Hidden Seminole Water Damage in Wall Voids Is Uncovered and Treated by SERVPRO
Why SERVPRO Inspects Your Walls’ Interior Cavities when Called for Water Damage Services in Seminole
After a pipe breaks in an upstairs bathroom in your Seminole house, water steadily gushes out, soaking everything. The amount of force pushing this water out of the pipe depends on the diameter of the pipe and can be strong enough to force water inside the walls. Even when upper-level walls avoid getting soaked, a large amount can still end up inside the walls downstairs. Gravity is not your friend.
Electrical components throughout the walls in your home in Seminole can sustain water damage, which is one reason why SERVPRO checks inside walls and other enclosed spaces. We use infrared technology for this, as well as other diagnostic equipment. Our teams are trained in the latest techniques, from mitigation and restoration, scoping issues, prevention, and rebuilding. Locating hot spots that might otherwise remain undetected – at least until more serious, visible problems become obvious – mitigate the water damage and can help prevent mold infestations.
While our building crew can rewire sections or your entire home if needed, keeping this to a minimum can play a significant role in controlling your overall costs. Mitigating as early as possible also helps considerably. When we can dry out an enclosed space, we eliminate the humidity that can corrode electrical components and render them dangerous. Preventing a fire from corroded, faulty wiring and outlets protects your family from serious risk.
The inside of the walls also gives microbes a perfect environment. Such spaces contain abundant cellulose for microbes like mold to consume, an absence of air currents, a shield from solar rays, and trapped water as a source conducive for proliferation. Using an Injecti-dry system, we force air into such places, forcing the area to dry. We can also spray in an antimicrobial agent to protect the wooden frame, as well.
Water damage is also known to strike a condo with pungent, musty odors. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) can place long-lasting gel packs in walls to combat odors coming from specific areas. For larger areas or mystery odors, our OCT uses Ultra Low Volume (ULV) fogging to get rid of odors, wherever their sources exist. Hydroxyl generators and ozone machines are advanced machines for controlling and eliminating unwanted scents.
