How Can I Quickly Clear This Water Spill Out of My Home?
Have SERVPRO Quickly and Expertly Restore Your Seminole Home
Many of us are now getting outside again, but that is no reason to ignore the home that served you so well the last few months. Leaks still happen, especially after more daily strain is put on the plumbing, week after week.
Is The Leak Under My Sink Really That Damaging?
It can be, which is why water cleanup in Seminole homes is so important. Bringing in SERVPRO can prevent multiple problems and prevents thousands of replacement costs. For example, that leak can, over time, send dozens and even hundreds of gallons of water through the linoleum where the seam meets the wall. It can also start mold growth.
Our technicians use sponges and absorbent cloths to draw out the water and an anti-bacterial cleaner to eliminate the mold. If the linoleum has not bubbled up too high, they can use a space heater to force it back in place.
My Leak was Upstairs, What Happens to My Walls?
If we arrive quickly enough, our technicians can save your drywall panels. They remove a section of floor trim, drill a hole near the floor, and use an air mover with a short hose to force warm air inside the wall space to dry it.
Is There Anything I Can Do?
Yes, and the first thing is to stay safe. If the electrical system has been compromised, remain outside unless you can turn off the power. Better yet, let SERVPRO do it for you. If it is safe inside, you’ll have time for these two tasks before we arrive:
- Wipe off any water beaded on your furniture. It removes an obvious threat that helps with evaporation and prevents finishes from running or forming bubbles.
- Remove all paintings from inside your home to a dry, safe location.
