Why SERVPRO Manages Renovation Better After Flood Damage Incidents in Amherst

A flooding incident in Amherst can leave widespread damages in your property, necessitating renovation. Following correct approaches, when carrying out such an exercise, helps ensure the right outcome. You can involve a professional like SERVPRO because we have extensive experience rebuilding flood damage loss sites.

Cleaning the Property Thoroughly

One outcome of flood damage incidents in Amherst is the soiling of surfaces and materials. The renovation process undertaken must, therefore, leave your home cleaned to sanitary levels. Our SERVPRO technicians take different steps, including using detergents, disinfectants, and antimicrobial agents, to remove contaminants. We even have specially formulated cleaning solutions, which are readily biodegradable, and leave minimal scent helping deal with both soiling and contaminants. We use different approaches to remove stains, including using oxidizing or reducing bleaches. We also start stain removal before the affected fabrics dry to prevent the setting of stains, which would complicate the process.

Dealing with Deteriorated Materials

Deterioration of materials due to water intrusion is another common problem that necessitates the renovation of the affected property. The level of deterioration depends on the types of materials in the affected areas, and the period water sits in the structure. Water damage becomes worse; the longer water sits in a property. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate and remove unsalvageable materials such as carpets, drywall, and insulation. Carpets delaminate or absorb high amounts of contaminants, while drywall becomes soggy and loses structural integrity necessitating such replacement.

Managing Smells

A flood-damaged home can have unpleasant smells from wastes or deteriorating materials. A complete renovation should leave the place smelling and looking clean. Our SERVPRO technicians perform elaborate deodorization processes depending on the types of sources of smells established. Spraying deodorizers directly in affected areas helps neutralize malodors. We can also use wet fogging, among other procedures, to eliminate the odors.

The damage left in your Northampton, Granby, or Easthampton property after flooding might seem too widespread to fix. Call SERVPRO of Hampshire County any time at (413) 324-1300 to help. We aim to remove traces of the loss, “Like it never even happened.”
