SERVPRO Swiftly Repairs Flood Damage in Bellingham

Floods routinely threaten Bellingham homeowners because of the city’s excessive rainfall and bayfront location. Frequent storms often cause significant coastal flooding, while the nearly 4.5 feet of rain the area receives on average every year swells local waterways. Fortunately, when rising waters impact local homes, services like SERVPRO can help.

SERVPRO’s highly-trained and dedicated teams of flood damage professionals in Bellingham can usually return your residence to its pre-flood state in less time than other firms. Our biohazard remediation crews employ all of their expert knowledge when completing sewage cleanup, water removal services, water damage repairs, and overall flood restoration work. Some of the specific tasks SERVPRO technicians complete are:

  • Locating and evaluating all of a home’s flood damage, then determining the expenses and efforts necessary to remediate the issues before the project is started
  • Removing any standing water, sludge, or other debris that might have been brought into a residence by floodwaters
  • Drying out interior air in open areas and hard-to-reach places like crawlspaces, behind walls, and in attics
  • Restoring or replacing structural materials, including subflooring, floors, baseboards, walls, ceilings, framing, and insulation
  • Examining, cleaning, and repairing electrical components like switches, wall outlets, and light fixtures
  • Remediating HVAC system ductwork, restoring household contents, and thoroughly deodorizing all parts of a residence and its furnishings

Once these steps have been taken, flood-damaged homes have generally been returned to their pre-event state. Many times, SERVPRO performs these services so well that it is difficult even to detect that flooding has ever impacted your property.

With that said, keep your helpful neighbors at SERVPRO of Whatcom County in mind whenever you need assistance restoring flood damage. We are here and ready for your call at (360) 733-1800 seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day.
