Flood Damage to Your Home in St. Lucie West? Call in the SERVPRO Experts

SERVPRO Helps to Minimize Long-Term Damage to St. Lucie Homes After Flooding

Flood damage to your home in St. Lucie West can result in waterlogging on your property. The longer this water stays in contact with the structure and contents, the more damage it can cause. Hence, removing this water is the priority of SERVPRO technicians when they arrive for water damage restoration. 

Once SERVPRO techs remove the standing water after flood damage to your St. Lucie home, the next step is to get the structure and contents dry as quickly as possible. Even when the standing water is removed, the surfaces that were once in contact with water can still hold a lot of water. How quickly this water can be removed by SERVPRO techs during water damage remediation depends on how and where the water is bound to the surface. 

Forms of Moisture That SERVPRO Techs Encounter During Water Cleanup from St. Lucie West Homes 

SERVPRO technicians identify three forms of moisture during water damage repairs in St. Lucie West-

  • Surface water: It is the standing water that SERVPRO techs encounter after a flooding incident on your property. Pumps and extractors can remove this type of water easily.    
  • Free water: As the surface water stays in contact with the surfaces, some of it might find its way into the material through pores and cavities in the form of free water. It is slower to evaporate than surface water; SERVPRO techs can remove it by manipulating humidity and temperature.  
  • Bound water: It is the water that is chemically bound within the structure of the material. It is slowest to evaporate and needs heating the material to remove.
