Storm Damaged Room in Lone Mountain
Stormwater can cause large and expensive messes after pushing into a home in the Lone Mountain area of Phoenix. The Black Water, containing unknown but present contaminants, must be removed along with the soaked, porous drywall. SERVPRO technicians are trained to dispose of these potentially hazardous materials according to EPA and local codes, if more stringent. The flood cut minimizes the needed demolition thus limiting the replacement of the building element. The old and worn carpet and padding cannot be salvaged under these flooding conditions, and so the pad can be prepared for a new, oak wood floor. The concrete must be dried over some days to ensure that no trapped moisture can cause future buckling to the new floorboards.
