Now Gone, but Hurricane Irma Continues to Damage Santa Rosa Beach Homes

Hurricane Irma, Water Damage in Santa Rosa Beach, and Why to Call SERVPRO for Cleanup

Water Damage from Tropical Storms Adversely Affect Santa Rosa Beach Condos

Hurricane Irma caused damage of such extent that estimates continue to rise. Winter residents who return often encounter damage inside their homes because the winds involved forced water into areas that otherwise seemed impenetrable.

This water damage in Santa Rosa Beach ranges from water left behind on floors to extensive and widespread microbial infestations. Woodwork such as moldings and floors sustain costly damage, as well, when exposed to moisture for lengthy periods. Even when they seem dry and safe for use, electronics and other appliances may require specialized care to avoid electrical shocks or harm. SERVPRO assists both full-time and seasonal residents with all of these situations.

When water remains undisturbed inside a home, a number of things begin to happen. Wood fixtures and millwork may require replacements instead of restorative work. Our specialists can help determine the best course of action for your home's contents and interior architecture. Flooring types such as linoleum can trap water underneath, leading to the rotting out of flooring structures, rendering them unable to sustain any significant weight. Highly unsafe, our flooring specialist works to ensure that your floors become safe again.

One way that the water spreads is through evaporation which takes place in different areas. By condensing in relatively colder areas of the home, moisture can reach locations that remained dry after Hurricane Irma left the area. Following the same route the moister air travels before condensation takes place, mold spores often land precisely where the highest concentrations of salt-free moisture lie. Mold infestations damage your home's interior by causing materials such as drywall to disintegrate. Health effects in more sensitive individuals can also cause concerns. Our Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) can perform the required work, leaving your home as it should be before your return.

 Because electronics play such a dominant role in the lives of most Americans, it might tempt you or others in your family to turn on TV sets or radios. However, playing it safe by having our partnered electronics specialist perform an inspection to rule out any possible problems can be a wise choice if you suspect internal water damage to your devices.
