Did the Recent Storms Cause Flooding in Your Port Orange Home?

High winds and heavy rains can cause structural damage and allow water to enter your home.

Structural Compromise that Results in Flooded Port Orange Homes

Residents of the Port Orange area can attest that severe weather systems are par for the course. Throughout every season of the year, storm systems can sweep across the state or slam in from the Atlantic Coast. These disasters can significantly damage structures throughout the area, removing portions of roofs, siding, knocking over trees and utility poles, and breaking windows of the house. Apart from this destruction to the property from the outside, the newly exposed vulnerabilities can allow for more dangerous effects like flooding to occur. 

Many homeowners cannot fully appreciate the destructive capacity of flood damage until it occurs in their Port Orange residence. Our mission as SERVPRO professionals is to provide every customer with effective mitigation and recovery solutions, beginning with our fast response to these emergencies in your time of trouble. We arrive with the full measure of restorative equipment and recovery tools designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of cleanup for your damaged property. 

Structural compromise is the first obstacle that our professionals must overcome when we first arrive. We have a full-service division of contractors that can help with emergency board up and tarping services. Both of these options can reduce the penetration of flood water into damaged areas of your home while protecting the house from further elemental damages in other ways as well. Once the storm has passed, our licensed contractors can work to reconstruct the compromised portions fully. 

Preventing further structural compromise within the home is also an important task that we do. We must assess the full scope of the damage using probing and non-probative moisture readers and detectors. These tools determine the amount of moisture and dampness trapped in inaccessible areas and hard-to-reach locations. In many situations, and based on severity, it is possible to address saturated areas and materials without making a single demolition cut. 

Flooding is a traumatic situation for homeowners, and that is why our SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange team works to restore its effects quickly. Contact us anytime you need us at (386) 788-0358.
