Water damage, if not treated quickly and efficiently, can damage flooring, walls/ceilings,  and personal belongings. If proper mitigation steps aren't started within 24-48 hours, mold and mildew may begin to form.  SERVPRO of Foxborough is here and "Faster to Any Size Disaster.”

During the water mitigation process some homes or businesses may require a flood cut. A flood cut is the simple process of cutting out drywall that has become saturated with water. These cuts, depending on the severity of damage, may be 2-4 feet from the floor. 

By removing the saturated drywall the wall cavities are able to dry properly thus preventing potential hidden mold concerns.  When our team of professionals performs these cuts they will ensure the cut is strait to aid in the reconstruction process.  After the cuts have been made, SERVPRO technicians will remove all debris including the drywall and any insulation that needs to be removed as part of the drying process. In many circumstances, the wall cavities and studs remaining will be treated with an antimicrobial product to help prevent mold and mildew grow.  

As an added benefit, SERVPRO of Foxborough has a rebuilds team that is highly experience in drywall, trim/finish work, and painting to help make the process seamless. Our goal is to remove as much stress from your plate as possible during this already difficult time. Rebuilds make our business a one-stop shop, ready to get our home back on its feet, to make the disaster "Like it never even happened."
