Water Damage in Your Cutler Bay Home
Cracked Aquarium Means Water Damage in Cutler Bay
Many homeowners in Cutler Bay enjoy the look of a fish tank in their homes. It is calming to watch the fish swim around, and some people like the waterfall noise of the filter. However, if the tank somehow cracks or breaks, you could end up with excessive water damage. The water can affect flooring, ceilings if the tank is upstairs, plus furniture and other belongings near the tank.
An incident where your fish tank breaks can be overwhelming, especially when your pets are going everywhere besides the water. Your Cutler Bay home that was fine a few seconds ago is now under several gallons of water which needs to be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent even further Cutler Bay home water damage. Our SERVPRO technicians can assist you anytime you need us, so don’t hesitate to give us a call right away.
Most of the time, when carpeting is involved, we need to disengage the carpet and remove the pad. Because the pad is inexpensive, a new pad can be installed when the carpet is put back. When doing so, the carpet is already cut to fit the room, so reinstallation is a matter of positioning the carpet correctly and stretching it back onto the tackless strip. Seams might have to cut seams at doorways when the carpet was taken out, so re-seaming is usually required.
When reinstalling the carpet, SERVPRO techs first ensure the subfloor is thoroughly dry and level. We vacuum and sweep to remove any debris and remove furniture and doors as necessary. We also check the carpet for weak seams, delamination, mold damage, or tears. We also reinstall the tackles strip when needed.
A new pad with the same thickness, type, and density as the old one is installed. The pad is laid out using tackles for a straight edge and is installed at right angles to the carpet seams. We cut the pad to fit the biggest areas first, using a sharp blade. The paid is laid down slick side facing up so the carpet can slide over it. We tape the seams of the pad and anchor it with double-sided, non-paper tape, glue, or staples.
