Monroe Homes and Fast SERVPRO Water Damage Mitigation

You might be able to think of multiple issues that could affect your Monroe home, but one of the most common threats that homeowners face is the possibility of a water emergency. The real trouble with this possibility is that it can come from several sources and impact your house in disastrous ways. 

Aging appliances are a typical culprit for water damage to your Monroe residence. While you might diligently service your appliances to work as well as they can, aging machines run a risk of breaking down and malfunctioning. When an appliance like a washing machine or your water heater breaks in a specific way, it can allow water to pass through unabated and overflow onto the floor in this region of your home. 

Until you recognize the problem and successfully shut down the appropriate valve to stop water flow to the appliance, high volumes can potentially pass through and find their way to the floors of your home. Our SERVPRO team can work quickly to assess the scope of the damage you face and make a tailored restoration plan specific to the needs of the current situation. 

Water Removal Services

With appliance failures, extraction is often a typical first step of the restoration process. Utilizing both portable pumps and wet-vacs with extraction wands, our SERVPRO technicians can remove virtually all of the pooled water on the floors of the affected areas of your home. Drying is a critical component to restoring the damage. This process utilizes large air movers, dehumidification equipment, and specialty tools like drying mats to penetrate below the flooring to ensure the area is thoroughly dry. 

While our SERVPRO professionals work to preserve the flooring of your home, sometimes the water has damaged this material too much for salvaging. In these cases, we remove the irreparably damaged portions of flooring and prepare the area to reinstall new materials. 

You cannot always account for when a water-fed appliance has aged enough to break down. Fortunately, with SERVPRO of Monroe / West Monroe, you do not have to contend with the resulting water damage on your own. Call anytime 24/7 you need us at (318) 345-5121.
