The Importance Of Achieving Dryness In A Home With Flood Damage In Concord
The Importance Of Achieving Dryness After A Flood
Many of Concord's residents are preparing for winter weather by checking their furnaces, installing weatherstripping around doors and windows, and making sure that outside water hoses are disconnected. Cleaning away fallen leaves and other debris helps keep homes looking well-cared for and beautiful.
One thing that homeowners in Concord cannot wholly prepare for is flood damage. Flooding can occur without any notice. The aftermath can shock homeowners with its destructiveness. SERVPRO is always here to help recovery from such situations. Our technicians are certified by the IICRC and continue to train extensively, so they know how to perform all of the methods and techniques your home needs.
Wooden structures in your home can often become dry again and experience little to no damage. Waiting to begin the mitigation process can undermine the ability of wood to dry out before warping, buckling, or other structural damage takes place. SERVPRO uses both heat and concentrated airflow to speed up drying while continually monitoring the drying process. Damage can result if drying occurs too rapidly, also, and we work to prevent this from happening.
Wooden floors, baseboards, doorway frame and trim, and the like, however, can lose their finishes when exposed to water for lengthy periods. Before applying new stains and finishes to these surfaces, they must achieve normal moisture levels again. The same applies to areas where homeowners would like to repaint. Removing these materials and placing them in a temporary drying chamber can help ensure even, thorough drying.
Our drying equipment includes heaters that gently raise the temperature without scorching materials. Our technicians can fit our air movers with hoses to direct the flow exactly where it can perform the most effectively. We use moisture detection equipment that can show us the amount of moisture remaining in any item we test. Removing moisture adequately also prevents situations involving overgrowth of microbes, which can cause damage to both your home and your family's personal belongings.
