The Biggest Factors in Helping a Damaged Home. 

Restoration and cleanup are not a one-size-fits-all solution for your home. Our professionals
must thoroughly inspect the situation to determine the best cleanup and recovery solutions possible. Did you know that moisture can impact a property in dozens of ways that threaten it strength, stability, and appearance? We understand the importance of regulating humidity and water migration to prevent more significant structural decay and deterioration.The processes necessary for cleaning up after water disasters can be split into three categories:

? Surface Water
? Trapped Water
? Airborne Moisture

Surface Water Woes
When dealing with water damage in Lafayette properties, the experts at SERVPRO® make sure
to eliminate standing water using advanced equipment. While this process removes most of the moisture, some remnants may still be present, which require wet vacuums, mops, and towels. Specialists also employ tools like carpet wands to ensure water does not seep into the
subflooring. This approach guarantees that all water damage is thoroughly addressed and that the affected area remains clean and dry.

Trapped Water in Structural Elements
Detecting and eliminating water damage can prove to be a challenging task. To ensure a
thorough job, we utilize state-of-the-art moisture meters and detection devices to locate any
damp pockets that may have gone unnoticed. Furthermore, we employ air movers to facilitate the
drying process of affected materials. In some situations, removing any wet building materials
may be more advantageous. In such cases, we collaborate with you to determine the most
optimal course of action.

Relative Humidity
Sophisticated moisture detection devices and sensors track changing environmental conditions
because gauging potentially adverse conditions for your home solely based on feeling a thick,
moist environment is not always the best method. Hygrometers can take measurements of
environmental moisture, which is calculated as a percentage known as relative humidity.

Each type of moisture and water damage plays a part in the speed and efficiency of our recovery
steps. Our educated experts understand the behavior of water and the best restoration practices to
help. Call us today at (765) 420-0077.
