Let us show you the correct way with your West Palm Beach water damage. 

Water spills cause many problems and might even force you to seek alternative accommodation until they are resolved. You might consider taking different steps to resolve the issue. However, it is crucial to understand the full impact of any action taken before you start. Alternatively, you can engage a professional that deals with water damage restoration to ensure every action taken is helpful.

Impact of fast water removal

Removing the water that intrudes into unwanted areas of your property is crucial for the restoration of a water damage incident in West Palm Beach. Speedy water removal has a positive impact because apart from assisting with faster recovery of the loss, it also helps minimize secondary damage and chances of microbial growth. However, fast extraction can sometimes lead to a negative outcome. For example, if the incident floods your basement, fast extraction can destabilize the walls.

The Impact of deodorization

After water intrusion in a structure, deterioration of materials and processes such as microbial growth start, which leads to the development of bad odor. Deodorization can help manage such odors by neutralizing them or masking them with a sweet scent. The deodorization process can be performed in different ways including;

  • Use of time-release beads
  • Fogging
  • Use of activated oxygen
  • Direct Spraying
  • Use of Air Filtration Devices

Each deodorization method works differently. For example, activated oxygen combines with odor molecules, neutralizing them while fogging delivers the deodorizing agent in tiny particles that penetrate deep into materials. Sometimes deodorization can have some unintended consequences. Ozone can react with moisture causing a bleaching action, so it is not ideal for deodorizing wet carpets or upholstery. Our SERVPRO technicians are highly trained in the use of odor control products and procedures, allowing us to choose the most suitable method for your loss site.

Evaluation of each action taken to restore water damage is crucial for a positive outcome. Call SERVPRO of Lake Worth at (561) 588-9777 to help. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
