SERVPRO Knows You Cannot Count on Simplicity During Any Water Damage Repair in Naples -- We Have the Technology Needed to Detect and Manage Surprises

The disruption caused by water damage can pose a real inconvenience for homeowners in Naples. We understand that you desire a quick assessment and a fast repair turnaround. At the same time, we know that if we skip fundamental water and moisture detection and metering before planning and completing a project, we risk leaving your home incompletely restored, with the potential for long-term and incredibly destructive damage.

What Is the Purpose of Pre-Project Planning Testing?

Water damage repair in your Naples home involves the fluids you see and the fluids migrating away from the initial leak, overflow, or spill. Standing water can disappear quickly, leading to the erroneous belief that the crisis has passed. Professional restoration technicians receive robust training in finding the pathways where water flowed away and perhaps pooled and collected in building cavities. Permeable building materials also quietly absorb the water, putting in motion progressive deterioration, which is often not apparent in the early stages. Finding and removing the water and drying out wet materials is crucial to repairing your home after a loss.

How Do Water Repair Experts Locate and Remove Hidden Liquids and Absorbed Moisture?

SERVPRO crews use sensitive devices to find water. We also measure the moisture levels to provide data vital to determining and monitoring progress toward research-based drying goals. The tools employed include:

Infrared imaging cameras
Recording temperature fluctuations that when read by trained technicians indicate the location of trapped liquid water and significantly wet structural components.

Moisture detectors
Find and map the presence of moisture through repeated testing.

Moisture meters
Measure the levels of moisture absorbed by permeable materials, and also permit for monitoring of drying process through periodic remeasuring

Water removal techniques can include planned controlled demolition to release water and open up wet cavities. We remove the lower sections of wet drywall as “flood cuts,” and cut, punch, or drill holes in other materials to drain water.

Our construction division follows mitigation and remediation efforts with water damage repair and rebuilding to make it “Like it never even happened,” completing the restoration cycle. Reach SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island 24/7 at (239) 302-5700.
