Even Minor Flood Damage In Your East Norriton Home Should Be Handled By A Professional Restoration Company
Why A Little Flood Damage Is Never A DIY Job In East Norriton
Flood damage to a property, even in small amounts, can cause multiple points of damage if it is not addressed correctly. When flooding is limited to a single area in a home, it may seem like all that needs to happen is dry the area and the situation is resolved. This can lead to mold issues or other secondary damages that can be costly for homeowners to repair.
When handling any size flood damage in East Norriton homes, SERVPRO technicians know floodwater is dealt with as blackwater or contaminated. If there is standing water remaining in the house, our technicians protect both themselves and the occupants by spraying biocide and wearing protective gear as they extract any remaining water from the home.
Digital probes show how deeply the water has penetrated floors, walls and other parts of the structure. It is important to know that carpet padding is notorious for absorbing water and blackwater can wind up in areas of the home that seemed initially unaffected by the initial water intrusion. SERVPRO technicians are certified in several areas of water damage remediation and know how to identify areas where the water has seeped.
Complete drying is crucial for avoiding mold and mildew problems. SERVPRO uses dehumidifiers to bring down moisture levels while using air movers that are positioned at angles to direct air up and out of the room. We know that even though the area may look dry on the service, moisture probes verify the building structure is dry. Heavy furniture that only had water contact with the legs or non-porous areas may be dried up on blocks on a case by case basis.
Due to possible contaminants, non-porous surfaces that came into contact with water are thoroughly cleaned using our professional antibacterial and antimicrobial formulas to ensure surfaces are disinfected and inhibit mold growth.
Flood damage is a situation that should always be handled by professionals for safety reasons. SERVPRO of Norristown at (610) 272-8520 has certified emergency technicians available to help you turn around water loss in your home “Like it never even happened.”
