Don't Panic If Water Is In Your Home After A Storm - Call SERVPRO (Part 2)
Controlled Demolition is Part of the Restoration Process
As scary as it may seem, part of the mitigation process may entail demolition. Our technicians may have to cut into the wall to remove all wet drywall and insulation that is behind it. Leaving wet drywall or insulation can lead to mold.
When contaminated water soaks into your carpet, it is almost always a loss. It is almost impossible to return the carpet to a sanitized state for reuse.
If any of your possessions are contaminated from the flood water that require disposal get documented, including photos to assist the homeowner in the filing of insurance claims.
How Do Wet Items in a Home Get Restored After Flood Damage?
Unfortunately, It depends on the material. Porous items after exposure to contaminated water rarely have restoration possibilities. Non-porous items can respond well to methods of cleaning. Immersion cleaning tend to have the most potential for a positive outcome. SERVPRO of Kankakee County techs have access to a wide range of cleaning products, including powerful biocides and antimicrobial solutions.
