Mitigating Flood Damage within Englewood Homes
SERVPRO Remediates Flood Damage Quickly to Prevent Any Secondary Damages From Forming
Many disasters bring a multitude of risks with them whenever they affect properties in Englewood. As both a cause of perilous situations and a way for other dangers to remain hidden, water, especially murky, muddy flood waters, can turn your home into a treacherous place.
If your Englewood home suffers flood damage, it may seem insurmountable, but professional restoration can undo the damage and make your home safe again. Removing the risks, including those that can cause damage to your home in the future, should begin as soon as possible. SERVPRO's professional restoration technicians hold IICRC certificates in fields related to all stages of flood damage restoration and mitigation.
Our experienced crews are Always Faster To Any Sized Disaster, including flooded homes and businesses. We also arrive prepared and ready to start the work involved in restoring your home so your family can return to their usual routines. Interruptions such as flooding and other catastrophes can cause stress and other issues that affect people adversely. These problems only add to the already complicated situation, making it worse. This makes a quick recovery even more crucial.
Besides the interruptions caused by flood damage, your home's living environment becomes saturated with organic matter that includes pathogens, animal waste, and other unwanted materials. Motor oil and other vehicle-related liquids from the roadways can get washed into your home, as can chemicals placed on lawns and gardens. These can seem unlikely to cause harm, but in the interior environment of your home, they can pose risks your family should not face.
The water itself also creates hazards for your home's structure. Woods warp when exposed to water for extended periods, and metal fittings, fasteners, and other items can corrode rapidly. The glue under linoleum floors can dissolve and allow bubbled areas to form. Carpeting, due to its construction, often becomes so saturated with the filth carried by flood waters and requires removal and replacement. We have the equipment to dry these floors entirely so new carpeting does not rot or create the perfect environment for microbial growth underneath them.
Because water can travel up via capillary action, we use the Injectidry system. This allows us to dry out areas that otherwise might pose problems for us to reach. The tubing directs air from our air movers exactly where we want. Speeding up the process also saves you money by only drying out areas that need our attention.
