SERVPRO Techniques for Effective Flood Water Removal in Tarpon Springs Homes

Heavy rains are a given in this part of Florida and flash flooding is a valid concern for homeowners in Tarpon Springs. The flood water removal process needs to begin as quickly as possible to mitigate damage when it enters your home. That is why you can rely on us to schedule service within one hour, and we can be on site within four hours after your initial call.

Flood water in Tarpon Springs is never handled as a clean water situation; it is grey water at best and often black water due to contaminants such as sewage or chemicals and debris picked up along the way. SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians are experts in applied structural drying, odor control and restoration techniques to keep losses from water damage to a minimum.

We utilize powerful truck mounted pumps and gas powered submersible extractors to pull the water out of the home as quickly as possible. In-place drying is not applicable for carpeting and padding that has been submerged by gray or black water. In some cases, in-plant drying can be done, but often the carpet and padding require replacement due to contaminants. If the flood water was not deep in the home, furniture could dry on raised blocks.

SERVPRO technicians set up powerful air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the subflooring and to speed drying of walls, weep holes can be drilled to allow the air flow to reach behind the drywall and effectively dry the building materials. Along with drying the structure, the technicians want to eliminate conditions that are conducive to mold growth. Along with lowered humidity and dry surfaces, we use powerful antifungal cleaners to thoroughly wipe down areas affected by water to inhibit mold growth and stop the problem before it starts.

When you call SERVPRO of Tarpon at (727) 934-5555, our certified technicians can begin the process of flood water removal by asking questions about your unique situation to determine what type of equipment we need to bring to neutralize the water damage in your home. We are available 24/7 to quickly and efficiently make your loss “Like it never even happened."
