Weakened Materials in a Home are Classic Signs of Water Damage in Glendale
Water Damage in your Home
Water affects building materials in a manner that is generally adverse. Even metal, which is non-porous, can suffer rust and corrosion after exposure to water. Rust can take a few days to develop, but porous items show the effects of contact with water much more quickly.
When your Glendale home suffers from water damage, both the safety and the interior aesthetics of your home decrease. Water damage can create ugly stains on walls and ceilings, soggy spots in floors, and unpleasant smells and odors that permeate and fill the air. Getting rid of these problems and others which water creates is what the technicians at SERVPRO train for, resulting in certifications and skills that benefit you and your family.
Water damage has a source, and an important part of mitigating damage related to water includes locating that source and ensuring that it no longer poses a threat. Our use of hygrometers and infrared scanning equipment can reveal these hidden sources to us. Once we have this information, stopping the influx of water in the future is easy to accomplish.
Water can create problems anywhere it is found in a home, including carpeting and other textiles. Drapes can lose color, and eventually, dry rot, crumbling when touched. Carpets and rugs can unravel when the glue in their backing dissolves. Stored clothing can become inundated with mildew spots. Moreover, these are only the problems that textiles can experience.
Your home's structure must be solid and strong to protect your family. SERVPRO technicians know how to restore this strength to your home's structure, piece by piece. Each type of material must be restored according to type, and also in keeping with current building codes. We always stay current with these requirements, assuring our customers that the finished work passes final inspections when required.
