Gutter and French Drain Failures Can Lead to Flooding in Your Boynton Home
SERVPRO Technicians Remediate a Current Flooding Scenario or Can Suggest Preventative Measures for Homeowners
You might not think about it very often, but your Boynton home has a lot of precautionary implements installed to help prevent disasters like flooding from occurring. Your french drain around the perimeter of the foundation of your home is an excellent example of this. Additionally, the gutter systems that outline the edges of the roof of your house are another way to keep considerable water from ending up where it could pose a threat.
When any of these preventative measures fail or become ineffective, your Boynton home can fall victim to flood damages. While our SERVPRO team can help you to clean up the mess and dry up the areas of your home that became affected by the substantial water damage, understanding how these precautionary implements work for your home and how you can keep them running correctly is essential to preventing this kind of problem for your home.
Our SERVPRO team can help you to identify the primary source of the flood waters in your home and offer suggestions for repairs and solutions beyond the nature of our industry. With everything running as it should, we can get to work on extracting the water pooling in your home using either portable pumps and vacuums or a pump truck from our fleet if the water damage is severe enough.
Drying the area follows after the extraction process, and this typically involves the combined use of air movers and dehumidification equipment. Getting the area thoroughly dry is imperative to preventing compounding damages like mold growth. Lingering moisture can create this hazard in your home in as little as 72 hours, so getting the area dried completely and quickly is critical.
While you might not be aware of how some of the precautionary implements installed in your homework to divert water, a general understanding of these items can help you to keep them working as they should. If you do experience flood damages, our SERVPRO of Boynton Beach team of water damage restoration technicians can help you to get your house back to its original condition quickly.
