At Last, An Efficient and Easy Way For Flood Damage Remediation in Lafayette
Worn Seal on Storm Door Lets in Flood Damage in Lafayette Home
The reality of flood damage is that it is an experience that you can plan for, but not prevent. There are numerous ways water can enter a home from storms such as a damaged roof, broken window due to high winds or hail and groundwater flooding. Since flash floods and violent storms are no strangers to this part of the state, fast action is the key to minimizing water loss to both your home and contents.
SERVPRO received a call from a Lafayette homeowner that had flood damage from heavy storms that came through the area. A flash flood brought water in around a worn seal around the storm door and soaked about half of the living room.
Because groundwater is considered a category three biohazard, it should always have professional mitigation for both health and safety reasons. We arrived on site quickly and removed the saturated area rug in the living room and extracted the remaining water.
We scoped the room to confirm the extent of the water loss and to determine exactly where the flood water migrated to. Our probes showed no extra moisture present in the subflooring or behind the baseboards and we confirmed with thermal imaging water had not wicked into the sheetrock.
Water touched only the legs of the furnishings in the room, so we placed them on blocks to avoid too much disruption in the home and got them ready for drying.
We use high-velocity air movers to pull deeply rooted moisture from within the flooring and contents and pull it to the surface. Once there, our dehumidifiers collect the moisture, and ports out of the room. This process repeats until the room has met the drying goals established by our techs. Afterward, we clean and disinfect to ensure the home is sanitary for habitation.
