Mitigating Kitchen Flood Damage in Newport

Did you know that 90% of all natural disasters formally declared by the President of the United States involve flooding? This is no coincidence: flooding causes massive amounts of damage to numerous homes and structures and can do so in very little time. After just a week of exposure to water, wood and drywall can start to break down, and microbes have had time to proliferate, which can make it much more difficult to salvage a structure.

If your Newport residence needs flood damage mitigation that can act quickly, SERVPRO technicians are prepared to provide you with the services required to restore your home. These professionals utilize IICRC standards to maintain a consistently high standard of cleanup and mitigation that preserves homes across the region. Better still, your local SERVPRO is staffed by residents from the area who are in tune with the needs of the community.

Tips for Filing Your Flood Claim
    •    Get a certified copy of your flood policy. It is essential to both verify that you have coverage through the NFIP or other providers, as well as find out what precisely the coverage entails. Make this request as soon as possible.
    •    Get a damage estimate. Multiple estimates may be ideal before you submit your claim, so you know exactly how much you can get to cover costs realistically. Do not commence with repairs or disposal yet.
    •    Fill out a Proof of Loss. This form is a sworn statement containing your request for compensation, as well as a log of the damages incurred by the flooding. Send this within 60 days of the flooding.
    •    Contact an adjuster. Whether you use one provided by your insurer or an independent claims adjuster, these professionals can assist you with the claims process and submitting your Proof of Loss.

How SERVPRO Extracts Floodwaters from Your Home
Having the right extraction materials is essential to removing flooding. Many of SERVPRO's extraction tools feature three systems: vacuuming, heating, and pumping. If power was lost in your structure and a significant amount of water is still present, technicians can utilize gas-powered submersible pumps for water 2 inches in depth or more, or truck-mounted pumps for even more extensive water removal.
