Our Specialists Explain The Steps For A Successful Restoration After A Flood In Your Concord Home
Ways To Ease Restoration Of Flood Damage In Concord
Flooding incidents can happen in different ways including rising water that gains access to the house through regular openings such as doors. Winds or falling tree branches can also open up holes in the roof or walls allowing rainwater to reach the interior of the house. All types of flooding incidents leave considerable damage, but taking some steps can ease restoration.
Standing water causes most of the problems during flood damage in Concord. Removing such water fast can help minimize the losses suffered. Apart from using sophisticated equipment for extraction, other approaches such as opening up walls might also help. Our SERVPRO technicians remove baseboards or make flood cuts to help ease removal of water trapped in wall cavities.
Flooding affects materials through saturation, which can lead to loss of structural integrity. Materials like drywall, insulation and particleboard partitions readily absorb water. Our SERVPRO technicians use moisture meters or sensors to check the level of water absorption and decide whether to dry the materials or remove them altogether. In cases where the water sits over an extended period, we opt for removal because it is not possible to restore the materials to their preloss state. We also remove porous materials such as carpets and pad to eliminate the risk of contamination because cleaning cannot remove all traces of contaminants left by floodwaters.
Flooding soils properties by dumping silt and mud, which can leave your property murky. The water may also contain biohazards such as raw sewage and other chemicals. Removing the visible and invisible soils can take time. Our SERVPRO technicians use various automated cleaning equipment to ease the task. We use pressure washers to clean mud and other heavy soils from the loss areas. We also use various multi-surface scrubbers to remove soils that adhere to surfaces. Combining such equipment with the application of professional cleaning agents allows us to clean your property to a sanitary level.
