SERVPRO Technicians Use Restoration Industry Best Practices to Remove Water Damage from Slidell Residences

Whether water damage comes from a pipe leak, appliance failure, or fixture overflow, even small amounts of water can create more significant problems without fast action. Carpeting and subfloors are particularly vulnerable to mold growth in Slidell, including structural damage, and unpleasant odors.

When water damage affects your Slidell home, SERVPRO technicians are available to render disaster mitigation services day and night to return your home to a preloss condition.

What Can I Do to Reduce the Risk of Mold Growth in Water-Damaged Carpet?

-    Keep nooks and crannies clean. Any surfaces that water damage contacts require sanitation to prevent mold risk. This includes walls and baseboards.
-    Steam clean your flooring. Steam cleaning is an effective way to sanitize carpets. Padding may require replacement, however, especially if it has detached from the carpet.
-    Inspect furniture. If your flooring has water damage, furniture may have also gotten wet. Move and inspect area rugs and upholstery to assess the scope of damage and sanitize the area.

How Does SERVPRO Restore Carpets?

SERVPRO techs take a systematic approach to carpet restoration to minimize loss to your home.
-    Water extraction, whether with rovers, suction pads, or extraction wands, is thorough while preventing the separation of carpet and pad.
-    Carpeting can be pulled up and tented to dry both above and below the surface.
-    Technicians can erect polyethylene drying chambers to accelerate small-scale drying in large areas like a living room with an open floor plan.
-    If water damage creates odors in your carpet, technicians can use injection systems, sprayers, and EPA-registered antimicrobials to remove odor-causing particles.

SERVPRO of Slidell has the tools and training needed to keep disaster-affected homes looking, “Like it never even happened.” Call (985) 649-1516 to begin the mitigation process.
