Fast response to water damage can lessen your chances of water loss

When water gets into a home from a leak in a pipe or one in the roof, it can quickly turn to a mold infestation if steps are not taken to dry the structure and contents. Delays in arranging for help to dry your home or business may increase the amount of damage and expose the occupants to health issues. Folks that have compromised immune systems, asthmatics, young and older people are especially vulnerable to microbial growth.

SERVPRO provides water damage control and restoration services in Sterling as well as surrounding areas. There are several reasons we respond quickly to water damage events, usually in less than four hours on a 24/7 basis. The client is anxious about containing the damage and restoring their home as quickly as possible. We aim to help our clients deal with the chaos that a water damage event can cause as soon as possible.

Preventing Mold Growth

Responding quickly to these situations has another significant advantage. Drying the home and structure and removing contaminated materials is the only long term method of controlling and preventing the growth of mold. Applying professional disinfectant products in a humid environment can only provide a reprieve from the growth of mold and mildew.

SERVPRO training and experience with these situations demonstrate that removing moisture and drying is the best approach to containing infestations. Some materials that are contaminated and cannot be dried must be removed. Fast-drying the structure, flooring, and contents prevent further contamination. Maintaining humidity at below-average levels draws moisture out of carpets and underpads to assist in drying more quickly.

Professional products may still be needed to control microbial growth. SERVPRO ensures that these products are correctly applied, allowed to dwell long enough to be effective, and correct temperatures and PH levels are maintained to be effective. We also ensure that our clients and staff are adequately protected.
