These 2 Items Can Get Damaged In A Flood
Mother Nature isn’t always pleasant and forgiving. Rather, sometimes, she can be a fickle beast that wreaks havoc on the world. For instance, storms can pop up in Southeastern Wisconsin that dump inches of rain in a short period of time. In turn, the ground can become waterlogged and stop soaking up the H2O. Then, when it has nowhere left to go, flooding occurs.
In the wintertime, nasty storms can present themselves, blasting this area with ice and snow. Sure, those elements can be fun to play in for a while. However, when the temperature outside heats up, they begin to thaw and melt. Once again, that can cause flooding, too, and water may get inside your home.
If your place starts taking on water like a sinking ship, it’s of the utmost importance to remove the substance from the picture as quickly as possible. But, of course, you might need more than a wet/dry vac and fan to get rid of it. That’s why it makes sense to leave the flood cleanup to the professionals.
At ERS we use commercial-grade tools to pump water out, remove liquid from under floors, and dry everything up. So, please, keep that in mind the next time something goes down, and do not hesitate to give us a call. Now, let’s examine some of the items around your house that could get damaged beyond repair if water is left to do as it pleases.
1. Wood Flooring
Many homes in this area have wood floors, and why wouldn’t they? Wood flooring is beautiful. The pieces add a touch of sophistication and class to structures. The material is also pretty easy to maintain and keep clean, which is always a plus. But, if water gets on such a floor and sits, boards can buckle and warp. That might not sound like a huge deal, but it can be because the floor can then pose a tripping hazard and have to be replaced. Talk about spending a small fortune. However, the fall issue and expense might be avoidable if you clean up floodwaters promptly.
When your house gets flooded, unless you can quickly get your furniture up and off the floor, there’s a good chance that the pieces will get damaged. Cushions and fabrics soak up H2O, like sponges, but for that matter, so do some types of wood. Getting a flood cleanup crew in the house quickly can minimize the damage and allow the furniture to dry out. However, if that isn’t enough, our company also offers restoration services. We can restore couches, chairs, and more to their original states.
