The Ultimate List of Resources for Remediating New Milford Flood Damage
How Can Flood Cuts Help Your Damaged New Milford Home?
There are many steps to restoring your damaged New Milford home after a flood, many of which must begin as promptly as possible to reduce the spread of damage throughout the property. The faster that you can secure the services of professionals to restore your property, the less that floodwater can spread and saturate into materials throughout your home. Many of the mitigation practices of our responding professionals are effective when applied immediately after a flood emergency has occurred.
While many flood damages can affect your New Milford home, many of these widespread effects can get lessened by the prompt response of our professionals. Our SERVPRO rapid response team is available 24 hours a day to address your emergency and its effects as they happen, never asking any customer to wait for the restorative practices that can save them money and time when disaster strikes.
One of the common mitigation practices that occur when we first arrive at your home is a full assessment of the damage. We can utilize tools like moisture detectors and thermal imagery to determine the moisture pockets and saturation of exposed drywall and other materials throughout your property. Knowing how much of a drywall sheet has become exposed to the pooling water, we can tape off a line to indicate where the moisture begins moving towards the floors on the wall. This line is where the drywall gets cut and removed.
Flood cuts help in two different ways when your home becomes damaged by a flood. The first helpful aspect of this practice is the convenient access to dry wall cavities and other inaccessible areas damaged by the spread of floodwater. Secondly, by our SERVPRO team only removing the damaged portions of the drywall, reconstruction can get done in a fraction of the time and for a smaller price because there is less to replace and afford.
Mitigation needs to begin immediately following a flood in your home. You can reach our SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood rapid response team 24/7 by calling (201) 266-0482.
