Flooding In Your Coon Rapids Home Can Be A Category 3 Water Loss Situation
Why Flooding Is A Category 3 Water Loss For Coon Rapids Homes
When creeks and streams rise due to heavy rainfall and oversaturation throughout the Coon Rapids region, homes throughout our service area become susceptible to flooding. While this event can prove traumatic enough for many properties, deeming these emergencies as a Category 3 water loss incident requires a unique approach and precautionary measures for professional restoration technicians dispatched to your address following the emergency.
Many homeowners do not realize that flood damages incidents in Coon Rapids can get isolated into three different categories to both assess potential risk but also to determine the actions required to restore the home entirely. With rising bodies of water, the potential for contamination from bacteria, sewage, chemicals, and other substances is high. Natural flooding like this always gets deemed a Category 3, or black water, situation. Recovering your home after an incident like this requires a fast response from our trained SERVPRO professionals.
The first step for our team when we arrive at your home and inspect the property for damages is to set up our extraction equipment. We have various tools and machines that can offer fast extraction solutions to remove this contaminated water quickly from the exposed areas of your home. Once this water has gotten removed, we can assess the spread of the water damage and saturation for materials within the damaged areas to earmark structural elements for necessary demolition.
Materials like drywall and most flooring materials must get removed when exposed to floodwater in a Category 3 loss, and removing these damaged materials gets done carefully to not contaminate unaffected areas of your property throughout the demolition process.
While no homeowner wants to hear about demolition being a requirement to restore their home after a flood, it is the only way to ensure that bacteria and other contaminants do not persist and cause health effects or other concerns for those living in the house. If you experience flooding in your property, you can count on our SERVPRO of Coon Rapids / Central Anoka County for a fast response and effective mitigation to limit demolition and save you money.
