Better known as Australia’s sunshine state, sunny Queensland also experiences some pretty wacky weather. Brisbane locals are only too accustomed to floods and the aftermath of flood damage to their homes, as a result of torrential rainfall into an overflowing Brisbane River.
Water damage to your home, cannot only be a costly but time a consuming incident. The extent of flood damage to your home may determine your need to vacate your home only leading to further time, energy and stress. South Queensland Restorations provide a 24 hour 7 days a week water damage restoration service, quickly acting to address flood damage to eliminate any present water, and prevent excessive structural damage, any chance of mould growth.
Here’s Bald Hills homeowner Adams testimonial for South Queensland Restorations flood damage cleanup.
Recently in a northernmost suburb of Brisbane, South Queensland Restorations responded to an out of hours flood cleaning emergency. Arriving at the Bald Hills home, South Queensland Restorations addressed the extensive damage to walls, timber flooring and carpets. The timber floorboards in the lounge and family room were of primary concern, already swelling and lifting from their original structure. After assessment it was determined the timber couldn’t be saved, needing a fast removal in order to ventilate and dry out the concrete underneath to prevent further structural damage and mould growth. The carpets in two bedrooms also affected by flood damage need to be ventilated and dried. Treatment using specialist equipment was applied to all affected carpets, and concrete flooring, which incorporated the use of dehumidifiers and dryers to aid the ventilation and drying process. Prior to drying and ventilating the carpet, the underlay was removed and disposed of allowing for a new underlay to be installed once South Queensland Restorations had completed their carpet cleaning process.
The South QLD team make every attempt possible to reduce costs and reuse products where they can, after addressing the water damage in this situation the team decided the carpet underlay wasn’t in a condition to be reused. If reused mould and odour problems would result within a week or two, leading the team with no choice but to dispose of the underlay.
The image above highlights the flood damage cleaning and removal of affected flooring carried by South QLD cleaning services, which then allowed for later restoration of carpet, timber, and painting necessary in affected areas.
