Boynton Beach Property Owners Rely on SERVPRO for Storm Damage Restoration Services
What Can be Saved after Flood Damage in your Boynton Beach Home?
Finding your entire home, or several rooms covered in floodwaters creates a sense of loss immediately. Flooding causes a wide range of damages due to moisture action, microbial growth and contamination, especially when involving groundwater. Several items and building materials have to be thrown away after the incident, but it is also possible to save some. A professional flood damage restorer can help identify salvageable items immediately and take the necessary steps to restore them.
The loss of furniture items can add up the costs involved significantly. Salvaging upholstered items after flood damage in your Boynton Beach home is not always possible because of the clothing and other porous materials, which can retain contamination even after a thorough cleaning. Solid wood items, on the other hand, are salvageable. They only require sanitization and refinishing where necessary. Our SERVPRO technicians also ensure they dry in a controlled environment to prevent warping, cracking, and other physical damages.
What You Can Save on the Floor
The impact of flooding on floor materials is also substantial, considering they are submerged partially or fully during the incident. The heavily porous items such as carpets are unsalvageable because of the risk of contamination. Laminate floors are also unsalvageable because they swell quickly after absorbing water. It is possible to salvage hardwood flooring through quick action and the use of specialized techniques. Our SERVPRO technicians use high-efficiency equipment to extract standing water over the floor then use drying chambers for controlled drying. Among the equipment that helps us achieve this, includes:
Truck-mounted water extractors
What You Can Save on the Walls
Flooding also causes considerable damage to the walls. The damage affects submerged areas as well as elevated areas due to wicking water. Salvaging materials such as drywall and plaster is not possible once soaked. Our SERVPRO technicians make a flood cut a couple of inches above the water line to remove only the wet sections, saving the rest. It is also possible to save the frames and other structural supports through thorough cleaning and drying.
Sanitizing, Deodorizing, and Disinfecting
The microorganisms that are always present in groundwater can be innocuous or can be harmful. Precautions during water removal, drying, and restoring the flood-damaged areas to preloss condition, when possible, often require patient, professionalism, and the right equipment. We strive to restore rather than replace structural materials, contents, and personal items.
