Termite Issues after Flood or Water Damage

Why Choose SERVPRO of Upper Darby

In addition to obvious flood and water damage, a sudden infusion of large amounts of water in business districts and residential neighborhoods often produce less apparent, long term hazards. After drying out, following a catastrophic rainy season, real estate owners may choose to focus on other issues. Yet failing to address these residual, often invisible, concerns associated with water damage sometimes leads to significant problems later.

When water cleanup efforts in man-made structures fail to eliminate dampness from internal wooden surfaces, in some locations environmental conditions favor termite infestations. While replacing rotting wood in the wake of a flood won't guarantee a termite infestation does not occur (termites will infest dry wood, also), it may well decrease the likelihood of this problem occurring.

The Water Damage Restoration Process

SERVPRO of Upper Darby ’s comprehensive water cleanup and mitigation efforts consider termite infestation issues. Drying out wood carefully is an important part of our Water Restoration Process, especially in areas with termite concerns.

Drying and Dehumidification
