The Most Important Elements of Storm Damage Remediation in Sevierville
SERVPRO Tackles Flood Damage in a Sevierville Home Gym
Flood damage can be catastrophic in scale, even if the depth of the water is shallow. All it takes is two inches of flooding to cost tens of thousands in damages to any structure. On top of that, floodwaters bring in contaminants from other areas that can cause health effects without thorough and professional removal with commercial-grade materials.
If your Sevierville home requires flood damage cleanup, Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification IICRC-certified professionals from SERVPRO are only a phone call away. We can provide service that strives to restore your home to a pre-flooding condition. Technicians are available any time of the day or night, including on weekends and holidays, to ensure that homeowners affected by disaster get the service they need whenever they need it. After all, emergencies do not occur on a typical 9-to-5 schedule.
Flood Resistance & Resilience
When floodproofing your possessions and structure, keep in mind two categories of flood protection: flood resistance and resilience.
Resistance is the descriptor used to categorize methods of preventing water from penetrating buildings. This can include removable barriers on doors and windows, temporary seals on doorways, one-way valves on drainage pipes or toilets to prevent sewage backups, and sump pump systems.
Flood resilience, on the other hand, categorizes methods that ensure minimal water damage if water does penetrate your structure. This can include tactics like installing ceramic or stone tile instead of laminate or wood flooring, moving electrical sockets so that they are higher than 5 feet tall, using stainless steel or solid wood kitchens instead of chipboard, or replacing wooden window frames with UPVC.
How SERVPRO Saves the Day
When SERVPRO technicians come to your home, they can focus on removing unsalvageable materials and preparing structures and possessions that can be salvaged for drying and restoration.
If you have a home gym, for example, the carpet in the room may not be salvageable, but there is a good chance that your weights and nonporous exercise equipment can be cleaned and repaired. Electronic items like treadmills or recumbent bikes can also be restored, depending on their moisture exposure. SERVPRO technicians can coordinate with professional electronics restorers to minimize damage and ensure that electronic appliances and components can be used, whenever possible, after flooding has occurred.
