The Ways Water Mitigation Protects Your Property

Leftover dampness from a water leak can remain within your home’s atmosphere long after you have fixed a leaky pipe. Our professional water mitigation team can help by ensuring your Jacksonville residence experiences appropriately dry conditions.

Prompt and proper water mitigation of your Jacksonville home provides more than one type of protection. If any of these conditions have become established within your residence, then you can trust SERVPRO to eliminate them. A lack of excessive and unnecessary moisture protects you and your property from secondary damage that even small amounts of water can cause.

The conditions that you should be aware of so you can protect your home include:

  • Microbial overgrowth, 
  • Softening and weakening of porous materials, and
  • Unwanted odors.

Microbes like mold or mildew can stain clothing, ruin keepsakes, destroy paintings, and much more. Microbes have deep-reaching tendril-like structures that dig into whatever it lives on, leaving discolorations behind when someone cleans the surface.

Damp pockets in your dwelling can lead to the destruction of materials like drywall and carpeting. Dry rotting takes place slowly but is very preventable. Repairs are almost impossible, making replacements the norm.

Foul odors that do not seem to come from any specific location might stem from stagnant water near the air intake vents for your HVAC system. Air fresheners and room deodorizers cannot do anything substantial because the next time the heat or A/C starts, a new batch of smelly air gets pushed into your home’s living space.

When SERVPRO performs water mitigation, we use special detection equipment that shows where the intrusive water originates. When doing this work, we drain or otherwise remove any water or moisture present. Then, we can seal off the sources of water, which helps keep your home from becoming damp in the future. 

Call SERVPRO of Pender / West Onslow Counties when your home is giving you problems at (910) 319-0600. We can help find existing problems and get things fixed for you.
