We Have The Equipment And Training To Handle Your Destin Home Restoration
Water Removal Needs to be Fast and Complete to Protect the Floors in Your Destin Property
When a water loss seems minor in your Destin home, you might just reach for a bucket and mop rather than the phone. This choice often comes back to haunt you as moisture can migrate in the blink of an eye and be very challenging to eradicate without professional equipment and expertise. Contacting us for an evaluation by one of our experienced project managers is a wise decision, covering all the twists and turns a water damage scenario can pose.
Proper equipment and well-trained operators are the keys to successful water removal in Destin. No matter how the water found a pathway into your property, we have a set of strategies to get it out fast, including dealing with residual moisture trapped in hidden or difficult to reach spaces or absorbed by porous building materials. Failing to remove all the water and reduce the moisture levels in structural components exposes your home to the risk of progressive build material deterioration and potential mold growth and damage.
Upon arrival at your home, the SERVPRO team assesses the damage, including determining whether water migrated from the original incursion to other areas of the property. If standing water is more than 2 inches deep gas powered pumps begin removing the liquid. Follow up with wanded extractors then reduces the visible water in the affected space to zero. We scan with thermal devices to locate any hidden water caches between walls or in other recesses.
Water that pools up on hardwood floors tends to wick into the wood and seep into the cracks between planks. The subfloor can be saturated when the top layer looks dry. The water absorbed by the underlying plywood or other substrate causes the decorative hardwood layer to absorb water from the bottom up, causing swelling and distortion of the material. SERVPRO goes beyond the mop and bucket, using floor mats attached to negative air pressure equipment to suction up the unseen yet extremely destructive water.
Depend on SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach to have practical and proven solutions to your water removal worries. Call us at (850) 863-2552 to evaluate your water removal needs.
