Water Damage Homes and Real Estate Affected by Water Damage can be Made Like New Again Water Damage Increases in Tallahassee If Leaks Are Not Repaired

Water Damage in the State Capital Is Restored by SERVPRO

If you possess real estate, either your own home or rental properties, you're aware that many things can damage your investment. Instead of doing repairs yourself, you should have a professional crew that is experienced in water damage and the related problems that moisture and standing water can cause.

Damaged Interiors can Create a Loss of Enjoyment or Rental Income
Water damage in a Tallahassee home occurs quite often, and should always be taken care of immediately. Even if walls are not left soaking wet, absorbed water can wick up walls, damaging them. If water damage has happened upstairs, because an upper floor bathroom has had flooding or even a window was left open during a heavy storm, water can flow down the walls into lower stories. The water may not always be visible, either. Equipment like moisture sensors, thermal hygrometers, and infrared devices are used by SERVPRO technicians to detect the presence of water that is hidden from view.

Flooring and its coverings need to be dried quickly, and the underlay plus any supporting beams need to be inspected for damage. We employ powerful pumps, and wet vacs to extract as much water as possible before the use of drying equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers. If this is done quickly enough after water has been deposited by rains or by overflowing bathroom faucets, the damage caused by the presence of water can be minimalized.

 
Restoring Water Damaged Interiors is Less Costly When Water has Been Quickly Removed
This is because less drying time and fewer repairs are likely to be needed. This reduces the cost, as well. When fewer walls, hardwood flooring, furniture and other interior structures are damaged, the cost of materials and repairs decreases. It also means that your home or real estate property will be in habitable condition once again sooner. Water damage can create other issues too, such as bacterial and mold growth that can create adverse health effects to people. Our IICRC certified technicians from SERVPRO salvage as much as possible.
