Mistakes To Avoid During Water Damage Events In Hampton
When Your Hampton Home Suffers Water Intrusion Rely on SERVPRO to Mitigate Damages
Water damage usually is more than what comes to your mind when you read the phrase. While we only expect to deal with water, there is more destruction that results whenever such incidents hit our property. Mold and electrical hazards are part of the expensive damage that your Hampton structure may experience during those stressing moments.
You might make a mistake if you look at the surface and imagine it is the only water damage challenge to address in your Hampton home. The work of SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians is to look beyond the obvious and trace that water which might be under the carpets and walls. The use of specialized tools such as moisture meters and sensors makes that possible. With these devices, we can conduct a thorough inspection that allows us to identify the content of moisture on your property and specific locations.
Another mistake that most homeowners make is attempting to pump the water from a flooded basement. While it appears to be a straightforward job, there are hidden dangers that need professional intervention. For instance, wet foundation walls and ceilings might collapse as a result of water damage. We inspect all that before we can start the restoration process, and if necessary we perform necessary demolitions to prevent any possible hazards during the process.
After pumping out all the standing water, it is time to begin the drying process. At that stage we set-up dehumidifiers and air movers. It is important to call our SERVPRO team as soon as you can to increase the chances of salvaging most of your contents. For instance, if you delay and we find out that the drywall and flooring have 25 - 50 % moisture, retrieving them might not be possible. Once drying is complete, we clean the surfaces and sanitize them using antimicrobial agents to decrease the chances of mold growth.
