SERVPRO Responds Quickly To Water Damage To Avoid Further Loss Of Property In Your Cape Coral Home 

It does not take a natural disaster to cause water damage in a home. Burst water heaters, broken pipes, or just forgetting to turn off a faucet can cause some disastrous results. After noticing the water intrusion incident, one of the first things you should do is to remove the most valuable possessions like jewelry and heirlooms from the flooded area.

It is also essential to remove the water quickly because the longer the water sits in a building, the more damage it causes. Contacting a trusted water restoration company like SERVPRO is the ideal way to perform water removal in your Cape Coral home. Our water damage restoration technicians can inspect the affected areas and choose the most suitable water extraction equipment to use. We consider a few factors in determining which extraction equipment can provide sufficient water removal. They include:

Depth of water that needs to be extracted

The distance within the house

Availability of power

Some extraction tools we can use to remove the water include submersible pumps, deep extraction tools, and light wands. Water can also penetrate structural cavities and create trapped pockets of saturation. Our team can use moisture detection tools like infrared cameras and moisture meters to determine which materials are affected. Undetected moisture can cause further water damage, which can lead to mold growth, unpleasant smells, and the deterioration of porous building materials.

If moisture seeps beneath your hardwood flooring, the boards may warp or buckle. Buckling and warping can become permanent once the wood dries. You may have to replace the flooring if refinishing cannot remove the damage. Our technicians usually identify the installation method and type of wood floor that is affected before drying it. Using subsurface or surface drying techniques and proper dehumidification, we can force airflow beneath the surface of the flooring negatively or positively to remove the moisture.

To restore your home entirely after water damage, you may need reconstruction services. Our SERVPRO team offers a wide range of services relating to restoration and rebuilding. Therefore, you need not call several contractors to get the solutions you need. Entrusting the entire water restoration project to one company can help you save money and time.

If a water loss incident has happened in your Pine Island, North Fort Myers, or Bokeelia home, do not panic. Contact SERVPRO of Cape Coral through our emergency helpline – (239) 573-5911 for prompt restoration. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
