Contact the SERVPRO Emergency Response Team ASAP when water damages your Brandon home
Time is of the essence when dealing with water damage. Clean water can quickly become contaminated if left sitting too long, and secondary damage may occur. Our IICRC technicians use professional equipment and techniques to ensure the least amount of loss as possible.
What Can I Do To Avoid More Serious Damage?
SERVPRO Technicians Remove Excess Moisture Promptly to Prevent Secondary Damage
Water cleanup in Brandon requires a fast response. It may be too late for primary water damage such as warping of wood floors and ruined carpet backing. However, you may mitigate secondary damage such as wallpaper or ceiling tiles crumbling or dangerous mold growth if cleaned and dried quickly. It is particularly important in Florida because the relative humidity (RH) is already high, averaging about 74% outdoors, potentially allowing secondary damage to occur more quickly.
What Are Some Things to Consider When Drying My Home?
• The goal is to evaporate excess moisture from the contents of your home into the air.
• Do not over-cool the air in a warm, moist room, or you run the risk of reach the dew point, which may cause condensation to form, causing more problems.
• Increasing the airflow with industrial-strength air-movers removes the dense boundary layer near the surface helps dry the structure more quickly.
• Dehumidification also helps dry the impacted areas by removing excess moisture from the air and exhausting warm, dry air.
Florida is unique in the amount of moisture and humidity constantly present in our environment, so it is imperative to take extra care in addressing water damage right away. Since water can become trapped potentially causing severe long-term issues, having professional assistance by our knowledgeable technicians gives you that peace of mind after damage to your home.
