SERVPRO Explains the Importance of Removing Standing Water Immediately
Moisture and standing water are substantial threats for Bloomingdale homes after water damages
Burst pipes or invading water from roof leaks and damaged fixtures can leave inaccessible areas of the house struggling with water damage. With porous materials like drywall and carpeting quickly absorbing standing and migrating water, costly damage to these structural and cosmetic elements can result.
The Advantages of Controlled Demolition
Trapped water damage in Bloomingdale homes must get removed with careful strategies. Several unique approaches exist depending on the impacted material, ranging from weighted extractors for carpeted floors to more complex drying mats and injecti-dry and tenting systems. Pulling caught moisture from porous materials prevents this flooring or construction material from becoming disfigured or unusable.
How Does Moisture Spread Through Area Homes?
Much of the movement of moisture and water damage in homes after ceiling leaks or flooding can be attributed to natural processes where properties seek to find a balance, wet goes to dry. Reaching an equilibrium of temperature and moisture causes the migration of water through porous materials and open areas of the residence. High porosity materials are conduits to impact multiple spaces in the house simultaneously before thorough drying can resolve the situation. Some of these affected materials include:
- Wood framing
- Ceiling systems
- Structural openings
Because of how quickly water damages can get out of control in area homes, fast action is preferable when drying and restoration are possible.
