Advanced equipment like this LGR dehumidifier and specific methods like porting moisture to the exterior via rigged ducts, saves Orlando homes

Techniques for water damage mitigation and restoration throughout Orlando

Water damage is the most common call-outs for our professionals, so it is a situation that our team must stay prepared to face. We have a fast mitigative response with advanced tools ready 24/7.

Software to Focus the Restoration Process

When water cleanup in Orlando homes begins, our SERVPRO professionals initially rely on the information acquired with a thorough inspection and damage assessment. We input this data into our proprietary software SERVPRO DryBook to set a baseline for drying and cleaning production moving forward. This software also helps track the inventory of contents in the house and their condition throughout the restoration process.

Effective Extraction Tools

Before much of the focus can shift to trapped water in wall and floor assemblies, our professionals must remove the visible water from the surface of materials in the affected areas. Extraction plays a large role in the restoration process, and the choice of a water removal tool depends on the severity and placement of the water.

Tracking Moisture Movement

Not surprisingly, water can move quickly through porous building materials. Moisture can work beneath the surface with materials like wood flooring and cause irreversible warping and distortion of the planks. Using thermal imagery and other moisture detection tools, we can track where advanced drying equipment should be placed to help.

Thorough Drying Options for Homes

While much of the tools used to regulate moisture and water damage in a property have not changed in recent years, we are guided by many devices and instruments that help designate the best placement of drying machines and the frequencies of these units throughout the structure to maximize evaporation production. Some of the drying tools we use include:

  • Centrifugal Air Movers
  • Axial Air Movers
  • Low-Grain Refrigerant Dehumidifiers
  • Positive/Negative Pressure Systems

Cleaning up after water damage in area homes and businesses can be challenging. We have experienced professionals trained to provide rapid and thorough restoration solutions beginning as soon as we arrive. Give our SERVPRO of South Orange County a call today to help at (407) 226-2621.
