SERVPRO has the Know How to Remediate Water Damage in West Palm Beach 

Whether your West Palm Beach home suffers from a sudden plumbing emergency or the long-term effects of an unnoticed slow leak fast and expert help delivers a superior result. Although it might seem like the harm from a smaller leak is easily managed with do-it-yourself efforts, the reality is any water loss needs assessment and then mitigation by trained disaster restoration technicians. Our team is reliable, insightful, and an industry leader.  

Water damage inflicts far-reaching effects on your West Palm Beach abode. With a water emergency, the visible issues are often just a glimpse of a much more severe and progressively destructive problem. Professional evaluation, project planning, and implementation of the tasks required can restore and preserve the integrity and comfort of your home.  

When the SERVPRO team arrives, an experienced project manager inspects the scene. We map out the extent of the water damage, which frequently involves using advanced technology like thermal scanning. Trapped water under cabinets or behind walls can complicate what seems like minor damage from a loose connection or cracked pipe or hose. More major flooding, such as that from a broken water heater, also migrates into cracks and crevices. Our professionals know how to locate all the excess moisture to ensure our efforts completely solve the problem. 

Standing water more in-depth than a couple of inches removes quickly with our submersible pumps. Wanded extractors take over, more efficient at pulling moisture spread over vast expanses and joints between floors and walls. SERVPRO service vehicles carry these tools as well as more specialized equipment like floor mats utilizing a negative pressure system to suction water up from several layers of hardwood and subflooring.  

Our IICRC-trained technicians take moisture measurements of the building materials affected to inform our determination of drying goals. After removing the liquid, the SERVPRO green trucks provide air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers. They assist in pulling moisture out of porous structural components into the air as vapor and then condensing or absorbing the vapor for removal.  

Making it, “Like it never even happened,” demands precise moisture measurement, skilled water cleanup, and thorough structural drying courtesy of the professionals at SERVPRO of Lake Worth. Schedule an assessment by calling us 24/7 at (561) 588-9777.
