Water Damage to Wood Flooring

Water Damage to Wood Flooring

Pictured is the home of an Athens, Georgia resident.  The wood flooring in her home was unable to be dried in place, so demolition of the flooring was performed.  SERVPRO of Athens removed the flooring and set drying equipment to dry the structure properly so as to prevent mold from spreading.

During heavy rains and storms flooding occurs.  When the water rises to a certain depth within a structure it may be necessary to perform a flood cut.  Here you can see where we assisted a resident that had an enormous amount of rising water.  SERPVRO of Athens performed a flood cut and cleaned the debris and removed it from the home.  We then set drying equipment to further dry the structure.

Recently Athens, Georgia has been experiencing an abundance of floods due to rainwater.  Rising water is not clean water and can bring many contaminants into your home.  Mold spores are often left behind and travel throughout your structure rapidly.  It is imperative that you dry your structure properly in order to reduce the risk of mold growth.
