Water is not a benign substance when it fills up spaces. Many building materials begin a devastating deterioration cycle after a soaking. Wood swells, absorbing the water and becoming distorted in shape. Metal rusts and pressed wood and paper products, commonly used as walls, ceilings, and trim, literally dissolve. As the structure of the building materials changes, they weaken and become unable to performs the jobs expected of them. Supporting walls bend, walls crumble, and flooring sags, warps, and buckles.
SERVPRO technicians are highly trained in the skill sets needed to remove all traces of excess water to restore the strength and integrity of waterlogged building materials. We start with a straightforward process -- pumping and extracting the standing water out of all the spaces in your business. Our pumps work even underwater, and high-efficiency extractors pull water out of carpeting, corners, and hidden recesses.
Expect our work crews to monitor moisture levels and use advanced scanning technology to locate water hiding behind walls and in the cells of cinder block foundations. All water must evacuate, or your home is at risk of secondary damage. Once the standing and trapped water is removed, we move on to drying residual moisture out of the structure and contents of the business. Industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers positioned throughout the flooded area continue to reduce moisture levels until the targets determined by our technicians are met.
SERVPRO VERO BEACH was called out to an emergency water call at a clubhouse in a commercial building. The picture shows the cause of the loss. Within two hours, the place was drying and the surrounding buildings did not even know an emergency had occurred.
