Truck and Equipment We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. Call your local SERVPRO of Brandywine / Wilmington today.

Our Fast Responding SERVPRO Team Starts Emergency Services to Overcome Flood Damage in Brandywine Properties. 

Flooding can impact many areas of your home. The differences in these affected rooms and materials require our responding technicians to be prepared for various obstacles and hurdles in returning your property to preloss conditions. When our SERVPRO team first arrives, we can often focus on specific areas likely to have been initially impacted by infiltrating floodwater like:

  • Roof
  • Attic
  • Ceiling Materials
  • Foundation Masonry
  • Basement Building Materials

Temporary Repairs and Sealing

The penetration points of flood damage to Brandywine homes must be determined and sealed to prevent worsening the situation. Temporary construction solutions like board-up, tarping, and hydraulic cement application prevent further flood infiltration and allow our team to get started on other mitigating actions to protect the house. 

Removing Standing Water 

Our professionals must work quickly with various powerful extraction devices to manage surface water concerns and pooling. When floodwater invades your living space, several inches or more of this water can affect the flooring and related building materials. We combine vacuums and pumps to manage both standing water and debris threats. 

Addressing Contaminated Surfaces

Contamination can be another one of the major concerns when floodwater intrudes into your home. Because natural flooding must be treated with the same care and consideration as a blackwater event like sewage backup, exposed porous surfaces must often be removed where the contact occurred, and non-porous surfaces like concrete, tile, and stone get thoroughly cleaned with powerful disinfectant products and sporicidal solutions to prevent secondary concerns like mold development. 

Mitigating losses from flood damage can be one of the most necessary undertakings our SERVPRO of Brandywine / Wilmington team begins in area homes. The faster these emergency services get underway, the more we can protect the structure, its contents, and its occupants from harm. Flood restoration is possible 24/7 when you call (302) 762-8080.
