Why You Want SERVPRO For Water Damage Mitigation When You Get A Leak In Your Dallas Home

There are many different reasons for water damage in Dallas homes. The most common culprits are broken appliances, busted hoses, leaky pipes, and forgetfulness that leads to sinks and bathtubs overflowing. Regardless of the cause, major flooding in your home is a serious problem that requires professional assistance to properly mitigate damage caused by spillage.

Our water damage restoration technicians (WRT) are experienced in water damage mitigation in Dallas homes and have the tools and skills to help make you feel “Like it never even happened.” Successful remediation of water damage often depends on the ability of our techs to quickly remove spillage from your home. SERVPRO professionals can use industrial grade wet vacs and pumps for a rapid and timely removal of water. Oftentimes hardwood floors can be damaged after coming into contact with water for an extended period of time. After exposure to spillage, wood can cup and warp, potentially leading to your floor buckling when you step on a damaged area.

To prevent such safety hazards, SERVPRO professionals can identify the damaged areas of your floor with moisture detectors and can deploy air movers to pull excess moisture from the wood. Dehumidifiers can be used to extract moisture from the air inside your home, helping prevent mold growth. When the hardwood is dried, we can do our best to sand and refinish the wood to its pre-damaged state.

However, if you have a hardwood veneer on your floor instead of actual hardwood flooring, then we may have to instead strip and discard the veneer. This is due to the thin nature of veneers that make it difficult to restore them after they are exposed to water.

If your home is threatened by water damage after a bad leak, you should make sure to get professional help. SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County is available all day at (972) 227-0800, so call us as soon as you have a water damage emergency.
