Replacing Your Floors? Consider the following:
St. Augustine residents have now been forced to overcome the troubling outcome of two hurricanes in the past year. Many of our clients from Hurricane Matthew became repeat customers after Hurricane Irma.
Residents who have homes in low lying areas and are prone to flooding are left with little options to protect their residence from flooding in the event of another hurricane. Raising the house to be higher above sea level is expensive and time consuming.
When a home floods from a hurricane, the water is considered to be grossly contaminated. Anything porous that the water touches is considered compromised and should be removed. This includes laminate flooring, carpet, carpet pad, etc.
One step that homeowners are taking in the second rebuilding process is to add tile floors throughout the entire house. Tile is not a porous material, and does not have to be removed after a floor. While the installation of tile is more pricey, it offers one less thing to worry about after a hurricane.
Since tile is bonded directly to the concrete, water does not penetrate its surface. This allows SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach to finish the process of restoring your home in less time!
