SERVPRO Closely Monitors Water Restoration in Clearwater

Water leaks significantly impact businesses, so taking immediate action is essential when your Clearwater facility is affected. However, if your effort is haphazard, you might worsen the problems or create new ones. Professional assistance can help ensure water cleanup achieves the intended goals.

Proper planning before starting water cleanup processes for Clearwater Beach businesses premises helps ensure better control of the factors that might create problems later on. Extensive deterioration of materials from moisture exposure and personal injuries are some of the undesirable outcomes that you can prevent. SERVPRO also seeks to fulfill other goals, such as limiting restoration costs.

Crucial factors to control

  • Hazardous incidents 
  • Humidity 
  • Microbial growth

Various hazards can develop when water accumulates on a property or during cleaning. The main risk is slick surfaces because of the wetness and cleaning products. Another problem is the cables and hoses connected to the water extractors, dehumidifiers, and other restoration equipment. Our SERVPRO technicians set up warning signs and group the wires and hoses using zip ties, thus limiting slip and trip hazards.

The Dangers of Humidity

While your focus during cleanup may be on the wet materials, there is another aspect of moisture that you should pay attention to; otherwise, it can lead to problems. The humidity that escapes into the air though invisible can be problematic. One problem from humidity is condensation which can transfer wetness from the affected sections of the house to other unaffected areas. Humid air also slows down the drying processes necessary for finishing the cleanup, creating room for unfettered microbial growth and mold development.

Actions necessary for managing humidity

  • Boosting air circulation with air movers  
  • Controlling humidity using dehumidifiers
  • Temperature control with portable heaters
