SERVPRO vehicle outside job site. When a storm strikes and flooding occurs, call SERVPRO for all the necessary storm damage restoration services needed for your home.

Implementing emergency services at the appropriate times can prevent greater flood damage to Wilmington properties.

From the initial arrival to the property, an inspection of the grounds can help determine the worst flooding damage in area homes. Moreover, this evaluation finds where debris and buildup exist in natural flooding scenarios so that our team can begin removing bulk materials and potential hazards.

When Does Muck-Out Cleaning Fit into Restoration?

You cannot always fully address flood damage in Wilmington homes or businesses without considering initial actions like muck-out cleaning. Removing debris and buildup from contents and the flooring can showcase where further drying and surface cleaning are necessary. Debris and mud also welcome bacteria and contaminants, providing another reason our SERVPRO team must work fast to prevent the spread and worsening of these conditions.

What Tools Are Necessary? 

Having the right equipment to clean up silt, mud, debris, and decaying matter can be critical. Waiting too long to clean up after flooding can cause greater harm to exposed materials and contents. Some of the most heavily used cleaning and debris removal tools in our leading inventory of recovery equipment includes:

  • Wet Vacuums
  • Shovels
  • Dry Vacuums
  • Extractors
  • Mops

Cleaning up after a flood damage incident often requires fast mitigation as soon as the situation develops. Our experienced SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere professionals can help with elements like muck-out cleaning and extraction. When you need post-flood recovery services, you can reach us 24/7 at (302) 992-0104.
