What are the Options for Handling Water Damage After a Storm?
Flood Damage Calls for Careful Consideration to Ensure Your Property is Safe from Hidden Moisture
Significant damage may arise when you have flooding within your home after a recent storm. High-volume water loaded with contamination poses a threat to not only your belongings but also structural materials and framework. Acting rapidly is the smartest way to ensure you limit the loss and cut back on costs, which is where SERVPRO comes in. We are Faster to Any Size Disaster so that you have peace of mind in knowing that skilled technicians will be removing water and beginning restoration efforts in no time.
Will I Have to Worry About Exterior and Interior Wall Damage?
Any time you have flood damage, walls that come into contact with flood water might be compromised somehow. Our team includes skilled IICRC-certified technicians ready to use the latest water removal equipment, treatments to quell bacterial growth, and products inhibiting the onset of potentially harmful mold. Even though we have industrial-grade pumps and extraction tools, there might be a need for controlled demolition measures to remove any materials contaminated by floodwater.
We address walls in your home by doing the following:
- Interior walls – The interior walls may require flood cuts, which begin several inches over the waterline. Not only does this allow us to remove unsalvageable drywall, but it increased airflow and helps to gain access to any moisture or standing water inside.
- Exterior walls – All around your home where the water came in, we need to monitor and inspect exterior walls. We use moisture sensor technology to detect moisture pockets and tell us whether or not we must create drill holes for the water to drain out.
Our efforts will ensure your home gets restored to preloss condition, which is what sets SERVPRO of East Brownsville & South Padre Island apart from other companies in the area. When you need help with flood damage, give us a call 24/7 at (956) 747-3020.
