When Storms Bring Water Inside Your Tallahassee Home
Reliable Water Removal in a Tallahassee Rental Home
While May in Alabama only averages a few inches of rain compared to the summer, a lot can happen during those springtime showers. When a tree limb falls on your roof and causes a ceiling leak that affects your hardwood floor, for example, you may suddenly have much more to worry about that just patching up your roofing. Rainwater can invite in a myriad of structural maladies on top of the risk of mold. Worse still, water in your hardwood can affect your subflooring and damage both layers of the floor in your home.
If roof damage after a storm requires water removal in your Tallassee residence, the technicians at SERVPRO are ready to assist you. We are Faster To Any Size Disaster so your home can be restored to its pre-damage condition in as little as 24 hours thanks to our emergency response team.
After extracting any free water with portable, extractors or a wet/dry vacuum and moving and cleaning any furniture or other items affected by water, we can get to work on your waterlogged ceiling. Small vent holes can be drilled to both remove water and allow for better ventilation. Air movers and low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers are used in tandem to pull up moisture and replace it with warm, dry air to safely remove storm water from porous surfaces such as wood, and drywall.
Hardwood flooring is salvageable with the help of a large sheet of 6-millimeter plastic or polyethylene and specialized drying equipment. This sheeting creates a separate space for moisture pulled up by air movers and dehumidifiers for more effective water extraction. A well-isolated chamber that traps moisture for removal is also vital for preserving the plywood subflooring under your hardwood.
SERVPRO of Prattville is ready to mitigate disasters that occur in your home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Give us a call today at (334) 358-1186 to leave your home clean and free of moisture once more.
