We Can Save Your Flood Damaged Home In Augusta
Cleaning After Flood Damage In Your Augusta Home
Flooding events are not just highly destructive but also pose high risks when they affect your home. Restoring your Augusta home to its preloss state is possible, but it requires sufficient skills and resources to deal with the destruction and risks. We offer professional flood damage mitigation that lightens the burden for you.
Flooding incidents ruin properties in many ways, including soiling and structural destruction. When the flood damage in your Augusta home involves groundwater, only the primary issue is soiling and contamination. While it is painless to extract the water that collects in ground floor rooms and basements, in many cases, sludge is left requiring additional steps. Our SERVPRO teams use advanced equipment such as pressure washers or simple tools like shovels to deal with the slurry.
Contamination is a severe threat when property floods. It is not possible to save porous materials affected by the water even when physical damage is minimal because of the contamination - contents such as carpets and upholstery fall in this category. It is also necessary to remove building materials such as insulation and drywall. Our SERVPRO technicians make flood cuts six inches above the waterline for easier removal of building materials and water trapped in the wall cavities. We also remove carpets and other porous contents for proper disposal.
Flooding and the cleanup processes that follow leave many sections of the property wet. The relative humidity is also high within the house after the incident, which can lead to other problems like mold. Various drying steps can help restore the property to its preloss state. Our SERVPRO technicians manipulate elements such as heat and air movements to expedite the drying process. We can also create drying chambers by dividing expansive areas with plastic sheets to quicken drying. We rely on various advanced equipment such as:
• Air Scrubbers
• Air Movers
• Floor Drying Systems
