Storm warning sign against gray sky Flooding can happen at any time of the year. SERVPRO's highly trained team is always available to restore your home.

Objectives for Storm Water Damage Restoration

After storms, your home can deal with various flooding and water intrusion. Overcoming these threats to your house means figuring out how to manage the concerns of floodwater and how it immediately affects the materials used to construct your residence. Our professionals perform specific objectives for post-flood cleanup and recovery as soon as we arrive at homes after disasters. 

Repairing Damaged Structure

Water and storm damage restoration for Plainfield homes and businesses is an essential component of post-flooding recovery. The first step is determining where the structure has been compromised to allow water penetration to the residence. Repairs might include the vulnerabilities of the basement, such as hydrostatic pressures forcing their way into this subterranean level of the house or water forcing through structural openings like the main doorway on the surface-level floor. Even temporarily, repairs and board-up prevent further infiltration of floodwater as drying gets underway.

Standing Water Removal 

SERVPRO professionals understand the importance of removing standing water, especially after flooding. The responding technicians prioritize eliminating pooling on the flooring surface and other structural elements. To achieve this, several tools from our inventory of recovery equipment are necessary. Based on the level of the damage and the location, we might need multiple extraction units to achieve the intended result, like:

  • Trash pumps 
  • Wet vacuums
  • Truck-mount extractors

Muck-Out Cleaning 

With the surface water mostly removed, SERVPRO professionals must quickly address another substantial obstacle: muck, mud, and debris. Muck-out cleaning uses shovels, vacuums, and other implements to eliminate surface debris buildup that could promote bug infestations, the growth of viral and bacterial pathogens, and the destruction of exposed structural elements in your home. 

Stormwater damage restoration in Plainfield can be a substantial undertaking that requires fast action and multiple types of water removal and cleaning services. Our SERVPRO of Hendricks County team is ready to help 24/7 when you call (317) 838-0100.
