How Do I Fix My Home After a Flood?
There are a number of contractors in the area that specialize in home construction and remodeling services that are qualified to remodel your home after water damage from natural or man-made disasters but there are also some companies that specialize in both. Disaster Services can handle everything from water extraction, structural drying and cleanup to restoration or remodeling to mold remediation. When your home is saturated with water, mold growth can be a very serious concern and the contractor you choose should be proficient in mold removal and mold prevention.
Once your home has been properly sanitized and disinfected, and the drying process completed, your water damage restoration specialist will ensure that the interior of the home is completely dry and safe to begin making the necessary repairs. Once the moisture levels drop down to or below 16%, professionals can begin the process of replacing damaged flooring, drywall and other surfaces.
How Do You Rebuild a Flooded House?
Renovating a home damaged by flood water means more than just taking care of the structure. Other areas of consideration include the electrical systems. Some remodeling tips that can help you cut the costs of restoring your home after flooding include:
• Damaged doors made from metal or solid wood may be repaired. Hollow core doors should be replaced to avoid mold buildups and repair issues.
• Concrete floors can typically be dried out without issue; depending on the degree of water damage your hardwood floors may also be restored.
• If the insurance carrier is covering the damages caused by flooding to your home, work closely with your general contractor to ensure that the correct paperwork is properly completed. Disaster Services works with all major insurance carriers to take this headache and stress off your plate as well.
