Customized Water Damage Restoration Services For Your Durham Home

If you do not correct the water damage problem as soon as it happens, then additional challenges are likely to develop. For instance, if water removal does not take place within 24-48 hours, then some molds are expected to start growing on materials such as insulation, drywall, paper, and wood - items that readily absorb water. Our team performs rapid cleaning and drying when attending to such incidents in Durham to prevent their growth.

Our SERVPRO technicians remove wet materials from your house to make the cleaning process more manageable. If there are acoustical tiles in the house, we carefully inspect them since they can absorb moisture. If necessary, we can open up finished walls and drill holes slightly above the waterline. Even when the wall appears to be dry, we can use a moisture meter to confirm its moisture level. We make sure the area is thoroughly dry before sealing the drilled holes.

Our SERVPRO technicians have to clean the surfaces and materials by scrubbing with detergent or water. If some stubborn grease or stains exist on concrete surfaces, then we can use trisodium phosphate (TSP) cleaner to remove them. TSP has corrosive properties, and our technicians wear goggles and gloves when using it. At the end of cleaning it is time to dry things out.

Drying materials and surfaces lower chances of bacteria and mold growth. During this step, we use wet-dry vacuums to remove water off materials and surfaces. These vacuums have attachments that help us to access the hard-to-get-at sections of your home. To enhance the drying process, we can put in place mechanical fans and heaters - heating never goes beyond 35ºC. As materials lose water to the surrounding, it is essential to absorb the moisture with the help of dehumidifiers. Desiccant dehumidifiers and refrigerant dehumidifiers are the common types of dehumidifiers that our team uses.
