Your Flood Damaged Home In Wilmington Can Be Restored By Our Experts
Sometimes The Best Outcome For Flood Damage In Wilmington Is Reconstruction
When intense storms bring flood damage to a home, a mere inch of groundwater brings devastation to both home and possessions. Water wicks quickly into sheetrock, and it buckles and warps quickly. When this happens, our practice is to remove the damaged building materials, and sometimes after extreme damage, the best outcome is prepping the property for reconstruction.
SERVPRO knows before any rebuilding or repairs from flood damage in a Wilmington home occur, the property must have the water extracted and thoroughly dried. Inspections for mold growth and odor control measures are vital as the rebuild of water loss areas cannot occur over mold or foul odors.
Why SERVPRO? We hold a residential and commercial contractor license, and we offer property owners the ability to utilize the services of a single company for both restoration and rebuilding. This takes the stress out of juggling multiple companies for cleanup and repair after a water loss. In preparation for rebuilding, we perform controlled demolition techniques and prepare the property with actions such as:
• Flood cuts to remove damaged sheetrock
• Removal of baseboards for cleaning and disinfection if unwarped
• Drilling weep holes in sheetrock for drainage as needed
• Cutting carpet and padding into strips for removal and disposal
Tracing paths of water migration and setting indoor humidity goals is an integral part of the drying process. Our technicians use measurements from unaffected areas of the residence or under fifty percent. We monitor the drying phase carefully and take measurements with our hygrometers to ensure the interior humidity levels are below optimum conditions for mold growth.
During the mitigation phase, we work closely with both the adjuster and the homeowner. We are careful to stay within the scope of coverage for both cleanup and reconstruction to ensure there are no surprise out-of-pocket expenses. Our experience is extensive having these General Contractor License, Residential Contractor License, and Commercial Contractor License. We always attempt to preserve and restore structural elements and contents rather than replace, keeping a keen eye out for our customers. When items have no restoration potential such as wet carpet and padding, we get approval from either the property owner or adjuster; we discard nothing without permission.
