SERVPRO Prioritizes Water Damage Repairs Immediately a Moisture Problem is Identified

Most people think of water damage as the sudden release of water into unintended areas of a home. However, materials can gradually deteriorate if there is a hidden leak or other unidentified moisture problem in the house. Whatever form the loss in your San Leandro home takes, you should start remedial action in time.

The discovery time of the intrusion determines the steps you need to take for successful water damage restoration at your San Leandro home. For burst water pipes or other sudden water releases, it is possible to resolve the issue by extracting standing water and drying wet materials if the response is timely. However, if a small leak remains hidden for a long time, restoration involves several other processes.

Experienced professionals readily adapt when delivering:

Several factors can help shed light on whether the intervention process is timely. For instance, the presence of mold shows that the moisture exposure is at least 48 hours old. If there are significant mold colonies, the moisture exposure is at least a couple of weeks old.

Other things that could help shed light on the period of moisture exposure include:

  • Warping of solid wood materials
  • Rusting of metal items such as furniture or fittings
  • Crumbling of drywall or composite materials
  • Development of foul odors
