Remodeling Your Kitchen After A Flood
Flood damage is never an easy thing to deal with. Almost immediately the emotional toll starts to set in, coupled with the stress of having to repair it. However, hiring a professional restoration company to remodel your kitchen after water damage is a big help. And there are many reasons you should do so.
Your floors and cabinets are made of wood. Wood soaks up water. This will cause the wood to break down. Immediately it will swell and lose its structural integrity. Water always takes the path pf least resistance. Naturally it is going to work its way through your floors and begin foundation damage.
As this same water begins to soak into your cabinets, it becomes a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Being that your kitchen is where you cook and store food, you want to fix this right away. If remediation is not possible, replacing cabinets is a must for the health and safety of you and your family.
Inviting Unwanted Guests
Damp environments are also an invitation for insects. They thrive in wet, dark conditions. First, termites will come in to take advantage of the damaged wood and start eating and multiplying rapidly. The presence of these termites will bring venomous insects like spiders that want to eat the termites. Having these in your home is a safety hazard to you and your family.
