Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

1/11/2018 (Permalink)

If water damage is not remediated quickly, mold colonies can begin to form.

SERVPRO Focuses on Restoration over Replacement

Unlike some other cleanup tasks, responding to water incursion damage in Fort Walton Beach cannot wait. The harm done to structural materials, fixtures, and contents begins immediately after water intrudes and is progressive, worsening with the passage of time. Partnering with a reputable water damage restoration company is the key to returning your home to preloss condition.

Professional water damage restoration for your Fort Walton Beach home aids the property owner in several meaningful ways. Extraction of large amounts of water needs heavy duty equipment and technicians experiences with its use. Issues of water contamination when the source is flooding or sewage backup requires expert assessment and proper disposal if indicated. Our crews have Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training, ensuring water damage management over many kinds of situations meets industry standards.

Water left to soak the wooden framing and flooring of most homes deteriorates these essential supporting building components. Swelling and warping occur if water is not removed fast. Drywall and ceiling tiles crumble when saturated, necessitating swift drying. Mold damage is a risk if the moisture is not removed within 48 hours. SERVPRO technicians use their coursework and experience to measure moisture levels, find hidden pockets of water, and remediate both quickly. Drying targets are calculated, and our crews position air movers and dehumidifiers to pull water vapor out of structures and fixtures. Monitoring of moisture reduction is continued throughout the process.

A layperson may believe that soaked materials must be torn out and replaced. SERVPRO focuses on restoration, using strategies learned in IICRC classes to dry out a broad range of items efficiently for use again. Hiring our crews can save money over the long run by placing structures and contents back in service for you. Expensive carpeting and irreplaceable hardwood floors respond well when skilled workers employ the proper techniques. Walls and ceilings dry and look “Like it never even happened.” when the response is speedy and the tools used are well-matched to the problem.

Even water damaged documents and pictures are restorable through resources available to SERVPRO. Advanced methods such as lyophilization, or freeze drying, remove water vapor without further damage to the paper. Your most treasured heirlooms and important papers have new life after our treatments.
