Get Rid of Water Damage In Your Jerome Home For Good
SERVPRO - Restoring Water Damaged Homes In Jerome
Around Jerome, flooding is not a real concern unless much snow melts over a weekend. Even then, most home water intrusions are from more common issues like a pipe connection freezing and cracking. As the weather warms, homeowners get out more and can see where even minor damage can spill a lot of water over time.
When Jerome residents find this type of water damage, it can run from minor problems like replacing a couple of drywall panels, to an extensive rebuild of a garage or laundry room wall. Regardless of the extent, SERVPRO response teams are ready to repair and restore each home to its original condition.
Specialists begin with repairing the damage and removing the water. Team members can perform minor repairs such as replacing a connector or changing out a split hose. For major damage, the team leader always recommends using a licensed plumber or general contractor. After stopping the leak source, another team member begins drawing out the water with an extraction wand. In a smaller location like a garage, removal usually takes less than a day.
Next, SERVPRO specialists remove property for disposal or restoration. For leaks unnoticed over the winter, water can soak into and ruin paper, cardboard boxes, building material like wood and drywall, and fabrics like stored spring or summer clothing. In some cases, mold spores can expand and grow, rendering many of these items not restorable.
For restorable items, team members can combine drying them with drying out the garage as well. They place wet items on pallets or racks and install several fans to create air circulation within the garage and open the doors, weather permitting, to push the damp air outside.
To remove water from the inside air and draw it out of both personal and structural property, they install a dehumidifier. This device can remove over 20 gallons each day, depending on the amount of moisture in the air.
When needed, specialists can perform minor demolition and replace interior walls to include the framing. One of our trained teams can install it and hang new drywall, even in a large garage or laundry room, in only a day or two.
