Flood Damage Cleanup and Repair
Flood damage cleanup and repair is the process of cleaning up and repairing the damage to a building caused by flooding. Flooding can occur for a number of reasons. A local water source like a river or dam might overflow, or water from severe thunderstorms could cause flash floods. Your house might be at a greater risk for flooding based on the structure of the house or the position of the house on the property. With our services, you can tackle any flood damage that might occur for any of these reasons without delay. You can trust that our flood damage professionals will take care of assessing the damage, drying the area, restoring the material, and preventing further damage like mold and mildew.
Ceiling, Wall, and Floor Repair
In the case of a flood, the ceilings, walls, and floors of the affected area will need to be repaired and treated. With our flood and damage cleanup and repair service, we will drain and dry saturated surfaces, and we will replace any surface that has been saturated by flood water. Water-soaked ceilings and wallboard begin to disintegrate as a result of the standing moisture, so we will replace these materials. Soaked sub-floors will have to be replaced as well. We will drain, dry, and disinfect any material that does not need replacing.
Our specialists will use a range of industry tools and equipment to assess the damage, drain and dry the affected areas, replace and restore saturated materials, and disinfect the entire affected area. We will assess the damage by using moisture sensors to determine the saturation levels of the area and to map how far the saturation has spread. We will use industry grade vacuums and dehumidifiers to dry the affected areas, as well as air scrubbers and disinfectants to remove odor, bacteria, and particles from the air. Rest assured that our licensed professionals are knowledgeable of the equipment they use and will restore your home to its pre-flooded state.
Risk of Mold
Many of the steps we take in dealing with your flood damage is essential to preventing mold and mildew from growing. Mold likes to grow in moist indoor areas, so it’s essential to drain and dry any surface or structural materials that have been saturated by the flood. The steps we take to dry and dehumidify your home will prevent mold from growing and will detect any mold that has already begun growing. You don’t want to take care of your flood damage problem only to find that you have another problem on your hands.
