What Few People Know About How Flooding Can Affect Your Nashua Home
Quick Response Begins Flood Drying Processes in Drenched Nashua Properties
The aftermath of stormy weather finds many homes soaked on the inside because saturated ground creates areas of standing water. Forced downhill, this water often ends up entering homes in Nashua and surrounding areas.
When we respond to a homeowner's call in Nashua about flooding, drying out the home in every affected area becomes our priority. Leaving any section damp only leads to future problems. Hence, we always load our Green Fleet with the latest in equipment and tools.
We cut away damaged areas of drywall and open walls up so we can dry the beams and section of flooring inside the walls. Our air movers can pull moisture out of wooden support beams and get them dry rapidly, and this cuts down on additional warping. Many times, our flood drying efforts result in slightly warped beams correcting themselves.
Floors always become saturated during a flood, and concrete slabs are no exception. Because concrete is so durable, it might seem impenetrable. However, concrete can absorb a significant amount of water. Because the pores in concrete are very small, it holds onto moisture. More porous materials like wood easily release moisture and dry relatively quickly. We apply heat to floors, including real wood flooring and concrete slabs, to make evaporation happen more rapidly.
The moisture that our air movers pull out of different materials throughout a flooded home ends up in the air. SERVPRO specialists set up air movers to push moist air out windows, as well as desiccant machines to extract water vapor from the air. During the entire process, we measure the moisture content in selected materials and compare the readings as our work continues to baselines that we gathered when we first arrived and began the process of drying out your home.
SERVPRO of Nashua is ready to help protect your home with flood drying methods. These techniques have proven reliable and effective in many homes in the Nashua area and we can implement them in your property, also. Call us at (603) 889-2311 when flooding happens to you.
