Our Experts Have Extensive Training In Flood Damage Restoration In Stafford
Collective Threats of Standing Water in Strafford Homes
It might seem as though standing water is a threat enough with just its presence in your Strafford home, but without immediate extraction and removal, this water damage can become a destructive force in several ways. Most homeowners lack the equipment and experience to adequately address both the water removal and the drying of exposed materials and contents in your house, leaving no other credible choice but to pursue professional restoration. Our team helps to put your mind at ease and work with you to get your home back to preloss condition as quickly as possible.
Understanding the threats of standing water and flood damage in Strafford homes is the best way to ensure that you take the right preventative steps to protect your property as much as you can. Our SERVPRO professionals undergo extensive training to become thoroughly educated on the threats of flooding in a home as we have accreditations as water restoration and structural drying specialists. This training and experience can make up for the shortcomings of experience for residents and their respective homes during a flood, especially with how stressful and overwhelming this experience can already be for property owners.
One of the most considerable threats with standing water over any period is the effect it has on installed structural elements and construction materials. While drywall can quickly show the evidence of moisture saturation, materials like hardwood might not showcase the damage occurring as plainly as a swelling and degrading sheet of drywall does. Exposure to moisture, especially over several days, can reconfigure the composition of many affected materials and require replacement or repair.
Our SERVPRO team has sophisticated tools that exist specifically to identify lingering moisture and saturation concerns that exist out of sight. From thermal and infrared imagery to moisture meters with probes, we can keep tabs on the status of moisture content in the house. Without a knowledge of this dampness in these areas, the conditions can remain ideal for the production of mold growth for prolonged periods after flood damage.
Not every flooding situation involves contaminated water, but there are times where these potential threats cannot be entirely ruled out, either. In cases where this threat could exist, we have certified cleaning technicians with biohazard experience to oversee the containment and remediation of this threat.
