Should Homeowners in Cottage Grove Perform Needed Water Damage Mitigation on Their Own?

8/6/2021 (Permalink)

Regardless whether the intrusion came from above or below, water damage in your home must be dealt with quickly before deterioration occurs.

Progressive Deterioration and Secondary Damage are Too Serious to Risk -- Why SERVPRO Experts Must Evaluate Cottage Grove Water Damage Repair Needs

Inattentive moments can result in the need for Cottage Grove water damage mitigation. Sometimes a quick mop takes care of the situation. Other spills, overflows, and the “sudden” burst pipes of neglected plumbing create the possibility of significant harm to the contents and structures, often in areas hidden from view.

What Are Reasons Why SERVPRO Can Find and Halt Water Damage Fast and Effectively?

A Cottage Grove resident can only investigate visible water incursions, while SERVPRO technicians are trained and equipped to detect and measure moisture even covered by structures. We follow the restoration industry’s best practices protocols to stop the continued migration and remove liquid water. Examples include:

  • Clearing the affected space of wet contents
  • Wanding the edges of water exposure on carpeting
  • Removing standing water with pumps and extractors 

How Do Trained Technicians Determine Drying Goals?

Our drying team creates conditions that facilitate the evaporation of moisture trapped inside building materials using specialized equipment. Successful water damage mitigation and remediation rely upon drying wet structures to the baseline found in your Cottage Grove home, why SERVPRO records moisture levels of wet materials compared to measurements of similar dry materials elsewhere in your home. Armed with this data we achieve the drying goal by:

  • Positioning and repositioning commercial-grade air movers
  • Adding heaters because warm air absorbs moisture more efficiently
  • Deploying dehumidifiers to capture and then condense or absorb the water vapor for disposal 

Have confidence that reliance on SERVPRO of Woodbury, Cottage Grove for your water mitigation needs is never misplaced. Contact us at (651) 314-4631 for a review of your options.
