How Water Extraction Professionals Help Protect Beverly Hills Properties from Secondary Damages

After a Beverly Hills residence takes on water from a water leak, restoring a dry interior becomes essential to protecting the home's structure and contents from additional harm. Because water quickly evaporates and turns to water vapor, and then, soon after, condense on other surfaces, it is almost impossible to contain lost water.  

If your property is holding water where it should be dry, SERVPRO's water extraction team in Beverly Hills can get things dry, check for current damaged areas, and carry out preventative measures that enhance the work we do. Different materials absorb and retain water, as well as exhibit different ways in which exposure to water affects them. The drying rates also differ between various elements. Knowledge of this information helps us determine the best methods to use while working on your home.  

Water extraction begins with an assessment of the area which provides us with valuable information about the materials involved and the amount of water we need to remove. Part of our water extraction work includes removing waterlogged sections of carpet and drywall. Sometimes we can restore carpeting, but this depends on several factors.  

Removing the moisture that microbes need to grow and destroy materials inside your dwelling, as well as stain clothing and other personal belongings, happens when we remove the water vapor these microorganisms require. Without this extra source of moisture, your home's interior structures and contents remain safe from the effects of microorganisms.  

Mold damage is not the only type of secondary water damage that homes face when water exists in living areas. Stained sections of ceilings in levels below where the accident took place can appear later. The stains are not because of mold, but the discoloration happens when minute particles leach through the drywall and paint. Other problems that can affect a ceiling include warping. Warped ceilings can become highly risky, as they can collapse from the weight of any trapped water. SERVPRO knows how to rectify both situations and make your home “Like it never even happened.”  

Wooden floors and edging that gets wet can become permanently damaged. SERVPRO knows how to dry such aspects of your home, so existing damage decreases in scope. We use industry-accepted procedures, helping these natural components of your home regain their original look as much as possible.
