Importance of Fully Addressing Flood Effects in Homes

Flooding can quickly get out of control for your home, leading to widespread surface water concerns and a pressing need for water removal services. Even without the threat of contamination, properly drying and recovering the property can protect your belongings and the investments you have made in the house.

DIY restoration and cleaning are a common consideration for flood damage in homes, especially when homeowners believe the loss has only reached a small area in the house. Among the most pressing threats that exist after migrating flood damage is the water entering areas that property owners cannot see or restore, making the full restoration and recovery of your house impossible. It is essential to thoroughly dry out moisture and saturation from the contents, construction materials, and furniture.

Failure to properly dry out the damaged areas can lead to more substantial threats like mold and microbial growth. Superficial drying of your home might give the impression that the work was completed successfully. Without inspecting structural cavities, building materials, and other areas out of your immediate sightline, you cannot know if you have adequately addressed the moisture concerns. Our SERVPRO professionals can help with a thorough inspection of the house and a determination of the attention affected areas need.

The inspection of your property hinges on the sophisticated tools and equipment available to our professionals. Apart from fast extraction tools like our electric sump pumps and pump trucks, and our line of premier drying equipment, we have an assortment of discovery tools and devices to know where moisture has reached beyond the surface and its concentration.

Between drying materials like hardwood flooring and carpeting, low profile centrifugal air movers in combination with weighted extraction units or drying mats can have a positive effect on flooring materials that can get saved.

DIY restoration is rarely as cost-effective and efficient as homeowners might believe. Our SERVPRO of Paramus team can help with a fast response and a knowledgeable delivery of thorough recovery services. Give our technicians a call whenever you need us at (201) 445-5588.
