Storm water damage to your home can be devastating, and you may be left feeling like life cannot be normal again. SERVPRO is here to reassure you that it is possible to get your home back “Like it never even happened,” and the first step is placing a call to our restoration professionals.
The key to water damage restoration after a storm in Santa Rosa Beach is a thorough assessment of the situation. There is usually some undeniable water damage such as standing water on the floor, water-logged carpets, or wet furniture. An initial visual inspection reveals these problems easily.
However, there are many places storm water penetrates that are not visible to the naked eye. For example: Underneath carpets or wooden floors, in crawl spaces, basements or attics, behind baseboards or cabinetry, or inside HVAC ducts. Water damage might also reach insulation inside walls.
In addition to structural damage, there is also water damage to specific items such as furniture, drapes, rugs, clothes, electronics or other household items.
SERVPRO’s skilled technicians check and take note of every single water damaged item or area. A thorough inventory allows us to devise a drying goal and drying process that takes every element into account and ensures no damp patches are left behind. Complete drying is necessary not only to prevent further structural damage and make your home feel like your own again – it is also a crucial step in the prevention of mold growth.
We train our IICRC-certified technicians to use a range of instruments for assessment, including moisture probes, penetrating moisture meters, thermal hygrometers, and infrared imaging. We also ensure our people follow a strict procedure for examining walls, floors, subfloors, carpets, cabinetry, baseboards, and other hidden areas where moisture lurks.
