Storm Damage In West Tampa

4/20/2020 (Permalink)

Palm Trees Are Shown Blowing In The Wind The trained, certified, professional team members at SERVPRO of West Tampa know how flood damage from hurricanes can affect our community.

Tampa is quite often in the path of hurricanes and homes and businesses suffer thousands of dollars in damage. A large percentage of this damage is related to the flooding inherent in such severe weather systems. A hurricane leaving an area does not guarantee that the crisis poses no further problems for homeowners. It only means that cleanup efforts can begin.


 
When a hurricane hits the area, flood damage in Tampa is almost impossible to avoid. While flooding continues to affect an area, the costs of mitigating the damage increases. When we arrive, pumping out the flooded floors of your home becomes a priority. Eliminating any additional moisture follows, with moisture levels monitored as the work continues. This includes the humidity in the air inside your home.
 
Left without a place to call home, Floridians need to restore their homes quickly. Completion of necessary repairs not only re-establishes 'home' but it also decreases the risk of secondary types of damage.

After a hurricane, the air outside can remain saturated for a long time. Instead of opening doors and windows to permit faster evaporation rates, we close these openings. Doing so creates an enclosed space that can become drier faster because of the increased control maintained over the indoor environment. With little humidity able to enter, a state of dryness is easier to obtain.
 
Soaked materials in a home become swollen and warped. Such materials no longer function as they should, even once dry again. The changes in the physical appearance alone can render many materials unusable. While the experts in restoration at SERVPRO of West Tampa always save as much as possible during each job, some materials can pose risks if salvaged and reused or never removed and left intact. We put our expansive knowledge to work for you, so your family is protected in the future after the work is done and long after.
