Flash Flood Damage Can Be Devastating. SERVPRO Can Secure and Restore your Home in Slidell.

Are move-outs necessary following flash flooding?
When flash flooding affects your Slidell home, there is a strong chance of harmful substances being brought in with floodwaters. Biohazardous waste could include dirt, sewage, debris, and viruses. These are commonly associated with flash floods because the water travels several miles, picking up biohazardous substances along the way. If your home is unsafe, your insurance provider may recommend that you temporarily relocate. SERVPRO can transport your possessions from the house to a separate storage facility. Here, we can perform restoration work, including ultrasonic and immersion cleaning, to ensure that your possessions return to a preloss condition.

How are items packed out during flood damage move-outs?
- Crew chiefs carefully inspect and inventory your possessions
- Removal vans pack up items with extra-care taken by using blankets or soft wrap for fragile items
- Once your home is restored, technicians can return possessions to their original rooms

Is my home secure during a temporary relocation from flooding?
It is understandable to be worried about the effects of flood damage in your Slidell home. Especially when a move out has taken place at short notice. Our technicians can secure the structure of your home and prep it for restoration. These duties could include boarding up broken entryways or windows to prevent looting. We can also drain the property, clean and deodorize to provide a safe working space for restoration work to begin. Finally, technical aspects like providing power, lighting, and warning signage can assist workers in the property to allow for extensive restoration.

What happens to a flooded property during restoration?
- Valuable items are removed for safe storage
- Power is restored, and the property is drained of standing water
- A drying procedure is set up during the restoration phase
