Step 2: Inspection and Water Damage Assessment

Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Measurement is Crucial to Removing Water from Your Coral Springs Home

While we do preliminary inspections in your home before mitigation starts, it is necessary to measure moisture levels on your Coral Springs property multiple times. This allows us to adequately extract moisture from surfaces and contents and return these items to their appropriate moisture levels.

What Can a Water Damage Do to Your Property?

Water damage can have a significant effect on structural materials and contents in your Coral Springs residence, such as:

  • Drywall. After exposure, drywall can warp, swell, and even crumble.
  • Carpet. Carpeting may be noticeably saturated. Fibers weaken and delaminate from the pad underneath.
  • Subfloor. A plywood subfloor can warp, crack, grow mold, and eventually rot depending on the duration of exposure.
  • Furniture. Furniture needs rapid drying and cleanup to prevent bleeding of furniture finishes or stains, as well as to avoid damaged framing and mold growth in upholstery.

SERVPRO is Committed to Careful Planning & Restoration

We plan everything from positioning air movers and dehumidifiers to extraction and sanitation for the surfaces in your home. A variety of factors affect the mitigation process, including air temperature and humidity, the openness of the affected area, and the materials affected.

Technicians calculate a variety of factors during planning, including:

  • Gallons of water that must be extracted
  • Air mover and dehumidifier placement
  • Air filtration equipment to improve indoor air quality
  • Heating system power usage
  • Air conditioning to offset heat generation

Identify and Stop the Water Source

We will check for the source of moisture in your home or business. The source must be stopped before any restoration or drying of the building can be successful.

  • Stop the Source
  • Check for Contaminated Water

Identify the Type of Water

We will identify the category and classification of water damage to ensure our professionals restore your property based on industry guidelines. The level of contamination of the water will affect the specific restoration processes we use.

  • Category 1: "Clean Water"
  • Category 2: "Gray Water"
  • Category 3: "Black Water"

Survey the Extent of the Water Damage and Inspect the Premises

We inspect and test to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns that may be evident. If there are any safety issues like lead or asbestos, please bring them to our attention.
