How Can One Address Hidden Damages After Flood Damage in Little Rock Homes?
SERVPRO Focuses on Early Identification to Increase Chances of Prevention
Flooding and storm damage is readily identifiable. It is rarely difficult to tell which part of your home needs attention after a flooding incident, from torn roofs, shattered windows to inundated floors. However, some hidden issues might also develop, and unless the restoration team is thorough, they might remain unresolved after dealing with the main aspects of flood damage.
Hidden issues following flood damage in your Little Rock home can be tied to factors such as the intensity of the flooding, the layout of the property, or the time taken to start the restoration. A hidden problem may start as something minor then grow into a serious concern over time. For instance, you might pay little attention to beads of moisture collecting on the ceiling or wall surfaces because of condensation if the floor is still submerged. SERVPRO crews are trained to take a general approach rather than focusing on one aspect of flooding at a time, so it is harder to miss such issues.
The most likely forms of hidden damage might include:
- Rotting structural elements
- Corrosion of metals
- Mold development
- Foundation shifts
After water inundates your property, it can find a way into wall and floor cavities, thus exposing crucial structural supports. Even small amounts of moisture left unaddressed can lead to severe rotting in the long term or mold in the short term. Our SERVPRO crews use thermal cameras to locate moisture trapped in concealed areas after extracting flood water from your home. The inspection is fast and non-invasive since there is no need to tear down the areas of concern. We also check for physical changes such as cracks or stuck windows that would indicate foundation problems.
