Quality Solutions for Water Damage Caused by Leaking Pipe In Merritt Island Home

Having a water leak in your home is never pleasant, but it is especially unpleasant if you were away while a pipe leaked into your kitchen. Walking into your home and seeing standing water is not what anyone wants to see. After you turn off the water main and ensure that no more water is coming out of the pipe, it is essential to quickly remove the excess water from your home to mitigate further damages such as mold infestations or buckled flooring.

Water removal in Merritt Island can be challenging, so you should have the water extracted promptly and effectively. As the homeowner, it is helpful to sop up as much water as possible to stop the moisture from permeating into the tile grout and causing further damage. Having professionals come in to finish the job helps to ensure no further damage to your home.

SERVPRO restoration specialists use portable extractor equipment to suck up excess water. Portable extractors typically have a long hose that fits into every corner of your kitchen. After several extractions pass, technicians continue the drying process by using axial and centrifugal air movers to enhance evaporation at the surface level to shorten drying time. 

As the water on the surface of your kitchen evaporates, the air right about the wet flooring is saturated and cooler. Air movers create high-velocity airflow, enhancing evaporation in conjunction with dehumidifiers that replace this cooler, moist layer with warmer, drier air. Air movers take the dry air from the dehumidifiers and move it throughout the impacted space. 

By using moisture meters or infrared cameras, technicians can determine that water penetrated through the vapor barriers in your kitchen wall, they may decide to use a structural cavity system. Some systems use vents attached to air movers while others require small drilled holes under cabinets or into walls to insert attached hoses to direct airflow into a wall cavity. Completely restoring wall cavities to preloss condition helps deter dangerous mold growth.
