Does a Medford Home Need Decontaminated After Flash Flooding?

Boots in flood water SERVPRO technicians come equipped with state of the art equipment and skill to wipe out any trace of flood damage in your property.

SERVPRO’s Trained Biohazard Team Can Mitigate Flood Damage in Medford Homes

Flash flooding can occur anywhere, at any time. When those floods come surging through residential areas, it brings all kinds of debris and contamination. Blackwater like this requires professional mitigation to ensure everyone’s safety.

Contaminated Water Can Be Deadly

When flood damage in Medford involves black water, it is a serious problem. Floodwater surges through the town, along streets, and over commercial areas. By the time it reaches the home, it has picked up bacteria, chemicals, and debris. Standing water quickly turns into a breeding ground for many microbes. Homeowners should never attempt to clean up black water. The proper PPE and equipment are needed to get the job done safely and efficiently.
