Danger Can Be Lurking
Have you heard the expression, “What you can’t see can’t hurt you?" This might be a true statement when it comes to a children’s story or a fairytale, but not so with water damage to your home or business.
The smallest water intrusion into your space may result in serious water damage and more importantly, a health hazard to your family or employees. Indoor air quality can be affected over time and symptoms from headaches to irritated eyes to allergies may occur. If you see signs of water damage, call a professional to investigate it as soon as possible.
Be proactive in protecting your home, business and family. Do you notice the following?
- A damp spot on your ceiling or drywall?
- A new smell that cannot be explained?
- Excessive utility bill after a weather event?
- An unexplained damp or soft spot in your flooring?
- Complaints of allergy symptoms?
Any one or more of these may be a sign of a water event in your space. Avoid the high costs of a future large restoration by addressing the problem sooner rather than later. The SERVPRO difference in Lynchburg, Bedford County and Campbell County is the use of the right water detection tools:
Moisture Sensor-Used to detect moisture in carpets, baseboards and walls.
Moisture Meter-Used to determine the actual moisture contact of various materials. This also is the equipment that allows us to monitor the drying process.
Thermohygrometer-Used to measure temperature and relative humidity to calculate and create an environment most conductive to drying. When handling a contaminated loss (CAT 2 or 3), it is not only important to dry the structure, but to disinfect and often deodorize as well.
Ultra-Low-Volume (ULV ) Fogger-Used to atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that can easily penetrate the site where odor-causing residues may accumulate. It can also inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other hard- to-reach areas that typical residential products and methods cannot reach.
Thermal Fogger-Used to dispense solvent- based products by creating a dense fog that consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that attach to and neutralize odor causing bacteria.
Early detection and treatment of water damage is the key to promoting a healthy living space and getting your domain back.
