How Professionals Perform Flood Damage Restoration In Minneapolis
Flood Damage Restoration
It is a traumatic experience when you experience flood damage in your building. Despite that, the only option of returning your property to its preloss state is putting in place appropriate restoration measures. Before we enter any flood-damaged structure, we check for structural damage and our team never assumes that all roofs, overhangs, and roofs are safe. We then go ahead and turn off electricity, gas, and any present fuel taps in your Minneapolis property.
Removing mud and standing water from your flood damaged Minneapolis home is the next step that our SERVPRO technicians perform. We are careful during this process so that the water pressure does not impact the structure. We remove the mud through shoveling and clean the area using a hose. To ensure the building's loading remains even, we the mud that is outside and inside the walls in stages.
Our SERVPRO must clean and disinfect the affected surfaces. We scrub the dirt off surfaces using detergents and water. If we come across materials like clothes, furnishings, and foodstuffs which were in contact the floodwater, we place them in plastic bags ready for disposal. After cleaning, it is time to introduce drying procedures.
When drying the building, we can decide to increase the air movement over the wet items or surfaces. We use air movers during this step. Another way of enhancing drying is by introducing heating equipment. Even when the building's heating system is not working, we can introduce a secondary heat source to achieve the necessary drying conditions. In cases where it is only a small section of a floor or wall that need drying, we perform target drying. Before performing target drying, it is vital to contain the wet area using plastic sheeting. Target drying is also useful when we are drying building materials that have low permeance.
