How SERVPRO Intervention Limits Water Repairs in New Orleans

Water is a silent enemy against materials since exposure triggers minor and major problems in many sections of your business premises. If your New Orleans worksite has water damage, resolving it can be costly, inconvenient, and may interfere with your business operations. SERVPRO provides unique solutions to address the problems and inconveniences 

Ensuring convenience when resolving water damage in New Orleans premises partly depends on how well you understand the potential problems. Unlike other factors that damage properties, moisture effects take time to develop. Our SERVPRO technicians can assess your situation and inform you of potential issues and ways to resolve them correctly.

Problems that develop from moisture:

  • Stuck doors and windows or uneven floors
  • Rust and corrosion
  • Biohazard contamination
  • Mold or mildew growth

Moisture changes materials in ways that you might not expect. A problem like swelling in wooden materials after significant moisture absorption may leave you with inconveniences, such as interior doors failing to open or raised floor areas that may trip people. Reversing these changes is essential before they become permanent. When you involve SERVPRO, our crews can use specialized drying techniques, such as creating drying chambers for better moisture control and reversing the changes. 

Water Intrusion May Leave Your Property Unsanitary

Uncontrolled accumulation of microorganisms and vermin in any property is considered unsanitary. Although you cannot notice, there are microbial processes in the water retained by materials or stagnating on surfaces. With time you may end up with widespread mold infestation around the property. 

Unless the leak originates from a contaminated source such as a sewer line, other leaks do not cause unsanitary conditions instantaneously. However, they require a timely response and other actions to prevent the situation from changing. 

Other actions that help combat unsanitary conditions:

  • Using fast water extractors 
  • Applying biocides on wet surfaces
  • Finalizing drying by dehumidifying the property
