Water damage in the Metairie area can be very stressful. However, knowing what to expect, you can relax and be confident that everything is going to be ok. Once help has arrived, the first thing that technicians usually do is inspect and evaluate the damage. They often use high-tech instruments that measure the moisture content in your home. They usually put the device on top of a surface like the ceiling, baseboards, and floor to get an accurate reading. Depending on the moisture reading, your tech can assess if specific drying equipment is required.
SERVPRO techs know very well that the longer water damage is left untreated, the more likely additional damage can incur, which is why they always act immediately to prevent mold growth or other hazards. They can utilize fancy vacuum equipment to extract all the water that is present in the area. Once they remove all the standing water, the SERVPRO tech can start drying your home. They can use an air mover to circulate air flow throughout the room. If you have hardwood floors, they might use floor mats to help absorb additional water from the floor. If anything, they can help remove the baseboards and drill holes into drywall to enhance the drying process. During the whole drying procedure, the wet areas are taped off to ensure that the work crew can maintain the environment of the room and dry the home as quickly and conveniently as possible. Once they complete the drying process, they can remove the equipment or any unsalvageable belongings from your home. Then the technician can walk you through the entire establishment to make sure that you are satisfied with the work.
