Contact SERVPRO to Handle the Water Damage in Your Windermere Residence
Most homeowners in the Windermere, FL area are not ready for an emergency water service. The number one cause of interior damage to houses and buildings is a water break.
Having water pooling in your home after a pipe burst can be a traumatic experience. If it happens in the night, it can be particularly troublesome, and you might wonder whom to call. Thankfully, SERVPRO of West Orange offers professional water damage restoration services and is available on a 24-hour basis. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
What kind of damage can water cause?
A burst pipe can cause water damage in your Windermere home, affecting one or several rooms. Stagnant water can ruin wood flooring, carpeting, drywall, wood beams, insulation, and furnishings. It is not only the water that causes problems since moisture can lead to mold infestation. The longer standing water remains in a home, the harder it is to clean it up. That’s why we can arrive at your home quickly to assess the damage and start remediating the situation.
Why hire professionals to deal with a water intrusion problem?
You need to hire professionals because you do not want to risk doing the job incorrectly. If you perform water restoration poorly, your property could develop a severe damp problem a few months later. Water affects different materials in various ways. Brick and concrete are resistant to water damage while wood can resist short term wetting. However, timber decays if it stays wet for an extended period. Dense materials do not retain much water, but they dry slowly, whereas porous materials absorb much water, but dry quickly.
What does SERVPRO do to restore a water-damaged house?
Our expert technicians begin the restoration process by removing standing water. Water removal helps prevent further damage. Our team has suitable equipment for removing water from different kinds of floors. For instance, for glue-down carpeting, we can use a carpet wand to extract the water. This equipment is ideal for removing water initially and for removing residual water on the surface of carpeting after we have used a stationary tool. We can then clean and dry the carpet and eliminate any debris that could be present. We also have drying tools that can eliminate moisture from walls, flooring, and the framing of your home.
Do not let a water intrusion incident ruin your home severely. Call SERVPRO of West Orange at (407) 352-1569 for quick restoration that can make the damage seem, “Like it never even happened.”
