Dehumidification >> Storm Damage

If your home has sustained a significant amount of Storm Damage because the roof was damaged and the rainwater leaked through. There is a certain procedure that should be followed to minimize the possibility of any other damage like the growth of mold or any other structural damage. Your home should be thoroughly cleaned to minimize the risk of any other bacteria that could put your family in jeopardy. Here are some useful tips.

  1. You want to begin by completely washing and disinfecting your Storm Damage walls, ceilings or any other cabinets and fixtures. By taking a cup of any household bleach mixing thoroughly to a gallon of water if a stronger cleaning agent is needed a half of a cup of detergent could be added giving it a foamier cleaning solution. Be sure to wear old clothing, you do not want the bleach to ruin your clothes and make certain to wear rubber gloves. To clean your walls always start at the top and work your way down. If you're walls are painted with a water-based paint, like a flat paint, this may damage your walls, taking the paint off with it, do not scrub too hard.
  2. Scrub the woodwork and floors using a rigid brush and plenty of a water mixture of disinfectant and detergent. If contaminated Storm Damage has soaked your carpeting it should be torn out and thrown away unless it is an expensive piece of carpeting, in this case it might be salvageable by taking to a facility where it can be sanitized. This may save you a considerable amount of money. If the edges of your linoleum flooring is starting to curl up it will need to be removed and discarded to allow the subfloor to completely Storm Damage.
  3. If you have wood floors and they are not warped already they will need to dry slowly, drying them to quickly could cause them to crack or split. Restoration companies use a technique of forcing air into the fluted underside of the hardwood floor boards to accelerate the drying time. Once the floors base has been completely dried you will need to determine if they can be recovered, repaired, or replaced. You'll have to decide which process will make the best economic sense, for example if your hardwood floors have sustained so much Storm Damage it may be wiser and more cost-effective to cover it using carpeting.
  4. The plywood that is used for your subfloor may have begun to separate due to excessive moisture causing warping. You will have to decide to either, replacing some of the sections with new plywood or covering with new plywood attached over them. A reputable contractor may help you to make this choice. If the flooring has begun to warp or buckle screws driven into the floor joist may pull the plywood sub flooring straight. Badly Storm Damage hardwood floors usually cannot be repaired and new flooring will have to be installed.
