- Do I need general contractors?
- What causes mould in my home?
- The wood floors are wet and buckling. Will they have to be replaced?
There are some aspects of the restoration process that may require the services of general contractors such as drywall/painting; electrical; plumbing; roofing; framing/finish carpentry; flooring/carpet; installation of doors, windows, cabinets, post-construction cleanup, etc. ServiceMaster Restore offers full reconstruction services.
Excess moisture caused by leaks or flooding in your home — especially in typically damp environments like your kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms — creates the perfect breeding ground for mould or mildew. To control and reduce the risk for mould growth in these areas, you must properly maintain your plumbing system and monitor appliances that use large quantities of water, such as dish washers and washing machines. Small amounts of indoor mould are unavoidable and usually harmless. In damp environments, however, mould spores can more easily reproduce and cause more serious and difficult to remove mould problems.
Wood flooring in your commercial property that has been damaged by water must be continually evaluated by qualified technicians during the drying process. We use professional-grade drying systems and dehumidifiers to create the ideal environment for wood floors to dry efficiently, and optimally to resume their original shape. Depending on the density of hardwood flooring and the type of finishes used, complete drying may take up to three weeks or longer. If you file a claim, your insurance adjuster will work with you to make the final decision as to whether the floors in your property will need to be refinished or replaced.
