SERVPRO Delivers Water Removal and Drying Service in Salem
Need Emergency Water Removal and Clean-Up in Salem – Call SERVPRO
Many consumers consider water leaks in their Salem homes to not be that big a deal. After all, it is just water, and once the water leak is controlled, they mop up any standing water, assuming the remainder will dry on its own after a few days. Water between hardwood planks, in the carpet under-padding and inside cavities, or under kitchen and bathroom cupboards can cause lots of problems if not properly removed and the materials dried.
SERVPRO provides water removal, clean-up, and drying services in Salem and surrounding areas. We make sure that carpets, under padding, and subfloors are dry. We utilized special hardwood floor drying mats to remove water from between the planks before the wood absorbs the water and begins to swell. We also check all cavities with moisture meters and use specialized vacuums to remove any water before blowing dry air into the cavities to dry them.
Water and high moisture levels can cause a great deal of secondary damage. Mold can begin to colonize in less than 24 hours, creating a strong, musty odor, and mold can cause health effects. Once structures such as hardwood floors and subfloors absorb moisture, they may swell and lose their structural integrity. Hardwood floors, in particular, will buckle, causing warping and cupping. Cupboards made from particle board are particularly susceptible to swelling and loss of integrity.
