Our Technicians Discuss Steps To Restoring Your Coram Home After A Flood
Steps To Restoring Your Flood Damaged Coram Home To Its Original Condition
It is difficult to estimate the damage that flooding can cause in your home. You could extract the water, but it takes more than that to restore your home to its initial condition. You must identify items that can be salvaged and separate them from things you must discard. It is possible to restore items like furniture, appliances, photographs, and clothes.
When a flood damages your Coram residence, you must act quickly to prevent secondary destruction like mold growth. If a week passes without working on your home, its foundation can weaken. In less than a month after a flood, the cost of repairing your home’s walls, floors, and rooftop could become too expensive.
It is advisable to contact a reliable company which specializes in restoring homes destroyed by natural disasters, such as SERVPRO. You need to notify your insurer about the loss. If you have flood insurance, it can pay for flood-related restoration costs. However, you need to assess the damages quickly to start reconditioning your home. With most insurers, you can claim the following after a flood:
- Drying your house
- Fixing items like furniture and appliances
- Removing debris and chemicals spread by contaminated water
- Restoring your home
Our crew can help you clean your home by removing solid waste, debris, and silt from the floor. We can use rakes and shovels to remove these materials. This is also an excellent way to expose structural surfaces for additional evaluation and inspection. Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRTs) can also pump out the standing water from your home effectively. If the water is above two inches deep, we can use submersible pumps to extract it.
We can also sanitize the water with disinfectants before pumping it out. If there is a significant amount of sewage in basements or crawl spaces, we can work with a septic tank pump contractor to remove it. Our technicians dispose of contaminated water in a sanitary sewer system or licensed disposal facility. When using portable extractors indoors, we direct the waste down a toilet. We cleaned and disinfected the bathroom later.
Our technicians also place air movers in the appropriate positions to dry a home. We consider the materials we are drying, such as walls, floors, ceilings, and under cabinets, to determine the correct number of air movers to use and where to position them. Our SERVPRO crew then uses dehumidifiers to minimize the humidity in the air. We also use moisture sensors and moisture meters to detect the amount of moisture in your home. If moisture is present, we can take additional measures to dry the affected areas thoroughly. We restore homes quickly, helping our customers save time and money.
