Water Damage and an Overflowing Sink in Your Madeira Beach Home
Our Technicians Are Trained to Use Efficacious Techniques
A quickly overflowing sink can create more than just a wet mess in your Madeira Beach home. If it gets out of hand, it can result in flooding indoors and severe water damage to your property. It can also create health hazards since sink water is unsanitary and can be a catalyst for fungal and bacterial growth. The best defense is to prevent it from happening in the first place.
Keep in mind that most sink overflows happen due to the drain being clogged. If you can keep the drains clear in your home, you can prevent this problem and Madeira Beach water damage. If, however, you still experience a sink overflow, contact our staff at SERVPRO right away so we can help you to fix the problem and clean up the damage.
To dry a structure, we must remove the moisture from the air. An open drying method trades the moist air inside your home for air from outside that is drier. We open windows and use fans or air movers to exchange air to ventilate the area which is affected.
For the most efficient conditions for drying, air outside should have a higher temperature and low relative humidity. We take measurements to figure out the specific humidity for both outside and inside air.
A drying system which is closed encloses the area off from the air outside and from anywhere that is not affected by the water damage. We use equipment for dehumidification to dehumidify the air inside. In order for this method to work, we have to control the environment indoors using dehumidifiers and air movers. It is easier for smaller areas, so we create a chamber for drying by closing windows and doors or hanging a plastic sheet around the area. Air conditioning can be used as well to help dehumidify, and by setting up a chamber for drying, we can dry what needs to be dried more thoroughly and quickly.
