Our Flood Damage Specialists Can Restore Your Home In Columbus
Flood Damage Cleanup For Your Columbus Home
If your area in Columbus has experienced flooding, once the floodwaters have receded and you do not see apparent damage to your home, you may think you are all good. However, this is not likely, since water can create all kinds of problems which affects the integrity and safety of your structure in the long run.
Once a flood has occurred, you need the help of a professional remediation company to perform flood damage repairs in your Columbus home. SERVPRO can assess and restore your home promptly to help minimize any long-term problems due to water damage.
Water moves very fast through your home. Not only does this include pooling water, but it also means any dampness which can spread through the building materials and structure. There are numerous ways water can affect your home, including the growth of mold. Mold can begin growing within two days after the flooding has occurred, which is why SERVPRO techs move fast after you contact us.
We use a combination of moisture meters, moisture sensors and thermal imaging cameras to detect moisture in building materials, carpets, and padding, and to measure the level of moisture in various materials. These devices help us to find hidden moisture and to monitor the drying process, so we know when we have eliminated all the excess moisture.
If any ceilings, floors or walls have become saturated with water due to flooding, they are subject to rotting as well. Even if they seem to be drying out, we need to check them with our expertise and professional tools. You often cannot see the dampness, but it is still there, slowing eating away at your home’s building materials.
Electricity and water do not mix. When flooding has been severe, the electrical system of your home can be compromised, leading to blackouts or even short-circuiting and sparking a fire. Plus, any areas which are damp around electrical wires are hazardous, since water acts as a conductor of electricity and this raises the risk of being electrocuted.
SERVPRO of South Columbus wants to help get your home in Obetz, Grove City, or Bexley back in order after floodwaters have invited themselves inside. Give us a call at (614) 863-1392 as soon as the storm has passed so we can restore the mess before additional damage occurs.
