If Significant, Consistent Rainfall Affects Everett, you may be able to Claim Flood Damage Insurance
SERVPRO is Here to Help this Community Overcome Flooding and Return your Everett Home to a Pre-loss Condition
Does my Flood insurance include structural repair?
Insurance policies typically cover both contents and structure, providing that harm occurs as a direct result of flood damage to your Everett home. Pre-existing damages to the home are not under insurance coverage. But, even with insurance, structural issues can be drawn-out and stressful. SERVPRO can help to mitigate structural losses by performing emergency water removal using pumps and extraction equipment. In our experience, controlling losses is better than relying on insurance as it allows you to return to your home sooner rather than later.
How can you save content from a flooded property?
• Removing contents from floodwaters onto upper levels
• Establishing correct drying protocol and dehumidification for wet contents
• Blocking heavier furniture to put it out of harm's way until removal of standing water
Do floodwaters permanently harm clothes?
Textiles absorb moisture quickly, which, in flood, can include contaminants like raw sewage or mold. Most textiles respond well to mechanical cleaning restoration and can make a full recovery. Mechanical cleaning holds items in suspension while water jets move around the item providing concentrated cleaning. SERVPRO technicians can use Esporta washing machines to remove up to 99% of soiling from clothes and other fabrics to ensure that you do not need to seek a replacement.
Can you dry contents and structure at the same time?
It can be more time-efficient to leave larger contents like furnishings in place while drying the structure. When drying an entire structure, technicians create supply and return outlets for equipment sealing the rest of the property. Using a larger exterior dehumidifier, we can rapidly dry a property without needing to return or re-position our equipment. Dehumidification can help to draw moisture out of both solid structure and soft furnishings.
