Preventing Future Problems When Fixing Water Damage Incidents in Jamestown
Many problems are apparent after water leaks or other related incidents. The common ones include wet materials, stains, and other forms of soiling. Apart from the primary damages, there might be secondary issues such as mold, warping, rotting, and other forms of deterioration, including bad odor. When dealing with water damage, SERVPRO strives to solve both current and future problems.
Microbial growth can happen in all water damage incidents in Jamestown if the conditions are right. Microbial growth mostly manifests in the form of mold patches on various surfaces, including wood and concrete. Given time, the mold infestation can penetrate beyond the surface by eating into organic materials. Our SERVPRO technicians work hard to limit the time materials are exposed to wetness since time is a primary factor in mold development. We also apply antimicrobial agents on different surfaces after extraction and cleaning actions. For example, after extracting water from carpets, we use antimicrobial agents on the carpet backing and the floor surface to inhibit microbial growth.
During water damage incidents, some of the water can be readily accessed, especially when it stagnates on surfaces or is absorbed into materials that do not inhibit drying. However, some filters into cavities and other hidden crevices within the property. If left unaddressed, such moisture leads to deterioration of materials. For instance, frames and other structural supports can rot compromising their structural integrity. Our SERVPRO technicians open up hidden areas, including walls and subfloors, to remove or dry wet materials, eliminating future problems.
A bad odor may develop after water damage. Although its impact may be minor compared to the other issues, odor issues make property uncomfortable to occupants. Deodorization steps such as misting affected areas with a deodorizer using a ULV fogger helps control bad smells. We allow the product to soak into materials for at least two to four hours before ventilating the area.
A simple water loss incident can lead to many future problems. Call SERVPRO of Jamestown / Olean at (716) 338-4901 to help. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
