It can rain inside your home

When you have a water loss in your home, and you do not properly address it, there is potential you can create a perfect scenario where it rains inside your home. This is actually not rain, but it is condensation forming from the saturated air in your home. When you introduce large of amounts of moisture into your home and you do not allow that moisture to equalize by removing the access humidity. It is possible for the air in your home to reach condensation, or its dew point. The experts at SERVPRO® of Greater Waco are certified in thermodynamics and the characteristics of water. We will address the loss in your home appropriately as to ensure that it does not rain in your home. The photo above is an example of a Waco home that did not properly address the initial loss; which created a secondary loss resulting in more thing in the home getting saturated with water.

Hardwood Floors under Sheet Vinyl

Unfortunately, this home in Bellmead suffered a crawlspace pipe break. By the time the issue was discovered and repaired almost two weeks hag gone by making this loss a Category 3 situation. Our Crews had to wear full Personal Protective Gear (PPE) throughout the job. The Vinyl floor that had been installed in the home by its previous owners covered up some beautiful 1950s ear oak hardwoods. The vinyl, which is a moisture barrier, trapped the water below itself and ensured the hardwood floors were completely saturated and had to removed due to length they had been saturated. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco removed the saturated Category 3 materials and completed the dry out in the home, leaving it ready for the customer to begin the build back phase.

When carpet padding is removed.

This is a photo from a home that had a sink overflow while the owners were out of town. They came home to about an inch of water in their home. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco was able to extract and clean the carpets however, the padding under the carpet had to be removed. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco technicians were able to keep all the furniture in the room while they removed the pad by manipulating it around the room as needed.

Water "just on the floor" can affect your walls too

Even though this home only had an inch or so of water on the floor, the natural cedar walls sucked up, wicked, the water almost 8 inches in places. The longer water is allowed to sit on the floor, the greater the probability more damage is occurring. While wood walls are easy to see when they are wet; water in typical sheetrock walls with trim and paint is not so easily seen. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco has the appropriate tools to survey your home to see just how wet all your surfaces are.

Crawlspace Flood in the Heart of Waco

SERVPRO® of Greater Waco's technicians were called out to mitigate this crawlspace flood in Waco.  We had to extract water from beneath the house before we could address the subfloor below and the wood floors that suffered a water damage on the main floor of the home.  SERVPRO® of Greater Waco responded quickly to this crawlspace pipe leak.

Containment can reduce costs

SERVPRO® of Greater Waco placed containment on this bar area in a room where we removed several walls and the ceiling. The containment protected an expensive collection of libations, and saved the insurance company funds by eliminating the need to have that area cleaned of sheetrock dust
