Flood Damage Safety during Wichita Restoration
If your Wichita property floods you need to call SERVPRO of Northeast Wichita to start restoration work as soon as possible. The quicker we get out to your property the higher the chance that we will be able to restore and save more elements of the damage. Of course, when things go wrong safety needs to be everyone’s top concern and our highly trained restoration technicians are no different.
If electrical sockets were submerged, they need to be replaced. Even if they were only submerged for a short time this will need to be done. If the electrical sockets have stayed submerged it is unsafe to get into the water even if your power is out. It is generally recommended not to go into the water until the electrical meter has been removed from its socket. This ensures that the home is disconnected from the grid.
Another safety issue with storm floods is the presence of various contaminants. Bacteria, viruses, mold, even feces can hitch a free ride onto the water coming into your home. That level of soil is why it is designated as category 2 water by our industry. Between our process of extraction and the application of an EPA registered disinfectant our technicians minimize the risk of pathogens during the restoration process. Since the air movers we set can aerosolize any remaining contaminants when there are particular health concerns, or a customer requests it we also can place a HEPA grade air filtration device to further protect our customers.
If you experience any storm flooding or are concerned about it give us a call today at (316) 655-6094 and we would be happy to help.
