Flood Damage can Ruin Some Items but not the Future for Crestwood, MO Homeowners

Carpeting will most likely need to be replaced after there's been flood damage in your Crestwood, MO home.

How Crestwood Household Items Can be Affected After Floods

Higher humidity levels are usually part of flood damage, often leading to the destruction of photographs and other types of memorabilia that might have escaped the flood itself. Having the water removed by our pump trucks will reveal not only a great deal of damage but also the solids left behind by the flood. These solids, such as silt, debris, and even garbage, will be removed by our technicians as we extract even more water with portable devices. Our goal is to make everything in your home feel “Like it never even happened.” To succeed, we must work quickly and be as thorough as possible.

Carpeting will most likely need to be replaced after there's been flood damage in your Crestwood, MO home. Carpeting is not designed to withstand saturation for even short periods of time, and while we may be able to remove the majority of contaminants and other solids, this does not guarantee that the carpeting can be restored to acceptable levels of cleanliness. Backing materials are especially prone to deterioration, and without a backing, your carpet will soon unravel, leaving you with a mess. It's important to know that if water-logged carpeting is left in place, this can create a barrier that retains moisture in the floor and greatly hinders the drying process. This can increase the risk of mold developing, also. Instead, we can install new carpeting, or another flooring of your choice, to prevent this from happening to you.

Drywall is also easily damaged by flooding, and at SERVPRO, we're excellent at removing damaged areas, replacing them, and then finishing the job with puttying, sanding, and painting. We listen closely to how you want things done, from start to finish, and this is no different. The color of paint and the type are up to you, as we know that you, the customer, are the one who will live with the results of our efforts. We want you to be more than satisfied with the final results.

When it comes to your furnishings, we're also experts at restoration in those areas. Restoration processes are designed to return your belongings back to their original state. This includes the initial water extraction and drying, followed by cleaning and sanitizing everything. This also helps with deodorization, but we know that sometimes it is not sufficient. Because of this, we can also apply different deodorizers throughout your home to combat lingering odors that cause discomfort to you and your family. We want your home to not only be clean but to smell clean, also.
