When a storm hits the area hard, SERVPRO of Salem West is on high alert. Heavy rainfall and high winds often means water intrusion into businesses and homes, and board ups to windows and structures due to wind damage causation.
It doesn’t always happen that way, but SERVPRO prides itself on being as prepared as possible for whatever may come during a storm. Storm water that intrudes a house, through the roof, the basement, the walls, or other points of entry, is labeled as category 3 water (Black Water) this is because there is no traceable way to tell what the water has ran through before it enters a place of business, or a personal home. This being the case, our technicians treat storm losses with care and increased safety measures.
Many home owners and business owners don’t know the dangers of storm water…especially when it comes to flooding. Storm water in cities and heavily populated areas is often referred to as “Polluted Runoff” this term is in reference to the water picking up any pollutants along it’s pathway. Whether the water ran through a construction site, picked up fertilizers from the ground, Oil and Anti-Freeze from cars, or bacteria from pet wastes and failing septic systems, it can carry and transport all sorts of pollutants directly into a home or business.
So if you find your space affected by a recent storm, you can have faith that SERVPRO of Salem West will take the necessary precautions and measures to restore it to a safe and clean environment. SERVPRO of Salem West is here to serve the community whether it be a flooded house from a storm, or a flooded house from a dishwasher. Call SERVPRO of Salem West. We Are Faster To Any Disaster!
