SERVPRO Water Damage Ridgefield Alabama
Ridgefiled, Alabama SERVPRO Water Damage Services
Every year, millions of dollars are lost to hurricanes, damaged plumbing and failed sewer systems. These losses can happen with significant damage or even if there are just a few inches of water in your home.
Water damage to Ridgefield homes; regardless if it's an apartment, house or trailer, can be reduced if the water is removed quickly. To make sure this happens, SERVPRO maintains a 24-hour response team. Our technicians are trained to the highest standards required by the restoration business, and we keep an extensive inventory of equipment on-hand to tackle any job.
First, our team will try to stop the source of the flooding and pump out all standing water. This may mean turning off the water into your home or helping to sandbag overflow from Mobile Bay or another body of water. In most homes, technicians can remove all standing water in less than a day.
Next, our SERVPRO technicians will remove the water you can't see but can hear and feel. Water extractors are used to draw out moisture from carpets and floors (concrete and wood) to prevent fading, cracking, and warping. Wood floors, in particular, are very expensive to replace and damaged concrete floors can take weeks to remove and replace. To ensure that it is completely moisture free, technicians may also place a series of heaters to speed up the drying process.
With the natural water removed, our team will check air moisture content. If the levels in your home are too high, there is an increased chance of damage from mold. To bring the level down to normal, a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers will be deployed.
Air movers are industrial blowers that exchange the damp, humid air with dry air from outside of your home. They are set up at entrances to the affected rooms. Dehumidifiers draw water from the air and surrounding material (sheetrock and wallboard) to lower air moisture content. Depending on the size, these devices can remove over 25 gallons of water from the air per day.
