Water damage remediation can cause chaos in your home. Contact SERVPRO today for assistance.

Mitigating the Various Effects of Water Damage in Your Dallas Home 

If that water damage incident in your home is not urgently attended to, then long-term wetness can ruin your contents and interior finishes in one way or the other. Prompt actions can prevent further damage and reduce the chances of having to replace more items than necessary. Let us look at some of the processes that we use to restore various structures within your Dallas home.

Permanent repairs in your Dallas property may not take place immediately after a water damage event unless the building is thoroughly dry. For instance, the subfloor, which is mainly composed of layers of submerged wood, may swell after coming into contact with the water. When attending to such situations, our SERVPRO technicians replace the affected sections to prevent possible buckling. It is also essential to inspect for warping before new flooring can be installed.

When wood sits in water for an extended period, it may eventually start to swell, break, or crack. If that happens, it is normal for the wood joints to become weak since they are fragile. Our SERVPRO technicians have the equipment to extract water from your home as well as dry and clean your wooden furniture. By thoroughly drying the wood, we protect it from possible mold growth.

Our SERVPRO technicians also inspect the state of the structure's insulation. We remove any matted insulation, which is usually popular with rockwood and cellulose insulations. On the other hand, it is possible to clean and dry fiberglass insulation since it does not permanently lose its insulating capability, even after being exposed to wetness. Though, the insulation’s vapor barriers may also slow the drying speed. Where necessary, we drill holes into wall cavities and then force air through the holes to enhance evaporation. We can also remove wet drywall when we find much moisture.

At SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas, We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster whether it is in your commercial or residential property. We are experienced in water, fire, storm, and mold damage cleaning and restoration. Call (214) 361-7887 and get a chance of working with our highly trained team.
