Why Professional Water Damage Restoration Makes Sense in Tracy
SERVPRO Technicians Make Sure That Contaminated Water is Properly Removed From Your Home After a Water Damage Incident
Nearly every Tracy homeowner has entry-level experience with mopping up minor spills. After all, water is used daily for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and washing, just to name a few commonplace tasks. Some splashing and dribbling are inevitable and may not need professional intervention. More significant overflows or long-term leaks require the experience and expertise of a professional water restoration company.
Burst pipes and water heaters, toilet and sink overflows, clogged gutters, and incursions through roofs, foundations, and other water damage in Tracy responds best when trained and experienced technicians provide restoration services. Only IICRC certified technicians are equipped to determine the techniques, equipment, and products that safely recover the water damaged structure and contents of your home. Chances are good hiring a restoration company saves you both time and money over the long term as you may discard many items we could restore because the average homeowner lacks the skills and experience.
SERVPRO managers and work crews train extensively to deliver fast and reliable water damage recovery services. The characteristics of the water causing the damage need assessment as soon as possible. Clean water leaves most structural components and possessions wet but usually completely restorable through the use of professional drying equipment and strategies. Gray water contains some contaminants, including soaps, cleansers, food, dirt, and oils or grease. Overflows of appliances like dishwashers or laundry machines are examples of gray water. With proper training and experience, professional restorers can remove gray water and its debris from most items.
Black water is tainted with human and animal waste, corrosive or poisonous chemicals, or other substances hazardous to human health. Toilet backups and clogged sewage lines, as well as runoff from rains or flooding, may be contaminated with feces, bacteria, viruses, or bloodborne pathogens, and are considered black water. Porous articles saturated with black water may not be suitable restorative risks. SERVPRO crew members are certified to make hard decisions about which items and materials must be discarded and which can be sanitized after soaking in black water.
Once the type of water damage is determined, SERVPRO workers swing into action, removing and properly disposing of standing water and then setting drying goals for salvageable items. Speedy drying is crucial, particularly when contaminated water is involved. Microbial growth begins within 48 hours and is amplified if the water is full of organic materials that provide nourishment for mold spores. We use heavy-duty, high-efficiency air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to move water vapor out of structure and contents quickly. Our professional reputation adds support to any claims you make to your insurance carrier, limiting your out of pocket costs when water damage strikes.
Hiring SERVPRO of Tracy for water damage remediation immediately increases your options and the odds of restoring much if not all of your home’s structure and contents. Call (209) 834-0200, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for top-notch professional help.
