Your Belongings and Storm Damage
Storm and water damage from storms affect not only the structure of your house but also your belongings. SERVPRO of Sooland understands that your home is more than a structure; your furniture, clothing, keepsakes, and belongings help transform your house into a home. The first 24 hours after a storm causing widespread flooding and water damage are the most important in preventing secondary or permanent damage. Our IICRC trained professionals are prepared to handle all types of storm damage using the most advanced restoration technology.
Our Disaster and Large Loss Response Team is ready to respond as quickly as possible to help our community with cleanup and restoration. Once we've gathered all necessary information and determined the best course of action to address your storm issue, we move on to the next phase: inspection and assessment.
After we inspect and assess the storm damage, we begin immediately on water removal, as water will continue to soak into the floors, walls, furniture, and other areas of the home with each passing minute.
We then use special equipment to dehumidify and dry the affected area, halting any additional damage that may occur from dampness.
Cleaning, sanitizing, and restoration are all that's left to do. SERVPRO of Sooland is a full restoration company, which means a one stop shop.
After all Mitigation services are complete we can dispatch our Construction Team.

SERVPRO of Sooland specializes in restoring contents damaged by storms and other water damage events. Our expertise and our “restore” versus “replace” mentality can help you save money while preserving precious keepsakes that can’t be replaced. We pretest your contents to determine what items can be restored back to their condition before the water damage. We utilize several methods of cleaning your contents, including:
- Dry Cleaning - Used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean prior to cleaning.
- Wet Cleaning - An effective cleaning method for removing moderate to heavy residues.
- Spray and Wipe -Effective for items that can’t withstand cleaning.
- Foam Cleaning - Used for upholstery fabrics that might shrink or bleed if cleaned.
- Abrasive Cleaning - Involves agitation of the surface being cleaned.
- Immersion Cleaning - Contents are dipped into a bath of the cleaning product.
If your home requires extensive restoration or cleaning, SERVPRO of Sooland can conduct an organized, efficient move-out of the affected area. A move-out will provide several benefits, including:
- A quicker remodeling process
- Protecting items from potential damage
- Protecting contents from further on-site damage
When restoration is completed, we will work with you to coordinate the move-in according to your needs. The services offered upon move-in may depend on your insurance coverage.
Water-damaged electronics can present a serious hazard. Do not attempt to turn on or operate any electrical device that you suspect has been damaged by water. We will coordinate the restoration of your electronics, including:
- Television sets
- DVD players
- And more
The key to restoring electronics is taking prompt action to prevent further damage. We start by cleaning the exterior of electronic devices to help stop further corrosion and damage. Electronics will be cleaned and inspected by a qualified electronics technician.
Document / Photograph Drying
When your valuable documents, including photographs, are damaged by water, extreme caution should be taken to help ensure the water damage does not destroy the document. Although some documents may not be restored to pre-water damage condition, SERVPRO of Sooland can save a great deal and help minimize additional damage.
Depending on the type of documents and the level of water damage, we have five options for the restoration of documents:
- Air Drying
- Freezer Drying
- Vacuum Freeze Drying
- Vacuum Thermal Drying
