Some Warning Signs of Possible Secondary Damages After Water Damage in Your Miramar Beach Home

Whether water damage affects your basement or a bedroom, water removal is essential. Contact our SERVPRO team for an assessment.

Mitigating Loss and Guarding Against Future Damages During Water Cleanup in Miramar Beach

When water travels, it absorbs materials and chemicals. These materials and chemicals can quickly become a health problem if they contain pathogens or are potentially toxic. In most cases, the contents of the water are relatively benign, although they still contain microbes and fungi spores that could spread around your home. Professional service can limit the impact of unpleasant odors or microbes after a spill.

Properties that require water cleanup in Miramar Beach rely on a fast response to ensure no unnecessary damage is caused. They also need to be treated with a two-step approach — the first step is to mitigate the loss, the second to guard against future issues. SERVPRO uses IICRC certificate holders who have training in multiple areas of restoration. This ensures we are able to clear away damages correctly and prevent secondary damages occurring months down the line.

Remediating a personal property requires care and attention to detail. Fabrics, for example, can become up to 50% weaker when wet. That means applying a one-size-fits-all approach to restoration can cause further damage to your possessions. Here at SERVPRO, we take every case as it comes. Carpeted properties benefit from the use of portable extractor wands to remove moisture without damaging the fabrics underneath.

We know that fabrics can be expensive. That is why we work toward a restore over replace method. Running an extractor over the affected area several times may be more time-consuming but is also more cost efficient for our customers. We are happy to take the time we need to ensure our work is as beneficial to you as it can be.

SERVPRO water technicians frequently have cross training in mold assessment and remediation meaning they can apply a wealth of restoration expertise to each job. Carpets removal is common in water cleanup, but thoroughly treating both sides of the carpet with anti-microbial chemicals to limit mold growth is rare. At SERVPRO we are always looking to complete a job correctly rather than quickly, which is why we have such a strong reputation in this community.
To thoroughly restore your property, contact SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa / Walton / Holmes & Washington Counties at (850) 267-0746.
