Steps to fixing water damage

Homeowners might believe they have a basic understanding of how a water loss can harm their Miami residence. When a water emergency occurs, whether from leaky plumbing, appliance malfunctions, weather-related events, or another issue, you need fast, professional assistance. Our well-equipped and certified crews possess both the theory of and experience in water removal and applied structural and contents drying.

Safety Hazard and Damage Assessment

Fast response to water damage in Miami must include a safety evaluation before crews commence removal activities. Our seasoned project managers look for utility hazards like electric shock risks or gas or oil leaks. Submerged debris can expose occupants and our crews to tripping, slipping, and injury from glass or other sharp objects. Weakened waterlogged building materials, including walls, floors, and ceilings, can destroy the integrity of the structure. Gallons of water can break suddenly through a ceiling, walls can crumble, and floors fail. Securing the premises for mitigation and remediation work is an essential first phase.

Efficiency in All Project Phases Is Vital

Both the structure and the contents of your home can suffer from water damage. As the overall plan for water damage restoration takes shape, SERVPRO employees often recommend a full or partial pack-out of contents, supported by our Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS). Pack-outs increase the efficiency of structural water removal and drying. Removed items do not need constant repositioning, and the water load they hold does not increase the relative humidity inside the structure. You also have the opportunity to have water-saturated furnishings, household goods, and personal possessions evaluated, cleaned, dried, disinfected, and restored by specially trained technicians at our production facility.

Aggressive Extraction Improves Drying Results

When more than two inches of water is measurable, we start with submersible pumps. SERVPRO’s truck-mounted and portable extractors then take over, pulling as much liquid from structures and fixtures as possible. Extraction proves 1200 times more effective than drying alone, so we take advantage of this fact to set the stage for streamlined drying. Our technicians record and monitor moisture level data in both affected and unaffected spaces in your home when setting and achieving drying goals. We carefully position air movers to speed evaporation of moisture from structures. A scientifically based balance of air movement, temperature, and dehumidification is crucial to dry out spaces. Our crews are experts in psychrometry, the science of drying and use knowledge and experience to return moisture levels to normal readings.

SERVPRO of South Miami investigates thoroughly and uses restoration industry best practices to resolve your water loss. Call us at (305) 269-8900 confident that we have the know-how and equipment necessary to return your home to preloss condition.
