Flood Cuts and How They Help Your Jerome Property
While many can appreciate their need for professional restoration after flooding occurs, Jerome property owners might not fully understand the needs of their house and why specific approaches are more beneficial than others. The better you can understand the restoration process for professionals like our SERVPRO team, the more you can appreciate each step in bringing your residence back to its preloss condition.
There are many steps involved in the recovery of flood damage in Jerome properties, but a misunderstood stage is the creation of flood cuts in drywall and paneling. While our technicians work to answer your questions and concerns as thoroughly as possible, our priority is drying out the damage to your house and making the home safe for you and your family. Flood cuts can help with this process.
This process involves removing a lower portion of the drywall or paneling in areas exposed to flood damage. The assessment of the extent of this damage goes beyond direct exposure and can include a wicking effect drywall has when the base of the wall is submerged. Hygrometers, infrared imagery, and probing moisture detection devices determine the spread of moisture and saturation from the base to the ceiling in damaged material. With a literal line of division between dry and damaged, marked with tape, the lower portion of the compromised wall, our SERVPRO team can work immediately in removing it.
There are multiple benefits to this approach, and it begins with access to damp wall cavities for direct drying efforts. By only removing a portion of a wall instead of entire panels of sheetrock, we can ultimately save money on both replacement materials and their installation after mitigation and immediate recovery work complete.
