There may be times when water damage may not be apparent as the source may not be visible until it’s too late. Even the smallest leak can turn into a massive problem if left unattended and unnoticed for long enough.
Firstly when dealing with any water damage, we ensure all areas are adequately dried. We use a variety of equipment depending on the scope of the water damage from air movers to dehumidifiers to force dry any affected areas so that they may be adequately cleaned and repaired and to minimize further damage. When you give our water damage professionals here at SERVPRO a call, we will first identify and stop the source of water on the scene, determine the level of damage and contamination, and begin the drying and repair process. By quickly removing all moisture from the premises, the chance for mold and bacteria growth is significantly limited as well as the potential for any further damage by standing water to be caused.
