Baton Rouge is no stranger to heavy storms and the devastating flood damage they can bring. In the aftermath of such natural disasters, the city and its residents face the daunting task of restoring their homes and communities. Our team at Lighthouse Disaster Services employs several fundamental techniques to mitigate flood damage and expedite the restoration process.
Once you call us for flood damage restoration, you can expect the following:
- Rapid Water Extraction: The first step in flood damage restoration is to remove standing water swiftly. Our team utilizes powerful pumps and extraction equipment to ensure the area is dry immediately. This quick drying minimizes structural damage and helps prevent mold growth.
- Structural Assessment: Once the water gets removed, we assess the structural integrity of buildings. Damaged walls, floors, and roofs are identified, and necessary repairs are initiated immediately to prevent further deterioration.
- Mold Remediation: Mold can proliferate rapidly after a flood in a hot and humid climate. Our mold remediation technicians employ advanced techniques to locate and eliminate mold, safeguarding the health of residents and the structural integrity of homes.
- Dehumidification: The region’s high humidity levels make dehumidification a critical step. Industrial dehumidifiers are used to reduce moisture levels in affected areas, preventing mold and minimizing secondary damage.
- Content Restoration: Personal belongings are not forgotten in the restoration process. Specialized techniques are used to clean, sanitize, and restore items damaged by floodwaters, from furniture to essential documents.
- Controlled Demolition: In cases where severe damage has occurred, controlled demolition may be necessary to safely remove damaged materials and prepare the area for reconstruction.
- Reconstruction and Renovation: The Lighthouse Disaster Services restoration process includes rebuilding structures, replacing damaged materials, and renovating affected areas. This step aims to restore homes to their pre-flood condition.
- Insurance Documentation: Throughout the process, thorough documentation is crucial for insurance claims. Our technicians work closely with homeowners to ensure all the necessary information is provided for a smooth claims process.
