Water Damage in Dallas--Should You DIY or Look to a Professional Remediation Company?
The Difference Between DIY and Professional Water Damage Cleanup in Dallas Home
When water damage strikes a Big D home once it hits your floor, water migrates quickly-even if it is a small amount of water from a busted pipe under a bathroom sink or overflow from a malfunctioning washing machine or dishwasher. If the spill happens upstairs, the inclination to travel downward due to gravity can leave you with water in the subflooring and floor joists and a damaged ceiling downstairs.
DIY cleanup efforts for water damage in a Dallas home are sometimes not adequate to avoid mold or foul odors. Standard methods of home cleanup are:
- Blotting water with rags or mops
- Using household fans to dry floors
- Laying towels on wet carpet to absorb water
Why SERVPRO? These home remedies for water damage in Dallas can work as long as the water is surface only and has not penetrated the subflooring or ran behind baseboards. In those cases, the excessive moisture has the potential to create conditions for mold infestations as well as unpleasant odors. Our certified technicians have specialized equipment for both extraction and drying. Plus our advanced moisture detection devices ensure that anywhere in the residence water travels, we find it and remove it.
Our professional extraction equipment includes special attachments for upholstery and carpeting, so water does not remain the padding. Our air movers create warm, dry air in a superior fashion to household fans. The high-velocity air causes embedded moisture to rise where our dehumidifiers remove it from the property.
Even clean water spills have the potential for bacterial growth, and bacteria equals odors. Our certified technicians thoroughly clean and disinfect all affected surfaces to both sanitize the home and leave it smelling clean and fresh without any lingering water odors.
SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas at (214) 361-7887 has the equipment and experience to return properties with water damage to their preloss condition. We take calls 24/7 and are onsite quickly to make the water loss "Like it never even happened."
