Getting Back to Normal After Water Damage

10/3/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Getting Back to Normal After Water Damage Mitigation - the act of lessening the force or intensity of something unpleasant, as wrath, pain, grief, or extreme circumstances.

The term mitigation means – the act of lessening the force or intensity of something unpleasant, as wrath, pain, grief, or extreme circumstances.[i]  One of the greatest parts of being one of the team members for SERVPRO® of Pompano Beach is that we are able to do just that; reduce the severity of a major loss: the water damage in your home or office.

Are All Water Disasters The Same?

Absolutely not!  Water damage is completely unique to each home, each source of intrusion, the magnitude of the damage and whether the water is clean water or contaminated.  Because of this, SERVPRO® of Pompano Beach must assess the job thoroughly to determine the proper course of action needed to get you back on your feet.

How Do We Do It?

Water Extraction –

Water extraction uses vacuum-type machinery to effectively remove all the surface water damage that is visible.  Once the source has been stopped, our skilled team of technicians and crew chiefs systematically begin removing the water from furniture as well as carpets and other forms of flooring.  This process stops the furthering of any water intrusion and prevents any more damage to your property.

Dehumidification –

Air has water in it.  When we watch the weather on our local news stations, they give us the relative humidity.  Humidity is the amount of water in your air.  Florida is notorious for having higher levels of humidity than some of the less tropical states in the U.S.  While most humidity is taken out of your home via your air conditioning system, when water loss happens the levels of moisture are too much for your HVAC system to take out on its own.  Our dehumidifiers raise the temperature level in the home or business and literally suck the moisture out of the surrounding area leaving your home dry and ready to move forward with repairs.

It is our passion to get your home clear of mold-causing moisture.  When moisture remains in a home for even a small amount of time, mold spores can grow.  Once mold occurs, it causes much more damage and can even affect the health of those who spend most of their time inside the home or office.

SERVPRO® of Pompano Beach is excited to begin the mitigation process in your place of business or your home.  And please tell your friends.  You never know you need us until you need us.  SERVPRO® has been faithfully serving the community for over 50 years and we would love to be your restoration service provider.
