Flood Damage Can Leave Your Cape Canaveral Home Damp From Trapped Humidity
Storms And Flood Damage In Cape Canaveral Can Leave Your Home Damp From Trapped Humidity
Cool breezes during and after a rain shower can fill your home in Cape Canaveral with humidity. Closing windows when the air outside becomes either too warm or too chilly lets this newly introduced humidity stay inside. Mold and other microbes can begin growing in areas that contain excessive amounts of dampness, such as clothing and other highly absorbent substances.
Your property in Cape Canaveral doesn't need to sustain direct flood damage to experience many of the same effects. SERVPRO wants you to know that the same services can help protect your home from smaller incidents that can spread damage and decay within your property. A roof that leaks, a cracked foundation, and incorrectly sealed windows can let rainwater into a house and start destroying its interior.
In places where flood damage has already started taking its toll on materials, such as disintegrating walls, SERVPRO can remove the damaged area. Doing so keeps the moisture in those sections from affecting non-damaged elements and also helps reduce the amount of time our drying machines need to run to finish the job. Open spaces in walls also make it easier to dry out the interior portion of a wall, reducing the chances that microbial problems develop.
Throughout your house, trapped humidity can make the air uncomfortable to breathe. Because air that becomes too dry also poses problems for both many furnishings and materials in the typical house as well as for occupants, we monitor the drying process with moisture meters. These devices can test any of the materials in your home, helping us correctly dry out the humidity inside your home.
We pinpoint damper areas and differentiate those from places that do not contain excessive moisture, placing our drying equipment where it can perform the most efficiently. Air movers can whisk moisture out of walls and floors, pushing water vapor out of your home. Using containment methods, we can also dry specific sections of your home that always seem damper than other areas and then help you maintain a drier atmosphere by installing a low-maintenance dehumidifier.
SERVPRO of Central Brevard Wants to help you keep your home near the Kennedy Space Center or the Patrick Air Force Base within acceptable moisture levels.
