Drying Combats Water Damage in Frederick Properties
Water Restoration Steps SERVPRO® Takes to Dry Frederick Properties
You may have chosen Frederick as your residence for many reasons, including its high quality of life. Amenities in the area range from parks and restaurants to recreational centers. Some notable parks include Baker Park, Carroll Creek Park, and Riverwalk Park. Recreational centers, on the other hand, include Bernard W. Brown Community Center and Talley Center. Water damage can instantaneously ruin the quality of life at your home, leaving surfaces and materials wet and triggering deterioration in structural areas and contents.
Resolving the water damage at your Frederick home addresses many problems simultaneously. Drying stops materials like wood from swelling or rotting, cloth items from bleeding dyes, and metal items from rusting. Several steps are necessary for efficient drying. SERVPRO helps facilitate restorations, ensuring all the steps progress accordingly.
Essential Water Restoration Steps
- Enhancing structural safety
- Water removal
- Drying wet materials
Water creates many hazards in a residence, whether you have a historical property like the Barbara Fritchie House, John C. Motter House, James K.P. Wolfe House, or a modern-day home. Slippery surfaces, falling objects, and electrical are likely in a water-rich setting. SERVPRO technicians inspect your premises, determining critical actions to manage hazards. Disconnecting power, setting up warning signs, and drying wet floors are simple yet highly effective ways to safeguard people in a water-damaged property.
Sufficient water extraction helps complete the drying process fast. Water extraction equipment, such as wet vacuums and drying mats, fast-track the process compared to mopping the wet areas. With vacuum extractors, SERVPRO technicians can remove water trapped in porous materials like carpets and upholstery, thus ensuring the drying process goes as expected.
After addressing the water left on surfaces, drying the moisture absorbed by materials is essential to finalize the process. This step requires sustained evaporation and humidity control. SERVPRO has a variety of equipment to facilitate drying.
- Air movers - facilitate evaporation
- Dehumidifiers - extract moisture trapped in the air
- Cavity-drying equipment - facilitates drying in hidden structural compartments
