After A Flood Causes Damage To Your Cutler Bay Home Call Our Crew Of Specialists
Avoiding Secondary Issues From Flood Damage In Cutler Bay
Flood damage in a home is one of the most stressful situations a homeowner can face. When we get the call to remediate water loss in a home, it is crucial to act quickly to dry the house and contents to prevent secondary damages.
When handling flood damage in Cutler Bay homes, SERVPRO technicians know that this situation needs to be handled quickly but also with compassion. Saturated items are moved out of the house with the homeowner's approval, and any remaining standing water is extracted using portable pumps for smaller jobs and truck mounted pumps for large-scale water removal when needed.
The process of drying a home is more than setting up fans and hoping for the best. Our technicians set up air movers at specific angles unique to the property to move moist air up and out in the most efficient manner. If drywall has become saturated, SERVPRO uses moisture probes to determine how far into the drywall moisture has penetrated. Weep holes or sections are cut away as needed to allow for the air to reach behind the drywall.
Dehumidifiers lower moisture in the air and in some cases our technicians use heaters to get rid of excess moisture in building materials and restorable home contents during the drying phase of restoration. This is a critical step in ensuring there are no damp areas that harbor mold.
Mold spores can set up home in damp conditions as quickly as 24-48 hours after a water loss incident in a home. SERVPRO technicians use proprietary formulated cleaners that eradicate both mold and bacteria to wipe down non-porous surfaces affected by water. Technicians know porous items that have been saturated need to be handled on a case by case basis, and we do not remove any unrestorable items without homeowner approval.
