Get rid of it all!
It is hard to imagine the damage that a hurricane and standing water can do to a home. This house was raised about 3' and had a crawlspace; the water was about 6' high outside and ruined everything. It was Heart breaking.
This is an example of a beautiful home and we needed to remove everything down to the stud walls. All of the hardwood floors needed to be removed. All of the custom cabinets needed to be removed and were not reusable. Ceramic tile, vanities, carpet, padding, appliances, automobiles, flooring and insulation all had to be removed and replaced. Once all of the damaged materials were removed, then we needed to clean and dry everything.
Whether the damage is in our own town or across the country, SERVPRO of Elgin/Northwest Kane County will be there to help homeowners in their time of need!
