Don’t Let A Renovation Cause Significant Damage To Your Dayton Home
A Miscalculation During A Renovation Can Lead To Costly Delays And Water Damage In Dayton
Measuring and cutting away sections of the walls in a Dayton residence during renovations must happen for improvements to take place. Using tools comes with risks, so being careful helps prevent accidents. Miscalculating where pipes rest inside a wall can lead to nicking one and letting water escape.
A cut pipe can release hundreds of gallons of water, resulting in immediate water damage inside your Dayton home to materials that otherwise would not require removal for a planned renovation. Because most contractors do not carry the necessary detection devices, they cannot track down the true extent of the water. When disasters like this happen during home improvement projects, you need professionals like the ones at SERVPRO.
Our water damage mitigation team always brings the tools needed to locate and measure the lost water inside your home. We are not only Faster to Any Size Disaster, but we also perform the needed mitigation quickly, so your project can get restarted and finish with little change to your original schedule. Renovations to the home already bring inconvenience and cordoned off areas that your family must avoid – unexpected delays can also interfere with vacation time and other family activities.
We do more than look for waterlogged materials in your home. We use both infrared cameras to locate damp materials and to determine the amount of moisture penetrating those materials. We test those areas with moisture meters. We keep records of the moisture content, starting with the initial readings.
As our drying machines and other methods decrease the moisture affecting the area, we continue noting the percentage of moisture. We also check for the visible signs of water damage elsewhere, in adjacent areas, inside cabinets, and under large appliances, and underneath the area, if possible.
When we finish, we take final readings to ensure that the area no longer contains any damaging moisture that might cause future water damage. We only consider our work done and the area suitable for continuing the renovation work when moisture content levels reach expected amounts, and our customer is satisfied with the outcome.
