Storm Damage

During heavy rains and storms flooding occurs.  When the water rises to a certain depth within a structure it may be necessary to perform a flood cut.  Here you can see where we assisted a resident that had an enormous amount of rising water.  SERPVRO of Athens performed a flood cut and cleaned the debris and removed it from the home.  We then set drying equipment to further dry the structure.

Floods in Athens, Georgia

Recently Athens, Georgia has been experiencing an abundance of floods due to rainwater.  Rising water is not clean water and can bring many contaminants into your home.  Mold spores are often left behind and travel throughout your structure rapidly.  It is imperative that you dry your structure properly in order to reduce the risk of mold growth.

Georgia at Risk for Hurricanes

As a coastal state, Georgia is at risk for hurricanes that form in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico.  Although Athens is not as close to either of these coast lines the catastrophic damage can reach even hundreds of miles inland.  Always know what to during a catastrophic event.
