When You Have Water Damage in Your Everett home, SERVPRO Can Help 

Your home can sustain severe damages after a water intrusion incident. Water travels fast and can seep into confined areas. Therefore, it is imperative to call a team of certified restoration professionals like SERVPRO to help minimize the damage and bring back your property to its pre-water damage condition as fast as possible.

In a short amount of time, water can cause significant damage to surfaces made of porous materials such as drywall and ceilings. To perform water damage mitigation in your Everett home, SERVPRO can use innovative technology and specialist skills. If you do not restore your property after water seeps into different surfaces, multiple problems may occur. Water-related damage might start appearing several weeks after restoring your property if the restoration process was poor. Some of the issues you might see include: 

  • Corrosion of metallic surfaces
  • Swelling and warping of wood
  • Fabric stains from water
  • Microbial growth on porous surfaces like gypsum board, carpet, textiles, and fiber-fill insulation.

Essentially, water damage mitigation involves preventing further destruction from taking place. It consists of preserving a property’s structural integrity, removing salvageable contents from a property, containing other areas where water might spread, and removing water from the property. SERVPRO uses state-of-the-art equipment such as electrical submersible pumps to remove moisture and low grain refrigerants to dry affected structures and contents. Low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers can dry the affected surfaces to lower humidity ratios. They ensure that evaporation occurs even in tight spaces, resulting in faster drying.

Our SERVPRO team can inspect the property with penetrating moisture meters to ensure it is dry and ready for occupancy. Penetrating moisture meters enable restorers to test for moisture in walls and beneath wood floors.

When water damage occurs on your property, do not panic. Contact SERVPRO of South Everett for fast restoration. Talk to us today at (425) 367-4484. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
