flooding in property SERVPRO of East Naples at (239) 352-8300 is ready 24/7 to handle any size or type of flood damage in local properties.

No matter how the water got into your Riverstone residence, SERVPRO techs have the expertise and equipment to make it right.

When a door allows water into a Riverstone property, the most obvious place to look is around the door's base. If you see the light coming through gaps between your door and the door frame, that means water can enter too. Doing regular inspections on the interior and exterior around your doors can help inhibit this issue from happening. However, there are actually four main places where leaks typically occur on doors such as:
    •    The upper corners
    •    Between the doors on French doors or along the jambs
    •    Gaps around crucial corners, found between your door panel and door jamb
    •    Beneath the door, the threshold

What are Signs of Flood Damage Entering the Walls?
When a damaged door allows flood damage into a Riverstone home, the water may not initially show up on the floor. If it is seeping in around a door, it can run in the walls for a time before it makes itself known through water spots on the sheetrock and finally visible water.

SERVPRO techs can find the water rapidly upon arrival through the use of their equipment. They have probes and infrared cameras that can pinpoint cooler temps, which show collections of moisture behind walls without the need to open the sheetrock.

If the floodwater has been running into the wall cavity's interior, the insulation and the sheetrock that has wicked water require removal and disposal. In minor water intake cases, the techs can often use a tactic known as "weep holes" to assist the wall in both draining and drying through evenly drilled holes in the wall.

SERVPRO of East Naples at (239) 352-8300 is ready 24/7 to handle any size or type of flood damage in local properties. The techs have the equipment to find, extract and dry the home to make it, “Like it never even happened.”
