SERVPRO Takes Various Steps during Water Damage Repair in Orlando Properties to Guarantee Faster Delivery of Satisfactory Results

In the aftermath of a water loss incident, you might be torn between doing a thorough restoration and getting a faster outcome. In many cases, faster results could mean overlooking some issues, while thoroughness can extend the process beyond the standard timelines. SERVPRO professionals combine their extensive training and experience handling similar tasks to help Orlando homeowners get the desired outcomes.

What aspects of water damage repair in Orlando properties lead to delays?
    •    Identifying the full extent of damages
    •    Drying wet materials
    •    Cleaning soiled areas

After water leaks into your Orlando house, the moisture migrates to various sections, causing hidden and observable damages. Some of the hidden damages might include deterioration of:
    •    Insulation
    •    Subfloor materials such as OSB
    •    Materials affected by mold

Identifying hidden damages can take time because of the need to remove overlying materials to reach the damaged areas. Our SERVPRO technicians expedite the process by using specialized equipment to reveal the affected areas. For instance, a thermal camera helps reveal pockets of wetness in hidden areas revealing where technicians should demolish rather than opening up all areas.

Are there repair processes that help save time without diminishing effectiveness?
Repairing water damage often involves countering the effects moisture has on various materials. For instance, wooden frames or floorboards tend to swell when saturated with water. Drying them reverses the situation. Instead of applying regular drying procedures such as ventilating the wet area, our SERVPRO technicians opt for advanced alternatives such as setting up drying chambers. The chamber is created by overlaying a plastic sheet over the wet materials then circulating dry air in the enclosure. Other advanced processes can also help repair other issues such as staining, deep soiling, and even help remove mold residues.
