We Can Prevent Long Term Issues After A Flood In Your Cutler Bay Home
Preventing Long Term Problems After Flood Damage In Cutler Bay
When a flooding incident affects your home in Cutler Bay, it can leave other problems that continue affecting you long after you finish cleaning. Taking proper actions during the restoration process can help protect you from long-term issues. We offer professional restoration of flood damage that can help you overcome the challenges.
Cleaning up soiling and debris is essential when dealing with flood damage in Cutler Bay. Floods mostly involve black water loss because the water flows over large swathes of land collecting different contaminants. It is, therefore, a useful idea to remove any porous materials affected by the incident because of the risk of long-term contamination. Our SERVPRO technicians remove carpet and pad for disposal. We also treat non-porous materials on the floor and walls with EPA-registered disinfectants neutralize contaminants.
The wetness from the floodwaters can easily spark mold infestation in your property. Removing the water from affected rooms is easy. However, some of the moisture can remain trapped in concealed areas such as wall cavities, subfloors, and crawl spaces. Eliminating such moisture protects you from the tough and at times expensive undertaking of removing mold later. Our SERVPRO technicians use various moisture detection tools to check for moisture in materials and concealed spaces. We use FLIR thermal cameras to check for wet areas behind walls or other concealed areas. We also use moisture meters to check moisture levels in materials. We then use various drying equipment including LGR dehumidifiers, which allow us to reduce humidity to lower levels compared to using conventional refrigerant dehumidifiers.
Flooding can interfere with the energy efficiency of your home by affecting the R-value of the insulation. Wetness also causes some types of insulation such as Rockwool to matt thus rendering them useless. Our SERVPRO technicians open up walls to replace the wet insulation thus keeping your home energy efficient.
