When hurricane Florence hit North Carolina in late September, SERVPRO of Vermilion County was there to help put lives back together. The crews worked around the clock for three weeks. Our SERVPRO team came into homes locating the source of the water damage. Crews would then check walls and floors for moisture. After accessing each situation, they would decide what structure can or cannot be saved. An essential part of the job is determining where the water entered the home. For example, did the water come from the roof and work down through the walls or from lower levels and wick upward. If needed, they would tear out drywall, wet insulation, carpet, pad and sub floors. The crews worked tirelessly to remove all wet debris down to the studs. The drying equipment was strategically placed in homes for proper drying. This is a rewarding experience for our SERVPRO of Vermilion County team.
