When Clean Water Causes Flood Damage in Your Baymeadows Residence
Team SERVPRO Quickly Assesses How to Best Dry Out Your Flooded Property
It can be a highly traumatic experience when flooding occurs in your Baymeadows home. Flooding from other sources can also occur, such as when a water line breaks away from the back of an appliance. While these might seem cleaner than flooding from weather-related events, water in Category 1 can change.
If your home in Baymeadows sustains flood damage from an appliance, the clean water involved can become altered because of chemicals in your home. Some of these chemicals include cleaning agents and soaps, herbicides and pesticides, and fertilizers for plants. Other ordinarily innocuous items in your home can include kitty litter boxes, kennels, or recently applied floor treatments.
SERVPRO technicians begin removing the water as soon as the flow of water stops. With the use of either pump trucks, for those times when the home was vacant at the time the flooding began, or smaller extraction devices that we manipulate by hand for those occasions when someone caught the accident in its early stages, we remove the visible water.
After we remove the majority of the water, the moisture content can remain higher than average. As time elapses, this moisture can begin evaporating into the air, increasing the overall humidity and allowing it to spread. Because of this, we use a combination of heaters, air movers, desiccant machines, dehumidifiers, and moisture extraction mats. Each piece of equipment helps us complete a crucial part of the drying out process a home with flood damage requires.
Our goal in restoring your home is to make everything "Like it never even happened." by the time we leave. The many components of your home react differently when exposed to water or moisture, but our IICRC certificates mean we come to your home prepared for such situations. No job is too small for us, nor too large. We view any amount of flood damage as something we need to mitigate. Otherwise, the damage increases within your home continuously merely because moisture only recycles itself, never disappearing, until we remove it from your residence.
