Why Stress Over Water Damage Remediation in Your West Palm Beach Home?
Water Damage Above and Below in West Palm Beach Home
This part of Florida is no stranger to high humidity, and that makes it even more crucial to act as quickly as possible when there is water damage. It is even more so when water loss events happen in an upstairs bathroom and make its way into floor joists and even the ceiling below.
When SERVPRO handled water damage in a West Palm Beach bathroom from an overflowed bathtub, we needed to attack the problem from above and below. Water ran under the tile flooring into the floor joists and dripped through the ceiling into the kitchen below as confirmed by our moisture detection probes and thermal imaging. We used portable pumps to extract as much moisture as possible so we could lessen the time the drying phase of restoration services would take.
Why SERVPRO? We know it is vital to get excessive moisture removed and dried as quickly as possible to avoid additional problems such as mold or weakening of building materials that later need replacing. We are based locally and can be on site soon after your call to help lessen losses through restoration and proprietary cleaning methods.
Our technicians set up air movers and dehumidifiers in the bathroom above to dry the flooring. To address the floor joists and ceiling, we drilled weep holes in the ceiling to allow greater airflow and fashioned a unique configuration using stiff plastic to create a plastic tube to force air from our air movers downstairs into the weep holes to deliver large quantities of air into the space to dry it thoroughly.
Once the water loss areas attained drying goals as confirmed with our detection equipment, we cleaned and disinfected the bathroom and kitchen. Our technicians paid particular attention to ensuring humidity levels in the bathroom and kitchen were well under ideal conditions for mold to become an issue from this event.
