Water Damage Restoration 101

When natural disasters like floods or fire take place in your home or office, dealing with a flood is typically one of the property owner's most pressing concerns. If you do not address the excess water in your home or office immediately, you could find yourself dealing with a wide range of unwanted health and safety issues. To ensure that your property is restored correctly and quickly, you need to attain professional water damage remediation services. Here are just a few benefits that result from taking this course of action:

 Preventing Mold Growth

 Find a professional restoration services near you to help prevent mold growth. When you have excess standing water in your home or office, you create the damp setting that mold likes to thrive in. When you hire a team of remediation specialists, they will utilize advanced methodologies and cutting edge equipment to quickly remove excess water from your property.

 Preventing Structural Damage

 When you hire a team of  restoration experts, they will help prevent your home or office from falling prey to structural damage. If excess water starts to seep into your property's structure, the result can be the deterioration of its stability and strength.

Restoration professionals possess the equipment and expertise necessary to recognize and remediate signs of damage quickly. In so doing, they can prevent deep, permanent structural damage from transpiring.

Cogging in your pipes or drains. Toilet tissue can lead to blocked pipes easily. When you flush with a clog present, more water fills the bowl and spills onto the floor.

Flooding can happen because of carelessness as well. If you don't keep an eye on water running in a clogged tub or sink, you'll have a huge mess on your hands. When you find a flooded bathroom for any reason, turn off the water supply to your sink, toilet, or bathtub at the valve right away. Then contact our technicians at SERVPRO as soon as you can. We have the expertise and tools to deal with just about any flooding problem.

We take care of all the standing water first with truck-mounted pumps. Then, we can get into the bathroom with industrial fans and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry the area out. Repairs that are needed are made, and if the flooring is ruined, including subflooring, we take care of this as well. Special moisture meters are also used to detect any hidden moisture or mold to ensure that the affected areas are completely clear of any more damage.

Call us! We are available 24 hours a day for emergencies in the Arlington area.
