You Can Rely on Our Team of Professionals to Repair Your Homes Structural Damage After Water Damage Occurs

Water damage is a nuisance that no homeowner wants to endure. Not only can this damage create the need for extensive cleanup, but it can cause problems even after cleanup has occurred. Mold, crumbled drywall, and warped flooring are just a few of the many issues that can come up without the tools and techniques necessary to restore your home. However, there is a team that can help.

If your Brandon home needs water damage cleanup that can start as soon as possible, you can count on certified SERVPRO technicians to get the job done right. These professionals receive extensive training in IICRC standards and techniques, which help preserve the consistent criteria for cleanliness and safety in a variety of water-related disasters. SERVPRO prioritizes restoration and repair over replacement whenever it is safe to do so to minimize loss for homeowners.

Why Professionals Can Help

When you choose SERVPRO for your water damage mitigation needs, you do not just get a cleanup crew: you get a team that is extremely knowledgeable of the damage that water can do to a structure. To illustrate:

  • Within minutes, water can spread throughout the property and saturate everything it touches. Porous surfaces like floors, walls, upholstery, and fabrics quickly absorb water. Furniture finishes can bleed, which can stain nearby surfaces, particularly carpets. Paper goods and photographs may swell and warp.
  • Within the first 24 hours, drywall starts to swell and break down, and metal surfaces can tarnish. Furniture frames can swell and crack while dyes and inks from cloth and paper can spread and stain nearby porous surfaces. Odors may become evident.
  • Within two days to one week of exposure to water, mold, and mildew can grow and spread on your property. Structural materials like doors, windows, and studs start to swell and warp from exposure. Furniture and wood flooring can deform even further and show signs of mold growth. Paint can blister, and there is a possibility of biohazard contamination on the property.

Cleanup and restoration needs for the structure grow exponentially after a week or more of moisture exposure.

How SERVPRO Saves the Day

Because SERVPRO knows the ins and outs of water damage mitigation, you can expect a high standard of clean from this team. On top of that, these technicians have the tools necessary to remove water and disinfect surfaces. The first step after assessing the situation and forming a plan of action is to extract the water to facilitate drying. Desiccant dehumidifiers can be used to take care of structural damages. Low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers LGR works on upholstery, fabrics, and other porous surfaces.
