Can it Be Saved?
Following a home flooding event, many homeowners and renters are surprised to learn that some of their most valued objects can actually be restored. There’s almost nothing that can’t be fixed when a professional electronics technician takes a damaged device apart, cleans it, and reassembles it.
You just have to choose a reputable restoration company that knows how to repair your specific items.
When you find yourself dealing with a home flood, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and frustrated. Many believe their most treasured electronics are destined for the landfill. But don’t toss your belongings yet!
Here are a just a few examples of surprising items that can be successfully fixed by flood damage restoration companies:
machines and vintage arcade games.
With so many tiny metal components, moving parts, and microchips, you may think that a waterlogged arcade game would be a goner. But water damage is no match for an experienced arcade game restorer, even if the machine has sustained extensive water damage. Bringing your old pinball machine back to life involves deconstruction, cleaning, replacing fuses and bulbs, and then reassembling the unit. But skilled restoration technicians will get your prized pinball or arcade game working again.
Everything old becomes new again, and vintage stereo cabinets have enjoyed resurgence in popularity since Mad Men brought back the 1960s aesthetic. These midcentury stereo cabinets feature a radio and a record player housed inside a decorative wooden cabinet. Water can cause damage to every component, from the electric turntable to the wooden legs. Trained restoration experts can get the electronic components working again, eliminate moisture inside the cabinet, and stop mold growth in its tracks.
Believe it or not, waterlogged kitchen appliances from flooded homes can also be restored. Even smart appliances powered by microchips and controlled with touchscreens can be repaired by good restoration technicians. And don’t worry about the exterior, because saltwater corrosion on metal appliances can be remedied. As an added bonus, a full-service restoration company will store your repaired appliances for you until you can move back into your house.
