When Your Wilmington Home’s Foundation Allows Flood Damages

Storm Damage When Your Wilmington Home’s Foundation Allows Flood Damages If you find your home was unprepared for severe weather, call SERVPRO to help restore your home "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO’s Trained Teams Act Fast to Restore Your Home after Flood Damage

While Wilmington homeowners are not strangers to severe weather, especially throughout the winter months, yet homes get impacted in disastrous ways by this inevitable force all the time. One of the ways that homes most often get affected by these severe weather systems is through flooding, either widespread throughout the region or localized from house to house based on which residences have compromised construction and vulnerable penetration points for water to pass through.

You might not even realize that these vulnerable points in your home's construction exist until you get posed with a potential flooding situation happening outside. This event tests the mettle of your foundation and makes short work of any weaknesses that could exist in the mortar joints, the block themselves, or in the footer beneath your home. Within a short period, all of these penetration points can allow unabated water to access the inside of your house, posing considerable flood damages to your Wilmington residence.

Fortunately, SERVPRO is always available to help you even amid a crisis. When you call our emergency response team, we work to dispatch a team of experienced technicians quickly to help avoid prolonged exposure of this pooling water to structural components of your home. The longer that these materials get exposed to the standing water, the weaker and more compromised they become, in some cases requiring removal and replacement for the restoration to get deemed successful.

As you might have guessed, extraction is a vital component of the flood restoration process. No other facet of our restoration can occur until the standing water gets removed via pump trucks from our SERVPRO fleet or wet-vacs with extraction wands. Once this process gets completed, our team can get to work on thoroughly drying the area and assessing the stability and strength of the structural components of your home that could be in jeopardy.

Flooding might not be entirely uncommon for the area, but it is still something challenging to contend with in your home That is why you should trust in the reliability and experience of our SERVPRO of Windham & Windsor Counties professionals to help you remove the water and clean up the mess. Give us a call anytime you need us at (802) 674-8004.
