Restore or remove, that is the question
During a water loss, removing and replacing may seem like the easiest and quickest option. At SERVPRO of Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez/Goleta, we look to restoration rather than tear out and replace as a first option. Some of the pros to restoration include: being more cost efficient, it helps our carbon footprint by limiting what we put in landfills, and saving many items with sentiment that cannot be replaced. SERVPRO of Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez/Goleta works seamlessly with insurance companies, providing them with restoration budgets that not only meet their stringent guidelines, but provide the homeowner with the best possible outcome in the end. Cost effective remediation methods are tailored to the expected condition of the items in each area. For example if you have water damaged wood flooring and they are solid wood planks, often with special equipment they can be dried in place and saved. In some cases, the flooring may need refinishing once drying goals are met. Even in this example if the wood floors did need to be refinished, time and money are saved. SERVPRO can use similar techniques to save cabinets, walls and the types of non-structural, water-damaged materials that can be expensive to replace. The professionals at SERVPRO of Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez/Goleta will always do their best to act quickly, restore whatever they can and keep things as accessible as possible.
