Drying Out Your Home Quickly is Crucial to Minimizing Damage After a Storm

7/14/2021 (Permalink)

Monsoons can drop a significant amount of water during a short period of time, which cause flooding in your home. Whenever a flood occurs, no matter how minor it may seem, it’s important to dry any property that sustains water damage as quickly and efficiently as possible. Drying out your home quickly is crucial to minimizing damage after a flood.

Excessive water promotes mold growth

Even if a small amount of water enters your home after a flood, simply grabbing a mop and some paper towels may not be your best option for several reasons. First, while you may get up the excessive water, you’ll be unable to thoroughly dry out materials like carpeting and drywall. Furthermore, there may be water you don’t see behind walls or on windowsills. It’s important to get everything dried thoroughly and quickly. SERVPRO professionals can assist with faster drying.

Why time matters when water is present

Faster drying means less time for existing mold spores to cause mold growth, which may weaken structural materials like wood framing and drywall to the extent that they have to be replaced. SERVPRO water remediation specialists are aware of this and are trained to address the situation. Using advanced dehumidification systems, SERVPRO can reverse any flood damage on your Phoenix property and thereby prevent mold growth. We have access to powerful water extraction equipment that is far more efficient at reversing flood damage than traditional vacuum units. These tools allow us to extract moisture from floors, pads, and carpets effectively, leaving the underlying surface as dry as before. SERVPRO’s water damage restoration experts use special procedures to help minimize the repair costs while accelerating the drying process. Rapid water removal after flood damage also helps prevent irreversible swelling in porous materials like wood and paper, rusting on metals, shrinkage in drapes and upholstery, and moisture damage to electronic equipment.
