Preventing Flood Damage Recurrences in Kansas City Homes

2/27/2022 (Permalink)

Storm damaged home When flood damage hits home, SERVPRO should be the first call. Storm and flood damage restoration is a job for us.

Structural repairs and preventative measures protect Kansas City properties against flood damage.

There are times when natural disasters like flooding are unavoidable for Kansas City homes. Despite the fast arrival of our SERVPRO team for mitigation, we must also have suitable solutions to repair structural damage and prevent flooding recurrences.

Fast Extraction and Mitigation

We understand the urgency of managing flood damage in Kansas City homes fast. Because floodwater can move so quickly through a household, extraction is one of the most vital services we can offer.

Repairing Damaged Roof Elements

The roof can also be a penetration point for direct precipitation, runoff, and flooding. While many roofs are installed to withstand years of abuse by the elements, some of nature’s fiercest storms far exceed the expectations and thresholds of even newly installed roofing systems. Some factors that contribute to flooding include:

  • Snowfall Weight
  • Ice Damming
  • Hail and Wind Damage

Standing Water Concerns in the Crawlspace

The crawlspace is a common area for flood damage as well. This designed opening beneath the main floor of your home can prevent direct flood damage but still must be cleaned and restored after natural disasters occur. Prolonged standing water in this area can result in mold development and other potential concerns.

Effective Flood Cleanup for Kansas City Homes

Once the damage has been identified and our SERVPRO team begins to formulate the needed actions to prevent recurrences, the rest of the technicians work to mitigate loss through effective and efficient water removal services. From the need for extraction that also manages solids to thorough drying with air movers, dehumidifiers, and portable electric heaters, we have production vehicles stocked with the needed equipment to control the mitigation and restoration needs rapidly.

While it is important to work quickly to manage and mitigate loss after flood damages impact your home or business, we must also prioritize the steps necessary to prevent additional damage moving forward. Flooding can recur multiple times when structural repairs are not completed, and provisions are not taken to identify penetration points appropriately. Our experienced SERVPRO of Kansas City Midtown team is ready to help 24/7 at (816) 895-8890.
