Structural Damage Can Result In Flooding To Your Bristol House
Flood Damage To Your House
When severe weather strikes your Bristol home, you can get a sense of all of the things that were potential threats that you did not take care of when you had the chance. Low hanging branches or weak looking trees have been the primary culprit to much structural damage to homes, but one thing that their looming presence might not always bring to mind: water penetration and potential flooding.
As if the significant amount of structural damage done to your home was not enough after the storm finally subsided, this same issue has likely allowed untold amounts of water to enter your home unabated. Flood damage to your Bristol home can often be the result of such unfortunate severe storm events, and some steps need to be taken quickly to help prevent even more substantial damage from occurring.
Once you have called our experienced and professional SERVPRO restoration team, we can start formulating our unique strategy specifically for your home to bring it back to how it used to be before the damage occurred. The first thing that our team does when we enter a storm damaged and the flood-damaged house is to board up broken windows and holes in your home to prevent further elemental exposure that could weaken structural components or compound on the existing problem and make it significantly worse.
Extraction of the water is paramount to the success of our restoration effort. In cases of substantial flooding, we bring out a pump truck from our fleet that can pull large volumes from the floor much more quickly than with traditional wet vacs and portable pumps that we might also utilize. Drying and dehumidification are next on the list, entirely drying affected structural components and the contents of your home.
While construction is not something that our team ordinarily gets involved with, we can thoroughly prep the storm-damaged areas of your home for a construction contractor. Ultimately, this process allows you to get your home back to its normal conditions much more quickly because you are not waiting for that same contractor to demolish areas in need of replacement.
If you are dealing with any flooding emergency, be sure to contact SERVPRO of Kingsport / Bristol. Our experienced emergency responders can be reached anytime at (423) 245-5552.
