Water Damage Causing Grief And Embarrassment In Your Fort Myers Home
Daily tasks involving hygiene involve water, soap, and other items. Bathrooms, especially around tub and shower areas, are designed to be watertight. However, over time, the materials that seal these areas can disintegrate and allow moisture to enter into areas where it soon causes deterioration. Once inside, this moisture can become trapped or travel within the walls to other parts of your home.
When guests come for a visit to your Fort Myers home, ugly water damage can become a source of constant embarrassment. Many people decide to say nothing when their hosts' bathroom has obvious damage from exposure to water, but that does not make it go away.
When you notice that your ceiling's paint is flaking off or that debris is washed out from behind the shower's wall each time you clean the stall, you are viewing one way that water damages a home. Children, including teens, enjoy peeling paint while watching how much can be pulled off at a time. Doing this can increase the appearance of damage already present.
Our technicians at SERVPRO can help you regain your gorgeous bathroom once again. Our team has certified Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) who know the procedures outlined by the IICRC. These are internationally accepted methods that continually prove they are the most effective in restoring a home. You can have your bathroom and all other sections of your home that were affected, restored back to beautiful condition again.
Sealing up where caulking disintegrated and fell apart is a bad idea as it can trap moisture inside the wall. This moisture needs to be eliminated first. Because it may have moved to other areas in your home, we use hygrometers and moisture detectors to reveal hidden areas that contain moisture. After removing the hidden water, we can begin to restore materials too damaged for salvaging. We do our best to keep this to a minimum, but doing so is not always possible.
After replacing and restoring the area, we are always careful to clean up after ourselves. Our employees are dedicated and helpful individuals who want to see our customers receive the fullest benefit of our efforts. With a fully restored and once-again gorgeous bathroom, you can forget about being embarrassed when guests visit you and your family.
