We strive to assist our Mount Airy community with their flood damage.

If last year is any indication, residents of Frederick County need to be on our toes regarding flooding and rise in water levels. Heavy rains alone can be responsible for overflowing bodies of water that make their way into your basement, leaving homeowners in need of specialized services to recover from flood damage and restore our homes as soon as possible. It only takes an oversaturated sewage line to divert water into our homes, along with debris and bacteria that can cause problems in the future if it is not treated correctly.

When your home in Mount Airy is the victim of flood damage and your basement is underwater, reach out to SERVPRO for our expert services. Our team is certified in the latest techniques and equipment to restore your home while minimizing your losses. In water events, time is of the essence, and minimizing the time floodwaters live in your home is the key to success. Our crew is available 24/7, so we can respond as soon as the emergency happens; all you need to do is call.

As the water extraction process evolves, we work with you to dispose of any items posing a threat to your home. Typically, these include upholstery, carpets, and any porous materials soaked in water. As soon as we can, we remove them from your home to prevent unwanted bacteria from traveling throughout your property and affecting other areas. Upon arrival, we utilize a variety of equipment which may include submersible pumps, handheld extractors, and drying mats to dry out the area. Our SERVPRO crew may also use moisture sensors and thermal imaging cameras to inform us of our progress in removing excess moisture from your basement. When our staff members continue with disinfecting your home, they can also focus their attention to airborne particles and may use air filtration devices to purify the air and remove any lingering contaminants left behind in the air. All these steps are necessary to protect your home now and in the future.

SERVPRO of Frederick County is your ally when water comes into your home uninvited.  Call us at (301) 662-1747 and let us leave your home, "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO is Ready with a Comprehensive Solution for Flash Flood Damage in Frederick

When heavy rains fall in northern Maryland, anticipate flash flooding in Frederick. The storms might be predicted, but the level of damage your home eventually experiences is difficult to anticipate. Be ready for all aspects of torrential rainstorms and the flooding that follows by partnering with our dynamic team of experienced managers and highly-qualified technicians.

You cannot miss a beat when your residence in Frederick suffers from flood damage. The force of the water pouring in and its destructive properties all contribute to the risk of severe and permanent damage to the lower levels of your house. Engaging our services as soon as the unfortunate path of the water into your basement, foundation, or crawl space is clear is one way to ensure a successful outcome.

Expect the SERVPRO team to arrive ready to assess the scenario rapidly, confident that we can devise a plan covering everything from water removal and drying to controlled demolition and rebuilding of structures as needed. We are proud to offer a one-stop-shop of comprehensive services to streamline your flood damage recovery journey.

Our crews prepare to do their best on your job with training from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC). We bring the restoration industry’s best practices and successful strategies to every work site. We manage water removal after the fluid is categorized. Typically flooding is considered black or category 3 water, highly contaminated and in need of containment and appropriate disposal according to local rules. The SERVPRO team takes care of this as a matter of course.

To release all the water infiltrating your lower levels, we might choose to make flood cuts. Several inches above floor level and the flooding marks we cut out the wall to allow access to trapped moisture and permit better airflow during the structural drying that follows. SERVPRO’s commercial grade air movers and heaters accelerate the natural drying process, causing the moisture absorbed into structures to vaporize in the drier air. Dehumidifiers condense or absorb the airborne moisture for removal.

Our rebuilding crew addresses the flood cuts and other structural damage as soon as we reach the drying goals established by baseline moisture metering. SERVPRO truly makes it “Like it never even happened.” with the addition of these project completion services.

SERVPRO of Frederick County has you covered from assessment up to the last touch-ups on your newly rebuilt walls, ceilings, and more. Call (301) 662-1747 when the rains overstep their bounds.
