Flood Damage Remediation and Checking for Hazards in Your Mulford Gardens Home
Checking for Hazards After Flood Damage
If heavy rains, thunderstorms, and flash floods are frequent in Mulford Gardens, you must know the steps to take to protect your home and family from flood damage. Just one inch of floodwater can cause thousands of dollars of damage to an average-sized home. Regular maintenance is the best way to protect your home, such as keeping your gutters clean and checking storm drains for debris.
Flood damage to your Mulford Gardens home can be devastating, and the more time the water sits in your home, the worse the damage is. You need the professional help of our staff at SERVPRO to dry your home out as fast as possible. We do not hesitate to get to your home after reaching out to us so remediation can be started right away.
Storm-damaged structures could pose hazards, and floods can create large amounts of damage to a building. Exposure to water can weaken things such as flooring and drywall, making hazards for everyone. We check for structural problems before water damage restoration.
Ceiling Repairs from Water Damages
Other steps we take for safety include checking for gas. If gas is present, we contact the local gas company right away. If water has entered from above, we look for trapped water in ceiling cavities. Drywall disintegrates when wet, and ceilings could fall on you or our staff. We drill holes to release any trapped water in the ceiling and are careful not to punch them in a row and perforate the ceiling.
Particle Board floors that have been exposed to water might not hold the weight of machines or people. SERVPRO workers inspect the subfloor to figure out the kind and how steady it is. Exposed nails, broken glass, fragments, and other sharp objects could be present as well. The staff is careful to watch where we step and what we pick up.

Once hazards are located and taken care of, our IICRC-certified team can begin removing the floodwaters and dry your home. SERVPRO works quickly but efficiently to ensure that your home does not suffer additional damages.
