What to Do When You Spot Water Damage
If you have identified water damage in your home, consider these preventive measures that can minimize repair and renovation costs after a disaster:
- Shut off water for the affected area.
- Do not use electronics in a water-damaged area and shut off power for these parts of your home to minimize risk.
- Use towels, mops, and other clean items to soak up loose water.
- Use fans and maximize ventilation to facilitate drying as much as possible.
- Call a professional disaster mitigation team immediately to restore your home and address potential damage behind or underneath walls, ceilings, and floors.
SERVPRO's Scientific Approach
SERVPRO uses various moisture measurement tools to address multiple materials and plot out a course of action for extraction, drying, and disinfection with EPA-registered cleaners. These tools vary from moisture sensors that evaluate the moisture levels of soft materials to penetrating and non-penetrating moisture meters to monitor layers of material during the drying process. Technicians also use thermo-hygrometers, which assess both temperature and humidity.
The goal during drying is to restore your structures and possessions to moisture levels that would be normal for them. What could be considered "dry" for carpeting or drywall is not necessarily the same for hardwood floors or leather upholstery. Technicians use a thorough approach to moisture analysis during cleanup. This process includes testing the same spots on surfaces several times with various measurement tools to ensure accuracy.
SERVPRO of Kent is always available to ensure that your home looks "Like it never even happened." Call (253) 850-1500 today if you need a disaster mitigation crew fast.
