Why Seek Professional Assistance For Water Cleanup In Miami

A water loss incident may not seem complicated to address. Whether a faulty plumbing line or a weather event such as driving rain releases the water, you may think that all you have to do is scoop it out and air the property to restore normal conditions. However, in practice, you realize it takes more to deal with the damage. Involving a professional Miami restoration company to help with cleanup has many benefits.

Whether the case involves clean or gray water, it ends up soiling the property. Soiling can happen as the water dissolved dyes in fabrics or leads to chipping of paint from surfaces. The water can also spread debris such as dust and even household wastes. Cleaning the soils left over after the incident is, therefore, a necessary part of the water cleanup process in Miami. Our SERVPRO technicians use professional cleaning agents and EPA-registered disinfectants to ensure we clean your property to a sanitary level.

The main problem after a water loss is the standing water so extraction and drying all moisture traces is crucial. Such extraction should happen promptly because letting the water sit for more than twenty-four hours can lead to severe problems such as mold development. Drying the area too fast can also have its challenges because it can cause wood and similar materials to crack. Our SERVPRO technicians set a drying goal for balanced drying. We use moisture meters to determine the level of wetness in materials allowing us to determine the number of air movers and dehumidifiers to use. We also determine the best positioning of such equipment when setting the goal.

Bad odors can develop quickly after water loss incidents. Under humid conditions, smells are more prevalent because the moisture dissolves and carries the odor vapors to the nose. Removing such odors helps restore the property to its preloss state. Our SERVPRO technicians take specific steps to deodorize the property dealing with the damage “Like it never even happened.” We air scrubbers to remove airborne particles and hydroxyl generators to neutralize odor particles.
