Water Damage Restoration Services You Can Trust
Living near the coast in Madeira Beach presents residents with a breathtaking view and captivating lifestyle. Unfortunately, it also comes along with a variety of issues unique to the area. Flooding, for instance, causes all of the regular damages, as well as those that often accompany salt water.
With all of the different hurricanes hitting our coastal cities, many people in Madeira Beach have water damage on their mind. These weather systems often pick up water, debris, and other materials from miles out, creating potentially dangerous, more expensive, and more difficult repairs due to salt exposure.
Saltwater is a highly reactive substance because it carries an electrical charge. This charge allows salt to penetrate a variety of materials quickly, causing corrosion to structural components, wiring, and building materials. SERVPRO technicians clean these items using additional fresh water to rinse salt water from the area and then use the proper drying equipment on everything accordingly.
In most cases, the electricity for the building is shut down. Allowing SERVPRO technicians the opportunity to apply fresh water to exposed wiring, painstakingly testing the integrity of the electrical system after removing salt and drying the entire area. Many electrical components can corrode and rust, preventing proper usage. If left untreated long enough, the wiring in your walls, electrical box, as well as any appliances or electrical devices left in the home all require replacement.
You may think that your concrete, foundation, pilings, sidewalks, and structural walls are safe. However, salt water can penetrate concrete, eat into metal reinforcements, and slowly break down these materials over time. Structural problems can occur long after the event, SERVPRO checks brick, mortar, and plaster structural components that help prevent instability years later.
As always, any untreated areas also have the potential of developing mold, where our professional technicians take the time to address these areas accordingly and always attempt to return your home to a quality condition that you and your family can enjoy.
