Could You Need Light Water Removal from Your Glendale Home?
Rely on SERVPRO When Water Damage in Your Home is More than You Can Handle
Water removal from a Glendale home can happen from any amount of water, not just a big flood. Something as small as a single pipe leak could warrant a professional water removal job in your home. While some puddles and issues dry up on their own, it can sometimes be difficult to tell when you should contact a company like SERVPRO to take care of things. If you are ever feeling unsure, give us a call for our advice, or check if you meet any of these conditions.
Relative Humidity is Excessively High
Extraordinarily high relative humidity in your home in Glendale could warrant water removal services. Humidity in most American homes stays very low, ranging from complete dryness to around 40% RH. If your home feels humid, or if you can test the humidity and find it to be unusually high, objects and materials around the house might be at risk of developing severe damage if they remain exposed to water droplets in the air for much longer. SERVPRO provides fast and inexpensive dehumidification services if humidity is the only problem in your home, as well as thorough checks to make sure there are no other types of damage in the building.
Areas are Warped and Discolored
Warping and discoloring of any kind of material can be a crucial indicator of water damage. When water first soaks into a material and later dries up, it causes that material to warp, bend, and change, causing visible physical alterations to the object or surface in question. If you find inexplicable patches that match these conditions, they are probably the result of past or present water in your home.
Any Surface is Moist to the Touch
If you find a wall, floor, ceiling, or any other surface that is moist to the touch without any apparent explanation, chances are that this moisture may be related to a persistent water damage problem such as a leak. Investigate the spot a bit more to make sure it is not a temporary patch of moisture, and call SERVPRO if you feel that more water than meets the eye may be in your home.
