Wet insulation needs to be properly dried out before mold appears. Should your home face water damage after an incident, contact SERVPRO immediately.

SERVPRO Technicians Have the Experience to Thoroughly Dry Out Your Property After an Incident

Nobody ever plans it, but accidents do happen. Sometimes disasters come in the form of a pipe leaking in your Phoenix townhouse. Whenever a pipe breaks, water gets into your townhome and causes damage.
During this type of situation, it is a possibility that building materials and contents inside your home get negatively affected. Whenever a pipe breaks inside your building, it is wise to call SERVPRO's professional water damage crews in Phoenix.
The first step to mitigating a problem inside your home is to repair the problem at its source. Our crews first make sure that there is not any more water leaking into the structure. Then our specialists assess the damage caused by the leak.
After our team determines all of the areas affected, we extract any water present. After all standing water gets removed, we use specialized equipment to extract more from carpet and hard surface floors. The next step in the mitigation process is the drying procedure.
It is possible in some cases that moisture causes damage to your building's structure. Sometimes building materials such as drywall and insulation get too wet, and removal becomes necessary. In other cases, building materials get dried out back to normal moisture levels.
One building material inside a structure that possibly gets damage when pipes break is insulation. Moisture lessens the insulating power of the insulation inside your walls. At times, water mats the insulation and causes the materials' "R" value to drop.
Some types of insulation like fiberglass easily get dried without ruining its effectiveness. Other types of insulation such as cellulose and Rockwool get destroyed and removing the material becomes mandatory. When drying out walls with fiberglass insulation, our experts at SERVPRO pull your baseboard and drill holes into the drywall behind it so that air can get to the insulation located behind the wall.
When you call experts in to mitigate your problem, it often prevents you from being forced to replace contents and building materials. When dealing with any damage to your home, it is smart to call SERVPRO of Litchfield / West Phoenix at (623) 594-6033 for help 24/7.
