Preventing Water Damage and Contamination is Vital for the Contents of Mount Vernon Homes After a Flood

While post-flooding recovery focuses on removing standing water and surface cleaning, protecting personal belongings caught in the destruction path is vital. We have cleaning technicians capable of responding fast with mitigative strategies designed to protect what matters most. 

On-Site Relocation Services Protect Contents

The steps taken to protect personal belongings exposed to flood damage in Mount Vernon homes begin with the efforts to relocate these items to safe places on the property. Higher points in the house unexposed to infiltrating water damage can provide the ideal conditions to store contents and furniture safely until flood restoration completes. 

Preventing Contamination and Microbial Growth 

Contaminants are a substantial concern for flooded homes and businesses, and this exposure can permanently damage the affected contents. Specific cleaning practices and products can lessen the severity of these conditions to remove threatening microbes, pathogens, and harmful solids. Some of these methods include:

  • Aggressive surface cleaning
  • Antimicrobial products
  • Sporicidal products
  • Disinfection cleaners

Pack-Out Services for At-Risk Items

When on-site cleaning is not sufficient for the affected items, a pack-out can be the next logical step- taking these damaged items to our nearby SERVPRO facility for focused cleaning, drying, and safe storage. When cleaning and remediation are complete in the flooded house, these belongings get returned to their original positions. 

After a flood loss situation, cleaning up often means focusing on necessary actions to prevent irreparable harm to personal belongings and contents. Protecting what matters most to the customer is a product of several mitigative steps taken when our SERVPRO of Skagit County team arrives. We are ready 24/7 to help after flood emergencies at (360) 873-8744.
