Maryland Flooded Basement Drying and Cleanup Services
An event like superstorm Sandy left many people’s homes flooded. Flooding affected the majority of the east coast and Maryland wasn’t left unscathed. To properly do repairs and restoration after a flood is really a job for someone who specializes in flood damage. Flood damage is very serious as flood damage can do long term damage to your home, and flood damage will get progressively worse as time passes if the flood damage is not addressed quickly. For example If you have hardwood floors, you can’t simply pump out the water and mop your floor dry and clean. In a flood situation, that water has permeated the wood and if it isn’t dried properly, the wood will rot, and you could get potentially dangerous mold. This is a problem many people don’t realize, that when they have flood damage, the damage can encompass more than what you can see.
It’s easy to conceive that things like carpeting and dry wall may need to be repaired or replaced when your home has flood damage. After all, you can usually see that damage simply by looking at it. Your dry wall may look buckled or even be falling apart in the area that was saturated with water from the flood. But did you realize that the wood studs beneath the dry wall could also have sustained enough damage to need repair and replacement. Wood is porous, and during a flood situation, water has usually sat for at least a short time, soaking into that wood. This could weaken the wood which will weaken the structure of your home. Other damage that you might not initially consider could be to plumbing and electrical wiring. There is also there is the possibility that the water has caused shortages in the wires which could present a fire hazard in the future. Likewise, the force of the flood could have jarred plumbing in some way causing unseen leaks. Trained professionals versed in flood and storm damage repairs know what to look for, and will find any and all damage done and ensure that your home is properly repair and restored.
