Kitchen Water Damage Restoration in Miami by SERVPRO Is the Right Choice

The warm Miami weather might not be associated with water loss but it can occur due to broken plumbing or even leakages in the air conditioning system among other things. You might only think of mitigation in terms of extracting the water and drying the affected areas of your Miami home. However, mitigation also involves saving various installations in the home like countertops, cabinets, and drawers among others, which would cost the insurer or the homeowner a lot if mishandled.

In many cases of water damage in Miami, removal of the cabinets, countertops, door trims and the door casing is vital in order to reach all the waterlogged areas effectively. Although specialized tools like a water extraction wand can help suck water from hidden areas, removing the installations can guarantee that all affected areas are appropriately addressed. The team we send from SERVPRO has the necessary skills to ensure the installations come out whole. For example, we support the granite on countertops with two-by-four planks to ensure there is no damage during disassembly.
 
If a huge percentage of the house is flooded, it might be necessary to remove around one foot of the bottom part of the drywall. This allows access to the outer wall, removal of any affected insulation and drying of the wooden parts of the wall. The SERVPRO technicians we send save you from all the hassles involved and ensure unnecessary damage do not occur during the removal. This is known as a flood cut and minimizes demolition, inconveniences, and expenses. Fortunately, most water damaging events are from localized plumbling leaks.

When we remove the fixtures, it is easier to place air movers and dehumidifiers in different parts of the house for faster drying. By doing this, our SERVPRO technicians help protect the house from further damage by reducing microbial growth and chances of the wood rotting. Once we certify that we have dried the area to preloss levels, contractors can move in and replace the removed fixtures if these services are required.
 
Water restoration technicians do more than just drying areas damaged by water. When you call SERVPRO of South Miami at (786) 838-4620, we respond fast and use the correct techniques that safeguard the fixtures in your home. "Like it never even happened."
