Water Damage Repair And Restoration In Tucson
Tucson weather is a constant source of sunshine for most of the year. It’s part of what makes it a great home for the local Air Force Base and why flooding is not a problem for homeowners. It does not stop pipes from breaking or appliances from failing, however.
Most Tucson water damage comes such incidents. While most involve small amounts of water, SERVPRO response teams know even that can cause much damage if it is left to dry on its own.
Water can soak quickly into a property like drywall and furniture. In the case of drywall panels, once they absorb enough, the material begins to crack and crumble in place. The results can leave a room with exposed wall framing along the floor. If the leak was from a pipe running overhead to a bathroom sink, the water could strip a room of all drywall completely.
That is why SERVPRO trains team members as Water Damage Restoration Technicians or WDRTs. That includes replacement of affected property like drywall and making minor repairs of plumbing problems like tightening loose joints and replacing small items like a cracked tailpiece or a rusted out trap in a bathroom or kitchen sink.
Training also includes the restoration of items like furniture. WDRTs remove affected items from the area with water and place it on blocks or pallets. That allows items to dry without dripping onto carpets or wood floors, possibly staining them with the paint or varnish softened by being underwater. If there is a carpet stain, team members use a commercial-grade shampooer and a cleaning agent designed to remove finishes without harming the carpet fibers.
If needed, technicians set-up fans to carefully increase air circulation and speed up drying. The gentle movement forces water out of the furniture and into the air where it evaporates naturally. If the humidity level inside the home is higher than normal, WDRTs can increase evaporation by installing a dehumidifier to lower it.
