Water Damage Prevention Tips for Ft. Lauderdale
Did you know that the longer you wait to repair water damage the more expensive the repair becomes? Even waiting one week can increase the cost dramatically. SERVPRO® of Ft. Lauderdale North wants commercial and residential property owners in Sea Ranch Lakes to know that our team of highly trained technicians will respond to your emergency quickly for any size water loss and will begin the extraction process quickly to begin the mitigation process. Once the water is removed, equipment will be placed in the damaged area so building materials can dry as quickly as possible. Here are some tips from the American Red Cross until help arrives:
- From wallboards to rugs, items that are not thoroughly dried can sprout mold and mildew
- Bring all soft items (such as sofas, clothing, bedding, and throw rugs) outside if possible – sunlight and wind will help them dry faster
- Throw out items that have absorbed water and cannot be cleaned or disinfected. This includes mattresses, carpeting, cosmetics, stuffed animals and baby toys.
- Keep the windows open and run fans – or keep them shut and run dehumidifiers – to pull moisture out of wood floors and subfloors, beams, doors, etc.
