Why SERVPRO Delivers Successful Water Damage Recovery Results in St. Petersburg 

Achieving professional proficiency in water loss mitigation and remediation requires mastery of an interrelated system of strategies and training in proper equipment operation. Our managers and crews complete basic and ongoing advanced training through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the restoration industry’s international standards-setting organization. This commitment to proper education in our field is why we can achieve the highest quality results for our customers. 

Water Loss Frequently Starts Inside 

Water damage in St. Petersburg can trace back to regional events like severe storms, of course, including hurricanes, but the most common causes are ordinary wear and tear. Plumbing leaks and appliance malfunctions are the most likely reasons why we respond when water escapes and spreads in your home.  

Water Detection, Measuring, and Monitoring Is the Key 

Our crews are well-informed on how to locate the source of the damage. Even more crucial to successful restoration is our solid foundation in water migration mapping techniques. This ability, supported by state of the art tools, plus water removal and drying strategies mastered through IICRC training and on the job experience, are why SERVPRO delivers results that meet or exceed industry best practice goals.  

Remove Trapped Water  

Lingering moisture causes progressive deterioration of building materials and exposes your home and family to the risks of mold growth and damage. Extraction is hundreds of time more efficient than structural drying alone, why SERVPRO researchers and implements ways to remove liquid water even in hard to access places. Methods we use include: 

  • Portable extractors with wand extenders to reach water in confined spaces (example: cells of cinder blocks in a foundation) 
  • Negative air pressure systems that use mats sealed to multi-layer surfaces to suction out fluids (example: hardwood or tile and subfloors) 
  • Controlled demolition to release water (examples: holes drilled in baseboards or flood cuts above the waterline on drywall)

Dry All Affected Structures 

Once the bulk of the water exits via our extractors and pumps, drying proceeds rapidly. Effective drying requires balancing temperature and air movement to facilitate drying, followed by positioning dehumidification equipment to capture and contain the vapor for disposal. Humidity levels and temperatures vary in every scenario, why SERVPRO stocks service vehicles with a range of air movers and both refrigerant and desiccant dehumidifiers.  

Emphasis on thorough preparation is why SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg makes water damage of all types “Like it never even happened.” Contact us at (727) 522-0000 to line up an experienced crew to help manage your loss.
