SERVPRO Helps Clean or Remove Materials during Water Damage Remediation

Storms and flooding cause significant damages to the interior and exterior sections of properties. Restoring preloss conditions requires proper handling of various materials in the affected areas of the building. Otherwise, problems like moisture damage and contamination can be challenging to address.

When planning to handle flood damage in Hampstead homes, SERVPRO crew chiefs first thoroughly inspect an entire property to establish the affected materials and the type of damage they have. Such information helps determine the best course of action, including salvaging or removing the materials.

Various actions help when dealing with a flood-damaged property, including:

For porous materials affected by groundwater, demolition provides a viable solution to eliminate contamination. Removing materials can cause other problems such as affecting the structural stability of your house, affecting utilities such as plumbing and electrical systems, or even creating physical hazards for occupants.

Demolition to remove unsalvageable materials primarily focuses on:

  • Flooring materials such as carpets and pad
  • Trim such as baseboards
  • Ceiling and wall materials

Our SERVPRO teams work diligently to guarantee proper removal and safe handling of the debris. When removing carpets and pads, we take steps to cut the affected material into small square pieces that easily fit in trash receptacles, thus effectively moving them out of the way. Different tools, including various saws, rubber hammers, and pry bars, help ease the removal process.
