Water Damage Water Removal for Your Destin Home after Washing Machine Malfunction If your washing machine malfunctions on the second floor it can cause significant damage requiring professional remediation specialists.

SERVPRO Acts Fast to Quickly Remove Water and Restore Your Home after Water Damage

With a lot of newer homes in Destin having a laundry room on an upper level, this poses a risk of severe water damage if the washing machine ever malfunctions. Water can easily seep through the flooring into the ceiling and rooms below. A situation like this needs to be handled as quickly as possible to avoid further damages, but cleaning up a mess this large requires professional knowledge and tools.

Your Destin home is a significant investment, so when water damage has threatened any part of it, the faster you act, the better. Hesitating at all to get water removal services allows more damage to occur, resulting in a more massive repair bill. SERVPRO is standing by at any hour, ready to help you when a water disaster strikes. We know these things never happen at a convenient time, so we are here whenever you need us with the experience needed to restore your home back to the way it was.

Since water can spread and get into and through a majority of surfaces, floors, walls, and obstructions, we first determine the scope of the damage so we can adequately mitigate it. Doing so protects your home from future mold and other residual problems. Since we cannot always see with the naked eye were all the moisture and water are, we use thermal cameras and moisture meters to find all the areas affected.

Then, if needed, SERVPRO techs remove materials like drywall, subflooring, and flooring which has been affected so we can salvage the substructure and framing of your home. We also separate and store your personal property during the restoration process. We salvage anything possible, cleaning and sanitizing all that can be restored.

We can then begin water extraction and drying. The standing water is removed with industrial-sized pumps, and then dehumidifiers and air-movers are brought in to finish the process of drying. Times can vary depending on how much moisture is present, but this step can take a few days at least, during which we monitor all of the equipment.

The affected areas are then treated to prevent mold and bacteria. Any rebuilding can now be done. When needed, we bring in other professionals to help with this step.

SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach realizes your home in Cinco Bayo, Mary Ester, or Longwood is the likely the most significant investment you own, so we treat it as such. When you contact us at (850) 863-2552 for any water damage emergency, we take care of your home as if it was our own.
