Flood Damage San Marco FL – Owners Precautions Were Not Enough

8/29/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO equipment on shelves. SERVPRO will get you through the waves of flood damage in your San Marco area.

Don’t take on flood damage alone, we are always here to help in San Marco.

Recently a storm was forecasted to hit the area, and one owner thought he had done everything required to protect his home. He boarded up the windows and moved everything he could from the main floor to a higher level. The only furniture remaining downstairs were couches, a few large chairs, and tables. All of the area rugs were rolled up, and the electronics were disconnected and moved. Unfortunately blowing debris hit one of the boarded-up windows, smashing the plywood and the glass window. The main floor was quickly soaked with water and a variety of debris blown into the house.

The owner called SERVPRO about the flood damage in San Marco Fl requesting help to clean up his house, remove the water, and restore his home. Our team responded and immediately got to work. Since the owner had removed many items to the second floor of the house, damage to related items was limited. The team removed the debris blown into the house, and the broken window was boarded up once again to prevent additional damage from the elements.

Since we offer complete build back and restoration services, we were able to offer the owner a complete turnkey solution. We also removed the remaining furniture.  We removed all of the carpeting and evaluated the structural impact from flood damage. One wall had to have all of the drywall removed along with the insulation. The remaining walls were tested for moisture and deemed to be ok with sufficient dehumidification and air dryer application.

Once the home and structure were sufficiently dry, our team focused on restoration activities. Our objective at SERVPRO is to restore your home, "Like it never even happened." We installed new insulation. New drywall was installed, taped, mudded, sanded, and painted. The owner opted for hardwood floors instead of carpeting and paid the difference in costs compared to his insurance allocation. The furniture was also cleaned and returned to the home a few weeks after the storm. The client was delighted with the results!
