Don't Let A Microburst Cause Flood Damage To Your Home In Concord
SERVPRO Turns Around Flood Damage From Microburst In Concord
A microburst is a weather phenomenon that continues to be frustrating because of the rapid setup and quick moving nature of these storms; they are both difficult to predict and track for meteorologists. Common occurrences during this type of weather event include dangerous downdraft winds of up to 80MPH, localized heavy rains that can cause flood damage and hail.
SERVPRO took on the task of restoring the storm damage in a Concord attic. The homeowner contacted us shortly after the storm had passed and the roof had temporary patching applied to stop any further water from entering. Our technicians immediately got to work pinpointing the problem areas. Roof damage occurred from high winds and hail, which allowed water to leak into the attic space.
Plastic sheeting was used as containment around the attic entry to minimize transference of dust to the rest of the home during cleanup. SERVPRO technicians determined the fiberglass insulation would not need to be replaced and used insulation vacuums to remove and hold for reuse and allow for complete drying of the sheetrock underneath. This attic was small, so the team chose to use smaller but powerful, portable wet/dry vacuums that eliminated the standing water quickly, while the technicians determined the sheetrock had not sustained damage that would require replacement and there was no danger of sagging if it dried in place.
Air movers and dehumidifiers were used to dry the affected side of the attic quickly; technicians used moisture detectors to ensure all trace amounts of moisture were undetectable before wiping down with a fast-drying antifungal to inhibit mold growth and reapplying the insulation.
