Why SERVPRO Is The Best Choice To Remediate Wrightsville Beach Flood Damage

Wrightsville Beach is a beautiful place for life on the water. That same oceanside location also makes it vulnerable to flooding from even minor storms. When that happens, homeowners need a fast response to dry and clean their residence to prevent permanent damage and high restoration costs.

So why choose SERVPRO for flood damage in your Wrightsville Beach home? Our office maintains a 24/7 service, including all major holidays, to help return your home to its pre-flood condition as quickly as possible.

The best method for eliminating or reducing flood damage risk is to remove as much water as possible. That means getting in immediately with pumps and extractors. Removal stops everything in the home from absorbing more water, which means that our restoration team can preserve more structural property like drywall panels and wood trim. It also helps team members restore more personal property like bookcases, dressers, and other wood furniture.

Getting rid of the standing water is not always enough, however. SERVPRO restoration technicians need to quickly dry everything to prevent the water already absorbed from causing permanent damage. That means drying every affected surface in a careful manner that increases natural evaporation while also preventing exposed wood from cracking and splitting due to the absorbed water.

Not everything can be dried and preserved though. Floodwater contains outside contaminants like dirt, fertilizers, and other chemicals used in lawn care. It can also carry waste from backed-up sewers if the flood damage overwhelmed them. Because of that, our teams cannot guarantee the cleanliness of rugs and carpets. After removing the water to make moving them easier, team members dispose of them immediately.

As team members perform these tasks, others work to make the air inside the home more comfortable. High humidity leaves many residents sticky and otherwise uncomfortable. Air saturated with moisture also puts a home at continued risk for furniture damage and can even lead to mold spores expanding and growing through the structure.

After drying everything to its proper state, technicians clean them using an extensive product inventory. That includes a mild cleaner for drywall and wood paneling to powerful anti-fungal agents on surfaces in the bathrooms and kitchen.

For SERVPRO of New Hanover, this is how we support our community and surrounding areas like Castle Hayne, Kure Beach, and Wilmington. If you need help after a storm floods your home, call (910) 762-8180 today. We are here for you.
