Professional Water Damage Restoration Involves Removing Water From, Drying, Disinfecting, and Deodorizing Your Montrose Area Home

Whenever your home is impacted by a water leak of any size, the primary objectives are to stop the leak, remove any standing water it has produced, dry structural elements and contents, eliminate microbial threats, and do away with any unpleasant smells associated with the issue. Montrose area companies like SERVPRO are well-equipped and skilled at accomplishing these important tasks. This is why professional assistance is necessary when dealing with the effects of water-related problems.

How Can SERVPRO Remove Water from and Dry My Residence?

Once on-site, our Montrose water damage restoration experts evaluate your home. After making their determinations, they utilize their extensive training in water damage remediation to return your residence to its pre-damaged condition. Some of their extensive Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training and certifications include:

  • Applied structural drying
  • Carpet and upholstery cleaning
  • Odor control
  • Water damage restoration

All this training makes our technicians highly effective in quickly locating issues, mitigating problems, and restoring water-damaged structures and contents.

When performing their water removal and drying tasks in Montrose, SERVPRO technicians are greatly aided in their efforts by a wide range of state-of-the-art remediation equipment. These industrial-grade tools speed up their work and make it more effective. Some of the high-tech gear our workers use is:

  • Truck-mounted and portable water extractors that remove inches-to-feet of standing water
  • Submersible pumps that draw out large amounts of water from inundated structures
  • Wet vacs to clean up various-sized puddles of liquid
  • Desiccant and refrigerant dehumidifiers to dry out interior air, structural elements, and furnishings
  • High-velocity box fans and air movers that circulate and change out moist interior air for drier exterior air
  • Injectidry systems to dry hard-to-reach areas behind walls, in ceilings, and under floors

What Process Does SERVPRO Follow to Remove Water and Dry My Home?

We follow a well-developed plan of action to restore your home to its original condition. First, using water extractors, technicians remove any deep standing water from your residence. They continue by vacuuming up any remaining puddles with wet vacs. The following steps of the process involve expertly drying your interiors to prevent microbial growth and future structural and personal property damage. Using high-velocity box fans, air movers, and dehumidifiers, our experienced workers draw excess moisture out of your interiors and furnishings. They use injectidry systems in combination with air mover-dehumidifier networks to dry out places in ceilings, subflooring, and behind walls.

How Does SERVPRO Disinfect and Deodorize My House?

Properly restoring a water-damaged home involves more than simply removing standing water and related moisture. It requires effective mitigation or elimination of microbial threats, as well as the unpleasant odors associated with harmful microorganisms.

The tools SERVPRO technicians use to complete this crucial work are:          

  • High-tech ultra-low volume (ULV) and thermal foggers that enable workers to neutralize harmful microbes and odorous airborne/material-embedded particles
  • EPA-approved antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal agents
  • Humidity-decreasing chemicals that hinder microbial growth
  • Agents that pair with harmful particles, removing them from the air and making them easier to clean up off of surfaces

Our Montrose area experts, utilizing these advanced water damage mitigation and remediation tools, are often able to prevent the proliferation of harmful bacteria, the development of mold, and large mildew growths. Moreover, they usually can save your home from the potentially detrimental health effects, structure-destroying dry rot, and sickening smells associated with these troublesome microorganisms.

With all that said, no one ever wants to think about having to deal with water damage. This, however, is a serious mistake because ignoring such problems could result in extensive structural damage to your residence that requires expensive, time-consuming future repairs. Therefore, remain vigilant, keep up with your property’s maintenance needs, always monitor your home for any signs of water leaks, and have your home periodically inspected for water damage. Some potential threats to look out for are roof and gutter-related leaks, ruptured or dripping pipes, malfunctioning appliances, and compromised or damaged containers. If and when problems are discovered, have them fixed immediately to avoid more extensive and expensive future issues.

Whenever leaks impact your property, remember that help is available nearby. SERVPRO can professionally inspect your residence, locate sources of excess moisture and fix them, remove any amount of standing water, effectively dry all parts of your home and its contents, and thoroughly disinfect and deodorize your living space. So, if your home is ever damaged by water, stay on top of the matter and have the issue resolved as soon as possible.
