SERVPRO Offers Specialized Solutions for Flood Damage in Your Augusta Residence

Whenever a disaster strikes in Augusta, how the flood damage is assessed in the hours following the event is crucial. During this time, action must be taken to not only ensure safety but also to minimize the costs involved for repair and restoration. Hiring professionals is an excellent way to ensure you embark on the right path to get your home back to normal.

Calling the experts for cleaning and repairing your home after flood damage in Augusta gets you started in the right direction. Some homeowners may think that water removal and cleaning is easy, but each situation presents a unique set of challenges that only the professionals know how to address.

Did you know that the type of paint used throughout your home plays a part in the handling of your flood loss situation? SERVPRO technicians understand the differences in paint and how it can impact the cleanup process. For example, water vapors pass, and water molecules wick faster through flat paint than semi-gloss paint. Depending on the finish in your home, drying behind cabinets, under flooring, or behind walls can take more time.

To allow air to circulate throughout wall cavities, SERVPRO technicians drill small, strategically placed holes. As Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASD), our SERVPRO team employs multiple drying methods to get the job done. Wherever there is a vapor barrier, such as a vinyl wall covering, water gets trapped behind the walls. Our technicians can take off the baseboards and drilling holes to make sure that all cavities get dried thoroughly to eliminate all hidden moisture. The small drilled “weep holes” can be connected with tubing from an injecti-dry system. This can force in warm air to facilitate the rate of evaporation while also expelling liquid and moisture from the cavities to the environment. From there, dehumidifiers can capture and condense the airborne water molecules.

Floodwater of any kind comes with debris and bacteria. SERVPRO technicians extract all water from the impacted area and then utilize specialized cleaners to disinfect and make the space livable once again. We must go through each step to ensure it seems, “Like it never even happened.”

Remember to check your insurance for flood coverage, if you have not yet done this. We can help with the claims paperwork to help relieve your stress in this difficult time.
