Why is a Fast Response So Important to Water Damage Restoration?

The Key to Successfully Restore Water Damaged Areas in a home is a quick response from SERVPRO.

Water damage is not to be treated lightly. Our experts recommend that professional treatment should begin within the first 48 hours after the damage has been discovered.  Treatment is critical to minimize the growth of toxic molds and bacteria that can damage the integrity of the structure and also put at risk the health of its occupants. Studies have found that molds and bacteria will start to grow on untreated wet drywall in less than 48 hours. In addition to inhibiting toxic microbial growth, the treatment also limits permanent water damage to the structure itself.

It is essential to secure a professional who specializes in water damage in the Louisville area, such as SERVPRO, to begin the cleanup process as early as possible. Allowing our trained service professionals to assess the extent of the damage and begin treatment early will reduce the amount of permanent water damage sustained to the structure and personal effects. Remediation begins by removing the water as soon as possible. Extraction pumps will be used to remove visible water. The removal of wet materials, such as carpets, drywall, and insulation, will also be part of the necessary actions performed by the SERVPRO expert. Drying out the affected area is critical to minimize the growth of bacteria and mold. Commercial dryers and high-efficiency dehumidifiers will be used to complete the water removal process.

Ensuring that the level of moisture is at an acceptable level, the SERVPRO restoration team will monitor the area with a hygrometer. This moisture level reading is especially important for small closed in spaces, behind cabinetry or in recessed areas of the structure. Beginning the reconstruction prior to moisture level reduction increases the probability that mold and mildew will become an issue in the future.

The successful completion of the restoration of your Louisville home greatly depends on how soon our trained professionals can start the process. The best service offers 24-hour availability, and SERVPRO is ready to begin the water removal process immediately--Faster to Any Size Disaster. Water damage is disheartening, but letting our trained team of professionals handle the cleanup and restoration of your home provides peace of mind.
