After Flooding, What Long-Term Flood Damage Are Stockton Homes at Risk of Having?
As Time Passes, Flood-Damaged Stockton Homes Could Develop All Kinds of Issues.
When Stockton residents experience a flooding event, they fixate on the immediately noticeable damage that often results. Given that the worst flood-related problems generally develop over time, if an impacted home is not properly remediated, this behavior is a bit misguided.
As the professionals at SERVPRO, a Stockton flood damage cleanup and restoration company, know, the initial impact of a weather-related event is often deceiving. Many homeowners struggle to eliminate the observable mess created but never even consider the unseen microbial threats lurking within contaminated floodwaters that could make their homes unlivable in the future. These microscopic bacteria, fungi, and parasites could eventually undermine the structural integrity of your house or apartment, discolor your home’s walls and ceilings, produce persistent and unbearably foul odors, and perhaps even cause health effects.
Some of the specific long-term effects of flood damage are:
- Dry rot that weakens walls and ceilings to the point of collapse
- Mold and mildew growths that discolor interiors throughout your residence
- Pervasive pungent smells that cannot be neutralized with everyday deodorizing efforts
- Health effects in residents and visitors
Fortunately, SERVPRO’s various service offerings help to eliminate these potential long-term risks. Our biohazard remediation efforts, including sewage cleanup services, serve to sanitize homes and reduce or eliminate harmful microbes. The rapid water cleanup and drying measure our technicians take serve to reduce the chances of dry rot and mold growth. Finally, our water damage repairs and interior deodorization help return your residence to its pre-flood level of livability.
