If the Waves Wet Your Home--Call SERVPRO

SERVPRO Removes the Water from Your Fort Myers Home to Mitigate Water Damage

Fort Myers water damage can occur very quickly after the appearance of water in your house. It is the beginning of more problems than just the arrival of a new swimming pool in your house. It might mean that you have a burst pipe or a leaking water heater. It might also mean that a sewer connection, just outside your house, has broken. Whether it's the flooding from a local stream or river or the Gulf of Mexico, you have a problem that must be handled by professionals, like those from SERVPRO, to ensure your Fort Myers home gets water removal service quickly.

Water, entering your home regardless of the reason is not okay for the comfort and health of your family. The water that is absorbed into your drywall, carpeting and furnishings can result in an extensive monetary loss. Waterlogged drywall, walls or ceilings, must be safely discarded to prevent mold from cross-contaminating previously unaffected areas of your home. Replacement will then add to the restoration costs.

SERVPRO will pump the unwanted water from the property using truck mounted pumps, sump pumps, wet vacs, and even mops to remove the gross volumes of water. Air movers and dehumidifiers will be placed to increase the evaporation rate of the moisture within the structure to speed the restoration process and to mitigate secondary water damage. This typically takes 2 to 3 days, depending on the specifics of your property's damage.

The cleaning starts with green technology cleansers and specific SERVPRO products. These are used on every hard surface because of the residue from the water. This residue is composed of germs, bacteria, pollen, mold spores and regular dust and dirt. Sanitizing all surfaces using disinfectants, antimicrobial, and antifungal agents provide a clean, and healthy environment for you and your family.

The damage done by the water that was in your home has to be repaired at this time. The sheet rock and ceiling tiles that were removed must be replaced and any drapery removed must be cleaned and rehung. Any clothing that has been cleaned needs to be hung back up, and all cushions that have been cleaned need to be replaced in the furniture. Rubbing the wood furniture down with essential oils helps protect them and final cleaning and detailed wiping is part of the finishing touches. This style of treatment will be dictated by the severity and locations of the water damage within your home.

SERVPRO trains and instructs its technicians to follow the standards set forth by the IICRC-Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, Restoration Certification. Our commitment to excellence will assure that your home is treated using the best cleaning techniques, equipment, and expertise to minimize the effects of water damage to your Fort Myers home.
