Water Damage Slidell

Over a long period, your home may become worn out and suffer from withstanding the elements all year round. These areas of wear may include your roofing materials and the sealants or materials used to prevent rainwater from entering. These situations can be as tricky to spot as they are to stop since we spend little time inspecting our loft spaces. Sometimes damages that occur in the summer months do not become apparent until the winter with increases in rainfall, resulting in water concerns. 

A loft space that suffers from water damage in your Slidell home may be unnoticeable for several weeks or months. Insulation can absorb large amounts of rainwater, which, while creating a mold risk, means that the interior of your home is unaffected by water issues for some time. However, eventually, water issues in your attic begin to manifest in the upper stories of your home with common signs, including discoloration or the yellowing and cracking of wallpaper. If you notice any of these signs, you should ring SERVPRO immediately to discuss restoration options. 

Our water damage restoration technicians are adequately equipped to deal with any water emergency you may face. We can enter lofts and remove any affected insulation to limit the chances of microbial growth immediately. We may also decide to use portable extraction wands to remove moisture from small spaces like those found in your loft. Portable storage tanks can hold up to 40 gallons of moisture before they need emptying. 

Storage spaces in your home are often closed systems. Closed systems are areas of the home that do not have options for natural ventilation by opening windows, for example. SERVPRO technicians can use portable heaters alongside artificial air movers and dehumidification equipment. The combination of all three devices can encourage evaporation and reduce the amount of time it takes to dry the affected space thoroughly. Sheetrock that is removed from your attic can be reinstalled, or we can carry out the replacement of the affected materials inexpensively. 

For thorough water restoration in areas of your home with restrictive access, contact SERVPRO of Slidell at (985) 649-1516.
