Water in living room that seeped into the house from outdoor rain. Our phones are operated round the clock to assist you with flood damage in your Vero beach home.

As we enter in to spring season rain is inevitable. With that, your home or property may be at risk of water damage. For example, road overflow from heavy rainfall could result in significant quantities of contaminated water entering the ground levels of your property. Since contaminated materials may be involved, our technicians may require you to evacuate affected areas of the home, or even the whole property itself. SERVPRO of Vero Beach’s technicians are trained to spot the presence of contaminants in water. Containment of the emergency is essential to avoiding cross-contamination. Cross-contamination is difficult to stop and can be spread on clothing, footwear, or through airborne particles. SERVPRO of Vero Beach utilizes plastic barriers to contain the affected area and can apply negative air pressure when necessary. After establishing a quarantine zone, you cannot enter the area unless you are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE.) We do this to ensure that harmful pathogens do not come into contact with noncontaminated areas. In some cases, the water is so contaminated it is considered “Black water”. In the case of blackwater, there are significantly more items that are considered unsalvageable. Structural materials like insulation, sheetrock, and some woods must be removed and disposed of properly. Contact SERVPRO of Vero Beach at (772) 770-0501 for emergency assistance. We have a full staff of experienced technicians, on-call, to assist you and your property in an emergency. Our phones are operated round the clock to assist you with flood damage in your Vero beach home.
