Quickly Repair and Restore a Water Damaged Home with SERVPRO
Proper structural drying and dehumidification is very necessary to prevent warping or rotting of dry walls and flooring in your home after a water damage. If moisture levels are not properly regulated by trained technicians, you will start to have a foul smell and mold will quickly grow in less than 24-48 hours.
Water quickly absorbs into the interior sheet rock, wall insulation and then into wooden studs of building. If interior studs or surfaces are left moist, water and mold can jeopardize the building structure integrity or cause foundational issues.
Fortunately, most water damage is caught in time with proper water extraction cleanup, dehumidify and a minor repair that prevents future structural problems. For water damage related to flooding in your home call SERVPRO of Culver City/Baldwin Hills.
