SERVPRO Stops These Slow-Moving Effects Of Flood Damage In Charleston

Flood damage can impact your home in many ways. While it might be clear and evident that waters can scar your carpeting, walls, furniture, and other visible parts of the home, some types of damage can reach much deeper if you do not take care of them quickly. SERVPRO technicians remain on standby 24/7 to respond to local disasters since only a few hours can make the difference between a smooth, simple water cleanup and a large-scale flood damage restoration project for victims of a disaster. Here are some of the ways that more significant damages can creep into your home if you are not careful.

Foundational Damage
One of the most essential reasons to hire a fast and certified mitigation company like SERVPRO for flood damage in Charleston is to prevent damage from happening to the foundation of your home. With extended exposure to floodwaters, your home's foundation may start to crack and break, potentially leading to a separate repair project that costs thousands of dollars. These damages can almost always be avoided through fast and comprehensive drying solutions like those planned out by our work crews.

Breakdown of Materials
The longer moisture remains in your property, the more liable materials around the house are to begin breaking down and wearing thin as a result of the water soaked into them. We prioritize removing standing water and excess moisture in your home as one of the first things to work towards when we arrive at your home hours after the disaster.

Mold Growth
Without fast drying and special preventative measures, the risk of mold growth in your home can be high after a flood. SERVPRO technicians are always certified to prevent and treat mold damage before and when it starts to appear in your home.
