Water Damage How Your Home Might Suffer from Water Damage in Daytona Beach Water damage can cause furniture to become musty-smelling or lose its varnish or other finishes.

Rely on SERVPRO if You Experience Water Damage in Your Home

Although we need water to sustain ourselves and keep us healthy, when it ends up in unexpected places in a Daytona Beach residence, it can create some unexpected changes when it comes into contact with materials inside your home. Some materials show the damage they suffer almost immediately, but others hide the problem more easily.

When your Daytona Beach home suffers from water damage, it can come from any source and affect any material. Sometimes water comes from within your home because of a forgotten tub or a broken ice water line, while other times, storms create problems, instead. The friendly professionals at SERVPRO have experience in jobs of all sizes and can help you restore your home.

Floors. Your home's floors sustain the most damage when a water pipe breaks and water comes spraying out under high pressure. Absorbing a great deal of this as water sits on top, floorboards can swell and crack, and the glue in carpet padding can disintegrate, causing a horrific mess. At SERVPRO, we restore floors for our customers using methods based on their specific needs. When called immediately after the incident, we can often save carpeting by elevating the carpet so we can force air underneath. We also use forced heat and extraction units mounted on special drying mats to rescue hardwood floors.

Holes in your home's roof. Both pests and damage from tree limbs can create openings in your roof where rainfall can enter. Insulation in the area can become sodden with moisture and then compressed, significantly decreasing its R-factor. Even if pests did not exist in the area before the damage, because of the presence of water and the availability of bedding for their young, many types of vermin might find a home's upper portion very inviting. We can get such ruined insulation cleaned up and temporarily patched up until roofing specialists complete the needed repairs.

Walls, inside and out. When walls absorb water, unique wall coverings like stucco, textured spackling, or cork can begin falling apart. Whenever we encounter such surfaces, we use machinery that increases airflow and heat the air, which can help save the interior walls in a home. At times, small openings help circulate air in and through the interior spaces of walls, drying them out from the inside, also.

Furniture can also suffer damage. Increased moisture inside a home from any source can affect your furniture. Upholstered furniture can become musty-smelling or exhibit signs of losing its varnish or other finish on the wooden components. Deep-cleaning these items can help restore them, but when pressing problems exist, our Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning Technician (UFT) provides furnishings with the care they need.
