Why You Should Be Concerned with Water Removal Speed in Mt. Vernon
Rapid Water Extraction Mitigates Water Damage to Your Property
Floods can cause massive damage to any home they hit, causing immediate damage but also leaving behind copious amounts of water which can go on to cause further problems. Even if there isn't any standing water, which is to say water with measurable depth, there are damaging spots of water left in a flood's wake, whether it is in a puddle, soaked into materials, or merely in the air. SERVPRO brings large, industrial-grade tools such as water extractors and air movers to water removal jobs to get everything out as quickly as possible, to avoid these costly types of damage.
One of the most noticeable effects of slow water removal in Mt. Vernon water damage is warping of flooring and other materials. When some materials are faced with sudden, high volumes of water and become soaked through, they are liable to warp heavily. We help to minimize these effects by treating wood and other materials early on. If warping does occur, it may be repairable, but often makes the restoration job much more complex and expensive.
Mold growth is one of the biggest reasons to seek fast treatment for water damage in your home. Almost all mold damage that would normally result from a flood is avoidable if water is removed quick enough. On the other hand, slow responses can lead to massive mold infestations that can cost thousands more to remediate. Hiring a well-equipped and broadly certified company like SERVPRO means that you will have extra lines of defense against mold damage, such as specialized mold-resistant products and on-hand staff capable of dealing with mold as its symptoms appear.
One component of our water removal process is dehumidification. While this may seem a time and money-intensive process with little reward, it is critical in preventing metals from oxidizing. Many metals can tarnish and weaken when exposed to high levels of humidity and water, including materials like iron which are used commonly and widely throughout American homes. Some oxidation can completely ruin materials like pipes and mechanical equipment, so thorough dehumidification is a step in the water removal process that is relevant.
