Water Damage Restoration for North Dallas

1/5/2018 (Permalink)

If your home suffers a water damage, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Water damage restoration is one of the most rapidly growing and evolving industries in the country. What used to consist of a contractor setting up a few fans in a flooded house has now become a bonafide science, largely in part to the greater understanding we now have of the serious negative health repercussions that can be caused by mold, mildew, and bacteria growth, and the better technologies available to tackle a water restoration job.

Priority Number One—Dry the Place Out

Without question, the most important step a homeowner needs to take when faced with flood or other water damage is to waste no time in drying the area out. As has already been mentioned, the old standby of setting up all your house fans to dry out a flooded house or structure really isn’t very effective in the long run. It may do a satisfactory job on the surface, but deeper water damage to walls, wood, carpet and furniture, along with insufficient drying, can lead to more profound consequences such as mold and mildew growth, the flourishing of harmful bacteria, and in extreme conditions, actual damage to the structural integrity of the home itself.

To combat all these harmful possibilities, the best thing you can do is to call in a licensed water damage restoration specialist like SERVPRO of Metrocrest to tackle the job. We are well-schooled in all the latest methods of water damage restoration, and we have access to the most cutting-edge technology available to dry out your home and prevent harmful fungi and bacteria from getting a foothold.

 What to Expect

With any restoration project, expect a full-on assessment of your affected area from the get-go. SERVPRO of Metrocrest will set up dehumidifiers, air purifiers, blowers, fans, and special floor driers and cleaners to quickly and efficiently dry out your water damaged home. Besides these standard steps, and depending on the extent of the damage, your technician might also employ the use of wall driers, sanitizers, and mold and mildew remediation techniques and equipment to ensure that what is already a tough situation doesn’t get worse over time. The water damage restoration cost is far less than what permanent damage results in.

 In the Long Run

The full extent of the steps that need to be taken could be much greater, however. Depending on the amount of water that caused the damage and the duration of time that passed before a restoration crew was called in, you may be looking at a much larger project. Crawl spaces, ductwork, ceilings and insulation may also need to be attended to, and if there is severe damage to drywall, carpet, or structural aspects of your home, you may be looking at a larger home renovation project altogether. If this is the case, contact a general contractor after your restoration work is done in order to get your house back in working order as quickly as possible.
