Applied Structural Drying Technicians for St. Petersburg Homes

Water extraction might be one of the priorities of responding water restorers reaching your St. Petersburg home, but how your property gets dried after a disaster is equally important. Various methods can force temporary relocations, while other solutions might lean heavier on controlled demolition and build back. We determine the needs of every property individually during the scoping process conducted by our project manager.

No matter how severe water damage to St. Petersburg homes might be, we have skilled technicians and a team of dedicated residential contractors that can help to make it “Like it never even happened.” Along with the majority of our technicians obtaining their Water Restoration (WRT) accreditation through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), many of these same professionals also have an additional endorsement in Applied Structural Drying (ASD.)

The knowledge obtained in the receipt of the ASD certification gives our technicians confidence to find the appropriate drying solution for whatever water damage exists in your home. Part of their knowledge in this field dictates the appropriate drying equipment and techniques for saturated materials. Some structural elements are not salvageable in certain situations, like drywall that has been exposed to standing water for more than a day.

ASD technicians learn timely drying procedures during their training, helping them to make the best drying decisions on-site. For example, while it might take several days to sufficiently dry out saturated wood framing in a residence, it is often more cost-effective for the customer to wait this time than to incur the costs of controlled demolition and reconstruction unnecessarily. Likewise, a wet carpet and pad might be more cost-efficient to remove to protect and dry subflooring material like plywood and OSB board.

Drying a residence involves hundreds of decisions made both ahead of the responding team of technicians and during the restoration process. Our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg professionals have extensive training and experience in water recovery efforts, and you can reach our crew 24/7 by calling (727) 522-0000.
