Storm Damage Do You Have Flood Damage in Your Tampa Home From a Recent Storm? SERVPRO'S vans are stocked with state-of-the-art equipment to remove water and dry out your home.

Sudden Storms Can Leave You with Flood Damage in Your Tampa Home

Unexpected changes in the weather around Tampa can cause residents great inconvenience when outdoor activities get doused with showers. Your home can also suffer when rainfall causes water to flow into your home and flood your property. Houses close to the ongoing construction of buildings, roadways, or other structures can experience sudden and unexpected flooding. Any changes in the terrain, including minor ones, can send floodwater directly into your property and quickly overtake your residence. 

At SERVPRO, we train our specialists in various fields and situations to prepare them for mitigation work homes after sustaining flood damage in Tampa. Floodwater that travels overland might not contain as many microbes as water from a stream or lake, but we still consider this water as highly contaminated. Mitigation of flooding from outside sources must address the contamination deposited in the house. 

Floors require special care and mitigation so their damage remains manageable, and this requires the removal of many types of flooring and fast drying out of the underlying structure. Replacing ruined carpet or other flooring types can only happen once we complete the task of drying the floor. We follow the removal of the previous flooring with heated drying mats. 

Removal of lower sections of the wall makes it possible to air out the entire home from the influx of water. Getting support beams and wooden studs completely dry before the rebuilding of walls takes place protects them from structural changes like warping or twisting, and also protects them from microbial infestation and growth. 

Throughout your property, we use moisture meters to ensure complete and consistent drying occurs. SERVPRO specialists want your home to once again look just “Like it never even happened.” helping your family recover even faster. 

SERVPRO of West Tampa wants to let you know we are here for you, and that we understand your concerns over how flood damage can affect your family and your home. Call us at (813) 855-0888, and we can help get things back under control for you.
