SERVPRO Can Save You Time and Money After Flood Damage to Your St. Lucie West Home

Flood damage can wreak havoc at your St. Lucie West home. It pays to hire local restorers like SERVPRO who have experience in dealing with such events. Our IICRC certified technicians are just a call away; We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Restoration after flood damage to your St. Lucie West home begins by SERVPRO technicians eliminating any standing water on the property using equipment such as extractors and pumps. Once the standing water is removed, the next important step in water damage restoration is to dry the structure and contents as fast as possible. SERVPRO techs use several methods to achieve this. Establishing a drying system is usually the first step in restoring the moisture content to a preloss state.

Different Drying Systems That SERVPRO Uses During Water Cleanup From Your St. Lucie West Home

An effective drying system must dehumidify the air in the affected area of your St. Lucie West home. As the structure and contents dry, the moisture is picked up by the air, and it becomes saturated with water vapor, consequently slowing the drying process. SERVPRO technicians usually use two systems to dehumidify this moist air-

  • An open system- Works by exchanging moist indoor air with dry outdoor air to speed up the drying process during water damage repairs. It is effective only under certain weather conditions.
  • A closed system- Closes off the affected area from outside air, and dehumidifiers and air movers are used to remove the moisture from the air.

Our team caps the service with an application of a antimicrobial agent since flood water is considered Black Water, possibly contaminated with sewage, vegetation, muck, creek overflows, and pathogens.
