Proper Cleanup After Flood Damage In Grand Junction

After a flooding incident, one of the significant issues property owners deal with is how to clean up. The floodwaters dump all kinds of waste including silt, mud, raw sewage and even industrial waste into the areas they reach. You need to remove such wastes thoroughly and fast to return your home to its preloss state. If your Grand Junction home is affected, we can offer professional restoration services shouldering the burden that you would face working on your own.

Different aspects of flood damage in Grand Junction determine the level of cleanup needed to restore the property entirely. These might include how high the water rises and how far the property is from the origination point of the floodwaters. When floodwater rises to a higher level, it affects more contents in the house, not just those on the floor, while waters originating from a long distance collect more debris. Our SERVPRO technicians have different equipment to deal with all sorts of debris. For instance, we use shovels to remove silt while high-pressure washers help us deal with mud and sewage.

The materials affected by the floodwaters determine the necessary cleaning steps. Because it is hard to eliminate all contaminants from porous materials, the advisable step is to remove them. Carpets, insulation, and furniture items made from particleboard fall under such porous category that requires removal. Our SERVPRO technicians do the removal in a way that does not cause unnecessary damages to the structure. We also ensure proper disposal of the materials removed.

Any non-porous materials affected by floodwaters require thorough cleaning. By combining pressure washing, agitation and use of professional cleaning products, our SERVPRO can deal with any form of soiling after flooding “Like it never even happened.”

Thorough drying is also part of cleanup because leaving excess moisture in the affected property can cause bad odors among other issues. We first set a drying goal, which determines the number of air movers, and dehumidifiers that we need to dry the property thoroughly and fast enough because taking long creates chances for the other problems to develop.

Your flood-damaged property might look nothing like you know it, but proper cleaning restores it. Call SERVPRO of Grand Junction at (970) 241-8181 for assistance. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
