SERVPRO Evaluates the Damages Caused by Moisture in Your Home Before Starting Restoration

Water causes several problems once released into a property. Resolving these problems takes more than just removal of the spilled water. Therefore, you should be prepared to take several steps for your Kalispell home to regain its preloss state.

The amount and quality of the water spilled determines the processes necessary to ensure the desired outcome from water restoration at your Kalispell home. If the incident involves significant amounts of water, vast sections of the property are left wet, thus necessitating widespread drying or removal of wet materials. Involving SERVPRO presents several advantages, including sufficient resources and skilled technicians to carry out various restoration tasks.

Typical restoration tasks include:

Spilled water interferes with the humidity levels in the entire house, including unaffected rooms. The changes arise because of the constant evaporation of the water pooling on surfaces or soaking into materials. High humidity levels promote microbial growth and cause discomfort for occupants. Our SERVPRO teams start humidity control immediately on arrival by setting up dehumidifiers.

Another crucial process is restoring standard moisture content for various materials, including wooden furniture and structural elements. The typical moisture level for dry wood is around 11%, and drying beyond this level can cause damage such as cracking. Leaving a higher moisture level also poses problems, including increased chances of rotting. Our SERVPRO technicians use air movements and dehumidification to dry the materials while monitoring moisture levels constantly.

Other useful restoration processes after water intrusion include:

  • Fogging affected areas with deodorants
  • Applying antimicrobial agents to cleaned surfaces
  • Refinishing any physically damaged areas
