SERVPRO Says Don't Let a Leak Turn Your Conroe Home into a Fish Bowl

Your Conroe Home's Water Damage is Restored by SERVPRO

When Conroe water damage strikes your personal property, securing prompt water damage restoration services is important. The negative effects of pooling water or accumulated moisture within your home can lead to many types of water damage. When personal items or structural materials become unsalvageable due to excessive water intrusion, the costs can be high, it terms of money, irreplaceable memorabilia, and time away from home. Toss in a possible mold infestation to compound the problems. The extent of water encroachment ascertained through professional assessment and inspection by a water damage restoration company like SERVPRO is beneficial. A wide range of techniques can be exercised to expedite and optimize the water removal process. One of those techniques is utilizing a classification system regarding the level of water, and its effects and the urgency required for its removal to mitigate material loss and exposure to health hazards.

Class 1: Slow Evaporation Rate. The water has only impacted one area, such as a plumbing leak in the kitchen or a drippy tap. The materials affected by the water are not extremely porous and susceptible to wicking. (Objects such as plywood, tile, and structural wood will not absorb significant amounts of the moisture). The water damage cleanup process for the slow evaporation rate is relatively quick. If this event were rapid, without standing or hidden pockets of water, you could probably handle the clean up. The important aspect of a successful drying is there is no accumulated, hidden moisture.

Class 2: Fast Evaporation Rate. In this scenario, the entire room is affected, or the flood situation reaches a depth totaling two feet. Urgent water extraction is necessary in the case of a sewage or septic tank problem. Moisture can be present in abundance after the affected structures appear to have dried out.

Class 3: Fastest Evaporation Rate. Water reaches a depth totaling more than two feet. This water has gotten into the property through an open window, major main break, or poured down overhead from a roof failure. These situations are a serious structural risk to your Conroe residential property.

Class 4: Specialty Drying Situations. Highly porous materials like drywall, wood furniture, concrete, brick, and hardwood items are saturated. This scenario, like the above ones, necessitates the use of special equipment. SERVPRO can extract large volumes of water by employing truck mounted water pumps, and portable sump pumps and wet-vacs.

Finding The Right Team Of Professionals. Regardless of the class of water damage to your property, hiring professional treatment services is a must. If your water damage issue goes unaddressed, or all the water and moisture are not successfully removed, increased structural damage or a mold infestation could occur. We can offer:
