At Apex Disaster Specialists Louisiana, LLC, we jumped into action to tackle a tough flood damage cleanup Lake Charles, LA project for a residential homeowner. This case study outlines the steps we took during the flood cleanup process. 

Multi-Level Flood Cleanup

When we got the distress call from a homeowner grappling with the aftermath of a flood, we knew we had to act fast. Multiple rooms and a bathroom were submerged, leaving behind a trail of chaos. Floors, walls, insulation, trim, and door frames were all soaked and damaged. It was quite a sight, to say the least. But with determination, we set out to restore this home to its former glory.

Managing the Post-Flood Task

Step 1: Assessment and Inspection

We wasted no time in rushing to the scene. Our team thoroughly inspected the rooms, using moisture detectors and meters to measure the full extent of the damage. With a moisture reading of 10.6, we understood the scale of the task ahead.

Step 2: Damage Mitigation

To stop any further harm, we quickly removed all waterlogged materials, including damaged sections of drywall and insulation. Making strategic cuts closer to the floor helped us eliminate the worst of the damage, laying the groundwork for the restoration process.

Step 3: Drying and Dehumidification

Enter our trusty companions: air movers and dehumidifiers. These machines tirelessly extracted moisture from the air and surfaces, ensuring a thorough drying process. We kept a close eye on the progress, making necessary adjustments along the way.

Step 4: Moisture Detection and Verification

Before moving on, we performed another round of moisture detection and verification to make sure all affected areas were adequately tackled and dried, leaving no room for future issues.

Step 5: Cleanup and Sanitization

With moisture levels under control, it was time to roll up our sleeves and get down to business. Armed with shop vacs and antimicrobial spray, we scrubbed away any lingering traces of mold and mildew, leaving behind a fresh and sanitized environment.

Homeowners Satisfied with Cleanup Results

Thanks to the dedication and expertise of our team, we breathed new life into this flood-ravaged home. The once-waterlogged rooms now stood dry and refreshed, ready to welcome back their grateful occupants. Our client couldn’t have been happier with the results, and neither could we.
