Highland Park SERVPRO Technicians Implement Water Cleanup and Odor Control Strategies

Residential water damage disasters are among the most frequent in the United States. Supply line leaks, old plumbing components, and damaged appliances are common culprits. This moisture can leave Highland Park properties with more than just wet walls, floors, or furniture to clean. Mold can grow from 24 to 72 hours of moisture exposure and spread to form colonies in less than two weeks in ideal conditions.

Highland Park SERVPRO water damage cleanup ensures that damaged property is returned to a pre-disaster condition, emphasizing restoration and repair when feasible. Water mitigation teams are deployed with sophisticated tools that thoroughly clean structural materials, carpets, upholstery, and other belongings. SERVPRO emphasizes the value of both tried-and-true water cleanup methods and sophisticated technologies and combines both for the optimal outcome during mitigation.

Highland Park Home Inspections Can Lessen Water Damage Impact

While some disasters occur without warning in areas that would be difficult for homeowners to inspect without removing structural materials, that does not make water damage prevention a fruitless effort. Highland Park residents can keep an eye on the following areas in their homes to lower the risk of water damage:

  • Check refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher door gaskets for signs of cracks or tears that water could seep through.
  • HVAC condensate lines are another frequent source of water damage leaks that can impact walls and ceilings
  • Pinholes or loose hookups on supply lines for refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines can be prevented with periodic inspections and occasional replacement of parts.
  • Water heater leaks are another type of disaster that can occur, typically from damage to the tank, valves, or plumbing.

SERVPRO Water Cleanup Services Extend Beyond Moisture Mitigation

Regardless of the damage’s source, SERVPRO water removal technicians respond to cleanup calls 24/7. This fast-responding service prevents water damage from further impacting a property or proliferating potential microbial growth.

After an initial consultation and inspection, crew members begin the water cleanup process by inspecting surfaces with various moisture measurement apparatuses. Penetrating and non-penetrating sensors and meters calibrated for different materials determine surface-level and internal moisture levels. Thermal imaging cameras visualize temperature changes consistent with moisture exposure behind wall cavities and other hard-to-reach surfaces so that crews can build a more accurate and comprehensive water restoration plan.

The primary water removal mechanisms that SERVPRO teams use include portable extraction units, carpet extractor wands, air movers, and dehumidifiers. Odor control can be achieved with EPA-registered biocides and solvent-based deodorizers, among other malodor removal solutions. SERVPRO professionals can also demolish structural materials when necessary for water mitigation services and make repairs to return a Highland Park property to its pre-disaster state. These services are rendered with coordination and approval from homeowners and insurers.
