Storms Brew Up The Need For Water Removal In Omaha
Storms Brew Up The Need For Water Removal
Heavy rains, wind, hail, and the potential for tornadic activity is a typical weather forecast in Omaha during the spring and early summer. If your home is in the path of this kind of severe precipitation mix, prepare for the possibility that water incursion can place your home at risk of significant and continuing damage. Professional equipment and technicians can reduce the threat quickly.
After a storm ravages Omaha, some homeowners discover they have a pressing need for water removal services. When several inches of rainfall in a short period, water can find its way to invade the lower levels of your residence. The saturated soil around your foundation can force water up through gaps and cracks, and if wind or hail damages siding, windows, or roofs more rain can pour inside. This scenario is the definition of an emergency; the kind we are continually ready to resolve.
Once you have stopped the intrusion of additional moisture, removal of the water already saturating the interior is first on our agenda. Standing water must be removed fast, and it can hide in many spaces in your basement, foundation, or crawl space. SERVPRO crews are experts in pumping and extracting the water you see, and detectives when it comes to locating the water that collects in difficult to reach spaces. We use moisture meters and infrared scanners to pinpoint where caches of water can linger. Our training prepares us with strategies to remove all traces, including drilling holes in mortar joints or removing selected areas of paneling or drywall.
Insistence upon speedy removal on both your part and ours helps reduce the likelihood of microbial growth. Quick removal and drying will also help to reduce the ongoing creep and saturation that happen when standing water is allowed to remain for an extended period.
SERVPRO of Omaha Northwest prides itself on a fast response to your water disaster. Call (402) 800-2134 immediately to ensure our crews are on site as soon as possible, removing the water before permanent damage can happen.
