Professionals Talk About Flood Damage Restoration in Orlando
Preventing Flood Damage in an Orlando Home
Florida is no stranger to structural damage from heavy rain. It can be quite the hassle, however, to come home from work and find that rain accumulation on the low spots of your roof caused an unsightly ceiling and wall leak in your bedroom. Not only is it almost impossible to mitigate damage on your own, but it takes a team of professionals to ensure the structural components of your home are thoroughly cleaned and dried to prevent mold, cupping, warping, and other issues that can lead to long-term problems.
If you find weather-related flood damage in your Orlando residence, SERVPRO technicians are ready to come to you and restore your home to its pre-existing condition 24/7. Our certified, professionals have the tools and methods to clean, dry, and deodorize your residence after it has been affected by roof flooding.
Our team can use a wide variety of water detection equipment to evaluate moisture levels both in the air and on surfaces and mitigate damage to structures as a result. SERVPRO utilizes moisture sensors to get a preliminary read on porous surfaces such as carpet. Infrared imaging and moisture meters are also used to get a read of moisture levels behind walls and on surfaces.
After moving and preserving furniture and fixtures in your home, our team can get to work placing air movers and dehumidifiers in strategic locations to pull absorbed moisture out of surfaces and into the air, where they can be sucked up by a low grain refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifier. This machine works by passing moist air over refrigerated coils, and in the process collects and drains water, and expels dry air. This process can be aided by the setup of polyethylene partitions, which can accelerate drying.
