Hazardous Conditions Can Develop Rapidly After A Disaster In Raleigh

Hazardous conditions can develop rapidly after disasters strike Raleigh homes, making it wise to trust the experience and cutting-edge equipment of professional restorers.

From Cary to Raleigh, we have helped many of our friends and neighbors through the challenging experiences the disasters like fire and water losses can present. Even homes and businesses damaged by hurricanes over the past decade have benefited from the prompt response and expertise of our SERVPRO team. With a full-service general contracting division of our roster, we can offer a comprehensive solution for restoration and recovery, beginning with emergency services and repairs through mitigation and build back. Our commitment to our customers has helped to elevate our reputation in the area to be considered among the top franchises in the country, along with many of our sister franchises within our large loss recovery network.


One of the primary callouts that our team receives throughout the year our water loss incidents. The frequency that these situations occur in Raleigh and surrounding areas has encouraged our professionals to leave trailers and production vehicles stocked with our recovery tools to provide a fast rollout when disasters strike. This preparedness ensures that we reach your home within hours of the first notice of loss in most situations so that mitigation Efforts can begin as soon as possible.

Protecting Your Belongings After a Water Loss

Your personal belongings often suffer the worst from water loss incidents because you cannot remove these items from the damaged areas quickly enough during an emergency. Part of the mitigation and emergency services that our SERVPRO team provides Raleigh homes and businesses focuses on protecting your personal belongings, possessions, and other vital items that could be in the path of migrating loss effects. We have multiple solutions for preserving these belongings. In some situations, relocation on-site can be sufficient, while in others, we must remove the items altogether and provide focused cleaning and restoration at our facility.

Extraction and Drying Solutions

The management of standing water and the drying of your Raleigh home is critical in returning the property to its preloss condition. Drying is ineffective until standing water and surface moisture concerns have been appropriately addressed with extraction tools. While air movers and dehumidifiers can be capable for evaporative drying solutions, water removal must first take place with numerous pieces of equipment in our inventory, including:

    •    Submersible Pumps
    •    Wet Vacuums
    •    Carpet Wands
    •    Light Wands
    •    Floor Mat Drying Systems


Fires are among the few emergencies where most homeowners understand that cleaning and restoration should get completed by competent and qualified restoration professionals. This is accentuated by the insurance provider's demands, given that many fire loss incidents get covered by Raleigh homeowners' insurance policies. As a preferred vendor for many of these companies, we understand their needs in the documentation and cataloging damage to ensure as few delays in starting the restoration.

What is the Pack-Out Process?

Much like water loss situations, we focus heavily on content management when our team arrives for fire restoration in Raleigh and Apex homes. Many of the damaged belongings in the path of moving fire loss effects must get removed from the house and transported to our SERVPRO facility for focus cleaning and restoration processes. In our care, damaged personal belongings can expect:

    •    Surface Cleaning
    •    Soot Removal
    •    Deodorization
    •    Drying

Mitigation and Restoration Solutions for Fire-Damaged Homes

Recovering your fire damaged property can happen in multiple stages, and much of the early tasks involve providing a safe environment for our professionals to work in. This focus allows for efforts such as air quality control with air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators as well as the removal of soot and smoke residue from walls, ceilings, and floors within your Raleigh property.


We offer a free service to area businesses called the Emergency READY Profile Plan (ERP) that can help determine the layout of structures, the location of essential elements like shutoffs and storage, and the business priorities when disasters strike. By providing our SERVPRO team with this information before emergencies occur, we can more efficiently reach your property and began administering the appropriate mitigation tactics safely.

When Do Cleaning and Restoration Occur?

It can be challenging to see your Raleigh business in disarray after a fire or water loss incident, especially if it has forced your doors closed. Cleaning and restoration are often the vital steps to get these doors open again, and this happens as soon as mitigation and other emergency services have completed. In many ways, this involves both our contractors and our restoration professionals working simultaneously.

Getting Your Business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned

A clean and safe work environment has never been a more pressing need throughout Raleigh and other cities that we serve. Our latest defensive cleaning program (Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned) ensures that your business gets the top products, practices, and equipment available to our team to provide a sanitary space for your staff. This program focuses on surface cleaning and applying disinfection products to communal areas, heavily touched objects and spaces, and other points that could be hotspots for the transference of viral pathogens and bacterial microbes.


Substantial storm systems can have disastrous effects on Raleigh homes and businesses, especially after severe weather events like hurricanes or tropical storms. As a coastal state, North Carolina can see many damaging systems coming off the Atlantic Ocean. Despite our service area being inland, we can still experience many of the same destructive hurricanes and storm events that make landfall on our coasts.

What Steps Prevent Flooding from Getting Worse?

Acting quickly after structural damages occur, or in situations where flooding has become a widespread threat for communities, ensures that we can help Raleigh homes through damaging conditions. One of the most effective routes to prevent flooding from getting out of control is implementing extraction solutions as soon as possible. Many of these water removal tools that our professionals use includes:

    •    Submersible Pumps
    •    Trash Pumps
    •    Truck-Mount Pumps
    •    Wet Vacuums

Does SERVPRO Rebuild?

One of the distinct advantages of choosing our team over other restoration companies is the inclusion of general contracting professionals on our roster. We offer a comprehensive and full-service solution after storm losses, including full-scale build back when necessary in Raleigh homes.

Disasters can strike quickly, but our SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex team can respond fast to help. Give us a call anytime at (919) 615-1160.
