SERVPRO provides advanced drying equipment and devices for water cleanup and drying in Lake Nona properties.

Water Cleanup Is a Product of Several Phases of Restoration in Lake Nona Properties

Cleaning up after water damages can require several steps and stages, beginning with our fast arrival for mitigation. Emergency services slow the progress of water damage and help prevent unnecessary harm to contents by allowing relocation and item-by-item cleanup and restoration. We are able to help 24/7 when disasters strike.

Surface Water Removal

Among the first steps of water cleanup for Lake Nona homes and businesses is eliminating surface water from the damaged areas. It is critical managing this pooling of water throughout the affected areas to reduce absorption and saturation into sensitive flooring materials like carpets, hardwood, and other similar materials used. We have multiple extractors to help in this effort, including vacuums and pumps.

Removing Moisture from Flooring Materials

It is important to identify water's impact on the flooring materials themselves. While we prioritize surface water removal, some penetration and absorption are likely. We must track the moisture migration in the house with sophisticated equipment to determine the ideal placement of our drying tools like mats and dehumidifiers. Some of the moisture tracking tools used include:

Was the Subflooring Damaged?

One of the questions SERVPRO must answer when managing water damage in a home or business is whether or not the subflooring was damaged during moisture migration. This subflooring often consists of an OSB board or plywood installation with joists, making it highly susceptible to water damage and deterioration. If water damage exists in these areas, we must act quickly to prevent tear-out and reconstruction when possible.

Because water damage can spread quickly in homes and businesses, SERVPRO of South Orange County works quickly to mitigate loss and protect what matters most to our customers. We are ready 24/7 to help when you call (407) 226-2621.
