SERVPRO Helps with Flood Damage to Flooring in Redington Beach
Different floorings require different approaches when cleaning flood damage
While different disasters have different consequences for homeowners in the affected area, flood damage in Redington Beach almost always causes some amount of damage to flooring materials in local homes. With torrents of water flowing over materials and construction never designed or intended to weather such conditions, types of flooring ranging from carpeting to wood to tile can all incur substantial damages. Reversing these effects most often requires the help of a professional restoration company like SERVPRO that can handle both restorations and replacements of the sensitive materials that make up most homes.
Flood damage impacts different types of tiled floors in Redington Beach in different ways. Small tiles typically require more grout per square foot than larger varieties, necessitating a change-up of cleaning strategies to handle the incident without taking too much time. Larger tiles, on the other hand, may be more prone to breaking, cracking, shattering, and retaining scratches than small tiles when objects and debris run over them. We analyze the materials, size, and patterns of any tiled surfaces in your home to create effective and optimal restoration plans for them.
Carpet floors often require significant replacement and restoration efforts even after light flooding. The soft fabric and padding that make up most of the floor space can warp, stretch, shrink, and become discolored when inundated with water. While we attempt to salvage any materials we can, many cases of flooding require us to install entirely new materials and perhaps even base features such as tack strips.
Wood, like tiling, can often incur different types and amounts of damage depending on thickness, pattern, type of wood, finishes, and many more factors. To get in a deep clean without harming the wood or its finish, specialized cleaning products and equipment like those used by SERVPRO are the only practical course of action. We must also take care to control warping, bending, and breakage in the floor, which can occur without careful monitoring of environmental conditions and appropriate countermeasures.
