SERVPRO Technicians can Quickly Remediate Damage Caused by Flooding in Your Home


When people hear about flooding, they often think of acts of nature, such as rivers that overflow their banks. This is not always the case, and flooding can happen because of sources inside the home.
 
Belleair Beach has beautiful homes that are just as vulnerable to flood damage as homes that are more ordinary. This type of disaster can affect any home but is easy enough to prevent from happening. While a lack of maintenance involving appliances is often to blame, forgetting that water is running in a tub or sink can also create flooding in a home.
 
Flooding caused by overflows typically involves clean water, but that same water is also often rather warm. Increased temperatures can increase the damage that results. Warm or hot water dissolves tea, coffee, and sugar more quickly than cold water can. Warm tub water or hot water from the sink can more easily dissolve the glue that holds the flooring down to the underlay.
 
Flooring is not the only thing that can bubble and come loose. Cabinetry in the area can also become damaged by flooding in kitchens and bathrooms. Laminates can become sticky, peel, or bubble and flake off. Composite structures can swell as they absorb water, and become warped as they dry unevenly.
 
Even for small overflows, the possibility of contamination is high when kitchen and bathroom cabinets hold cleaning supplies. Combinations of cleaners and other items can increase the amount of damage. SERVPRO's technicians know how to handle complicated messes, including those that start out small.
 
Flooding disasters come in all sizes, but you should not let smaller floods trick you into thinking the damage they can cause is too insignificant to concern you. Flood damage can also include electrical damage. While outlets are often placed in higher locations in these two rooms, water that flows out and down can affect wiring and outlets in other areas of your home.
