Flooding can contaminate materials and oversaturate porous building elements, requiring removal.

Natural flooding can be destructive to yourDurhamhome's exterior walls, and interior surfaces can become exposed to contaminants and debris. In many situations, the only solution for repairs and restoration after a flood is controlled demolition.

Can Controlled Demolition Help Durham Homes?

The presence of standing water makes flood damage in Durham homes a significant challenge for restorers. Natural flooding introduces bacteria and other contaminants to the house from substances rising water encounters and decaying organic matter.

Controlled demolition is often a suitable solution to this situation, as exposure cannot usually get overcome with surface cleaning strategies. The faster these controlled demolition efforts can begin, the less widespread this need becomes by managing the loss incidents. Material removal is beneficial for the property in multiple ways, including:

  • Access with advanced drying tools
  • Access to damaged plumbing
  • Decontamination

Flooding can be a substantial contamination concern for area homes, making controlled demolition a critical process. Our SERVPRO of North Durham team contractors can help when you call (919) 467-0880.
