Effectively Treating Flood Damage In Lilburn
Attics and Crawl Spaces Flood Work is a SERVPRO Specialty
There are many ways that flooding can affect your home. You hear all of the time about toilet fixtures overflowing, garbage disposals causing your kitchen sink drain to clog and broken pipes that flood an entire home, basement, or even your front yard. Flooding is nothing new, and as homeowners, it is your responsibility to prepare yourselves for whatever may come your way. Locating a quality company that offers both prevention and emergency response services to protect your home should be your first step.
Many of the technicians that we have available in Lilburn specialize in flood damage restoration. We can handle every aspect of the repair process, so you won't have to contact anyone else to perform additional detailed work after we finish our restoration process. It is our goal to leave your home and make it, "Like it never even happened."
SERVPRO technicians have extensive experience in dealing with leaks in attics and crawl spaces that are hard to reach and present even more difficulty when attempting to perform repairs. When a professional service provider finds it hard to work within confined spaces such as these, you should avoid trying to carry out these sort of repairs on your own.
We understand that water damages found inside of an attic come from various sources. A clogged condensation line on your HVAC system, broken humidifiers or ruptured water heaters. As well as damaged plumbing lines, sprinkler lines, wind damage to roofing materials, fallen branches or trees, ice dams that form on roof eaves, hail storms that damage your roof or other extreme weather conditions all add up to sources of damage to your attic.
When our SERVPRO technicians scope out an attic space, we examine every part of the construction of the roof. We need to determine whether the roofing material was damaged, if the destruction is temporary or permanent, how the roof decking material is affected and if the source of water caused the structural materials to become damaged.
In our experience, some attics can be easy to access, while others are entirely too small to get a person inside, much less the equipment it takes to perform the proper repairs. With high damage in limited space, it can be difficult to perform repairs.
SERVPRO technicians use specialized vacuums to remove and save your insulation for reuse. However, it is unlikely that wet sheetrock or plaster under the insulation remains restorable. The removal of insulation and sheetrock demolition creates a significant amount of dust, requiring us to use containment procedures to minimize cross contamination. You wouldn't want the dust traveling throughout your home.
