Should I Worry About Flooding if I Have a Concrete Block Largo House?
Yes, Every Type of Largo Home Can Suffer From Flood Damage
As a Florida resident, you understand that you have a high probability of encountering a flood at some point, especially during intense summer storms or even named hurricanes. Homes in Largo typically do not have a basement like homes in northern states. However, being at or below sea level increases the overall flooding risk. Concrete block homes may not have as much visible damage from floods, but there can be underlying issues, especially when they go undetected.
How Can I Tell if There is Damage in My Concrete Block Home?
SERVPRO Uses State-of-the-Art Moisture Sensor Technology to Detect Hidden Moisture
Navigating flood damage to your Largo home can be difficult if you have never experienced a home disaster. This seemingly catastrophic event may be amplified if the damage is not readily visible. Concrete blocks are thick and allow for moisture to fall into cracks, and behind walls easily. There is the potential for excess moisture to rest for long periods. Property owners may only sense a problem when secondary damage, such as unwanted mold growth, appears.
What Processes Do Technicians Use to Mitigate Further Damage in My Home?
• SERVPRO removes excess category three flood water with portable and truck-mounted extraction equipment.
• Technicians use industrial-strength air movers to direct air behind the drywall and into the concrete block cavities.
• Restoration specialists remove excess moisture through the use of dehumidifiers containing HEPA filters.
