Fast Action Amid Flood Damage To Your Monroe Residence

Monroe Flooding, with the Right SERVPRO Equipment, Gets Dried Out Fast

Rely on SERVPRO for Rapid Water Extraction after Storm Damage

As many homeowners in the Monroe area know, severe weather can strike the region any time of the year. While multiple homes became reinforced in construction to handle the taxing force of many of these systems, these solutions have rarely been foolproof, especially after the house ages for a while. Over time, mortar in the joints of blockwork commonly used for the construction of foundations and basement walls degrades and weakens. This degradation eventually allows water on the outside of the house, even apart from literal flooding in the region, to find its way into the lowest levels of your home.

While this might not be an entirely surprising scenario to many homeowners, flood damage in your Monroe home is something that you should work to take care of immediately. Not only does pooling water weaken structural components as it stands, but it can also cause irreparable damage to anything you might store in the basement or contents of this affected area.

From the moment that our SERVPRO team arrives at your home, our priority is working on sealing up the vulnerable areas which have allowed the water to push through the walls. Often this process gets accomplished with the use of hydraulic cement. Once the water penetration gets resolved, our professionals can get to work on extraction. Under severe situations, the homeowner may need to hire a structural engineer to scope out the proper repair plan.

The extraction and drying process is often the most critical to the restoration process. Extraction typically uses portable pumps and wet-vacs. Significant volumes of water could require a pump truck from our SERVPRO fleet. Drying is often a combined effort of air movers and dehumidification equipment. Often specialized tools are also necessary to access and dry areas beneath the floors, or inside of wall cavities.

While many of the homeowners in the region are not unfamiliar with the possibility of flooding, it is not something that anyone wants to experience in their own house. Our SERVPRO of Monroe / West Monroe water damage restoration technicians can help you to overcome all of the obstacles between the current condition and a fully restored home quickly, whenever possible.
