ERS: Surprising Flood Restorations
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.
