SERVPRO Water Damage

Water Damage and SERVPRO

Last year, there was over $50 million in damage from storms and flooding in Dallas alone. Even this late in the summer, thunderstorms still pop up out of seemingly nowhere and send people to high ground while watching their property disappear under water again.

SERVPRO understands that the longer a home is under water, the worse the water damage is to a Dallas home. The key to trying and reversing the damage is to get the water out as quickly as possible. We have some of the most experienced people in the restoration business to get it done and equip them with the best pumps, fans and more to ensure the job is done right.

Just because you can't see the water, doesn't mean you're in the clear; removing the standing water is only the beginning. One of the first things our SERVPRO experts do is determine if there is any wall damage. If there is, our technicians will place an air mover at the base of that wall to extract the water. An air mover is a very powerful, commercial-grade fan that forces the moisture across a wider area which allows it dry faster before permanent damage can occur.

A dehumidifier is placed in each room once the air movers have finished their work. These machines pull moisture out of the air itself and keep it from getting back into wallboard and sheetrock. They also help to remove moisture from wood floors and door trim.

The dehumidifiers also work with our specialized heaters to draw the water out of carpets and carpet padding. Getting this accomplished quickly can save hundreds of dollars in replacement carpeting and padding in just a single bedroom alone. Add in the living room and the number quickly goes into the thousands.
