Don't Waste Time! Some Facts to Start Effective Water Damage Remediation in Tallahassee
Scoping Helps in Restoration of Water Damage in Tallahassee
Cases of water damage require immediate action to restore the property to its preloss state. However, starting restoration processes without doing some evaluation first can lead to problems that can affect the outcome or delay the process. Before doing restoration in Tallahassee properties experiencing water loss, we do thorough scoping first.
Every case of water damage in Tallahassee is unique, and therefore most homeowners are not sure what immediate effects an incident has and what processes follow. Our SERVPRO technicians first reassure the homeowner since they have vast experience dealing with similar cases. We then inspect the contents and the structure to figure out the necessary drying and safety procedures.
Scoping helps establish the source of water and whether it has stopped. It also helps establish whether clean or gray water is involved and how long the water has been standing in the building. If pooling water sits for too long, it can deteriorate from one level of contamination to another so a situation that initially involved clean water may end up becoming a gray water loss. Our SERVPRO technicians can fix small leaks to stop more water from flowing into the building. Based on the amount of water in the building, we can select the right water extraction equipment including high capacity ones such as the truck-mounted water extractors.
An evaluation also helps establish all areas the water reaches. Even areas far away from the source might be affected since the water seeps into porous materials then migrates widely. Leaving materials wet after restoring the property can lead to other problems such as microbial growth. Our SERVPRO technicians use sophisticated moisture detection tools including moisture sensors, moisture meters, and FLIR thermal cameras. Using such equipment, we can tell whether walls, cabinets, baseboards, carpets, ducts or crawl spaces need drying. Such information helps set drying goals.
