The Water Damage in Your Jacksonville Home Can Be Remedied by SERVPRO

If your residential home in Jacksonville is victimized by water damage, the time to act is now. This is the case for several reasons, including the fact that secondary water damage can commence within 24 to 48 hours of exposure. One study found that wet drywall left untreated for two days had already given rise to microbial growth, including mold and mildew. In recognizing that addressing water damage is a time-sensitive matter, many homeowners wonder what steps they should take to optimize and expedite the remediation process. The most effective way to accomplish this objective is to call a team of trained water restoration specialists from SERVPRO. Learn more about this important matter by reviewing the following short outline:

What Can Water Damage Contractors Do For You?

By calling a water damage specialist to assist with the remediation of your residential property in Jacksonville, you will find many benefits. First, these remediation professionals from SERVPRO will perform a detailed assessment and inspection of your property to determine the depth and scope of water damage. Once they have logged this information, the water removal process can start. Truck mounted water pumps, and vacuums will remove the standing water. The next step is drying out walls, ceilings, flooring, hidden voids and structural materials with several types of de-humidifiers and air-movers. Additionally, they will remove or discard wet building materials like insulation, drywall, and carpet.

Moisture Readings

Another important component of the water remediation process is moisture readings. The restoration specialists will take moisture readings of affected areas of the property during the drying process. This step is important because it will ensure that your property is thoroughly dry prior to the water damage repair process. An applied structural drying technician from SERVPRO will monitor moisture levels in hidden regions of the property such as behind cabinets and wall cavities. This step ensures the prevention of excess moisture that could lead to microbial growth. The proliferation of mold in your home can lead to potentially hazardous health issues.
