Few Properties have Barriers Keeping Moisture in One Place in South Miami 

To remove water and restore average humidity from a residence after an accident, we use high-tech machines that locate, collect, and eliminate moisture. We never need to rely solely on visual evidence on your floors, walls, or ceilings. Many times, water accumulates on the inside of these structures in South Miami, even though the exterior surface stays dry. 

When a customer calls SERVPRO about leaky pipes that spilled water into their South Miami home, we assure them that we can handle the situation. Our training and equipment allow us to restore a healthy interior environment to their property using different water removal techniques. Achieving this is crucial when we want to prevent a house and its occupants from experiencing unnecessary ill effects. First, we must determine where your home has damp conditions. 

What kind of equipment helps locate the wet areas of a property?

When you have SERVPRO remove the water and dry out your home's structure after a broken pipe happens, our water removal technicians take images of seemingly dry structural surfaces. We do this with infrared cameras. 

How does SERVPRO get a damp house dry again?

Our Team knows how to scale everything down to perfectly suit any size house's needs. We address the two states of water: 

  • Liquid, as either standing water on horizontal surfaces or absorbed into permeable materials
  • Vapor 

With liquid water, we use pumps on our truck or handheld extractors to remove small quantities. This essential stage happens rather quickly. Water vapor can spread through your vents, hallways, and make its way throughout a home, including into enclosed cavities. Our desiccant and LGR dehumidifiers get rid of water vapor. 

We monitor the situation during the project by taking readings and comparing these to the initial ones we obtained before we began working. Once finished, we take a final set of numbers and images to show that the interior is once again at normal moisture levels. 

Many property owners know they can rely on SERVPRO of South Miami to remove water after leaks and spills. Call (305) 269-8900. We can make everything, "Like it never even happened."
