SERVPRO Handles Two Floors of Severe Water Damage Restoration Services in Upper Cape Cod Home

There are numerous considerations that SERVPRO technicians must be aware of when handling water damage restoration in Upper Cape Cod properties. As seen in the video, the hardwood floors in this home's downstairs area had wide coverage of water. In cases like this, SERVPRO deploys numerous air movers and equipment for water removal services.  

Water Clean Up on the First Floor of the Upper Cape Cod Home  

The video shows the floorboards a large amount of drying equipment, including dehumidifiers. Luckily for this Upper Cape Cod homeowner, SERVPRO technicians could perform the necessary water removal services on the floorboards before seepage underneath into the subfloor or wicking into the sheetrock occurred. The stair treads and risers were also intact and, although still showing signs of dampness, did not get damaged beyond the point of repair. 

Second Floor Water Damage Remediation by SERVPRO in Upper Cape Cod Property  

When the video pans upstairs, it is apparent that severe damage has happened in this area of the home, and numerous water damage repairs will be needed once the water clean-up efforts complete. The Upper Cape Cod home's attic is where the water came from burst pipes around a water heater in an attic utility room. It is hard to imagine 30,40 or 50 gallons of water that the tank normally holds suddenly released into the home. 

Controlled Demo is Sometimes a Part of Water Damage Restoration in Upper Cape Cod Homes  

Viewers of the video see the swathe of damage left behind in the Upper Cape Cod home. SERVPRO technicians carefully perform controlled demolition on the ruined flooring and sheetrock throughout the second floor. As the camera pans around the work site, it is apparent that the second level of the home took on a huge amount of water that entered from the attic above. The property owner had the pipe break fixed while SERVPRO handled the water damage restoration services. 

Three Levels of Drying by SERVPRO in Upper Cape Cod Home  

When SERVPRO technicians deal with large-scale water damage restoration services in Upper Cape Cod properties, there are no delays to the water clean-up process. The technicians have access to a large amount of equipment, so multiple teams of SERVPRO technicians can extract water at the same time on various levels of the Upper Cape Cod property. Then for the drying phase of the water damage restoration services, air movers, air scrubbers, and industrial dehumidifiers get used on the attic, first and second floors of the home at the same time. In this way, SERVPRO can dry the entire structure at the same pace. 

This SERVPRO location holds a general contractor license which means the homeowner can schedule the needed water damage repairs to the floors, walls, and ceiling that needed removal due to deterioration from water exposure. It is not unusual for Upper Cape Cod homeowners to choose updated looks for the rooms that are rebuilt after the water damage restoration services are complete.
