Storm Damage When Your Kingston Home Experiences A Flood Our Team Can Restore It To Pre-Damage Condition Wood can suffer greatly when exposed to water for lengthy periods, and flood damage in your home can cause such situations to happen rather quickly.

A Flood Can Destroy Your Kingston Home

Water covering the lower portions of your home in Norristown can soak into not only the walls' material but also into the wooden furniture legs, as well as your home's stairways, doors, and their frames. This can cause swelling and warping.

Wood can suffer greatly when exposed to water for lengthy periods, and flood damage in your Norristown home can cause such situations to happen rather quickly. SERVPRO technicians arrive with the equipment needed to remove the water in these items and get them dried out at a pace that prevents warping and cracking. Drying too rapidly can also cause problems, so we continually measure the moisture content that remains.

Wooden furniture, particularly the legs, swell once saturated, and this saturation happens slowly. We use heaters and air movers to reverse the process. Our air movers also remove any water vapor in the air, as well as porous materials that absorb it so easily.

Water can also ruin the finishes on these parts of your furniture. We clean these in preparation of restoration by furniture restoration experts. We partner with these professionals so you can relax and concentrate on other matters affecting your family.

Just like wooden floors, stairways can also become warped by flooding. While this may only affect the lower portion, stairs leading to the basement or cellar can become very dangerous. We check these for stability issues, loose treads and newly exposed nails, warped and cracked runners, and other issues that might develop.

Doors and their frames need to fit perfectly together or closing and opening them can become difficult or even impossible. Exterior doors that become hindered like this create serious security flaws. Interior doors that refuse to close properly can become tiresome and a real bother. Even within a family, privacy becomes necessary for everyone's peace of mind, at least every once in a while. Gaps in between doors and their frames ruin any sense of privacy immediately. We work with you on resolving these predicaments and getting your entryways restored correctly.

SERVPRO of Norristown knows how flood damage can affect your family overnight. The changes cause an immediate and serious amount of stress. We can help you get things restored in your home and your life. Call us at (610) 272-8520, if your home in Audubon, Trooper, or Evansburg needs mitigation services.
