SERVPRO® Helps Overcome Water Buildup

Preparing for water disasters is necessary because they can quickly become overwhelming. Taking immediate action is critical to managing the situation if you are dealing with pooling water or puddling in your home. These conditions can threaten your family's safety, so prompt response is essential. Our team is here to help you manage these immediate threats and keep your home and family safe.

What Makes Standing Water a Concern?

If you have noticed standing water inside your Waco house, it is vital to take immediate action to prevent any future damage or health risks. Threats to your property might include issues like:

  • Absorption

Act quickly if you notice any water pooling on your flooring, especially if you have plank flooring or carpeting. These types of flooring can absorb water quickly and create structural damage or mold growth. Drying up any wet areas as soon as possible is crucial to prevent any issues.

  • Subflooring Damage

When water gets absorbed into the flooring, it can seep down and damage the supporting materials underneath. Over time, this can lead to the need for subflooring repair.

  • Promoting Mold

If you experience water damage to your flooring, thoroughly dry the affected area and monitor it closely for any signs of mold growth. If you notice mold, it's essential to address it promptly to prevent it from spreading.

If you have standing water on your property, you must know that removing it requires different types of tools depending on the severity of the situation. Deep extraction, for example, may require trash pumps and truck-mount machines, while we can address shallow damage with wet vacuums and submersible pumps. After we extract, thorough drying is essential to recover your property entirely. We are with you every step of the way.
