How Can Flood Water Damage Your Olathe Basement?

10/8/2021 (Permalink)

Flood water at door When flood damage takes over your home, call on our skilled experts for remediation assistance right away.

The Lowest Level Of Your Olathe Home Is a Target For Flood Damage Which Can Be Destructive To Exposed Elements. 

Flooding is more common in Olathe homes and businesses than you might believe. Surges from torrential rains or tornado damage can leave properties vulnerable to water penetration. Cleaning and restoring the basement level is an urgent need for damaged homes after flooding.

Extraction for Natural Floodwater 

Our technicians must start extraction work before the debris and solids making up the flood damage in Olathe homes can be addressed. Our professionals have powerful water removal tools from wet vacuums to truck-mount extractors for this purpose.

Thorough Inspection To Direct Restoration Work 

One of the ways that we can learn about the current conditions of exposed building materials, contents, and other concerns is through a complete inspection of the property. Our crew chief or qualified administration division meets with the customer and walks through the house to catalog loss and pre-existing conditions. This assessment helps discover:

  • Structural Compromise – We look for distinct damage to structural elements that could ultimately collapse or fail. We can offer controlled demolition services during the mitigation phase.
  • Potential Contamination – Natural flooding can welcome possible contaminants and pathogenic threats to the property from exposures to decaying organic matter, sewage, and other harmful substances. 
  • Moisture Damage – Lingering water damage can also have far-reaching effects on the entire property if not resolved as soon as possible. We use moisture detection equipment to achieve these results.

Natural disasters can be destructive and devastating for homes in their path. When flooding impacts area properties, many basements and lower portions of split-level homes suffer standing water and possible contamination. Our SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa and SERVPRO of Blue Valley teams understand the urgency of this situation and respond 24/7 to help when you need it most. Call us today at (913) 782-4693.
