Experiencing Damage in Several Ways
Jacksonville water damage can happen swiftly and from multiple sources. As leading restoration professionals, we can prepare for different types of compromised home conditions with our training and hands-on experience. Common threats include:
- Leaking Pipes – Most commonly, water damage is a product of leaks and burst pipes. Aging utilities become vulnerable over time with various influences wearing down the plumbing materials or external forces like extreme temperature fluctuations.
- Broken Appliances – Washing machines and dishwashers can fail under certain conditions, allowing leaks from the hoses feeding water to the unit or escaping pools of water gathered for the cleaning process.
- Flooding – Natural flooding can rapidly invade a home with little warning, spreading out through multiple rooms and leaving a pooling mess with debris and mud across the floors. Cleanup of these emergencies must get calculated and carefully considered to avoid spreading contaminants.
- Accidents/Spills – Accidents can also account for many water emergencies SERVPRO professionals help resolve. From an overflowing sink and bathtub to countless other issues, we know how to help.
The Threat of Pooling Water
When professionals first arrive at a damaged residence, they are often met with the visual of standing water when the disaster has introduced enough liquid to the impacted areas. With situations like burst pipes or flooding, standing water can be especially threatening, as there could be several inches of pooling continually working to absorb into exposed building materials and contents. To overcome these threats, SERVPRO professionals must utilize multiple extraction devices from our inventory, like wet vacuums, light wands, and submersible pumps.
Clearing Moisture from Building Materials
Drying is the universal need of all water damage restoration projects that our SERVPRO team undertakes. As leading restoration professionals, we arrive with cutting-edge drying and evaporative tools to make a significant difference over a shorter contact time. The foundational elements of drying remain the same, combining the evaporation possible with appropriately placed air movers and the humidity regulation of a sufficient number of dehumidification units. It is often also beneficial for our professionals to work to manipulate the temperature of the drying zone to increase drying production and raise the thresholds of relative humidity ceilings.
How Do You Know It Is Dry?
Thoroughly drying your residence can only be done with thorough follow-up on evaporation progress and the moist conditions of the property. SERVPRO must re-evaluate wet materials for their current needs, and damp pockets get tracked through wall systems and structural assemblies to ensure that wet areas are not left to facilitate mold colonies. Multiple approaches can help our experienced professionals monitor drying progress throughout the household, including:
- Detection devices
- Moisture sensors
Water Damage Repairs for Your Home
Repairs can be required to return your home to preloss condition after flooding or burst pipes. Immediate repairs and assistance can be necessary when we arrive, such as replacing portions of the plumbing system and broken fixtures allowing for leaks. When controlled demolition eliminates installed building materials and structural systems, our professionals must take the final stages of restoration and recovery and replace these to their original appearance “Like it never even happened.”
