The Necessary Equipment to Restore Your Knoxville Home
Where to Seek Water Damage Restoration for Your Knoxville Home after a Plumbing Leak
Leaking pipes are a major cause of water damage in homes. Water pipes may seem watertight, durable and airtight on the surface, but excessive shock and pressure can ruin them. Construction-related activities can ruin water lines and cause hard-to-control gushes that can flood your home quickly.
When you notice water damage in your Knoxville residence, it is essential to hire professionals who offer water cleanup services immediately to prevent additional damage and accidents. Porous materials like carpets, upholstery, and insulation usually sustain the most significant water damage. Unsealed cement and drywall are the other porous materials, which can degrade because of exposure to water. If these materials are exposed to water for too long, you must replace them.
Shutting off the water source is the first step in the cleanup process. The professionals at SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville can help you restore your property to its pre-water loss condition. We can arrive at your home soon after receiving your call and assess the destruction. Our technicians can then take the right steps to remove any standing water, dry the affected areas, and deodorize your home to eliminate bad odors.
We use high-powered equipment like air movers to dry the wet surfaces. Air movers promote fast drying of surfaces like walls and floors by aiding the circulation of air in the entire indoor space. The air that has touched a saturated material like a carpet has high humidity. Air movers introduce air at the surface level, replacing the highly saturated air with drier air to improve evaporation. We place the appropriate number of air movers on the affected areas to create airflow across the wet surfaces.
Our SERVPRO technicians also use commercial dehumidifiers to eliminate excess moisture from the air, which can contribute to mold growth. Dehumidifiers come in non-ionizing and ionizing models and a range of sizes. We can also use air scrubbers to help restore sanitation and cleanliness in your home by eliminating the musty smells linked to water damage.
