Is Restoration Cheaper than Replacement?
SERVPRO Can Assist Des Moines with a Cost-Effective Solution to Water Intrusion
Water intrusion can often result in the demolition of certain parts in the building assembly. Sometimes it can be cost and time-effective to demo materials rather than attempt to restore them. SERVPRO crew chiefs calculate the expense of restoration versus replacement when deciding which parts of a home to restore.
A water cleanup service in your Des Moines home may be faster if materials are removed altogether. Highly porous materials, contaminated materials, and pre-test results are typically the deciding factor in whether items are salvageable or not. Sometimes a demolition may be necessary to access cavities in the home and dry or clean them.
- Technicians can detach carpets using a Knee Kicker or a Carpet Awl to inspect them. Often the carpet pad must be replaced in water cleanup.
- Baseboards are commonly removed to access wall cavities and involve using a pry bar or putty knife to reduce wall damage.
- Assemblies in the home, such as staircases, are frequently removed to inspect the inner cavity.
