Fresh Water Damage Cleanup
As an industry standard, all flooding water must be surface extracted and removed from all wet content and building materials. Fresh water left beyond 24 hours should be disinfected from unwanted fungi and, when necessary, followed up with structural drying. This often involves removal and disposal of damaged pad and carpet, while attempting to salvage most carpeting. Wet floors, especially hardwood flooring and sub-floors are always extracted, air-dried and dehumidified in an attempt to salvage costly building materials. In most instances, wet drywall will dry out on its own or with drying equipment, but in some instances fungi are known to habitat inside wet drywall, studs, insulation and other wet building materials. If fungi becomes a building or occupant health concern, SERVPRO of High Point will ask the customer for written permission to open wet wall cavities in an attempt to clean, sanitize, and replace damaged building materials. Our main goal is to always keep the customer informed during every step of the process.
