Salvaging Your Tools after Flood Damage Covers Your Taunton Neighborhood

11/21/2019 (Permalink)

Taunton residents don’t panic over your tools, SERVPRO will be there for your flood damage.

Let SERVPRO help you save it all when you have a flood damage in Taunton.

It took time to collect all of the tools in your Taunton garage, but a disaster like a flood can destroy so many of your possessions. These losses might include projects you made using those tools, making their loss seem even more terrible. Getting them cleaned up as quickly as possible can save many from corrosion and, in the case of power tools, from needing you to replace the entire tool.

While you might need to replace some of the tools you kept in your Taunton garage, flood damage doesn't need to claim all of them. Our building department, with General Contractor License # CS-108357, utilizes many power tools and other pieces of equipment when we restore and repair water-damaged materials, fixtures, and items. We can dry off the exteriors and if there are not electrical wiring or other damage to the power tool, it may still be operational. If not working, then a specialist needs to be called in to attempt to salvage the tool.

Hand tools also require similar measures to prevent corrosion. Corroded tools become difficult to handle easily, develop sharps burs, and generally end up unsafe to work with unless the user wears heavy gloves to protect their hands. We can wipe them down with cleaning agents to remove residues and then apply a light application of oil to seal out moisture

The rest of your garage also needs extensive work after a flood. Heavy work tables require cleaning and drying to prevent warping and splitting of both legs and other areas that remained submerged.

We also flush out debris and clean out the garage. Flooding can carry heavy items, including large pieces of trees, trash, and broken pieces of glass. The force behind floodwaters can also break panels laid up against the base of the garage's walls in anticipation of future projects, and then push them around. 

We try to organize everything for you so you can see which items do need to be replaced or salvaged. This attention to detail helps ensure customer satisfaction.

SERVPRO of Taunton/Mansfield is also near Norton and Raynham, ready to help residents with all of the flood damage restoration needs. Call us at (508) 824-0200 for a fast response and a competent restoration crew.
