7/6/2021 (Permalink)

Water damage in a attic with stairs leading down. Storm damage to an attic can create more complicated issues than you would think. Call SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties today.

SERVPRO professionals can work fast with leading drying and extraction tools for flooded Gatlinburg homes.

After severe storm events, flooding could impact Gatlinburg attics when water penetrates roof vulnerabilities. Quickly assessing and addressing these conditions is a priority of our responding SERVPRO team, offering effective mitigation solutions as soon as we arrive.

Advanced Extraction of Confined Spaces

Removing trapped water in the attic space can be a complex procedure for restoring flood damage in Gatlinburg homes. Often a flooded attic points to other structural concerns in the roof and building envelope, requiring efficient cleaning and extraction, but also repairs and reconstruction. Removing water from a confined space requires high-pressure pumps and attachments to reach challenging areas.

Efficient Drying Solutions for Damp Attics

Water removal is not enough to eliminate the possibilities of mold growth or structural degradation when moisture and damp pockets persist. With a solid floor in the attic space, one of the most efficient tools to help resolve trapped moisture in OSB board and plywood is floor drying mats. These can slowly draw out water until moisture levels are within acceptable and safe ranges. Additional drying equipment includes:

  • Air Movers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Portable Heaters

From water removal to drying your small attic space, our SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties team can help in many ways. We offer reconstruction and restoration services to suit the situation. Give us a call today at (865) 429-8885.
