SERVPRO Uses State-of-The-Art Equipment to Restore Merritt Island Properties
SERVPRO Assists with Water Cleanup in Merritt Island Home
When it comes to water damage, you might think drying the property should happen first. The fact is, our technicians spend time extracting moisture to hasten the drying process, which inhibits loss.
Our SERVPRO location worked on water cleanup in a Merritt Island home, half the rooms in the household received water loss from a kitchen supply line break while the family was away overnight. They put in a call to our location a short time after arriving home. When our technicians arrived, after confirming the water was shut off, we split into two teams to remove room contents to another area of the home and extract water, while the other team scoped the house to identify all areas of water migration.
We did multiple passes over water-saturated areas in the home to pull up as much moisture as possible. The reason that we do extra passes and spend time on the water cleanup step is that it lessens the amount of time needed for drying. The less time building materials and contents are exposed to water - the more of a chance for saving through our proprietary restoration techniques.
Correct setup of the drying equipment is crucial. When we dry a property, we are not using fans to blow air on wet areas in a home. There is a science behind how we position our air movers. We configure them in a way that they blow directly across surfaces, which starts a chain reaction that causes moisture to rise to the surface where it is captured and taken off-site by our dehumidifiers. This cycle rapidly lowers the moisture levels in rooms.
Before drying, we moved the furniture and tables from the affected rooms to an area of the home that did not receive water loss. The subflooring showed no elevated moisture issues, and because the family contacted our SERVPRO location so quickly, the water did not have a chance to wick into sheetrock. Once dry, we cleaned and disinfected the affected surfaces to leave the rooms fresh and clean.
