To Perform Stormwater Removal in Your Raleigh Home, Contact Certified Restorers Like SERVPRO Immediately

Stormwater can inflict substantial damage to your home within 24 to 72 hours. Warping of your timber floor, electrical risks, and lingering odors are all possibilities. It is essential to call SERVPRO right away to repair your home.

Property owners may be motivated to perform stormwater removal in their Raleigh homes themselves to avoid spending on professional services. However, without the necessary expertise, and advanced equipment and tools, that move may lead to more damage than expected, including but not limited to:

  • Compromised structural integrity
  • Mold growth
  • Contaminated drinking water
  • Depreciated home value
  • Compromised structural integrity

Moisture in your flooded house can cause wood to rot and weaken its ability to hold up your home's weight. Our SERVPRO water restoration technicians (WRT) can dry affected surfaces thoroughly through ventilation and dehumidification.

Mold growth 

Mold releases harmful spores, which can cause health issues. Our SERVPRO professionals have a variety of chemicals that can remediate mold effectively and safely. For instance, we can use vanquish, a disinfectant that kills 99 percent of the germs it contacts. We can dry your home thoroughly to prevent mold infestation.

Depreciated home value

A flood can make your home less valuable by creating hazardous living conditions. Our SERVPRO team can reduce the loss by properly cleaning and drying out your home. Our specialists can use an indirect fired furnace to dry the affected building materials, based on the scope of the water damage. A heat exchanger is used in the apparatus. It warms the dry outside air before introducing it into the drying zone. The equipment absorbs the water that has evaporated from moist items, raising the air's humidity ratio.

Do not allow storm damage to affect your ability to enjoy your home's comfort. Contact SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex at (919) 615-1160 for efficient restoration services. We can make the storm damage seem, "Like it never even happened."
