Know When to Call in a Water Remediation Company for Water Damage

12/20/2021 (Permalink)

Every home experiences some kind of flooding or water situation at some point. From leaving a kitchen sink unattended to an overflowing bathtub, every house gets wet at some point. If you’re there when these minor mishaps occur, you can likely stop the water and mop up the moisture before any damage is done. However, sometimes “minimal” water damage isn’t so minimal. Minimal water damage occurs on a smaller scale, such as a persistent leak from a faucet fixture that, over time, causes water damage throughout the walls, cabinetry, and flooring of your home. Addressing this damage is critical to preventing secondary effects that could prove detrimental to your home such as mold and mildew growth. It’s important to know when to call a pro when you experience water damage in your home.

Drying out your home after water damage

Drying out the water-damaged elements within your home begins with an assessment of the full scope of the damage that exists. Small water incident that you stopped almost immediately? Grab a mop to get up excess water and turn on the fans to dry out what little moisture might be left. If you experienced a small “whoops” and stopped the water before it seeped into walls, carpet, etc. you’re OK handling it on your own. Anything else needs to be addressed by professionals to avoid further damage. Our SERVPRO of Central Phoenix technicians undergo extensive training to earn their certifications through the IICRC in water damage restoration and continue these educational opportunities through in-house certification courses and applied hands-on instruction to become well-equipped for any facet of restoration they might have to address in the field. We’re experts in water damage assessment to efficiently inspect for potential concerns beyond easily visible issues.

Advanced technologies help address water damage issues

To accomplish the water damage restoration that SERVPRO does for water damage situations, we rely on the advanced technologies at our disposal. Unlike small water mishaps, more substantial leaks and floods leave behind water that’s not always visible. Our moisture detection equipment helps to show pockets of moisture the eye cannot see without tearing out materials unnecessarily. Combined with our air moving equipment and industrial-strength dehumidifiers, we can have a fast and powerful effect on drying out your home. Air movers force water embedded into materials like the cabinetry and walls, as well as other items, out into the air to get removed as a vapor by the dehumidification equipment we use, avoiding potential issues with mold and mildew that could otherwise grow from residual moisture.

If your home experiences water damage, it’s best to call in the experts to ensure all water is removed so no future issues of mold, mildew, or odor arise. Our goal is to provide fast and professional water damage restoration services for any situation that might exist within your home. You can trust our SERVPRO of Central Phoenix technicians to utilize their training and industry-leading equipment to resolve your water damage quickly.
