House Flooding Dauphin County Pa

Have Moisture Removed From a Flooded Home

If you live in an area where a flood occurs, then it is likely that your home is damaged from filthy water. When house flooding occurs, your home is filled with water that contains pathogens. Cleaning up this dirty water requires using specialized tools and cleansers to remove the moisture along with the pathogens that can lead to illnesses. Fortunately, ServiceMaster in city name, state has water extraction and scrubbing machines to remove the moisture and debris from walls, floors and ceilings. In order to prevent secondary damage to your home from mold growth and mildew odor, our company recommends contacting our technicians as quickly as possible.

Our Technicians Can Extract Moisture From Carpets and Walls

When a house is flooded, the water enters along the foundation and doorways before it floats across the floor. If your home has wall-to-wall carpets, then the fibers will soak up the water. When your home’s carpets are wet for several hours, the fibers begin to decompose. The water that enters your home will also seep underneath the baseboards before creeping up into the walls to damage insulation layers and electrical wiring. However, with fast remediation, a technician from ServiceMaster can suction the moisture from your home’s carpets with an extraction machine.

We Install Circulating Fans and Dehumidifiers

In addition to using extraction machines, our technicians will install circulating fans that are designed to dry surfaces such as drywall, wood flooring and ductwork. If your home is developing a high humidity level, then we also use dehumidifier systems to remove moisture from the air. At ServiceMaster, we have employees available to work on a 24-hour basis to remove all of the moisture from surfaces before the metal materials begin to rust or wood cabinets begin to warp. When there are materials in your home that are beyond repair, we can remove the items for safe disposal at an off-site location according to local regulations.

Eliminate Foul Odors With Specialized Deodorizers

After all of the moisture is removed from your flooded home, ServiceMaster technicians will also apply chemicals to surfaces to eliminate viruses, bacteria and mold spores. To prevent foul odors such as mildew from developing, we can use industrial-strength deodorizers on walls, cabinets and floors. When your home is flooded, you need to have the contaminated water removed to prevent additional damage to the structure.
