Contact SERVPRO to Restore your Wilmington Property After Recent Storms Cause Flood Damage

Summer storms may create a deluge that leads to water infiltration at one or more points around your property. Basement flooding and ceiling leaks are areas where DIY methods are not enough. You need skilled restorers on the job to handle flood water damage remediation so that your Wilmington home gets back to pre-storm condition. “Like it never even happened.” We act quickly to ensure you have as little disruption to your daily routine as possible. 

Flood damage restoration in Wilmington after a significant storm will have many working parts. IICRC-certified water restoration technicians (WRT) from SERVPRO arrive at your door within hours of your call to begin the evaluation phase of the project. Water clean-up then commences after we determine the contamination level of the water involved. Water contamination gets broken down into three categories, including:

  • CAT 1 – For category one events, freshwater usually comes from a leak in a refrigerator line, water overflow from a sink or tub, or burst pipes. While this is a clean-water event, the longer the water festers or it comes into contact with harmful elements, it can turn into contamination quickly.
  • CAT 2 – Also known as gray water, category two events include dishwasher or washing machine emergencies. This is mild contamination that our crew may not deem dangerous as a biohazard event. 
  • CAT 3 – Whenever there is storm flooding, this is a black water category three situation. Once you have floodwater coming into the home, such as basement flooding or groundwater coming in through your entry points, it gets treated as a biohazard. SERVPRO carefully treats the zone before working, puts containment barriers in place, and utilizes controlled demolition to remove any unsalvageable saturated materials.
