SERVPRO’s Steps to Restoring Your Water Damage

A water loss event creates stress for Everett residents, but when we recommend controlled demolition techniques to solve water removal and structural drying, you might feel things have gone too far. Trust us to suggest only proven, research-based measures, and to offer continuity of services so that any destruction of building materials to enable water mitigation and remediation is a temporary circumstance, why we offer reconstruction options.

Water Loss Brings Challenges

A significant complication in many water damage events in Everett is when water migrates away from the initial leak or breakdown. The fluid that drips from a cracked pipe or broken pump or hose in an appliance does not remain stagnant. It moves, typically seeking a downward angle, flowing into cracks, crevices, building cavities, and wicking up into porous materials like drywall and insulation. Merely pumping and using extractors cannot reach all spaces where water collects. 

Mapping the Migration

The need to trace water pathways is why SERVPRO technicians train in the use of moisture detection tools, using the sensitive instruments to define the perimeters of affected spaces and the moisture content of wet materials. Thermal imaging cameras use temperature variations, evaluated by certified employees, to locate places where caches of water pool.

Accessing the Moisture

Trapped moisture exposes your home to continuing deterioration from the corrosive action of water, why SERVPRO explores controlled demolition options to gain access for extraction and to improve drying efforts. Controlled demolition strategies include:

  • Punching weep holes in ceilings and “blistered” paint or wall coverings for water release. 
  • Removing sections of baseboards or paneling to permit the drilling of holes to release water and allow the application of negative pressure (suction) via hoses or other couplings for extraction. The holes also permit blowing in warm air to expedite drying.
  • Making flood cuts several inches above the water line in drywall releases water and opens building cavities to drying equipment.  

Repair and Rebuilding

Hiring one contractor licensed and certified to remove water, dry out structural components, and provide reconstruction streamlines restoration. Easing the stress of resolving all aspects of residential water damage is why SERVPRO offers wrap-around services, leveraging our construction division to rehabilitate necessary controlled demolition to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Customer satisfaction from project start to finish is why SERVPRO of South Everett chooses to provide comprehensive rebuilding services. Call us at (425) 367-4484 to explore how we can manage your water damage emergency.
