Tips to Help You Manage Costs When Restoring Flood Damage in Carson City
For Your Carson City Property, SERVPRO Aims to Mitigate Storm Losses while Reducing Expenses
The cost of fixing a flood-damaged property varies depending on the affected areas. For example, a roof leak that damages the ceiling in your Carson City property is much cheaper to fix than a flooded basement. The amount of water that flows into the property also affects the level of loss. If the water is less than 4 inches deep, it is likely to cost you less than half what it costs if the floodwater reaches over 9-inches. An inadequate response can also exaggerate the overheads, which is why you should consider working with a professional restoration service.
In cases of flood damage in Carson City, you have probably heard that speed is critical. However, safety is also a vital part of the restoration process and not just for your wellbeing. For example, before entering your water-filled house, you must turn off the power. Using any affected appliances is also out of the question to avoid damaging them further. Before our SERVPRO technicians begin restoring your property, we do a thorough inspection to find out whether there are any hazards or items at risk of further damages.
Time being money might sound like a tired cliché, but when you have to put up in a different place such as a hotel as you wait for the restoration of your home to end, it is easy to equate every passing day with money lost. Completing the process faster can save some of this money. By combining proper training, the right equipment and experience handling similar situations, our SERVPRO technicians can help make your home habitable within a reasonable period.
Sometimes in a bid to reduce expenses, you might be tempted to take shortcuts. Actions like drying wooden floors without removing the floorboards to the reach moisture below them fall under this category. The problem with doing the job halfway is that other problems arise later. In the case of moisture left below wooden planks, problems like warping, rotting, and cupping develop. Unfortunately, the process of correcting these problems is higher than it would cost to get rid of the moisture. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on specialized equipment such as the Injectidry system and drying mats to extract moisture below hardwood floors without removing them.
