Preventing Appliance Leaks Limits the Causes of Water Damage in West Pensacola

Damage from Water Is Mitigated with Rapid Extraction by SERVPRO

An unruly dishwasher, an overloaded washing machine, or a forgotten tub can all pose minor flooding emergencies in your home. These events cannot remain small ones if they are not addressed quickly and correctly. When overflows such as these are left to dry out on their own, mold, and other types of secondary water damage can be created.
Florida has its fair share of weather events, but indoor disasters can happen, too, and many of these require water removal services in West Pensacola. Just as flooding, and other sources of water can damage your home, overflows from appliances can create the same kinds of situations. The water might start out cleaner than floodwater does, but the results can soon become nearly identical.
Water removal is only the beginning of the process of restoring a home after water has found its way into areas in which it should never be found. Pumping water out with a truck until a handheld and portable device can be used is only the beginning. Work cannot stop there when carpets and furniture are only damp. Giant fans (axial box fans) and smaller air movers are deployed. Any flooding can dramatically increase the humidity in the air, and this moisture needs to be expelled outdoors or captured by a dehumidifier. Florida is often warm enough that heaters do not need to be used. However, if the outdoor temperatures are much cooler, such as at night or in the winter, using heaters can significantly speed up the drying process. Opening as many windows as possible also increases the rate at which your home can become dry.
Even small spills should be addressed quickly. While the water from an overflowing tub might seem slight, water can quickly make its way under flooring, especially near the tub. This water also needs to be removed. Water that is left as it is and never removed can cause problems with disintegrating walls, warped wooden structures, rotting support beams, mold and bacterial growths, and staining of walls and ceilings, among other problems.
SERVPRO of West Pensacola has the professionals who know how to do the work correctly, from start to finish. We are always ready to take your call at (850) 469-1160.
