Why Flood Damage Severely impacts bedrooms in Fossil Creek
Common items affected by water damage in your home
Ground-floor bedrooms can be among the most heavily affected rooms in a home in Fossil Creek when flood damage hits. While sleeping areas on second floors may be safe from most of the effects of rampaging floodwaters, ground floor and basement bedrooms contain many amenities that may be more vulnerable to severe water damage than objects found in other parts of the home. SERVPRO excels in restoring materials without having to replace them whenever possible, but we still see some of our most challenging work cut out for us wherever bedrooms are concerned.
Flood damage in Fossil Creek can cause costly damage to sheets, mattresses, pillows, and any other parts of a bed. For some homeowners, these items can represent a combined total of thousands of dollars in value. One of the primary things we do after arriving and ask many residents to do before we get there is to separate pillows, sheets, and other layers from each other. Keeping these items separated out early on helps them to dry out faster and prevents color bleed from taking place.
Most local homes fill their bedrooms with carpeting and rugs that can sustain severe damage in the event of a flood. Storm floods typically cause warping, discoloration, and material degradation in both the upper layers of carpeting and in the padding below them. Depending on the conditions, we may be able to replace sections of carpeting while keeping other areas intact selectively, but most floods force us to replace flooring in carpeted rooms entirely.
Many valuable personal items are stored in the average bedroom, including electronics, clothing, objects of sentimental value, and a wide range of other possibilities. While some items may be lost forever after being inundated with water, others may yet be salvaged. We examine every damaged item individually to determine if and how we should attempt to clean and restore it.
