Flood damages should incite an immediate response from a homeowner.

The Risks Of Flood Damage

As a resident in Richwood, you are familiar with the kind of disastrous weather that rears its ugly head throughout the spring and summer months every year. While your home was built to withstand a lot of this onslaught of high winds and torrential rainfall, even the smallest of vulnerabilities over time can lead to catastrophic failure at the worst possible time.

If your roof loses shingles or suffers a hole from falling debris or tree limbs, water can flow into your home instead of running to the gutter system surrounding it. Within a brief period, this invading water can saturate through the attic space of your Richwood home and lead to even more extensive flood damages throughout the second or first floor of your house.

In these unfortunate circumstances, you need to act quickly. The faster that our SERVPRO professionals can react to the problem that you experience, the better we can manage the damage. Mitigation can save you money and time spent in intricate restoration work, not to mention that it can help us to prevent further damages throughout the house as well.

Our SERVPRO technicians can also help you to avoid the risks associated with a flooded house. Extraction and drying efforts are critical in the restoration of this damage, and failure to do this adequately leads to weakened materials and mold growth.

Often in flooding situations, materials get oversaturated and begin to be too heavy to remain where they should be. Ceiling materials and framework are among the areas most susceptible to this kind of failure, but it can also occur with flooring and walls as well. This really illustrates the importance of skilled and experienced professionals working to restore the damage in your home, as it can often be challenging to determine when materials are most at risk of falling or breaking.

Flood damages should incite an immediate response from a homeowner. The faster our professionals get to work, the faster you get a restored home returned to you. Give our SERVPRO of Monroe / West Monroe water damage restoration technicians a call today at (318) 345-5121.
