SERVPRO of South Orlando Offers Water Damage Remediation Services

Chair floating in water in South Orlando home Sometimes water damage is extensive, and many times, it seems as if it's not.

Our Water Damage Detection Skill is Why SERVPRO is the Orlando Industry Leader

If water did not spread when leaks or appliance malfunctions spilled fluid across a floor, Orlando residents might not need specialized assistance. When in a liquid state, however, water moves, seeking the path of least resistance. Any cracks around the floor, baseboard, or between the strips or planks can provide water entry. Our familiarity with the characteristics of water migration is why we develop workable recovery solutions.

We Use Advanced Technology to Follow the Water

Our crews arrive armed with a broad range of water damage detection tools. Orlando homeowners might believe that the worst is over when visible water disappears. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) trained technicians on our team know differently, why we waste no time establishing the pathways water took into hidden spaces. A thermo-hygrometer establishes the overall temperature and humidity levels. Thermal imaging cameras can point to wet areas, but we need the supplemental data provided by moisture detection tools. We employ both penetrating and non-penetrating moisture meters to evaluate structural components and fixtures' moisture content, such as carpeting.

Next Steps After Discovery of Hidden Water

Even seemingly solid drywall absorbs some water when exposed to the leak and then allows more to pass through into building cavities. Our team must determine the most efficient way to release that water. Speedy water extraction and drying mitigates or halts the leak's damage and has the added benefit of avoiding secondary damage like mold growth. Controlled demolition is needed to inhibit the ancillary harm, gain access to the water, and enhance drying efforts. Our team has developed expertise in making flood cuts or punching weep holes throughout hundreds of water damage projects to release water and improve airflow for efficient drying. Practice makes proficient and is why SERVPRO excels at managing and mitigating migrating water.

Our technicians' solid foundation in both the theory and moisture detection practice is why SERVPRO of South Orlando delivers successful outcomes for our community's residents. Call today at (407) 985-3200 for a quick assessment and prompt implementation of an appropriate project plan.
