Early Repair Steps for Your Damaged Home
To avoid any long-term damage, it is crucial to ensure the building is completely dry before any permanent repairs are carried out. This process may take several weeks after the initial damage. Still, it’s essential to prioritize thorough drying before any repair work to prevent further harm. You can look to RCC to:
- Check the electrical: Before turning the power back on, we have a licensed electrical contractor check your electrical system for safety.
- Check the heating and cooling: If you suspect that floodwaters have damaged your heating and cooling system, we can check the entire HVAC system for compromised components.
- Replace all damaged flooring: Damaged flooring, including laminate, hardwood, carpeting, and tiling, must be removed along with the subfloor. Laminate and hardwood floors will absorb water, causing swelling and warping, including their subfloor.
We remove all water-damaged carpeting and underpads, especially if they contain natural fiber. If the carpet is synthetic, it won’t provide food for mold, but the subfloor (likely wood or OSB) will be soaked. Removal is often the only credible solution to create a stable base for reconstruction and remodels.
