Flood Damage at Your Wethersfield Home-What to Expect
SERVPRO Mitigates Water Intrusion in Wethersfield Properties
Homes that take the brunt of a storm are likely to be damaged beyond repair. Some flooding involves relatively calm water, which only rises until a home is inundated. A high water depth does not necessarily mean the house is destroyed. But if a house was structurally compromised by decay or poor construction, the floodwaters could be the last straw. If you have a flood damage situation that requires rapid water restoration services, SERVPRO is here to help.
This list of potential flood damage in a Wethersfield home may seem endless and daunting. However, do not worry, as SERVPRO professionals focus on restoring flooded homes to their former glory. Squeegees and mops can handle small amounts of water, but bigger and better solutions are necessary for serious issues during flooding. The equipment required to achieve a well-rounded water response plan depends on several variables. These variables help determine our actions and the ideal tools to fix the issue.
Considerations when responding to flood damage
- The source of water
- The volume of water
- The duration of inundation
Water can leave its mark in various ways. If the foundation of your house shifts, doors and windows may be affected. The glass in your windows may break, and frames may be distorted. Also, water is an enemy of drywall, as it is made of porous materials which absorb water, thus weakening the walls and can feed mold. SERVPRO can help replace your drywall before it causes secondary damage.
Other ways flooding damages your home
- Damage to flooring
- Damaging appliances
- Swells framing
- Degrading sheathing
The insulation also suffers damage since the insulating fibers and foams absorb and hold water. These, too, need replacement unless you have closed-cell foam or other types of insulation that do not absorb moisture. Carpets and padding, however, are not worth saving after a flood. Laminate flooring usually peels apart and thus needs replacing.
