You want a team of experienced professionals working on your home's mitigation needs. Give us a call today for assistance.

Orlando Residents Looking To Save Time and Money On Water Damage Mitigation.

Savvy people living in Orlando are always looking for ways to save money. After all, it seems like the cost of living keeps growing, and it is essential to save dollars when you can.

DIY is a popular way to save some money. There are multiple blogs and videos online teaching you to do everything from sewing to home repairs. It is tempting for homeowners to turn their hands to all sorts of projects in Orlando, even water damage mitigation.

Can I tackle minor water damage problems myself?

Of course, it's easy to see why you need a professional if your home is flooded. However, you might decide to tackle smaller water problems such as: 

  • A leaky appliance
  • A damp patch in the corner of the basement
  • Wet cushions or upholstery due to a nearby leak or spill
  • A water-damaged rug

However, SERVPRO recommends that you call the professional even for smaller jobs.

Why is it better to call the professionals?

Properly trained technicians can assess the situation and come up with the best solution. There are multiple reasons to call a trained team:

  • They might spot things you missed, such as hidden water sources
  • They know what to save and what to toss away
  • They come with professional equipment and cleaning solutions that are more effective than home remedies

Why is professional equipment necessary?

The right equipment does two things: Gets better results, and uncovers hidden issues.

If you have a water-damaged rug or an upholstered item, we can use dehumidifiers and air movers to dry it faster than you could dry it alone. We also have air scrubbers to deodorize afterward and get rid of damp smells. In the event of water stains on delicate material, we have spot cleaning solutions that are highly targeted but still gentle.

Our technicians have a range of moisture monitoring tools, such as moisture probes and thermal-hygrometers. These let us see under rugs and behind furniture for a fuller picture of the water damage. If we spot hidden sources of moisture, we can take action to prevent further problems.

If you have water damage, no matter how small, we are here to help – We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

For help with water damage, call SERVPRO of South Orange County at (407) 226-2621.
