Cutler Ridge Properties Often Need Stop-Gap Mitigation  

While water extraction and damage cleanup are often among Cutler Ridgehomes' priorities after a disaster, some actions often occur before mitigation steps can begin. Effective mitigation, including water removal, must often happen within a 48-hour window from the initial exposure of materials and contents, making emergency services that happen before job scoping on a critical timeline. 

Water damage repair for Cutler Ridge means more than the build-back services often required of our in-house contractors after the restoration completes. There are multiple rehabilitation and reconstruction phases, starting as soon as our professionals first arrive, including: 

  • Plumbing Damage – Between broken hoses and fixtures feeding appliances like the dishwasher and clothes washing machine to plumbing throughout the property, repairing damaged pipes and connections prevent worse conditions. 
  • Board Up – Structural damages can often involve your property's exterior, leaving vulnerable areas for flooding. Board up and tarping are quick solutions to get mitigation started.  
  • Debris Removal – The degradation and deterioration of exposed materials can generate debris and rubbish. We can clean and discard these remnants before mitigation gets underway. 

When Does Controlled Demolition Occur?  

Controlled demolition is often a needed element in the restoration and recovery of water-damaged structures. Pipe bursts can overwhelm porous materials like drywall, and removing compromised construction materials provides faster access for drying and a better foundation for reinstallation and reconstruction later. Controlled demolition is a carefully calculated process to reduce the time spent replacing discarded materials and to reduce expenses in the needed materials to make it "Like it never even happened." 

As challenging as water damage property losses can often be, repairs and demolition must often occur before other restorative actions to make the house's recovery more efficient and cost-effective. Our SERVPRO of Cutler Bay team can help restore your property needs. Contact us at (305) 278-8484.
