Can Flood Damaged Carpeting in Your Twin Falls Home be Salvaged?
Drying a Home Inside and Out after Flood Damage in Twin Falls
Floods can be caused by pretty much anything: heavy rainfall, natural disaster or internal plumbing issues. One consistent part of floods is that they are relatively unpredictable with local warnings sent out as little as a week before the damage occurs. They can also cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to your property and possessions. In the aftermath of a flood, you need a professional and experienced service provider to make the necessary reparations.
The impact of flood damage in Twin Falls properties is as much measured by what you cannot see as what you can. Standing water can cause permanent harm if it is allowed to saturate carpets, wall cavities, and subfloors. SERVPRO is one of the few restoration providers with the equipment and know-how to tackle all three.
Most local providers can bring in gas pumps or water extractors to help remove standing water from your property. However, water that permeates the structure of the home itself is much more difficult to remedy. SERVPRO use drying mats to help absorb water from beneath your floorboards.
Drying mats are advanced equipment laying over the affected area. By using a centralized pump to draw water from inside the floor itself, they ensure the structure is dry inside and out. Removing all moisture is essential after flood damage as any residual moisture can quickly become a cause for concern with secondary damages like mold growth likely.
Equipment is only useful in the right hands. SERVPRO technicians train extensively, and many hold IICRC certificates in applied structural drying among other qualifications. Carpets, for example, are up to 50% weaker when wet. Carpeted areas require removal so that they can dry on both sides. We then apply anti-microbial treatments before replacing them.
Going the extra mile is what has got us to where we are today. If you need a service that goes above and beyond, contact SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties at (208) 725-1447 now.
