Can My Basement Contents Be Recovered After Storm Flooding In Columbia Falls?
Immediate Water Removal is Critical to Preventing Further Damage to Your Columbia Falls Home and the Content
If your Columbia Falls basement has experienced flooding from a storm SERVPRO’s Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), technicians can handle the problem with ease. The contents will be cleaned, restored, and treated with care.
What processes are involved in content restoration?
Flood damage in Columbia Falls can cause problems not only to the structure but also to your belongings. Things such as clothing, furniture, tools, and holiday treasures get put in the basement. Water removal is the first line of defense before content cleanup. Here are some of the methods we use to “Like it never even happened.”
• Pretesting – this determines what gets restored to pre-flood condition
• Abrasive Cleaning – “agitates” the surface to get results
• Dry Cleaning – used to pre-clean or to remove light residues
• Foam Cleaning – used if upholstery fabrics would bleed or shrink if cleaned
• Immersion Cleaning - cleaning product is used in a bath in which contents get dipped
• Spray & Wipe – used on items that need a gentler treatment
• Wet Cleaning – used to deal with moderate to heavy residue
SERVPRO Can Restore More Than You Think
