Flood, Mud, Stormy Weather in Knoxville
The river rose, the floodwaters entered this home in Knoxville and severely damaged the hardwood flooring. The detritus and mud deposited by the flood required special cleaning and sanitizing to prevent the microbes from becoming a health hazard. Our SERVPRO techs donned their gear as per regulations and removed what is seen in this photo. We then used floor mat extractor extensions to suction out the hidden water between the joints and the underlying floor joists. It was critical to remove all the excess moisture to ensure a return to a pre-flood damage condition. The skill set and equipment utilized by our team members was crucial in achieving a successful conclusion to this flooding mess. The floors and baseboards look "Like it never even happened."
