks to crest and fall again as your home sits soaking in the black water. 

Once the flooding subsides it is important to call SERVPRO who is always storm ready!  We will send our technicians in to remove flood affected material and stick around to put it all back “Like it never even happened.”  We know what it takes to not only clean up the mess left by receding flood waters, but to do it correctly so that your home is safe once again for your family.
