"High water" in flooded street Don't let flood water take over your home, call SERVPRO's certified storm damage technicians for assistance.

Timing is Critical When Restoring and Recovering Flood-damaged New Orleans Homes. 

Knowing when to reach out to experienced restoration professionals can make the difference in the amount of your flood-damaged home that is salvageable. In most cases, you want to secure services to help overcome some of the pitfalls of DIY recovery. 

The Hazards of Post-Flood Conditions 

Before flood damage in New Orleans homes can be mitigated and cleaned up, our experienced SERVPRO team must assess the property for pressing threats that could impact the health and wellbeing of technicians or house occupants. With standing water, some concerns include:

  • Electric Shock – With many contents powered by electricity in a flooded space, the threat of live currents passing through the standing water must be addressed before even extraction and debris removal can get underway.
  • Structural Damage – Flooding can often have a disastrous impact on the structural integrity of exposed building materials. Potential collapse and weakening can lead to severe injury without getting addressed promptly.
  • Contamination – Natural flooding can introduce contaminants and pathogenic threats into the household. Standing water allows these microbes to move to several areas of the property quickly.

Capable Mitigation Equipment 

Mitigating damage and loss after a flood can be critical to protecting what matters most in your home. Unlike the capacities of DIY restoration with limited extraction and drying capabilities, we have hundreds of recovery machines to overcome disasters of all severities.
