Castle Rock Flood Damage After A Storm
Storm and Flood Damaged Articles Are Inspected by SERVPRO
Cleaning up after a storm is never a simple task. Homeowners and residents in Castle Rock have to make tough decisions about throwing out what was once a family heirloom, but now is a pile of broken wood or twisted metal.
Making these and other decisions after flood damage to a Castle Rock home is difficult, but a trained and experienced restoration company can help. SERVPRO helps make those decisions by providing an honest assessment of a property item’s condition, an estimate of what it costs to restore a damaged item to its original state or if an owner needs to dispose of it and put their effort into what is salvageable.
We base these decisions on our experience with damaged property and the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) guidelines. Take a dining room set as an example. If the storm water ruined the finish on the legs, then the time to remove and refinish the legs to match the original shade and color is worth the time and supplies.
If the same table and chairs are under water long enough for the wood to begin warping, the cost to restore them usually exceeds replacing the items. If an insurance company is involved, then there is a predetermined amount to replace, and that is what gets processed. If the dining room set has been passed down through several generations, and the owner still wishes to attempt restoration, we can try. The final say if a questionable belonging is to be tossed or salvaged is yours and your insurance adjuster. Our SERVPRO technicians use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the legs and reverse the warping effects carefully. Once we have them back as close to their original shape as possible, we strip the last of the old finish. If needed, we sand down obvious defects to match the original shape and then apply a new finish to complete the job.
Our personnel is trained to IICRC standards when it comes to restoring your property. In those circumstances where the insurance company does not authorize the restoration of an item, preferring to replace it at a lower cost, it is our personal history with disasters in Colorado that allows us to examine tables, chairs, and appliances to determine what is worth saving.
