Restoring Flood Damage To Your Kaneohe Home

Restoring Flood Damage

Severe weather is not always the cause of flooding. As you well know, those who live in Kaneohe experience over 37 inches of rainfall on average every year. When you have instances where much of this rainfall is happening in short proximity, the ground is unable to keep up with absorbing the water, and this causes water levels to rise and flooding to occur all over the island. While many in the area have sufficiently waterproofed their home, and taken preventative measures against the possibility of this disaster affecting the inside of their homes, no plan is entirely full-proof.

Depending on the measures taken, and how long ago they got taken, your Kaneohe home could still be at risk for this natural disaster to impact your lower levels. Foundations that were improperly constructed or not adequately waterproofed with drain systems around the house are the most likely of culprits to experience degradation of their foundation over time. Once water has even the smallest access point, it is a short while before larger cracks can form from water flow through the block.

The problem is, most people are not aware of a dire situation until the damage has already happened. If you are currently staring at a flooded basement or lower level of your residence, professional restoration services can help to bring your home back to its original state. In fact, our slogan “Like it never even happened” is a testament to the thorough and detailed work that our technicians do to restore flood damages to your home.

The primary focus of our SERVPRO team is extraction and prevention of further damages. When we first arrive, the team locates the source of the flooding and seals off the cracks and holes to prevent water penetration altogether. Extraction begins around this same time, utilizing pump trucks from our fleet to efficiently pull all of the water from the area quickly. The drying process is the next step, which uses both dehumidification equipment and air movers to dry up the region. Once this gets completed, our technicians can assess any lingering damages or structural weaknesses attributed to the flooding incident.

Our focus is bringing your home back to the condition you recognize and helping to ease your mind and walk you through our restoration process through every phase. The SERVPRO of Kailua North / Laie team is available 24/7 for any emergency restoration needs you might have. You can reach us at (808) 235-5015.
