Water Damage to Your Baymeadows Home can Create Safety Hazards in the Bathroom and Kitchen

3/7/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Water Damage to Your Baymeadows Home can Create Safety Hazards in the Bathroom and Kitchen Water damage in your home can be dangerous. If your home has water damage, contact SERVPRO for remediation before the problem escalates.

SERVPRO Technicians Thoroughly Investigate the Extent of the Damage During the Remediation Process


Baymeadows homes need to stay dry and free of intrusive water. Regardless of the source, water can create many hazards inside the house. Pests become attracted to homes with water damage and can include termites, birds, rodents, and harmful insects.

When a Baymeadows home develops water damage in floors or ceilings, the safety of occupants can become an issue. Weakened areas in floors could let someone fall through while ceilings can collapse under their own weight. Even if it only involves someone's foot slipping through, an injury could easily happen. Plus, a hole in the floor requires immediate attention to prevent further accidents.

SERVPRO technicians ensure that accidents do not happen by clearing the area of damaged materials and securely putting an adequately sized temporary floor in place. Because water damage affects the underlying areas of a floor, the damage can affect a more significant portion than what the homeowner might know about beforehand. We must remove the visible areas, as well, to reach the damaged area, requiring its replacement.

When carpeting covers damaged floors, we do our best to save it, especially in large rooms. However, if the damage occurs in front of a sink or smaller area, it might prove worthwhile to use a more water-resistant covering in the future, to prevent future, additional water damage.

Regardless of the damage's location inside a home, SERVPRO professionals always discuss the steps available in each unique situation. Although we want to leave your home “Like it never even happened.” we know that modifications can also benefit our customers tremendously.
