The Challenges of Richwood Home Restoration After a Flood

While it might be customary for many Richwood homeowners to want to do their part in returning their damaged property to normal, this is not always practical or possible. After substantially damaging situations like floods, not only are there structural concerns to contend with that allowed the disaster into your home, but also the effects of the high volume of water on the property as well. With the full measure of all of the damage that your home could sustain during the ordeal, it is a wise decision to seek the experience and advanced equipment of our professional restoration team.

Many hurdles exist when overcoming flood damage in your Richwood home. From the initial inspection and damage assessment through the early mitigation tactics that ultimately save both time and money, homeowners lack the experience and professional equipment to perform these tasks alone. Our SERVPRO team can respond any time of the day to emergencies like floods with effective mitigation strategies that help later restoration efforts go more smoothly.

One of the most significant challenges that face our professionals when they first arrive at your flood-damaged home is the widespread effects of the flooding. If we did not get called immediately, saturation of exposed materials could lead to structural weaknesses and degradation, making even the assessment of the property a potentially dangerous task. Our team has a wide array of personal protective equipment and ongoing safety training to keep us safe while we assess the spread of the damage and what can get done immediately to preserve and protect unexposed areas of your home.

Another concern that should keep inexperienced homeowners from attempting cleanup and debris removal on their own is the need to extract and dry damaged areas thoroughly. Our production vehicles get stocked with our advanced equipment that can quickly remove excess water from flooring, but also an assortment of efficient drying machines and tools like air movers, drying mats, and dehumidifiers that can work to reduce overall moisture content in exposed materials to preserve them when possible.

Flooding can pose some challenges to a homeowner, but our SERVPRO of Monroe / West Monroe rapid response team can help. To make flood damage “Like it never even happened.” give us a call today at (318) 345-5121.
