Overlooked Aspects When Dealing with Water Damage

You might find Dallas, TX, interesting for various reasons, including infamous historical aspects such as the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963. Dealey Plaza and the Sixth Floor Museum chronicles the life and legacy of JFK. The Dallas Arts District is among the largest in the country, while the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden features seasonal flower displays and themed gardens. The city also hosts annual events like the North Texas Irish Festival, Deep Ellum Arts Festival, and Dallas International Film Festival.

Water restoration outcomes in Dallas properties vary depending on factors such as the amount of water released or the period before discovering the problem and starting mitigation processes. In some cases, though, the people handling the procedure can affect its outcome based on how they tackle individual tasks. Ignoring or overlooking some aspects can worsen the situation or prolong the problem. SERVPRO® technicians evaluate your property and determine the necessary response.

Some aspects you might overlook 

  • Checking restoration material quality
  • Locating moisture in hidden areas
  • Choosing drying techniques
  • Assessing utilities like HVAC and electric systems

Many materials ravaged by moisture are unsalvageable, thus requiring replacement after the incident. If you are not keen when choosing replacements, you might have inferior materials and future problems. SERVPRO crews preserve pieces of carpets, drywall, and other materials removed from the structure to ensure any replacements are of the same quality.

Leaving hidden moisture within structural areas or contents creates many issues, including odors, rot, and swelling. Identifying hidden wetness requires appropriate resources such as thermal cameras and penetrative moisture meters. Our SERVPRO crews use the information gathered to choose a drying system. We prefer a closed drying system for most incidents since we can use air movers and dehumidifiers to control the drying process better.

Water can affect the habitability or usability of your premises. One of the reasons you may notice changes is the effects moisture has on utilities like electric cables and HVAC systems. Rusting electrical components and contamination in HVAC ducts are some typical effects moisture causes.
