Extensive Evaluation Helps SERVPRO Identify the Type of Damage before Starting Water Removal Services

It is easy to expect the outcomes of water leaks to be similar. For example, if a friend is dealing with a burst pipe efficiently at home, you can expect the same ease when the same problem affects your Agoura home. However, water damage varies in many ways, and you might be surprised when restoring your property proves challenging.

The type of water damage repair your Agoura home needs may vary even if the water released is equivalent to what affected another property. The kind of materials exposed to the heightened moisture levels and the duration of exposure play a role in determining the outcome. A quick response such as the one mounted by SERVPRO can limit the outcome to primary damages only. 

Dealing with direct damage is easier since it only requires:

  • Water clean up
  • Water removal services
  • Water damage remediation

Issues classified as primary water damage include 

If primary damages are not addressed in time, the issue progresses to secondary damages like crumbling of ceiling tiles or drywall, wallpaper softening and falling off, and in many cases, mold growth on various surfaces and cavities. 

Although our SERVPRO teams can help resolve both primary and secondary damages, we prefer preventing the secondary issues. An essential tool for such prevention is resolving the problems that arise speedily. For instance, expediting water removal using power extraction equipment and timely moisture management by setting up dehumidifiers prevents many issues, including mold growth.
