Flood Damage in Loudon Restoration - Little Things Mean a Lot
Complete Flood Damage Restoration in Loudon Homes
One of the hardest things about flood damage is the loss of treasured possessions to water. Sometimes things without a significant monetary value are priceless in terms of sentimental value. That is why on every restoration and cleanup job we do, we work with compassion and the application of our advanced restoration techniques to restore items whenever possible.
Acting quickly on flood damage in a Loudon home is the key to experiencing the least amount of water loss. The longer building materials and contents are retaining moisture, the less chance of full restoration to their preloss condition. A recent call to home involved a tree limb breaking a window and rain entered the corner space of a room. The homeowner was concerned only about a wet box of hand-typed recipes from her mother which she assumed was a loss.
Our SERVPRO technicians removed the box of papers and logged them for freezing in our facility. Freezing stops any further damage from occurring while the method of drying is decided on based on the condition of the document, expense, and restorability potential.
The broken window was sealed up until the homeowner could arrange to have it repaired and our technicians cleaned up the rest of the water in the area. We used moisture detectors to verify there was no residual moisture in wall cavities or the baseboard areas before the drying phase began. Air movers and dehumidifiers quickly dried everything in the area and then our technicians cleaned and sanitized all surfaces to leave it both clean and without any residual water odors.
The technicians determined for the type of paper and ink used that air-drying in small batches would be the best way to handle the recipe collection. Once it was completed, they were returned in their original box the very grateful homeowner.
