We Follow Industry Standards When Restoring Your Kalispel Home After Flood Damage Has Struck!
Restoration of Homes from Storm and Flood Damage in Kalispell
When the winds from intense storms in the Kalispell area knock down trees onto roofs, large tears can start letting in the rain. Soaking a house from the top down like this can leave floors soaking wet. Floors, walls, stairs, and even ceilings can hold water.
Stagnating water that sits inside your house can act very much like water related to flood damage in Kalispell. Storms that carry clean rain into our community wash dust and any other substances down through whichever path the water takes as it travels through your house.
Under cabinets, inside furniture, and many other locations can hold water that quickly changes from clean rain, which is considered Category 1, to dirty, or Category 3. Category 2, commonly called gray water, includes water from showers, washing dishes, and similar sources.
Category 2's in-between classification of water rarely causes unwanted health effects in people after coming into contact with it or materials saturated by it. When water can cause illness, SERVPRO follows industry standards as per the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), (where our employees receive their training) and we consider the water contaminated. We handle flood damage as if all of the water we encounter can cause unwanted health effects.
When rain enters into and floods the area near an open window or patio door, treating such an area does not always require the use of phenolics or quaternary compounds to disinfect the area. Our team can often get right into extracting the excess water and then setting up air movers and desiccant machines to absorb any remaining moisture.
Smaller areas where localized flooding exists can get dry faster when we build a containment system around the wet materials. Our training ensures that our customers always receive proper mitigation and restoration assistance when you need to protect your home.
When your house sustains flood damage during a storm, call SERVPRO of Flathead County, a locally owned and operated company by dialing (406) 300-0435. We serve the communities around Evergreen, Big Fork, and Whitefish, day or night, year-round.
