Quick Water Removal Can Reduce Damages

SERVPRO of Toledo West prides itself on being “faster to any size disaster.” When a pipe bursts, a tub overflows, or a drain backs up, your home needs to have excess water removed as quickly as possible.

When handling water disasters, the first step upon our arrival is to pump out any water that is visible. This helps us gain a better visual to more easily assess the extent of the damage.

Larger amounts of porous materials require a more aggressive drying method in order to avoid mold growth. Our years of experience will benefit homeowners suffering from any kind of water damage.

Water removal begins the process, then we move toward removing the moisture that has evaporated into the air. This moisture can travel into any part of the home, and can cause problems down the line if not detected and removed. Dehumidifiers, heaters, air movers, and even open windows work best when used together. Moisture meters provide us with a beginning reading to compare to later readings throughout your home, showing progress of the drying process.

During drying, other problems can arise, such as unusual odors. Water can disturb and release odors particles from materials in your home. We can rectify this problem with odor control methods. Over-stretched carpets can also occur, which we also fix.

We take great care to ensure that any type of flooring is dry in flooding situations. This prevents warping of wooden floors and sub-flooring.

In situations that have left your home partially submerged, call us. We are available 24/7/365 to handle your water damage needs.
