SERVPRO Offers Quicker Restoration of Seattle Homes after Water Damage Due to Better Understanding

Water intrusion incidents happen without any warning leaving a trail of destruction in your home. Apart from removing the water, other steps, such as cleaning, stain removal, and even rebuilding some parts of the home, may be necessary. Calling SERVPRO to handle the restoration can help you get quicker results because we have a deeper understanding of the process along with much experience.

Anticipation of Problems

Properties in Seattle hit by water damage undergo different stages of deterioration depending on the amount of water spilled, and the time it takes to restore them. Some problems like rusting, rotting in wood, or even mold development, which are challenging to address, happen in the later stages of the loss. Anticipating such problems can ensure correct actions are taken early, thus preventing them from developing. Our SERVPRO technicians expedite water removal, especially around hardwood floors. We can also remove some boards to prevent buckling when the floor swells after absorbing water.

Understanding Material Structure

The various materials that make up the house are unique in many ways, including having different internal structures. The structure affects absorbency and ability to hold water for long, which can have several implications, including fueling mold growth, long after the water spill incident happens. Our SERVPRO technicians have extensive knowledge of various building materials. For example, we understand the arrangement and size of pores in woods such as Red Cedar. We also understand whether a specific house has a tight, loose, or moderate envelope and its impact on the drying process.  The envelope means several things, including the roof, ceiling, foundation, and finished floors, among other aspects.

Variety of Sophisticated Equipment

The restoration process involves several steps performed together or separately. Most of the steps require equipment to complete. We have sufficient equipment making it easier to complete such steps. Some equipment can also shorten the process. For example, using injecti-dry systems and drying mats, it is possible to remove water from floorboards without demolishing such areas, which can become quite costly. There again, we try to restore and not replace building materials and internal fixtures.

Better understating of water loss helps improve the restoration process. Call SERVPRO of Central Seattle at (206) 282-9500 to help address any issue you face after the loss, “Like it never even happened.”
