Storm Damaged Home in Burlington
The stormwater soaked a portion of this lower level area in a Burlington home. The engineered flooring can soak in water and expand and warp in a short time. SERVPRO always suggests to homeowners to never delay in receiving professional and rapid help to remove the water and prevent secondary damage. We can vacuum up the liquid and, if necessary, remove some of the boards to dry the plywood subfloor. The heated air movers are circulating warm air to increase the evaporation rate. When dehumidifiers extract this water vapor, there is less exposure to wood trim work and contents. Less dampness means less absorption and preventing more damage. Sometimes, less is better than more. The goal is to restore and not replace storm-damaged materials. "Like it never even happened."
