Rapid Water Removal in Jacksonville Mitigates Both Damage and Microbial Growth
Leaking pipes in homes can result in health risks to property owners as well as physical damage to the structures. Water is home to many types of bacteria and other microorganisms which can spread throughout your property if left unchecked. It is vital to immediately address known water leaks to help prevent unwanted potential health effects.
Our highly trained and IICRC certified technicians are experienced in dealing with water leaks. SERVPRO workers can arrive at your Jacksonville home to mitigate water damage through rapid removal. We can find the source of the leak, and if minor we can plug it up. For significant water leakage, a plumber may be needed to stem the flow of the water.
We then assess the damage as we inspect areas of your property for more hidden problems. Clean Category 1 water from a pipe can degrade into gray water Cat 2 in a day or two. This water can contain materials or microorganisms that can cause illness if ingested or absorbed into the body. If spillage remains for typically two or three days, then it may become Category 3, Black Water. This does contain elements that cause health hazards. Often, Cat 3 water intrusions are the result of groundwater flooding.
Once the inspection and scoping of the water damage is complete, our SERVPRO techs can use industrial-grade wet vacs or larger pumps if needed to extract the water from surfaces. By quickly removing the water we can mitigate water damage and also the spreading of microorganisms, including dormant mold spores which can become activated with moisture.
To ensure that we uncover all the water, our team uses moisture meters and infrared camera imagery to discover hidden moisture pockets in wall cavities, voids, and subflooring.
Once the bulk of the water is gone from your home, we can set up dehumidifiers and high-speed air movers to accelerate the evaporation of water vapor. Airborne moisture can impact unaffected areas of the structure until a standard RH relative humidity level is reestablished. An antimicrobial product can be applied to complete the job as we do a final walk-through with you, our customer to ensure your complete satisfaction with the results.
