Minimize Secondary Damage

12/22/2023 (Permalink)

A flood or burst pipe can cause major water damage inside your business. Excessive water exposure can be problematic because moisture is a key ingredient for black mold growth. To help prevent secondary damage and the need for mold remediation services, the professional restoration crew you hire must perform a thorough cleanup. 

Removing Saturated Materials:

SERVPRO professionals should promptly remove all wet items from the water-damaged area.  It is important to discard saturated building materials such as drywall, carpet, and insulation.  Replacing these materials helps to eliminate potential undetected moisture zones behind walls and under flooring where mold can grow.

Drying the Affected Space:

High humidity and condensation can also result in black mold growth. To help prevent this, it’s important to maintain adequate air circulation during the cleanup process.  SERVPRO professionals can utilize fans and dehumidifiers to help remove excessive moisture. They can also employ moisture meters to verify the site is dry before installing new insulation, drywall and carpet.

SERVPRO specializes in fire, water, storm, and mold cleanup and restoration.  Our crews are highly trained in property damage cleanup and restoration.
