When rain brings floodwaters into your home, it is time to contact SERVPRO for drying out and remediation services. Call quickly for best results.

SERVPRO Certified Technicians and Project Managers Aim to Dry Out Your Property Quickly to Help Prevent a Mold Infestation

Rainfall totals in the Kailua area are over 50 inches per year, similar to other areas of Hawaii, but well above the nationwide average of 39 inches. Two out of three days show some precipitation, and there is always the possibility of significant rainfall on any given day. The surrounding mountains collect and send water our way as well, all factors contributing to a constant threat of flooding. Our business is to help if our watery climate or infrastructure imperils your property with flood damage.
Terracing of neighboring yards and drainage canals from nearby highways and streets augment the effect of heavy rainfall on your home, causing flood damage in Kailua. Poor maintenance on the part of others, allowing debris to build up and block the intended flow of rainwater runoff, has the unintended consequence of filling your lower levels with water, silt, and other residue. Assisting your recovery from this disaster is one of our core services.
Water is a powerful destructive force, not only soaking your home’s building materials and contents, but also threatening the integrity of its foundation and structure. SERVPRO is well aware of the devastation flooding brings to a home, particularly when the water comes fast and contains dirt, rocks, and other items collected as it surges. When we arrive at your home, our experienced managers check first for safety concerns, including structural stability and the threat of electric shock or breached oil or gas lines.
Then our highly-trained crews dig in to remove water, mud, and other residues. If your power is out, our truck-mounted pumps and extractors operate off our generators, avoiding any delay in getting the restoration work started. We have equipment resources that permit us to remove significant accumulations of silt and debris as well as the flood waters. Flood waters are almost always contaminated with chemicals, animal waste, and, potentially, with human waste. The advanced courses SERVPRO’s crew members master concerning gray and black water containment, removal, and disposal support our efforts to get your home back to a clean and sanitary condition.
Drying of the structure and contents is the next step. Air movers and dehumidifiers pull moisture out. If you have quantities of soaked personal belongings, the SERVPRO team inventories, moves, and stages them in a dry area where informed decisions can be made for their restoration or disposal. We offer state of the art document drying off-site, and recommend recovery strategies for furnishings, clothing, and other household items.
SERVPRO of Kailua North / Laie is always ready to meet your flood damage needs. Help is a just a call away. The line is answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (808) 235-5015.
