Restoration After Utility Water Damage

6/23/2018 (Permalink)

This utility area suffered water damage after the equipment failed.

When boilers/hot water heaters blow, it can create quite an unexpected mess through the surrounding areas.  Often, we find that homeowners have accumulated content on the floor, often papers, photos, clothing and toys in cardboard boxes - which get saturated as it wicks in the moisture.

For precious or vital papers that must be saved, SERVPRO has the ability to dry them out through a special freeze-drying technique at one of our out of state facilities. After packaging them up we send them off.  While they may not appear perfect as before, the moisture is completely removed, and the documents can be kept or scanned.  Preventing mold growth through boxes of papers and photos will avoid mold growth down the road.

Ask your local SERVPRO professional about document restoration after water damage!
