SERVPRO Combines the Best Technical Skills and the State of the Art Equipment to Deliver Satisfactory Services

The damage left in a St. Petersburg property after water intrusion can be categorized in many ways, including the introduction of foreign materials and deterioration of onsite materials. The restoration resources you use should be strong enough to remove the foreign matter and reinstate the onsite materials to their preloss condition.  

Timing is another crucial aspect that influences resource allocation during water damage restoration in St. Petersburg properties. A professional team like SERVPRO marshals sufficient human resources and equipment to cope with any urgency of resolving water intrusion.

The Resources That Have a Major Impact on Water Restoration Include:

  • Water extraction and cleaning equipment
  • Technical skills in moisture management 
  • Drying equipment
  • Site management resources

The need for some equipment such as water extractors is obvious since the restoration cannot happen if there is still water left stagnating in your house. However, the choice of specific equipment may be challenging. Our SERVPRO technicians decide based on the amount of water or the type of surfaces involved. For high volumes of water or if the affected surface is porous such as a carpet, we choose equipment with high vacuum lift capacity.

Moisture Has Many Detrimental Effects on Materials, Including Causing:

  • Stains
  • Rust and corrosion
  • Swelling and warping
  • Weakening materials

Different materials react differently to moisture exposure. The changes may be immediate or might take some time to manifest. Some problems are reversible if the restoration process is properly planned. For instance, wood swells on absorbing water but can be reinstated with timely corrective action. Our SERVPRO crews evaluate the situation to determine the best approach. If it is a wooden floor, removing some floorboards allows swelling without buckling. We also use drying chambers to control the drying of wet wood. 

Control is essential when handling every aspect of water restoration. For instance, organizing the worksite can improve turnaround time and minimize hazards. That is why SERVPRO teams bring dumpsters or portable storage units for site management.
