You Need Prompt Water Removal When Your Shreveport Home Springs a Leak

5/15/2018 (Permalink)

When facing water damage from an outside or inside of the home source, calling SERVPRO immediately gets you on the road to remediation.

Team SERVPRO Arrives on the Scene Ready to Tackle Your Water Damage Emergency

Because of the tremendous pressure behind your Shreveport home's water supply, even a slight leak can cause severe problems. Thousands of gallons of water can enter your home through a broken water line on an appliance or faucet in a concise amount of time. If nobody is home when this happens, the damages can become extremely severe.
 
Residents can rely on SERVPRO professionals for emergency water removal services in Shreveport. Our ability to respond Faster To Any Sized Disaster means we save our customers from paying for preventable damages. We also reduce the time their families cannot live in their homes because of the mitigation work that follows water removal.
 
Our Green Fleet includes the truck-mounted pumps that initialize our work. Other equipment arrives ready to start, as we always keep each piece in excellent running condition. All our equipment works together, much like our employees work as part of cohesive teams - all designed to serve our customers' needs better.
 
Additional equipment includes small pumps that we use to extract any residual moisture from your floors. While we reduce this moisture to where they become barely damp, we need to dry these surfaces and others, such as your lower walls, even more. We accomplish this by increasing the temperature, which accelerates evaporation, and directing the damp air outdoors.
 
In locations where warping, buckling, or cracking of materials seem more likely to happen, as in wooden floors, trim, or other structural aspects, we can use directed heat with extraction mechanisms built into them. The interior of your walls can also retain excessive amounts of water that flowed in before we could extract any of the water. This trapped water can remain there unless we drill tiny holes to release it. Afterward, we can feed flexible tubing into the area and fill it with dry, warm air that acts as a desiccant.
 
Leaving any moisture behind from such a massive water leak can leave your home open to several types of damages. Water damage can continually deteriorate softer materials in your home while warping more durable ones. Microbes grow much more easily in damp conditions. Elevated moisture can cause corrosion in hinges and other metal fastenings in your home, as well as any electrical conduits. Water removal protects your home from these damaging effects.
 
SERVPRO of South Shreveport can help you protect your home by performing quick and efficient water removal services designed to mitigate and reduce any damages your home might experience otherwise. Our emergency services number is (318) 865-4655 and is always available, every minute of the year.
