What Points Should Not Be Overlooked During Water Removal from Cheshire Properties?
No Issue is Trivial for SERVPRO When Performing Water Damage Repairs in Cheshire Homes
Water intrusion from burst pipes or other sources creates significant problems, especially in Cheshire homes. In many cases, people focus on substantial issues like material deterioration during water removal. However, it pays to address the seemingly trivial problems.
A factor like the level of relative humidity is a crucial consideration during water removal from your Cheshire home. Condensation, the transfer of water damage from areas exposed initially to the water spill to other structural areas, is an issue with high humidity. Elevated humidity also creates a conducive environment for mold development. SERVPRO ensures the relative humidity levels in the house remain in the acceptable range throughout the removal process. We use thermo-hygrometers to take readings from each room and set up dehumidifiers for control if the levels exceed 50%.
Regulating humidity is essential when addressing problems caused by:
- Burst pipes
- Ceiling leaks
- Emergency services water damage
- Leaking roof from storms
Contamination is a common issue after water intrusion. Most people only think of contamination if the water source is not clean. However, microbial growth is typical on wet surfaces or if water is left to sit for too long, turning clean water loss to greywater loss or greywater loss to black water loss. Our SERVPRO technicians incorporate antimicrobial chemical agents when cleaning surfaces after extracting water to eliminate contaminants.
