How Do I Restore My Water Damaged Home in Miami To Pre-Damage Condition?
The Professional Water Damage Team from SERVPRO Can Help
It only takes one of the many storms passing over Miami to create problems with your home's roof. After repairs, most homeowners never have a problem again. Sometimes, though, minor gaps that went undetected before now suddenly seem to open up and let rain from even mild showers into the house. Any part of your roof can develop problems like this.
What are the first steps to restoring my Miami home after water damage?
- We can help determine where the leak is coming from so your roofing team can get the repairs made as quickly as possible
- Thermal imaging equipment that shows the presence of moisture in materials for tracking down both lost and invasive water
- SERVPRO can repair leaky pipes and slipped water lines.
After we locate the area where rain enters, we can tarp this to eliminate problems until after the completion of the roof's repairs. Now we can begin working on cleaning up the water that came through your ceiling and is threatening your home and your belongings. Preventing as much ruination and damage to your property as possible is our goal in mitigation and cleanup.
What happens to my belongings after a water loss?
Water that comes through your attic can carry debris with each drop and deposit these substances on your belongings. Attic spaces can also contain stored boxes of off-season items, and we can get these cleaned up for you, also. Disposing of things and repurchasing them often costs considerably more than the expense involved in cleaning and restoring those same items.
Furniture that sat under a leak can hold quite a bit of water in its upholstery. We use special vacuums that remove the water while protecting the fabric. Other items, such as solid wood furniture, can often come clean with only a thorough wipe-down to clean it sufficiently. We air dry these in a special chamber to speed drying up and then deodorize with either hydroxyl or ozone machines.
Carpeting in the area affected by an overhead leak often experiences water spread out several feet in each direction. We get carpets in such situations dry by floating them, which allows us to direct air both above and below them, rapidly drying them and the floor on which the carpet rests.
