What to Do When a Storm Floods Your Omaha Home
Flooded Omaha Properties Rely on SERVPRO for Water Extraction and Cleanup
The potential of your home to sustain flood damage increases when the city that you live in is adjacent to a river. In the case of Omaha, seasonal storms and the spring thaw can bring flooding from the Missouri River. The flood can carry debris that adds to its destructive force, breaking down doors and windows allowing the water, mud, and debris to enter your home. Once inside, it can soak into the structure of your house and leave you with a significant problem. Fortunately, qualified and professional help is not far away.
Our IICRC-certified technicians are trained to handle the damage from the flood waters in your Omaha residence. After receiving your call, we can send our technicians to your home as soon as possible to inspect the damage. Unfortunately, flood water can contain pesticides, toxins, and sewage, and the area must be treated as biohazardous. The unclean water can damage your belongings and make porous materials such as carpet unsalvageable.
While the final decision on what to keep and what to discard rests with you, SERVPRO can help you sort through what is safe to keep and recommend what to throw away. We even provide a CCIS; a claims form for cataloging. Afterward, we can assist you with the process of filing a claim with your insurance company to make the entire situation more comfortable and less confusing. After completing the cleanup, our technicians can start the drying process.
Here at SERVPRO, we use a variety of advanced technologies to dry out your home. Using a combination of air movement, low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers, and desiccant dehumidifiers, we can ensure the ideal environment for evaporation. Creating the proper conditions in the affected areas is crucial to the drying process, as your property cannot be rid of the moisture without assistance.
When your home sustains flooding damage from a storm, do not hesitate. Call SERVPRO of Omaha Northwest at (402) 800-2134. As soon as possible, we can send our technicians to your home to help make you feel "Like it never even happened."
