Our Technicians Explain Our Flood Damage Restoration Process For Your Dallas Home
What Comes After Drying For Flood Damage In Dallas
Calling a SERVPRO team to your home in Dallas to help with flood damage is one of the initial steps you can take to a speedy and comfortable recovery from the disaster. Depending on the severity of the flood and storm, our work may take days or weeks to complete, but that process becomes drastically shorter if we arrive early to the scene and set up drying equipment within hours of the initial damage. After that initial response, you can expect some of the following processes to happen in your home.
One of the most consistent aspects of flood damage restoration in Dallas involves restoration or replacement of flooring materials in the flooded area. When floodwaters submerge carpeting, wood, tile, and other flooring materials, they can affect both finishes and basic construction of the material. Depending on the material damaged and the extent of the flooding, we may be able to re-finish existing materials and set them back into place. If replacements become a necessity, we take care only to remove and replace damaged sections of the floor.
Clothing and Fabric Washing
Clothes and some other fabrics in the home may be severely damaged by flooding. Most garments can be washed in our large bulk washing machines designed to decontaminate large masses of clothing at once. Clothes with more delicate materials may be dry cleaned, or hand washed through several specialized methods designed for flood damage situations.
Mold Prevention and Remediation
One of the toughest consequences of flood damage to prevent is the threat of mold growth. Many species of fungi thrive in the wet conditions created by flooding, and it may often be a race against time to stop the spread of spores in your home. SERVPRO technicians are fully certified to handle mold infestations if they do start to appear, and make the home look “Like it never even happened.”
