Water Cleanup Can Deter Costly Secondary Damages

A thunder and lightning show can often help residents in Yakima sleep more soundly. However, the storm can also create a nightmare situation occasionally. If a recent storm made a mess, your home might benefit from water cleanup services from SERVPRO.

Our dedicated employees work together in teams to make water cleanup efficient for our Yakima neighbors. We ensure that subsequent work to restore your home takes place in an environment that is as safe as we can make it. We also ascertain the risks of electric shock, slip and fall, and trip hazards. We remove such risks wherever possible or place warning placards.

Because storms are unpredictable, the damage they can leave within your home can also surprise you. Along with cleaning up rainwater, we also often need to clean up additional debris, including:

  • Roofing materials,
  • A fallen tree and any limbs, and
  • Nesting materials from nuisance pests.

Often, when a tree falls, it splinters the roof. The frame may come apart in some areas, necessitating us to remove it, followed by its rebuilding. Shingles and tar paper sections might find their way into your yard. These can contain nails or other sharp fasteners.

The tree also needs to be cut into manageable sections and taken elsewhere. While you can use this as firewood, we can remove the tree or any fallen limbs and dispose of everything if you wish.

Homeowners are often surprised and shocked to discover that nuisance animals have been living in upper crawlspaces or attic areas. While we might not see the actual animals, we often come across their nesting and bedding materials. Our IICRC-certified technicians remove these by contacting a third-party pest control company and apply antimicrobial sprays as a precaution after cleaning the area.

Once we remove the water and take care of the additional problems the stormy weather caused, we can rebuild the affected areas of your attic and roof. Call SERVPRO of Yakima at (509) 972-6707, and we'll make it "Like it never even happened."
