A Host of Issues After Storm, Flood Damage in Plantation Home
Storm damage can and will take over your Plantation home, let us be there.
Flood damage brings more than just water damage to a property. Several issues accompany this type of home disaster, even if it is as little as a half-an-inch of water has the potential to require the gutting of a home.
One of the best things a Plantation homeowner with storm or flood damage can do is engage cleanup efforts as fast as possible. Water migrates quickly, and sheetrock is particularly susceptible to wicking water and shows signs of warping and buckling quickly. Common issues after an in-home flood include some of the following challenges.
Contaminated Water Safety
When a tree limb breaks a window, the water that enters the home generally poses no threat unless it has been more than 24-hours since the incident. Groundwater is another story. This type of water picks up everything it encounters along the way and frequently has mud and sewage when it enters homes. SERVPRO technicians have the equipment to test the water to determine the nature of any toxins or chemicals present and choose the appropriate cleaning agents to disinfect the home.
With the elevated humidity, naturally occurring airborne mold spores have the potential to germinate and quickly spread. SERVPRO technicians carry a mold remediation certification #MRSR2994. They know the early warning signs of a mold infestation and how to halt the growth and establishment of colonies through the use of chemical agents and the establishment of drying goals.
Controlled Demolition and Rebuilding
Removal of carpet, padding, and sometimes tile to dry the subfloor is standard with flood loss. When sheetrock receives water damage, the technicians perform flood cuts to open up the wall cavities for complete drying. With their contractor license #CBC1261730, in many cases, they can offer reconstruction services to rebuild the property and restore it to its preloss condition.
