An Appliance with a Broken Hose Soaks Your Home and Leaves it with Flood Damage in Cape Coral
SERVPRO Can Clean and Restore Flood Damage From Your Cape Coral Home
Appliances make our lives immensely easier than what we would experience without these modern conveniences. However, Cape Coral residents need to conduct regular maintenance checks on each one to ensure that problems remain minimal and caught before they can create damaging effects to the home.
Cape Coral homes can sustain extensive flood damage when a hose comes loose or breaks on an appliance. Tremendous pressure builds up inside these hoses, and the smallest crack or looseness in a fitting can spell disaster. Flooding happens quickly because as the water spews out of the hose, its speed is completely unchecked by the valves inside the appliance that once controlled the flow.
SERVPRO professionals understand that timeliness is crucial for protecting your home from flood damage after such an event occurs. Every aspect must flow with the other parts of the cleaning up and restoration of your home, so restoration happens as quickly as possible. Strong teamwork and experience working together make our professionals and the work they perform highly efficient.
Although the water from a hose or pipe comes out clean, contamination from cleaning agents kept near your appliance can contaminate that water. Contamination does not always mean the water is pathogen-laden. It can also include water saturated with chemicals which can pose health risks of another kind. Chemical burns from contact with water can send otherwise healthy individuals to the hospital for intensive care of their injuries.
Restoring a home with flood damage includes not only the removal of the water but also any of the contaminants present. Meters read the level of contamination in a given area and provide the information needed to ensure the complete removal of these chemicals.
Drying and repairing saturated materials begin when the standing water no longer poses a problem. Dehumidifiers and heaters, as well as air blowers, help dry the area out. Readings to determine if the air in other locations contain elevated amounts of moisture provide further details that help protect your home fully. When such readings reveal that water is present in additional locations, those areas received targeted attention, also.
