How Vital is Fast Action After Water Damage Occurs In My Glendale Home?
Expediting Water Removal In Glendale.
Sometimes, we deal with water removal issues where the water is not initially visible as the culprit. In the case of a leaking roof or pipe leaking in a ceiling or wall, an amount of time can pass before the telltale signs of water damage begin to appear. Some of the components that make up drywall can act as sponges, soaking up water and spreading it further. While that is occurring, mold can move into the compromised areas, compounding the problem.
When you notice a wet spot or an odor, call SERVPRO. We will use our state-of-the-art equipment to restore your water damaged Glendale home to pre-damage condition. We can trace the source of the water coming into the home and stop it. Then we will begin the process of removing any standing water using the pumps and reversing the damage it has caused.
Our technicians use powerful air movers and dehumidifiers to rapidly dry the areas and remove residual moisture. Then, antifungal and antibacterial cleaners are used to fully clean and eliminate conditions for mold and mold growth. Often, hand cleaning is enough to remove odors if stronger deodorization is required, we have industrial fogging machines that penetrate deeply, overtaking and eliminating unpleasant odors left in both the building materials and furnishings.
The final step in restoration by SERVPRO leaves your home looking like it did before the water removal process. We will replace damaged drywall, flooring or other necessary home repairs, including painting and carpeting.
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.
