SERVPRO Completes Flood Damage Restoration in Raleigh Homes
Can SERVPRO Repair Concrete Floors in Raleigh After Flood Damage?
There are many different flooring types in Raleigh homes, and flooding can impact each one differently. Floodwaters may contain bacteria and viruses along with sand and silt, leaving deposits inside your home after it has flooded with water during a storm.
SERVPRO can assist with flood damage restoration of all types of flooring materials in Raleigh homes. The most important concept to remember is quickly removing water and debris, cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces, and drying the house to remove all humidity. Failure to act quickly can lead to mold colonies, warped or buckled hardwood flooring, delamination of carpets, and loss of structural integrity of the subfloor. SERVPRO responds in less than four hours after your call to begin cleaning and restoring your home.
Concrete floors may flake or blister and require repainting once the concrete has dried. All surfaces must be cleaned to remove dirt and deposits before repainting. Allowing the concrete to dry correctly avoids chalk-like calcium deposits from water wicking from the concrete.
Hardwood floors absorb moisture causing cupping or buckling of the floor. Wood strip flooring may loosen and form hills and valleys on your floor. Carpet over hardwood floors should be removed to avoid damage to the hardwood floor. Carpets should be dried to prevent delamination and mold formation. Particle board, plywood, and oriented strand board absorb moisture at different rates. Plywood may delaminate, and particle board materials may disintegrate.
