How Your Phoenix Home Benefits from Water Damage Restoration

1/22/2020 (Permalink)

No one wants to deal with water damage in their home. There is not only the damage you can see but also underlying issues behind walls and under floors that may cause even more problems down the road. While you might be tempted to deal with the aftermath of water damage yourself, learn how your Phoenix home benefits from water damage restoration from the pros at SERVPRO of Phoenix.

Quick water removal reduces damages

Several issues can arise by failing to address the water damage challenges as soon as they happen. For instance, your contents may suffer costly damage if left unchecked. With time, what was salvageable may end up with permanent damage such as warping, tearing, mold or mildew. Electrical hazards may also show up unexpectedly, and therefore we always advise homeowners to work with professionals even when they think the situation is not that serious.

Find what’s causing the water damage first

Identifying and stopping the source of the water damage in your Phoenix property is the first step that our SERVPRO technicians perform. After that, we use detection equipment to determine the degree of water penetration. For general moisture detection in walls, carpets, and other areas, we use moisture sensors. However, for an accurate moisture reading and monitoring of the drying process, we use a moisture meter.
When there is some standing water in your structure, we must extract it using the appropriate extraction equipment. With the help of portable or truck-mounted extractors, water removal is possible. Usually, our SERVPRO team uses moveable types when removing water from areas with limited access. Apart from removing the water, the extractors are also helpful when cleaning upholstery and carpets.

Create a drying environment

Creating an environment where the rate of drying is faster is necessary during the restoration. That is why our team enhances airflow using air movers. After the water evaporates, it increases the air's moisture content which after some time cools and settles on areas. To prevent that, we perform dehumidification to address this and to lower the humidity of the air using desiccant or refrigerant dehumidifiers.

When some contents absorb the water, they rot, and after some time unpleasant odors result. Where possible, we remove the sources of those smells and after that administer deodorants by using ULV foggers or thermal foggers to neutralize them.
SERVPRO of Phoenix is a proven leader in water damage restoration. Call us at (480) 503-2090 to get the help you need when you experience water damage in your home.
