Storm Damage After the Flood.  Water Damage Vapor in Your Vail Home After the water recedes, water vapor remains and spreads through your home.

Reducing Humidity to Normal Levels after Flood Damage in Vail

Every aspect of your home's interior becomes altered after an event involving water. Flooding in Vail creates a drastic change in the environment. The materials inside your residence also suffer tremendously and can become so unsafe that entering becomes highly risky.  

Having an expert to guide you through the process of reclaiming your flood-damaged Vail property can prove invaluable in the reduction of expenses while saving you from wasting unnecessary time and having increased aggravation. SERVPRO technicians hold certificates from the IICRC, assuring you of their expertise, thoroughness, and dedication.  

Our teams work hard to make sure that your home is brought back to satisfactory condition, “Like it never even happened.” The effects of a significant portion of the work we do are never seen but rather felt. The increased amount of water vapor left in the air after flooding permeates an entire home. Traveling on air currents already present in your house allows water molecules to end up everywhere.  

Once in other areas of your home, these misplaced molecules of water can begin to do damage that the initial flooding was unable to do. They do this by settling on cooler surfaces and congregating together. This condensation of moisture can lead to problems with microbial populations spiking, destruction of finishes on photographs, and a sticky feeling everywhere, including your skin.  

We use air movers to dry out the air, directing it outdoors. Other areas that we find more challenging to do this in receive extra help from one of our dehumidifiers or desiccant machines. We also use air scrubbers to trap any particles or microbes present in the air. When exposed to moisture, microorganisms become activated, even while still suspended in the air, leaving them completely ready to set up a colony as soon as they settle on a surface. Bringing the humidity level back down to normal and acceptable levels prevents all of this from happening.  

SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley remediates physical flood damage and also prevents additional problems by eliminating excessive water vapor from Green Valley, Littleton, and Continental properties. Our number, (520) 648-7360, is always available to residents needing help with this disaster type and many others that cause damage to homes. Call us when you need expert help in getting your home back to livable condition.
