Why You Should Trust SERVPRO of Highland Park for Water Removal in Highland Park
SERVPRO Offers Prompt Water Extraction Services in Highland Park
Many situations can cause your home to sustain water damage. For instance, a leaky or burst pipe can cause water to collect in the spaces between flooring and walls in the structure. This can lead to damage to structure and contents and mold growth, which can cause health effects.
When you discover signs of water intrusion, one of the first things you need to do is verify the extent of the destruction. Then, you should call a certified firm like SERVPRO to perform water removal in your Highland Park residence. Many building materials can absorb water and moisture from the source of the moisture intrusion without creating visible signs of water damage. To precisely establish how far the water has spread, our team uses specialized tools for measuring moisture in building materials. We can use moisture meters to measure the moisture content of the materials where we noticed the water intrusion.
At SERVPRO, we also use thermal imaging cameras (infrared cameras) to inspect and monitor the moisture in building materials. These cameras display infrared images. They do not detect moisture but rather the temperature differences on the material’s surface. The advantages of using a thermal imaging camera include:
- No destruction happens to building materials
- The ability to inspect difficult areas
- The capability to inspect more areas in less time
Infrared cameras are more useful when used together with moisture meters. Our SERVPRO crew continues to make checks progressively further from the destruction site to establish how widespread the destruction is and the severity of the moisture intrusion. With this information, our crew can determine if we need to concentrate on drying out the affected contents or remove them to make way for replacement with undamaged materials.
Our SERVPRO team is trained to use the right equipment to remove water and dry a building thoroughly. For instance, when drying low evaporation materials such as drying hardwood flooring, we use desiccant dehumidifiers.
Water extraction services involve more than cleaning, removing, and repairing places that water has touched. Call SERVPRO of Highland Park at (323) 255-1001 for efficient restoration.
