Reliable Water Damage Restoration Options in Tarpon Springs
SERVPRO’s Water Damage Remediation Process
Mild to severe effects can result from water damage when heavy storms, leaky pipes, hurricanes and flash floods strike. Tarpon Springs is not an exception to such challenges, and thus it is prudent for its residents to know the right options to consider when they face such situations. If you fail to treat such incidents as emergencies, your property is likely to suffer further damage and make some of the contents unsalvageable.
There are three categories of water quality that we expect when a water damage disaster strikes in Tarpon Springs. Our SERVPRO technicians anticipate to deal with clean, unsanitary or black water and the source of the water determines the category of the water. There are chances of microbial contamination porous materials such as wallboards, textiles, carpets, insulation and ceiling tiles. That means the remediation process should start as soon as possible.
Before our SERVPRO technicians can start restoring your property, we observe some safety aspects. We evaluate the possibility of exposure to toxic gases, electrical shock, and any structural integrity. If we are dealing with black or grey water, we put on protective gear and discourage those without it from the site. We isolate the area and put in place warning signs and barriers.
The next step is to identify the water source and then eliminate, repair or contain it. We then remove the water by using extraction and absorption tools. We use equipment such as wet-vacuums, pumps, and squeegees at this stage. The drying process then follows after that and heaters, fans, dehumidifiers and HVAC systems may be set up by our team. Though opening windows can increase the rate of drying, dehumidifiers are more suitable for the job, especially during warm weather.
