SERVPRO Provides Fast Emergency Flood Water Removal and Restoration


Any location can experience problems with bad weather, and Atlanta residents know that the area's landscape affects our climate in both
good and bad ways. When severe weather damages a home or other property, acting quick can help to reduce related damages.

For Atlanta homeowners, flood damage can eclipse almost any other disaster endured by a family. Not only can floods happen instantaneously, but responding must also happen just as rapidly. A delayed reaction can allow countless other problematic situations to
develop. These include mold and mildew growth, secondary water damage, wood rot of structural beams, and damage to wiring, personal belongings, and electronic appliances.

Our Green Fleet is Faster To Any Size Disaster, including flooding catastrophes. After receiving a call, our team leaves almost immediately to ensure we lose no time in starting the mitigation work your property requires. We keep our equipment in excellent shape and always ready.

Because floods carry harmful and injurious items with it, we recommend that you always keep contact with the water and any saturated materials to a minimum. Hazards that did not exist inside your home before the flood can also develop. Electrical hazards and broken portions of trim can remain hidden until after an injury occurs. Because of these hazards, our technicians wear personal protection equipment (PPE). Our other equipment centers on mitigating the flood's havoc.

Pumping happens quickly, and we follow this up with additional extraction methods. Making sure that your home becomes dry swiftly means we can also begin checking for damage to areas of your home and removing those areas that require restoration. We do our best to keep this minimized, as reparative work carries a smaller financial burden, gets completed much faster, and eliminates the need to match replacement materials.

Other aspects of flood damage mitigation that affected homeowners can expect include removal and disposal of ruined foodstuffs. Getting
these out of the home quickly reduces the likelihood of rodents and other vermin becoming attracted to your home. Cleaning the rest of
your kitchen protects your family's health upon your return.

The professional technicians at SERVPRO of Southwest Cobb / Cascade receive IICRC certifications in fields related to the mitigation of flood damage. Our 24-hour service line can be contacted at (770) 739-2355 whenever flooding occurs in the Cascade Heights, Austell,
Furniture City and surrounding areas.
