SERVPRO Removes Hidden Water in Boynton Beach Homes and Mitigates Damage
Broken Appliance Spillage Means Water Removal Specialists for Boynton Beach
It can surprise many residents in Boynton Beach at the number of water-using appliances inside their homes. These are not the only devices that can cause water mishaps in the house, however. During meal preparation, many families use the garbage disposal to get rid of discarded vegetables and other waste. A small leak can result in a small, steady drip then can damage the sink cabinet, walls, and floor.
In Boynton Beach, SERVPRO's water removal team can restore any such affected areas in your property. Extracting all of the moisture, cleaning up the area, and making it “Like it never even happened” remains our goal for all of our customers. Another culprit in causing such problems includes air conditioners window units that cannot keep up with the removal of moisture during heat waves and excessively humid periods. Drops of water that collect in the tray and then overflow into the window sill can cause problems inside the wall below.
While such situations happen in localized areas of your home, water can migrate to other areas quite easily and rapidly. We use thermal imaging cameras to find these locations. The appearance of cooler regions on the screen can indicate increased moisture content levels. Our technicians then test those areas to determine how much moisture they do contain, which helps determine the next course of action.
Drying an area of excess moisture and removing unwanted water needs to happen steadily. We do this to prevent moisture from seeping back into newly dried areas. Moisture travels from moister areas to drier ones, so once we achieve optimal dryness in materials, we do not want any moisture re-entering that location. Steady, continual drying prevents this and is why we request customers to not turn off machinery or other equipment without first letting us know. We want to obtain the best results possible for you at the lowest possible cost.
Since some materials dry more quickly than other materials, it is crucial that slower-drying materials receive more concentration of effort from air movers, heaters, and water extraction equipment than porous materials. Concrete, brick, and sealed areas take a long time to dry thoroughly. Vinyl wallpaper, some paints, and particular primers can make these areas retain moisture.
