May 10th, 2017 · No Comments

We’ve had our April showers and, with summer fast approaching, thunderstorms will be cropping up with increasing frequency. Unfortunately, this can lead to flooding in your Yankton, SD, home, especially if you live along the river. While you likely have a sump pump to prevent flooding, it may break or the water levels may be too much for it. Suddenly, your home has become a swimming pool and you’re left feeling helpless and alone. That’s why ServiceMaster Clean of Southeast South Dakota is here to help you with every aspect of water damage restoration. But what goes into cleaning up after a flood?

Water Extraction: The first step is obvious— water removal. If there is standing water, our professionals have industrial grade water extractors to remove the water, ensuring that the space is able to dry.

Drying: Once all of the standing water is removed, our technicians can begin drying the space. We use industrial fans that we strategically set up around the affected area to allow for optimal drying. Thoroughly drying the space is important, not only to prevent the moisture from continuing to damage the space, but to also prevent mold growth. Mold can begin to form within 24-48 hours, as long as it is in a warm, moist space with organic material, such as wood, to feed on. Mold can cause a variety of health issues, particularly for the young, elderly, and individuals with pre-existing respiratory issues.

Pack-out & Content Storage: If your belongings have been affected by the water, our technicians will go through each item to determine whether or not it can be salvaged. Items that are beyond repair will be disposed of. Salvageable items will be packed-out and stored in a secure, offsite facility where they will be dried and restored. Once the project is complete, salvaged items will be returned to the home.

Regardless of the level of water damage, the professionals at ServiceMaster of Southeast South Dakota are here to help restore your home to its pre-loss condition and help your life get back on track. We’re available 24/7 to ensure quick restoration. If your Yankton, SD, home has been affected by flooding or any other form of water damage, give us a call at (605) 665-7080.
