Storm Damage in Kansas City, MO

When it comes to water damage there are 3 categories of water depending on the amount of contaminants that may be present.  Category 1 or "clean" water, doesn't pose a health threat.  Category 2 or "grey water" has some level of contaminants present and may harmful to humans.  Category 3 or "black water" is grossly contaminated and may contain bacteria, bloodborne pathogens and chemicals.  Due to the areas flood waters flow across during a catastrophic event, they are considered Category 3 due to the contaminants they may pick up along the way.  Affected material must be removed.  Since drywall often absorbs and "wicks up" water, it must be removed.  Cuts are made at 2 feet or 4 feet depending upon the levels of the floodwaters.  In this photo, you can see the basement of a home that was damaged during the 2018 floods in Kansas City, Missouri.

Tropical Storm Cristobal in Mobile, AL

When it comes to emergency water damage cleanup, nothing can stop us from taking care of our customers.  Even with Tropical Storm Cristobal bearing down on us, we answer the call of customers.  Our teams received many late night calls as Cristobal made landfall along the coast of Louisiana.  Despite being hundreds of miles from the center of the storm, we took a severe pounding from rain bands that left many low lying areas with minor flooding.  Our crews worked through the night to clean up damage from leaking roofs and rising water. At SERVPRO of Mobile County, we will always be Here to Help whenever you need us!
