SERVPRO Mitigates Water Damage After a Storm

 SERVPRO of North Tampa / Magdalene is dedicated to helping local homeowners with storm damage with speed and precision.

Florida homeowners are no stranger to hurricanes and the damage that they can do to homes and communities. Some liken the water damage from a hurricane to that of a flood from a typical rainstorm, but the former is so much worse.

Flood damage in Tampa, Florida, results from a hurricane bringing water and salt from the ocean. Brackish water is hazardous, and it has the potential to create havoc on your home's structure and your possessions. Hurricane flood damage is severe and needs action immediately.

When salt comes into contact with wire insulation, metals, concrete, zinc, and other materials commonly used in homes, it's corrosive. Also, saltwater conducts its charge that increases the likelihood of power outages and electrical shock. A home damaged by saltwater decomposes faster if left sitting. The foundation, walls, flooring, and decorative stone and brick of your home will start to break down and be costly to repair the longer the problem persists.

Contacting experienced professionals, such as our team at SERVPRO of North Tampa / Magdalene, is key to protecting your home after a hurricane. It isn't easy removing saltwater from home; First, washing with freshwater before pumping can start. As time ticks before repairs commence, your home is vulnerable to water damage.
