Intense Storms Can Cause Little Bay to Flood Your Durham Home

Whenever a city has formed alongside a body of water, such as a lake, a river, or even an ocean, flood damage is always a possibility for the residents who live there. A severe storm can cause the water levels to rise and spread, hitting any homes who live along the shore. On the case of your home overlooking Little Bay, a severe rainstorm caused water levels to rise just enough to flood the entryway of your home. The tile floor, the base of the walls, and the brief flight of stairs that lifts the main floor away from the ground have all been exposed to stagnant water.

If the flood damage in your Durham home is ignored for too long, it can have severe consequences for the longevity of your home. It only takes three days for microbial growth to begin when your home has been exposed to water damage. As the water sits, mold damage can begin to form. Not only does the problem in your house become even more expensive as you leave it, but mold damage can cause health effects in whoever lives inside. The best way the deal with the flood damage inside of your home is to reach out for help as soon as possible.

SERVPRO firmly believes in arriving at your home as soon as possible. We do not like to leave things waiting, as it only allows the problem to grow and get worse. Not to mention, SERVPRO understands how stressful these kinds of situations can be on you as a homeowner. Getting there as swiftly as possible allows us to jump right into the remediation and gives it a better chance to go as smoothly as possible.

At SERVPRO, we always use advanced technology whenever we go to a job. To clean up the standing water in your entryway, we can use pieces of equipment such as portable pumps and wet/dry vacuums. Both of these devices allow us to extract water from your home as quickly as possible. However, merely removing the water is not enough. Our SERVPRO IICRC-techs must also remove any moisture lingering inside of the floor or the walls. SERVPRO can use drying flood mats and dehumidifiers in conjunction with air movers and ventilation fans to encourage the moisture lingering inside of your home to evaporate.

If a sudden storm causes flood damage inside of your home, always get help as soon as you can. Get in touch with SERVPRO of Durham by dialing (603) 868-3343. We are always ready to send a team of technicians to your home.
