Immediate Water Mitigation Reduces Total Damage to Mississauga Homes
Delay of Water Mitigation Action Risks Mould and Secondary Damage to Mississauga Buildings
Clients often wonder why it is crucial to begin water mitigation and clean up quickly in their Mississauga homes after a storm. Heavy rain storms create floods with water soaking your home in minutes. Water seeps into nooks and crannies and soaks into carpets, hardwood flooring, drywall, and porous building products. Fast action by our team can mitigate the total damage reducing your discomfort and restoration expense.
SERVPRO provides water mitigation and cleanup to residents of Mississauga. Our water mitigation efforts aim to eliminate water flow, extract floodwaters and dry the building and contents before extensive secondary damage occurs to your home. We follow industry-approved processes:
- Check structural stability
- Assess the amount of water and type – clear, gray, or black water
- Remove unsalvageable furniture and flooring
- Extract water using high-capacity pumps, and vacuums
- Large capacity fans and dehumidification equipment dry the building
- Disinfect salvageable contents and structure
- Provide roof coverings for damaged roof areas
- Board up the windows and the doors to prevent further water entry and provide security
Removing the water, lowering the humidity, and drying the damaged space prevent moisture from wicking into porous materials. Hardwood floors may absorb moisture, swell and buckle, permanently damaging the floor. Drywall structures are compromised when water is absorbed. Flood cuts may be needed to remove damaged drywall and dry the spaces inside walls. Many furniture items are constructed from compressed wood, which absorbs moisture, swells, and lose strength.
This type of damage can be prevented or reduced by taking quick action. SERVPRO can be on site four hours from your call to initiate mitigation and limit the damage caused by storms and water penetrating your home.
