Fast Flood Damage Restoration In Trendy Downtown Knoxville

Often we remove padding as it is inexpensive to replace and its removal helps avoid mold growth and resaturation of the carpet.

Flood Damage Restoration

Beautiful views and a great location in the center of our vibrant city center draw urban pioneers to condos in the theater district. The elegant older buildings feature gorgeous updating and rehabbing that lets both the century-old woodwork and modern conveniences shine. If a plumbing fail or appliance malfunction floods your space SERVPRO has the answers.

19th-century grace meets the 21st-century master bath in an unfortunate way as flood damage afflicts your downtown Knoxville condominium when the soaking tub overflows while you are out to dinner. The reclaimed hardwood floors and plush carpeting just outside the tiled bath swim in water. Our water damage restoration crews turn this scenario from certain disaster to complete recovery using the proper professional equipment and techniques.

SERVPRO arrives just hours after your call, ready to remove the water and assess the other damage. Speed is crucial in a flooding situation. The longer the water remains in your condo, the more likely it is permanent or secondary damage may occur. Our service trucks have industrial strength pumps and extractors that assist our trained technicians in swift and complete standing water evacuation. Even if power is temporarily unavailable in your home because of the flood, our truck mounted tools allow us to get the water out.

Harm to the hardwood and other flooring is limited if drying of absorbed moisture begins immediately after water extraction. Our crew uses special probes to establish a baseline that informs drying goals for both the visible wood floor and also the subfloor. The sub-layers below all of the floors, tile or hardwood, must dry completely or the residual moisture threatens to warp or otherwise damage the top layer. SERVPRO workers use air movers, dehumidifiers and drying mats to ensure moisture in all flooring reduces, confirmed by continual moisture metering. Sometimes special techniques are required, including raising or drilling through floor planks to release and gain access to hidden pockets of water.

Carpeting is restorable when attended to fast, and we make every attempt to dry it in place. Often we remove padding as it is inexpensive to replace and its removal helps avoid mold growth and resaturation of the carpet. SERVPRO technicians receive training in both carpet drying and reinstallation, paying careful attention to the tack strips made of pressed wood. Those hidden strips must be dry before the carpet is relaid, a challenge because they absorb water more quickly than the relatively impervious stained and sealed hardwood underneath or nearby.

SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville offers condominium owners rapid response times. If a tub overflows and your river-view home needs flood damage restoration call (865) 862-8907 for an inspection as soon as possible.
