Flood Damage and How it Can Affect a House in Silver Lake
Because water can permeate almost anything with even the smallest sized pores, any amount of intrusive water can cause harm to a house in Silver Lake beyond the areas that initially became saturated. Moisture can end up through an entire home, including on higher levels when water vapor leaves condensation on objects and surfaces.
When SERVPRO mitigates a property in Silver Lake of flood damage, we include all of the aspects that affect that property. Because electrical systems can become dangerous to use after a flood, we can bring our power supply. We also partner with certified electricians to ensure that your power works safely and correctly before we finish the work and you return home.
Other areas of your home that can sustain damage include the structure and framework. We check to determine the degree of structural damage and discuss with you any additional work that your house might require. Some structural shifting that occurs can continue to increase while other changes might only affect a home temporarily or revert back to normal within a short time. Such changes can affect any newly installed drywall and cause gaps and breaks in the interior of a newly restored home.
Beams can also warp and twist when wet, which makes it crucial that we use the right equipment to dry these out thoroughly. However, this starts with buckets to carry out any mud and other solid or semi-solid debris that covers your house's floors. Then we begin pulling out flooring and affected walls. Furniture that the flood destroyed also gets moved out of your home. Then we can bring in the big air movers and the desiccant machines.
One the interior structure becomes dry, and no more shifting seems likely, we can install new drywall and flooring, making your home that much closer to how we want it before your family moves back in. We finish with painting and deodorization, and a final walk-through with you.
