Restoring Your Home after Flood Damage Hits Jacksonville
SERVPRO Technicians Have the Tools and Experience to Find Hidden Water and Thus Possibly Prevent a Mold Infestation in Your Home
Homes in the Jacksonville area have been through a tremendous amount of wear and tear in recent months. Flooding often happens to homes in our state because of the amount of water surrounding us.
When a Jacksonville home sustains flood damage, quickly acting can keep the spread of damages low while keeping costs minimized, also. As damages increase, so do loss and expenses related to the disaster. These damages include both the visual impact as well as activity at the microbial level.
Flooding from either storms or overflowing bodies of water near your residence can flush yard debris, sewage, and garbage into your home. Along with our removal of these larger items, we also use cleaning agents that neutralize any microorganisms present. Because these living contaminants can come from anywhere, it is not recommended ever to overlook their potential for harm.
Extracting any water present after the floodwaters recede, we can begin restoring your dwelling. Removing waterlogged walls helps remove additional amounts of moisture inside your home, as does removing the carpets on affected floors.
Rolling carpeting up into bundles for handling and disposal exposes the padding. Removing older padding can appear highly messy and time-consuming, but it is because of the composition and condition of the padding.
After we remove the lower sections of drywall and all textile floor coverings, we can begin drying out your home. We implement large air movers to not only direct air currents toward walls and other damp areas but to direct that moister air outside or toward desiccant machines. The interior of walls can hold moisture, affecting wiring and other components unless dried quickly. We partner with electricians to ensure the elimination of any danger.
Flooring that was under water must become dry again as quickly as possible to prevent warping, cracking, and other troubling issues. We apply heat to floors via the use of heated mats. Attached to these mats, tubes suction off any evaporated water, placing it in containers for disposal.
At SERVPRO of Jacksonville South, the goal when dealing with homes suffering from flood damage includes restoring everything, including the air inside, to usual dryness.
