Atlanta is not prone to flash flooding, but when heavy rainfall occurs, you know that SERVPRO will be there to save your Atlanta property. The last big flood that occurred in Atlanta was in September 2009.

The Atlanta Flood of 2009 

The Atlanta flood in 2009 brought branches, chemicals, silt, and other debris into many Atlanta properties. Massive floods are terrifying for homeowners, but fortunately, many knew the SERVPRO name. We can only speak for our business, but we are confident that other Atlanta Water damage companies' phones were non-stop ringing. With many different water restoration companies in Atlanta, Atlanta homeowners must enlist in a reliable restoration company like SERVPRO.

Risks of Flood Damage  

With high contaminants in floodwater, it is best to hire a restoration company with the proper expertise. We don't advise any Atlanta homeowner to remediate the damage themselves. It is possible that the damage to your property can worsen if it is not done with proper flood remediation skills. The worst case of damage that we have seen is when we found moisture in hard-to-access areas of a home that didn't correctly restore their property. When we arrived, we found multiple places of mold growth. Contaminated water is one issue but mold alongside is a huge problem for all family members.

How can SERVPRO Help During an Atlanta Flood 

We want our Atlanta residents to know that our technicians have gone through restoration training and have certifications from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). We have handled flood damage of different magnitudes. Our owner Rick Northen knows the importance of investing in State-of-the-art equipment. On-site, we have multiple types of water extractors, moisture measuring tools, and drying equipment for any size disaster. 

Bonus Flood Damage Services 

Let's say mud and other undesirable substances are present on your driveway after Atlanta flooding. We will come out and use power washers to wash any debris off of your exterior surfaces. At our office, we have a place where we dump our wastewater causing us to properly dispose of the wastewater appropriately, such as in a sanitary sewer or transport it to an approved waste disposal site.

After Atlanta Flood Damage 

Once the drying process is complete, we will disinfect your home using chemicals beneficial for eliminating microbes. Anything materials that floodwater touches need to use EPA registered cleaning agents. Registered disinfectants destroy 99 percent of microorganisms like bacteria and fungi.

Do not let flood damage stress you out. Call your local SERVPRO of Downtown Atlanta (404) 835-0200 for effective restoration services. Our team is available around the clock.
