A Burst Pipe in My Second Floor Bathroom Caused Water Damage. How Do I Restore My Slidell Home?
Contact SERVPRO Technicians in Slidell to Mitigate the Water Damage in Your Property.
Water can flow into various surfaces in your Slidell home, especially if it is from high grounds. After 24 hours, the moisture can trigger mold growth, causing health effects to your family. Also, the humidity affects the structure’s stability if not handled on time by certified professionals.
Where do the experts begin?
At SERVPRO, we can begin mitigating the water damage in your Slidell property by inspecting the affected area thoroughly. We have advanced equipment that helps us determine moisture levels on surfaces and hi-tech tools that aid in the reinstallation processes without causing more damage. Since water can travel into hard to reach areas and other confined places such as wall cavities, we can use a thermal imaging camera during the inspection. The equipment helps us to pinpoint areas where we should concentrate on during the drying process.
How do restorers dry hard to reach areas?
SERVPRO technicians understand that moisture in hard-to-reach areas can cause mold growth and odors if we do not remove it. Therefore, we do our best to dry the hard to reach areas completely using state-of-the-art equipment and innovative techniques. Some hard-to-reach areas such as ductwork, ceiling, and behind drywall can be expensive to repair if demolished. Since our primary aim is to reduce damage, we can drill small holes into your ceiling or drywall to access the moisture. We can use structural cavity drying equipment attached to air movers to direct dry air into the confined area.
Should I dispose of damaged contents?
Our technicians can help you separate the salvageable items from those damaged beyond repair. Contents such as wood veneer furniture and carpets submerged in water for over 48 hours can be difficult to salvage. We can dispose of such items professionally to avoid further damage. We take pictures of the damaged items before disposal so you can include them in your insurance claim.
How about the odors persisting in my property?
Odor can linger in your property depending on:
- The water source
- The number of days the water stood in your property
- Surfaces that seeped the water
We can restore fresh air into your property using various techniques depending on the intensity of the odor. For instance, our technicians can use the Vaportek unit to clean the air in the affected area. The system distributes its molecules into the air to neutralize odor molecules upon contact.
