Professional Restoration of Water Damage in Miami Helps Save Important Fixtures

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

The warm Miami weather might not be associated with water damage, 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 house like countertops, cabinets, and drawers, 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 door casing is vital to effectively reach all the waterlogged areas. Although specialized tools like a water extraction wand can help suck water from hidden locations, 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 considerable 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, removing any affected insulation and drying the wall's wooden components. The SERVPRO technicians we send save you from all the hassles involved and ensure unnecessary damage does 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 plumbing leaks. 

When we remove the fixtures, it is easier to place air movers and dehumidifiers in different sections of the house for faster drying. By doing this, our SERVPRO technicians help protect the home from further damage by reducing microbial growth and chances of 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 (305) 269-8900, we respond fast and use the correct techniques that safeguard the fixtures in your home. "Like it never even happened."
