Experiencing water damage on the second floor of your home can be particularly challenging, leaving homeowners in Johns Creek feeling overwhelmed. At AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford, we understand the complexities involved and are dedicated to restoring your peace of mind along with your property. Our IICRC-certified technicians are equipped with the expertise and tools needed to address water damage efficiently, ensuring your home returns to its pre-loss condition.

Understanding the Complexities of Second-Floor Water Damage

Second-floor water damage presents unique challenges compared to its first-floor counterpart. Here are some of the complexities our team frequently encounters:

  • Water Distribution: Water from the second floor can seep through floorboards, impacting ceilings, insulation, and electrical systems below.

  • Hidden Moisture: Water can get trapped in unseen areas, such as behind walls and under flooring, leading to mold growth and structural damage.

  • Material Damage: Different materials react uniquely to water exposure. Hardwood floors may warp, while drywall can become soggy and lose its structural integrity.

Our Approach to Restoration

At AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford, our water cleanup professionals follow a systematic approach to address water damage, particularly when it impacts the floor below.

Immediate Containment

  • Assessment: Our technicians begin with a thorough assessment to understand the extent of the damage.

  • Containment: We quickly work to contain the area, preventing the further spread of water to other parts of the home.

Water Extraction and Drying

  • Advanced Techniques: Using state-of-the-art equipment, we extract standing water, including from hard-to-reach areas.

  • Drying: Industrial-grade dehumidifiers and air movers are deployed to dry affected areas, ensuring no hidden moisture remains thoroughly.

Addressing Hidden Moisture

  • Infrared Cameras: Our technicians use infrared cameras to detect hidden moisture without invasive measures.

  • Targeted Removal: Once detected, we focus on drying these areas, sometimes requiring the removal of affected materials to ensure complete moisture eradication.

Final Restoration

  • Repair and Replace: Damaged materials are either repaired or replaced with the help of trusted area contractors, depending on the overall extent of the damage.

  • Sanitization: The affected area is sanitized to prevent mold growth, ensuring a safe environment for your family.
