Storm Damage in Kansas

After heavy rainstorms in Kansas caused severe property damage for many homeowners, SERVPRO franchises from across the Midwest were called upon to lend some helping hands. This finished basement was flooded, damaging carpeting and drywall. After removing the affected drywall and carpet, we set up equipment to dry the area. Here is one of our fans working in tandem with a dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air.

The standing water in this property in Schaumburg penetrated the joints and severely warped the hardwood flooring planks. These damaged elements were lifted so the underlying floor joists and piers could be suitably dried through air circulation and dehumidification.
