SERVPRO Brings the Experience, Expertise, & Equipment to Water Damage Emergencies!
Why Controlling Microbial Growth is Essential to Water Cleanup in your Dallas Home
A thorough remediation service is one that does not require repeat visits to the property weeks or months after initial service. The presence of moisture is a contributing factor to microbial growth which can cause further damages in the home. Controlling microbial growth as well as removing and drying a structure requires professional expertise as well as advanced remediation equipment.
We provide technicians with qualifications from the IICRC for water cleanup in Dallas homes. Our service offers a two-stage procedure to both remediate the immediate concerns and potential secondary damages. That means using our expertise to control microbial growth while service is carried out, ensuring your property is restored to its preloss condition.
Moisture is the leading factor in allowing microbes to grow. It makes sense then that thoroughly drying property is critical in the first stage of the operation. SERVPRO technicians are equipped with thermal imaging cameras that use infrared light to detect damp spots or moisture pockets. We also carry moisture meters that can be used to penetrate beneath the surface of hard flooring or sheetrock to assess the level of water saturation within.
Finding where moisture is residing helps to inform us of the type of equipment we need to remediate your property. Water beneath subfloors can be extracted using drying mats. This equipment, which is placed on the floor, cover a large surface area. The central area of the mat attaches to a vacuum to draw water from the floor without damaging or scratching the surface.
Once the fast-drying process is complete, SERVPRO can adopt the second stage of treatment to reduce the likelihood of microbial growth. The removal and disposal of any porous contaminated materials are necessary for this step. We can also thoroughly disinfect surfaces and apply anti-microbial treatments to walls, floors, and upholstery.
