Can Ft. Pierce Water Cleanup Save Floor Tiles and Grout?

SERVPRO Technicians’ Water Cleanup Restores Damaged Bathroom and Kitchen Tile

Ceramic tiles are well-known for their reliability and durability, especially in the face of much-needed water cleanup after a disaster. However, extensive water exposure from a plumbing leak, overflow, or appliance failure can create microbial growth in tile grout and impact the structural integrity of floor tiles and other structural materials in a Ft. Pierce home.

SERVPRO performs water cleanup for Ft. Pierce homes that include tile floor restoration and repairs. SERVPRO’s restoration-focused approach minimizes replacement costs for homeowners while returning residences to a clean, pre-disaster condition.

SERVPRO Water Cleanup for Floor Tiles and Grout

In many water damage scenarios, ceramic tiles are rarely impacted by moisture. However, tile grout is porous and prone to water damage, creating moisture that dislodges and damages tiles. Other types of tile, like laminate, may be more cost-effective to replace after moisture and microbes impact tile adhesive and backing.

  • SERVPRO professionals can spot-clean tiles stained by water damage with EPA-registered biocides
  • Technicians measure moisture levels in tile grout and subflooring with penetrating and non-penetrating sensors and meters to ensure that drying goals are met
  • Techs can implement replacement tiles where necessary, as well as replace drywall, baseboards, and other structural materials affected by water

How do SERVPRO Techs Dry Carpets During Water Cleanup of St. Lucie West Homes? 

Carpets are one of the first pieces of content that are affected after a water damaging event. SERVPRO restorers use various techniques to dry wall to wall carpets such as-

  • In-place drying: During this procedure, technicians neither disengage the carpet nor remove the padding. The moisture is removed using carpet wands and deep extraction tools.   
  • Drying the carpet flat: It involves disengaging the carpet and disposing of the wet padding. The carpet is laid on the sub-floor to dry. 
  • Floating the carpet: During this process, technicians may dispose of the wet padding, and airflow is directed underneath the carpet using air movers. The carpet is held in place with special carpet clamps.
