Water Cleanup in Louisville is Easier with Professional Assistance

Cleaning up a property damaged by water might not seem like a significant task especially when the water involved originates from a clean source. In practice, most Louisville homeowners establish many aspects that make the process harder to accomplish. Should a pipe burst in the ceiling or wall cavities, the water released collects dust and other debris which it transfers to other sections of the property. The water also soaks into fabrics such as draperies, area rugs, and upholstery among other things. Dyes in these fabrics can dissolve leading to stains.  

Help from a certified WRT, water restoration technician, like SERVPRO makes water cleanup in Louisville easier. We send a team of highly trained technicians who tackle different aspects of the cleanup process simultaneously. As we extract the water pooling around the property, we also handle stains in carpets because it is easier to remove them when wet. The water extractors that we use have both vacuuming and heating capabilities which helps further because heat quickens dissipation of some soils.  

The items in the affected areas complicate most clean up jobs. Apart from limiting movement, items such as furniture can also cause more problems if they have metallic stands that can rust or finishes that can dissolve in water. Our SERVPRO crew overcomes this obstacle easily by moving items away from the affected areas before starting the cleanup process. We can even move-out items to external storage facilities if the entire property is affected.  

Foul odors are common after water spills into a property, and several issues can cause them. The most common is microbial growth which only takes 24-48 hours to develop. Another cause is water pushing debris such as pet waste into hidden corners. Our SERVPRO crew takes measures to dry the property thoroughly after finishing the cleanup process. We also use phenolics and other antimicrobial cleaning agents during the cleaning process inhibiting mold growth from the start.  

Every water spill has unique challenges, but with an experienced team from SERVPRO of Lafayette/Louisville helping you, it is easy to deal with the challenges.
