What Can One Expect After Water Damage in a Clearwater Beach Condo?
SERVPRO Can Help Inspect Your Condo Revealing Any Hidden Moisture Damages
Although it might not seem so, determining the outcome of a Condo water leak is challenging. A wide range of damages can develop immediately or later on if the water sits in the property for long. Involving a professional ensures that any negative effects are readily identified and resolved.
The type of water damage in your Clearwater condo may depend on the amount of water spilled or the time it takes to start the restoration. Water leaks originating in unoccupied units can remain unnoticed for some time. Even water leaks that start in occupied units and are identified immediately can spread moisture to other unoccupied units where it can remain unnoticed. SERVPRO has significant experience dealing with water intrusions and thus expects such unique challenges.
Some of the typical issues caused by water include:
- Material deterioration through rusting, rotting, or swelling
- Changes to the aesthetic appeal because stains or patches
- Damaged utilities such as electrical systems
Material deterioration can affect hidden structural elements such as the frames, transforming simple water intrusion into extensive repair works. Luckily, such deterioration takes a long time and can be prevented by focusing on reversing moisture migration.
One simple approach our SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians apply is using thermal cameras to check for moisture within the walls and floors. With such noninvasive resources, it is easier to probe vast sections establishing if the problem spreads from one unit to another even when such units are unoccupied. Tracing moisture migration patterns may also be necessary if there is a need to apportion responsibility to different parties.
