We Find And Remove Hidden Water in Your Acworth Home
SERVPRO Extracts Water and Restores and Repairs As Needed
The average homeowner does not have a complete understanding of the many areas water pools within the recesses of a house after leaking or flooding. Failing to evacuate all the water risks secondary water damage, including mold growth and permanent structural damage. Your local SERVPRO detects hidden pockets of water and removes them to ensure occupant health and the integrity of building materials.
Torrential rains broke away gutters and downspouts, saturating your foundation. Water removal from your Acworth home is an absolute necessity as the longer it sits, the more likely interior structures and fixtures deteriorate. Expect mold growth within 48 hours and loss of significant amounts of personal possessions stored in the basement unless our technicians arrive to assess the needs, plan for, and implement water abatement.
Water collects in a broad range of places in your lower level once it begins flowing. Finished areas with gypsum board, paneling, or beadboard all create “containers” into which the water seeps or leaks. Construction that is tight and completed with baseboard trim holds quite a bit of moisture behind the visible walls. SERVPRO locates the water and extracts it using a variety of techniques. Flexible nozzles attached to extractors pull the water out, although we may need to cut access slots. Pulling sections of paneling or beadboard away releases moisture as well, and drilled holes near the floor are effective, too.
Cinder block walls contain two cells per block, perfect for obscuring water. Some egress of moisture may occur without further work as the cement is somewhat porous, but the addition of insulation, wooden supports, and painted or otherwise sealed surfaces limits or prevents the free movement of the water. Holes drilled in the mortar or through the brick itself releases moisture which our extraction equipment then collects.
Some of these methods require rehabilitation after the water is removed. Our SERVPRO team includes repair and construction specialists licensed and certified to complete renovation work after remediating the water damage. Engaging our services means you can rely on us for everything from the initial inspection, including the use of leading edge moisture meters and scanners, to a complete rebuild, with all the finishing touches, if necessary.
