Water Damage Don’t Let Clogged Gutters Drain Water Inside Your Home Debris accumulates in rain gutters. Make sure to clean these at least yearly to prevent any damage to you home.

Water Damage a Possibility with Misaligned Gutters on Town Center Properties

Watching the rain hit a window in a Town Center home as it cascades downward might entertain children, but homeowners should see such activity as a sign of impending problems involving their home. Gutters clogged with leaves, twisted sections, or broken, disconnected areas can cause water to hit your home instead of flow correctly.  

Water damage inside your Town Center home can occur if your gutters contain flaws. Once your gutters receive the required repairs, SERVPRO can mitigate any water damage in your home's living space. When water damages a home because of misdirected rainfall, it can also affect window frames, particularly those made of wood. Interior walls made of drywall can break away in sections or crumble at the lightest touch.  

When SERVPRO technicians perform mitigation of water damage, we always check the moisture content of surrounding materials to ensure that they remain undamaged. Materials can seem uncompromised even after water seeped into them. Early detection of this situation means we can get the affected area dried out quickly and prevent permanent damage. Helping our customers save money is always important to us at SERVPRO.  

Water can also occur at the floor level after entering a house. Once there, it can begin warping trim and floorboards. We carry highly effective equipment that handles drying out moisture inside walls and other structures inside a house. After removing the baseboards and drilling two small holes, we can place the flexible tubing attached to our Injectidry system. Once ready, we can begin moving warm, dry air through the wall's cavity and get it dry again.

When moisture invades a floor, we can use mats that work similarly. Air movers also work to increase evaporation, and desiccant machines extract water vapor from the air as it circulates. Wherever materials show water damage, we only remove what is necessary and as neatly as possible.  

SERVPRO of Jacksonville South wants to help you keep your home in the best condition possible. We also work with families in Gate Parkway, Deerwood, and San Marco. Water damage can affect your home in many ways, many of which are preventable if detected early enough. Call us at (904) 762-8066 if you suspect water may pose a threat to your home.
