Some Tips to Help You Combat Flood Damage in Your Nampa Hotel

3/8/2020 (Permalink)

Quick action is required when your hotel sustains damage. Contact our certified technicians for effective flood damage remediation efforts.

Cleaning and Drying Flooded Rooms of Your Nampa Hotel

Floods do not always affect the whole main levels of your Nampa hotel, but the rooms that do get affected must receive immediate attention from competent professionals. Because structural assemblies contain numerous construction materials, many areas of your flood-damaged guest rooms must get restored using our advanced technologies, practices, and equipment.

While it might appear from the outside as a flurry of green uniforms and equipment moving in and out of the damaged areas, restoring flood damage to your Nampa hotel rooms is a much more calculated procedure. We strive to determine the spread and migration of the intruding water and work to determine how deeply into these surface materials the moisture has gone before extraction, controlled demolition, and drying efforts begin.

After you have relocated guests away from the rooms and our SERVPRO team has started to assemble containment barriers to limit traffic into the damaged areas, we can focus on several key areas likely to be severely damaged by standing water and contamination.

Floor Assemblies 

Carpets are a high porosity material that can quickly absorb water and moisture, making it difficult to prevent the complete saturation of these layers in the early stages of floodwater exposure. Carpets must get removed to prevent the spread and increased concentration of contamination. If subflooring is unreached by migrating floodwater, it is possible to disinfect these materials and only replace the carpet and padding.

Drywall, Insulation, and Metal Framing 

When the building was first constructed, metal framing became the skeleton of the structure. With flooding infiltrating the guest rooms, wood trim and drywall are among the first surfaces affected in the wall assembly, and moisture can move through materials with higher permeance quickly. Portions of drywall and even wet insulation must get discarded, but metal framing can get thoroughly cleaned and disinfected for new drywall to get attached to when rebuilding.

There is much work to be done when floodwaters penetrate portions of your hotel. Even though you can keep the guests from most of these inconveniences when smaller areas get damaged, it is still vital to get back to business as usual as soon as possible. Give our SERVPRO of Nampa / Caldwell team a call today at (208) 466-5000.
