SERVPRO Helps in Fort Lauderdale with Water Damage

One day everything can go as usual when suddenly you have an appliance malfunctioning in your house. Machines wear over time, and the older ones in your home risk breaking one day. And, to make matters worse, appliances like your washing machine or dishwasher could cause water to leak. If one of your appliances dies and spreads moisture, the results could be devastating even though the source may be a clean water line.

When our SERVPRO technicians work on mitigating water damage in Fort Lauderdale, we start by figuring out where the moisture originated. If we know the source is something like your broken dishwasher, we can turn off the water source to the appliance so that H2O stops leaking into your structure. Next, we can thoroughly inspect your building to see what all got negatively affected by the leak.

When water comes out of a pipe or appliance, it usually heads straight to your floors and starts to build up. However, once the moisture has reached the interior of your home, it can quickly begin soaking into your building materials and contents, causing further issues. Once standing water is on your floors, the H2O can also start evaporating into the air and cause secondary problems when the relative humidity levels get elevated.

We can set up a combination of air movers and dehumidifiers to prevent secondary damage like mold or humidity issues. The air movers push air around your house to speed up the drying process, and the dehumidifiers pull moisture out of the air.
