Dealing With Possible Restoration Challenges In Boxborough After A Flood Damage Experience

Though some places are easy to dry during flood damage restoration, it is not always the case in some areas. For instance, it can be challenging to access the HVAC ducting that is located in the attic or ceiling area and perform the necessary restoration work. Also, drying walls and floors behind the cabinets can take a lot of time. Our crew has the training and equipment to clean, dry, and restore such areas in your Boxborough home or business.

Our SERVPRO technicians have to clean and decontaminated the HVAC systems in your Boxborough property during flood damage restoration. We can quickly clean and disinfect sheet metal ducting, but we have to replace some form of ducting such as flex duct and coated fiberboard after exposure to black or gray water. The type of material the duct is made from determines the procedures we use when restoring HVAC systems. If it has fiberglass insulation, there are high chances of mold growth taking place if the situation is not attended to immediately. In such cases, we replace the fiberglass lining since the molds may lead to health effects.

The layers of drywall and cabinet back can slow the speed of drying the area around the cabinet. If the cabinet back is absent, our SERVPRO technicians drill holes into the walls to enhance the flow of air. In some situations, we use a vent system to force dry air through the wall cavities. Once the area is dry, we cover those holes. It is also possible to drill holes in the cabinet back and then use a similar material to patch them up at the end of the work. Drilling holes may lead to possible electrical and plumbing hazards, so we are careful about that and follow applicable regulations and laws. Also, we communicate with our clients before we can make the holes.

Our highly trained team at SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord responds immediately to all restoration emergencies, be it water, fire, mold, or storm damage. Call us at (978) 486-9868 when you need to work with a leader in the restoration industry.
