Metairie Residents Rely on SERVPRO for Water Damage Cleanup and Restoration

SERVPRO Can Inspect, Scope, and Initiate Successful Water Removal to Mitigate Damage

Doing laundry is essential to keep your clothes clean and to good hygiene, but it is unfortunate when accidents related to your appliances cause water damage inside of your home. Accidents happen; hoses break, washers leak, and the excess water can cause damage to your tile or linoleum floors in your laundry room. When situations like these arise, there is no need to panic.
Professional and qualified help is not far from your Metairie home to assist with the water damage caused by a broken washer hose. While the time it takes to go to work and come back may not seem like a lot, it is enough time for the water to do damage. In fact, when the structure of your home and the materials inside are exposed to water, microbial growth can occur in just 72 hours or less. When you find water pooling in your home, it is essential to call for professional help immediately.
We can send our SERVPRO estimator to your home first if the damage is significant. Water leaks on the second floor that flow down through the flooring into the subfloor and walls of the room below are very problematic. While you wait for our techs, they can investigate and explain to you the process our technicians are likely to choose to remediate your home. Shortly after, our technicians can arrive with advanced equipment to handle the water damage.
If there is any pooled water on your laundry-room floor, our IICRC-certified techs can remove it with extractors and mops and buckets. They can use moisture meters to determine the level of moisture inside the structure of your home. This allows them to pinpoint areas of your home that are in need of drying. We often use blue painters tape as designating high moisture levels within ceilings and wall cavities. Finally, our SERVPRO techs can use a combination of desiccant dehumidifiers, ventilation box fans, and air movers to create an ideal environment for drying out your home.
If you find water damage inside of your home caused by a faulty appliance, do not wait. Phone (504) 468-3046 to contact SERVPRO of Metairie. 24/7, we are available to help you with your home-damage emergency.
