How We Eliminate Signs Of Water Damage In Your Carol Stream Home
Eliminating Telltale Signs Of Water Damage In Carol Stream Is Easy With Professional Help
Incidents such as broken dishwasher hoses, washing machine overflows, or even weather events such as driving rain, forcing water through openings in windows or door can leave you grappling with water loss. Extracting standing water and drying the property deals with most of the problems associated with such incidents. However, telltale signs of the loss can remain, messing the visual appeal of your Carol Stream home, or making it uncomfortable to stay indoors.
Depending on the starting point of the event that leads to water damage in Carol Stream, it can leave discoloration, staining or other patches on different surfaces. Water originating from a higher level such as a leaking plumbing line in the ceiling or a broken appliance such as a washing machine in upper floor rooms can cause discoloration patches on walls and ceilings. The patches form as the water evaporates and leaves sediments or due to chemical action. Our SERVPRO technicians use professional cleaning agents to clean areas with signs of discoloration. We can also repaint or do other refinishing processes to deal with the damage “Like it never even happened.”
It is common for unpleasant smells to develop after water loss incidents. Such smells may not go away unless you take elaborate deodorization steps. Smells can develop due to issues such as mold growth or contaminants aerosolized by the air movements from drying equipment. Our SERVPRO technicians take different steps to rid your property of any traces of bad smell. We use Air Filtration Devices fitted with HEPA filters to remove airborne particles. We also dry all traces of moisture from your property to prevent mold development. We also use specialized equipment such as hydroxyl generators to neutralize bad odors.
If the water runs down the wall cavities, it can affect the insulation. Contact with significant amounts of water affects the "R" value, diminishes the fire resistance and even affects antimicrobial properties of cellulose insulation. You might not notice that your insulation is compromised, but one telltale sign you cannot miss is higher energy bills. Our SERVPRO technicians use penetrating probes to check for wet insulation. We then force air into the wall cavities using special venting equipment to dry excess moisture.
