Faster Response Helps Limit Flood Damage in Laconia
Limit Flood damage with the help of SERVPRO
Even a simple flooding incident can have a significant impact on your home. One way to minimize the effects of flooding is starting mitigation efforts early. Even though flooding may fill a house with water in a few minutes, some aspects of the resulting damage take time to develop. For example, mold takes 24 to 48 hours to start developing. Staining and rust may happen faster, but not within minutes. Part of our professional flood mitigation strategy is a faster response when called to help affected Laconia homeowners.
Some steps carried out early enough can prevent some aspects of flood damage in Laconia. If the flooding is caused by water from clean sources such as rainwater leaking into the house, it is possible to save contents such as carpets and upholstery, unlike cases involving contaminated groundwater. However, failure to react fast enough can lead to permanent damages such as stains from furniture items and colored fabrics such as area rugs resting close by. Our SERVPRO technicians help save your contents from damage through staining by moving any items that may cause stains.
Fast response is not a perfect solution for every aspect of flood damage. However, it is possible to reverse some of the adverse effects before they cause permanent damage. For example, our SERVPRO technicians work on any stains found on upholstery or carpets while the items are still wet because removal is easier at such a stage. Also, water extraction and drying help reverse swelling or other related problems affecting wooden materials.
Microbial growth poses a serious threat after a flooding incident. Microbes develop when water is left to sit over extended periods. Most flooding incidents also involve groundwater, which has various contaminants, including biohazards such as raw sewage, which increase the risk further. Sanitizing the affected areas is essential for the safety of the occupants. Our SERVPRO technicians use professional cleaning agents with antimicrobial properties to stop or limit the growth of microorganisms.
