Drying After Flood Damage

These photos illustrate some basic methods for treating flood damage to a residential home. In most flood situations, the water that has come into contact with building materials contains a variety of organic contaminants. Because of this, we remove drywall that has taken on water to prevent any microbial or fungal growth. Following the removal of affected materials, we set drying equipment and treat the area. These images show some of the equipment that we use, and how we contain certain areas to concentrate airflow to facilitate more effective drying. If you have recently suffered from flood damage, or would like to know more about what we do, contact SERVPRO of Sussex County today.
