For Water Mitigation in Oak Ridge, Professional Help is Essential
Statistics indicate that about 40% of all homeowners in the U.S.A. have at some point experienced water damage, affecting houses ranging in age and value. Therefore, water mitigation is a vital process to be aware of. Its main aim is the prevention or reduction of water damage plus the rebuilding and restoration of the house following water damage.
SERVPRO has expertise in water mitigation. Our team includes well-trained technicians in handling water damage, enabling us to deliver high-quality water mitigation services in Oak Ridge. The process we abide by comprises several different activities.
The main concern is reducing property loss due to the damage, and water mitigation can be any action that deals with the damage. SERVPRO’s general steps involved in the water mitigation process include the following:
- Spotting the source of water.
- Extraction of standing water.
- Cleaning the affected property.
- Sanitization ensures the removal of any materials that have the possibility of being hazardous.
- Drying of the affected space to prevent mold growth and further structural damage.
- Repair of damages.
- Restoration of the property to its preloss condition.
To remove the water, SERVPRO has a variety of water restoration equipment. This extraction is usually followed by removing the water absorbed into different surfaces, at which point air movers and dehumidifiers are suitable. Air movers work by introducing evaporation at the surface level. They replace the saturated, cool boundary layer with drier, warmer air from dehumidifiers. We can also use different ventilation or drying systems to direct airflow into wall cavities.
Any water damage incident prevents the potential for the proliferation of microbes that can grow on many building materials. This is why SERVPRO ensures that all the surfaces that come into contact with the water are sanitized. We have biohazard cleaning specialists who carry this out on a professional level.
