Complications Due to Water Damage Migration Are Why SERVPRO Offers Innovative Solutions
Let SERVPRO handle your Seminole water damage.
When your Seminole home experiences a plumbing leak, sink overflow, or appliance malfunction, the floors in your home can suffer. Responders must understand the principles of water migration or significant water damage can go unaddressed. Reliable assessment of all aspects of a water loss is why our team can deliver successful results. We ready our technicians with the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training in the industry’s best practices and invest in state of the art equipment.
Water Damaged Hardwood Floors Need Special Strategies
Protect your hardwood floors from permanent water damage in your Seminole home. Our crews are familiar with the challenges posed by water migration, why we spend time using thermal imaging and various types of moisture probes to detect where water percolated after spreading across the floor. Failing to follow the flow exposes your home to progressive deterioration and secondary damage, such as mold growth.
Soaked Subfloors Require Attention
Water is always on the move after a leak, dripping through joints and seeping through crevices in hardwood floors. You might believe the problems disappear with the draining of puddles, but the water is still there, soaked into subfloor and joists. The moisture wicks up into planks or strips of hardwood, causing them to swell on the edges (cupping) or in the center (crowning) of each separate piece of wood. Proven techniques learned during IICRC courses and implemented on our previous jobs are why SERVPRO is confident of our recommended mitigation and remediation plans.
Water Removal and Drying Innovations that Span the Layers
Hardwood floor configurations need remediation strategies that pull moisture from all layers. Negative and positive pressure systems work well to suction fluids and then force warmed into all affected building materials and cavities. The effectiveness of these approaches is why SERVPRO invests in floor mat and baseboard hose-linked Injectidry systems that first use powerful negative air pressure (suction) to remove water. Once all fluids evacuate the layers, we switch to heated air movers and dehumidifiers that speed evaporation and then collect the water vapor for disposal.
Continuing education and inventories of up to date water removal and drying equipment are why SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches can fulfill our promise to make water loss “Like it never even happened.” Have confidence in our preparation and call (727) 391-6212 for a water damage consultation.
