Water Damage Our Crew At SERVPRO Has The Experience And Equipment To Restore Your Water Damaged Orlando Home Failure to remove the moisture absorbed through materials exposed to the water can result in structural weakness and mold growth.

Efficient Water Cleanup For Your Orlando Residence

Emergencies that affect your Orlando home come in all shapes and sizes. From slow, persistent leaks to substantial water loss incidents, damages like these require professional expertise to overcome. Too often homeowners become convinced that conventional cleaning and drying methods can adequately correct the effects of water damages, but this is rarely the truth. Failure to remove the moisture absorbed through materials exposed to the water can result in structural weakness and secondary effects like mold growth.

Many situations only require our dedicated professionals to arrive quickly for focused water cleanup at your Orlando home. With our efficient equipment, we can often make short work of the spread of the moisture and restore any of the adverse effects present in the exposed materials. It is when the situation has not gotten addressed quickly that potential problems begin to occur.

From the moment that a water incident occurs, exposed materials begin to absorb the moisture. While a homeowner could believe they have sufficiently dealt with the situation by providing the appearance of a dry area, moisture can persist out of sight in the flooring materials, drywall, wall cavities, ceiling materials, and more. Our thermal imagery technology can help to identify moisture pockets that exist out of sight to steer our SERVPRO technicians to where our air movers and dehumidifiers should get set up.

In cases where moisture persists for days beyond the initial incident, the possibility of mold growth increases dramatically. Mold spores only require mild temperatures and damp areas to colonize, so without proper drying, the organism can seat and thrive within the organic materials throughout the affected area. This growth poses a significant risk to the structural integrity of the host materials as well as poses potential health effects for the occupants of the house, requiring professional remediation from our SERVPRO technicians.

While some water damage incidents might feel straightforward, homeowners should exercise caution when handling damp areas of their property. You can always depend on the experience and efficient equipment of our SERVPRO of Apopka-Wekiva rapid response team to help. Give SERVPRO a call anytime at (407) 788-3124.
