SERVPRO Delivers Timely Water Restoration Services in Parkland Properties

If there is a leaking pipe or appliance at your Parkland property, then you are already in trouble. However, you can take action to limit the problems triggered by the intruding water. Such intervention is known as water damage mitigation.

The type of actions needed during water damage mitigation at your Parkland home varies depending on the factors surrounding the incident, such as the amount of water spilled or whether the source is clean or not. The advantage of involving SERVPRO is that our teams are well versed with all types of damage and can therefore take action to limit the problems you face.

Mitigation Can Help Take Care of: 

  • Inconveniences like relocating from the house
  • Mold contamination
  • Unchecked deterioration of structural materials

With the increased humidity, slick surfaces, and electrical hazards, staying in a house after water intrusion can be inconvenient. Timely mitigation helps manage the problems so that you do not have to relocate. It also prevents severe structural damages such as rotting, warping, or mold development.

Effective Water Damage Mitigation Requires:

  • Understanding the extent of water damage 
  • Choosing the most effective approaches
  • Using specialized restoration equipment

Extended water exposure is detrimental to many structural materials since it causes rust, swelling, dyes running, stains, and many other issues. Such damage is not limited only to areas with direct water contact, such as floors. Moisture also reaches concealed areas like wall cavities and cabinets. It also affects materials in elevated areas such as ceilings, especially with hygroscopic properties. 

Different strategies help ensure the mitigation steps taken address all issues. For instance, our SERVPRO technicians use various moisture detection tools, including thermo-hygrometers, thermal cameras, and moisture meters to probe the level of moisture migration. We also evaluate restoration actions to determine what is more effective. For instance, extraction is 1200 times faster than other actions such as dehumidification.

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland uses water damage mitigation approaches that limit the problems you have to address. Call us at (954) 973-4130. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
