Get Fast Water Extraction for Your Orlando Home

Florida residents may know always to be prepared for flooding from storm systems and hurricanes. Still, small faucet leaks and damaged pipes can pose significant risks to your home, no matter how prepared you may be. Even a small pipe leak can introduce dozens of gallons of water into your home every day. If left unchecked, this can create conditions where mold and other microbes can thrive and compromise your structure.

If you need a professional team that can offer you rapid water extraction in Orlando, SERVPRO is a phone call away from coming to your home within hours. Technicians can get to work removing moisture from surfaces as well as from structural materials in your home. Advanced technologies, such as infrared cameras and thermohygrometers, can be used to ensure that your home gets the care it needs in tandem with EPA-registered disinfectants.

Indications of Water Damage Behind Walls

There are several signs to look for that can indicate a pipe leak behind a wall. If you suspect that you may have water damage behind a structure in your home, keep an eye out for these signs:

  • A distinctly wet, musty odor
  • Visible mold growth or discernible odors on walls and baseboards
  • Visible staining on walls and ceilings that is often brown
  • Bubbling or peeling paint and wallpaper 
  • Walls, floors, and ceilings can warp, buckle, and eventually give way under pressure

How SERVPRO Can Restore Your Home

When you call your local SERVPRO team, they can take great care to restore your items after water damage takes place. Portable extraction wands can be used to get into structures and remove water after baseboards have been moved. Holes may be drilled into sagging ceilings to allow for easier removal of moisture and facilitate drying. 

If you have hardwood floors in your home, boards can be removed and replaced after cleaning for small leaks. In more saturated areas, large mats can be placed over floors to contain moisture and make it easier to extract moisture. Floors can then be dried with carefully-placed centrifugal air movers and low-grain refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers. This local team also has a mold remediation license (#MRSR868) to take care of mold growth after water damage has affected your home. 

SERVPRO of West Orange can ensure that your residence looks, "Like it never even happened." When disaster strikes in your home, call (407) 352-1569, and you can have a team at your residence within hours.
