Learn to Prevent and Mitigate Water Damage in Crested Butte
SERVPRO Technicians Use the Latest Water Detection Equipment for Water Damage Remediation in Your Home
There are several sources which can lead to water damage in your home or commercial property. They can be weather-related or when your plumbing or appliances are faulty. Despite the source of the moisture, one thing is clear - such an experience can disrupt your life and lead to loss of valuables. We are here to let you know the steps you should take to prevent and address such an in incident as a Crested Butte resident.
While our SERVPRO technicians can visually inspect your property for water damage in Crested Butte, sometimes we use thermal imaging cameras and acoustic leak detectors to make the inspection work more manageable. As a precaution measure, if you notice a significant increase in your water bill, there are chances that a leak exists, and working with an expert can help you eliminate such a cause.
Usually, pipes in basements, attics and any other exposed areas are insulated to prevent them from freezing. However, if it happens that there is a leak, and the insulation is wet, it is time to detach the padding and extract the water. Our SERVPRO team uses portable extractors when removing the water from areas with limited space; otherwise, we use truck-mounted pumps when space is big enough.
Another technique we use to remove the water is dehumidification. Our SERVPRO technicians use this method once the physical extraction process is complete and heaters/air movers have been put in place to evaporate the water. The work of dehumidifiers is to remove the additional moisture that evaporates from surfaces to the air.
Our team performs deodorization to deal with any unpleasant smells in the area. By using thermal foggers, we can dispense agents into the target locations. Sometimes the deodorants we use are flammable, so we turn off any sources of ignition or pilot lights.
