SERVPRO Says Inspect Appliance Hoses to Save Water and Money

Call SERVPRO for Water Damage Restoration in Pensacola

Pensacola water damage is a serious issue that can adversely impact your residential property. Unfortunately, many homeowners do not have the basic knowledge necessary to grapple effectively with a water damage problem if it surfaces. However, having information about the causes and effects of water damage and how to eliminate it can empower you to keep your property in good condition. SERVPRO offers the following short outline for your review.

Many varying factors can contribute to a water damaging event. Natural disasters like floods, fires, hurricanes and tornadoes (becoming more common in our area) can produce rapid water damage. Additionally, water damage can surface on your property because of the following factors:
• Leaking pipes, ruptured appliance hoses
• Roof leakages, improper flashing or shingles
• Poor ventilation
• Damp basements misdirected ground drainage or lack of vapor barriers and exterior coatings
• Excessive condensation, inadequate insulation
• Wet carpets or wood flooring
• Flooding, sewer or septic tank backup

Slow drips or condensation can lead to an accumulation of moisture which is a conducive condition for mold growth. Health effects can be the outcome of mold proliferation within your walls, carpets or HVAC system. These fungi can also damage porous materials like drywall and ceiling tiles requiring replacement. Rapid water intrusion from a burst pipe, flood, or aftermath of fire extinguishing efforts deposit standing water that must be removed quickly to mitigate damage to structural materials and personal possessions.

Hire Professional Help
When water damage strikes your property, considering professional assistance is important. In some cases, property owners seek to complete the restoration work on their own. However, DIY projects should be avoided if more than a puddle of water, using a mop and bucket, will remove the problem. SERVPRO has water pumps, wet vacs, sump pumps, air movers, dehumidifiers, foggers, and industry grade cleaning and sanitizing products for the services required. Cleaning, repairing and restoring building materials, furnishings, flooring, etc. is our formula, before replacing, to decrease interruptions, stress, and expenses.

To ensure that you select the right water damage restoration company, ascertain that the firm offers the following:
-24/7 emergency response
-Excellent customer service, from assessment to job completion
-Stellar online reviews
-Fair prices, we even help with the claims process and paperwork
