SERVPRO Can Restore Your Home after Water Damage to its Pre-Loss Condition

When your home or business experiences water damage, you need restoration services to return your property to its former condition. When in such a state, it is the equipment that professionals in the industry use that make the difference. As a resident of Dallas, act quickly and contact certified service providers to control the damage and know what to replace and what is restorable.

Our SERVPRO technicians undergo training and know how to approach the various forms of water damage that are common in Dallas. Before the actual restoration begins, we conduct a site inspection to analyze the degree of damage as well as possible hazards. At this time we identify sagging ceilings, electrical risks, compromised floors, and faulty plumbing. We also stop the source of the water if it is still running.

If for instance, when we are addressing water damage in the crawl and attic spaces, one of the first things we do is to shut off the electrical circuits. If the water instruction was as a result of fallen branches or trees on the roofs, we also go ahead and examine the entire roof construction. Since some attics may be hard to access due to limited space, we may perform minor demolitions and remove sheetrock if necessary. Sheetrock removal also makes it easy to dry the wet areas.

Most of our homes have wallpapers, HVAC, and cabinets that present challenges when drying your structure. When our SERVPRO technicians need to dry walls behind closets, we may drill holes into the walls so that air circulation can take place. Once they are dry, then we may cover or patch the holes.

Wallpapers also act as moisture barriers, and even if dehumidifiers are allowed to run, efficient moisture removal is not possible. That means we remove the vinyl wall coverings to enhance evaporation when drilling holes, removing the base molding, forcing air into the wall cavities is not an option, but before then, we communicate with the customer.

SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas is a trusted industry leader in storm, mold, fire, and water damage restoration. Call us at (214) 361-7887 at any time of the day and allow us to make it “Like it never even happened.”
