Professional Water Damage Restoration In Glendale
Spring in Glendale means the rainy season is nearing its end, but that is no reason to not be careful. Mere inches of rain, even in otherwise dry climates, can affect your home in ways you may not expect. When water damage from springtime rain leaves the kitchen in your Glendale home with a soggy ceiling, that minor leak can become a habitat for mold if left unchecked for more than 48 hours.
If you have water damage in your Glendale home, you need a professional team that addresses the problem with care to repair damage and mitigate any further issues. Our team has over 40 years of experience and is staffed with trained disaster cleanup professionals that stand ready to address any mold, water, storm, or fire damage in your home in just 24 hours.
After you call your local SERVPRO, our certified technicians can use an array of tools including moisture sensors, meters, and thermo-hygrometers to evaluate moisture levels. Once high-moisture areas in your home are identified, the real work can begin. A ceiling that is sagging or retaining water may have weep holes drilled into it to improve air circulation during the drying process.
If the water damage on your ceiling has leaked onto your tile floor, extraction is used to remove any standing water. For small localized cleanups such as this, portable extractors work quickly. The more moisture that is picked up now aids in hastening the drying phase.
Drying is crucial, and SERVPRO uses air movers and dehumidifiers working in tandem to eliminate moisture quickly. The air movers accelerate the rate at which moisture from wet surfaces accumulates in the air. This moisture is then absorbed by the dehumidifiers and turn the accumulated humid air into warm, dry air.
Once the affected area has been dried properly, disinfecting and deodorization of the kitchen begins. This process not only gets rid of odors, but eliminates the risk of mold developing in your ceiling, floor, or subflooring. Two types of deodorizers are commonly used: ULV foggers, which rely on an atomizer to deodorize and access hard-to-reach spaces; and thermal foggers, which release a dense fog of deodorant solution in order to address odors. EPA-registered disinfectant with antimicrobial and antifungal properties may be used instead for more contained damage.
