SERVPRO knows the severity of your Reading flood damage.

Because natural flood water can contain contaminants, including pesticides, bacteria, oil, and other harsh substances, you want to address the cleanup and recovery of your Reading home as quickly as possible. We have experienced cleaning technicians on our SERVPRO staff with training and continued education through both the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and in-house coursework. Their involvement in the recovery of flooded homes ensures the fastest possible restoration for our customers.

Learning the full scope of the flood damage to Reading homes is the initial priority of our project manager and crew chief before work even begins. As we are mindful of safe practices and the severity of the situation, we assess these damages as efficiently as possible to ensure that work can begin quickly. Several inches of standing water can place several immediate needs ahead of the controlled demolition and reconstruction the property now requires.

Extraction is a common starting point for our recovery specialists, as we have multiple devices capable of getting this immediate threat under control. In many home applications, we rely on portable sump pumps run off of our trailered generator due to a severance of electrical utilities to the property with standing water concerns. With the higher volume of floodwater removed, our technicians can get a full look at the affected areas for what materials must get gutted from the building, and where muck-out and rubbish removal services are necessary.

Removing mud, silt, and debris from the household can help to make controlled demolition more efficient. We have a full team of licensed professionals capable of general contracting needs, including the removal of drywall, hardwood, linoleum, and more. We are careful only to remove the affected portions of construction materials to make the reconstruction phase to follow more efficient and cost-effective for our customers.

Pre-demolition and reconstruction cleanup can help to both keep our technicians safe throughout the recovery process of potentially contaminated flood damage in your home, and also ensures that other phases of recovery go more quickly.
