How to Handle Water Saturation Problems

How to handle water saturation problems. 

Unfortunately, plumbing wears down over time. Older material or simply heavy wear and tear damage the structure, exposing the commercial property to leaks and breaks. The water damage requires prompt attention as it could lead to further damage therefore, property owners should do the following three things when faced with water saturation.

  1. Determine How Much of the Space Was Impacted

Rely on a trusted and experienced company like SERVPRO Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr to examine how much of the room was impacted. When soaked drywall or flooring sits too long, the area grows musty and becomes a breeding ground for fungus. A SERVPRO technician uses sophisticated equipment to diagnose contaminated sections, avoiding future growths. Following established guidelines and protocols, the examiner can provide a thorough overview of the space’s issues.

  1. Assess Materials

Mold thrives on water damage, quickly multiplying and spreading with the building. Minimize trouble by eliminating drenched, porous objects. These things cannot be thoroughly disinfected since the organisms absorb deep within. SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr will follow standards put in place, to dispose of infected material. 

  1. Focus on Drying Out Space

Effective water cleanup treatment is possible for certain items. Extract as much water as possible. Then make a call to SERVPRO who will utilize the appropriate equipment to handle the situation. 

When water damage is spotted, move into action, focusing on getting rid of the dampness as best as possible. Controlling that factor is vital to getting things back in order. Water damage doesn’t have business hours and disaster can strike at any time, luckily, SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr is open 24/7 ready to help you and give you the best experience when dealing with disaster.

What is Secondary Water Damage?

2/27/2021 (Permalink)

What is Secondary Water Damage

Hidden moisture can do significant damage to many components in your home. If moisture is left behind after a water issue arises, the following long-term damage can begin to fester.

Mold: This quick growing microorganism only needs 24 hours to start growing which can lead to its spores spreading within days. Even a small patch of wet carpet left unchecked can create the right conditions for black mold to grow.

Electrical: Water that has seeped into the wall can affect the outlets. If water gets trapped, it may increase the potential for electrical shock.

Corrosion: Hidden pipes and fixtures in the home made of metal can begin to rust and corrode in wet conditions, eventually leading to potential bigger water issues like a pipe burst.

Wood Rot: As well as being an inviting place for black mold to grow, the wood elements of your home will begin to rot if not properly dried. This may lead to a loss in the home’s structural integrity.

Mitigate the Risk

SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr provides timely and professional assessments and cleanup which can be necessary to avoid hidden damage from becoming a catastrophic accident. When there is high humidity, it is even more important to ensure that dehumidification is done to stop water damage from spreading everywhere.  Upon their arrival SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr will extract any standing water, remove saturated materials from the affected areas, and use air movers. Opening windows, depending on the humidity levels outside may slow down secondary damage until SERVPRO Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr arrives.  

While a small water issue may not seem like anything to worry about, hidden damage may be lurking. Immediately addressing the issue can help keep the situation from escalating to a huge problem. SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr will address the situation and answer any questions you have, through the drying process.

  1. How Does Smoke Impact Your Building?

Smoke reacts differently with each material in your building. Also, the type and temperature of the fire can lead to different types of smoke damage. One way that all types of smoke affect your building is by hiding in tiny cracks. There, they go undetected and can lead to your business smelling like smoke. Special products SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr provides are necessary to get rid of these particles. 

  1. What Is the Cleaning Process for Smoke?

This must be done as soon as possible after a fire. Thankfully SERVPRO of Mount Ephraim / Bellmawr is a 24/7 highly rated company and can get to you quickly. 

  1. What Can Be Salvaged?

  1. Can Upholstery Be Cleaned?

Today, some special equipment and products can find hidden smoke particles and remove them from porous upholstery.
