It is the work of our SERVPRO technicians to turn off the gas and the electricity in your home. We also check for signs of sagging ceilings. We understand that wet wallboard or plaster is heavy and can cause accidents when it falls, so, we have to remove them when we are restoring your property. We also check for some furniture such as cabinets may also fall over. Removing pictures and mirrors from walls may also be necessary since they may fail to stay in position when the plaster is wet.
If there's standing water in the building, we have to use portable or truck-mounted extractors to remove it. The use of submersible pumps is also an option – though, we make use there are no sediments in the water to be pumped out using this technique. We are careful not to open swollen doors or windows forcefully. Breaking glass is not an option, we take out the molding and then remove the window sash from its position.

Spring is on its way and with the change of season comes excessive rain. Sometimes when it rains a lot in a short amount of time, water can get into your Dayton home. Even if the rain is not bad enough to flood the area, sometimes water from the outside still makes it into a room in your home.
Sometimes with old doors, seals do not seal correctly at the bottom of the door. If water leaks into your mudroom from your back door, SERVPRO's flood damage specialists in Dayton are always available to help you. At times, water damage that does not seem excessive gets overlooked.
If water makes its way into your mudroom, it is possible for it to cause more damage to your home than you think. Water can ruin your flooring material or walls. If not efficiently mitigated, water damaging other rooms is possible.
Anytime water from a rainstorm leaks into your home, it is a good idea to get the professionals at SERVPRO to help. As soon as we get a call, our team arrives at your house and begins to fix the water damage problem. The first step is to remove any furniture or objects that may get ruined when wet. The next step is to remove any standing water with extraction equipment. After all of the standing water is gone the walls and flooring materials get inspected and tested for moisture.
In some cases, rainwater seeping into your home damages your flooring and drywall. If this is the case, then the ruined material gets stripped out, and the rest of the building materials get dried. In other cases, drying the room that water got into is all that is needed. When drying, our IICRC certified restoration crews use sophisticated air movers and dehumidifiers to make sure that moisture levels are low enough so that mold cannot grow in the wet area.
