How does water harm a property?

Water spots or damp pockets may seem benign, but they can cause significant damage to your Bainbridge Island home without correct intervention. Water can enter the property after a period of heavy rainfall or as the result of a plumbing leak. Equally, temperature changes can lead to condensation inside the wall or ceiling cavities. Often these small regions of the home can spread outwards, causing unpleasant odors, weakening the structure, and staining paintwork or decor. What may appear as a surface issue could be a symptom of waterlogging inside wall cavities. These situations may worsen over time as microbial bacteria or fungi settle on wet areas of the home and proliferate rapidly. SERVPRO technicians can examine the area thoroughly to ensure that the necessary action is taken in time.

How can I find the extent of water intrusion?

Before conducting water mitigation in your Bainbridge Island Home, SERVPRO technicians use a range of measuring and detection equipment. This equipment may include thermal imaging cameras, boroscopes, meters, and sensors. During this scoping phase of water mitigation, our technicians are looking for any sign of migration as well as cavity damage. These measurements are essential to ensuring that our services are thorough and that your home does not suffer from secondary losses further down the line. While performing an inspection, our technicians enter findings into a digital inventory which can be passed onto your insurer at the end of service for a stress-free claim.

What special equipment is used for water mitigation?

    •    Drying mats or pads may be necessary for properties with hardwood floors and tiles
    •    Injectidry systems to ventilate wall cavities without causing significant harm to the wall
    •    Desiccant dehumidification to reduce the moisture content of solid, semi-porous materials
