Floodwaters can quickly flood a house, bringing water, debris, and potentially harmful chemicals or materials into your Mesa home. Many homeowners are unable to obtain flood insurance because of the cost or because it isn't available. Many people try to clean up their damaged property themselves in order to save money after a flood occurs. However, there are several disadvantages to doing things this way.

SERVPRO has been providing flood damage recovery and restoration in the Mesa area since 2011. We've seen the aftermath and destruction caused by floods. We bring a team of specialists as well as high-capacity equipment to remove water, salvage damaged materials, and disinfect all affected regions. Unsalvageable items are removed, and anything that can be restored is saved. Our equipment is designed to successfully remove moisture and dry your house, including hard-to-reach areas.

How Long Does it Take to Dry My Home?

The amount of time it takes to dry a home out can vary a great deal depending on the damage and flooding that has occurred. Some of the factors that affect the dry out times are the size of the area damaged by the water, how long the water was in place before the dry out was started, and the sort of materials used in the construction of the property. Shop vacs and room fans aren't effective at drying items or structures before mold begins to grow out.

SERVPRO uses high-volume air movers and dehumidifiers to dry the afflicted area completely. The initial incident might be dried in two or three days at a home or workplace. Homeowners who attempted to dry their dwellings before contacting our crew may, however, discover additional water damage as a result of the extended exposure. Wood is porous, which means it can absorb moisture and expand. Moisture may creep into concrete walls, making them take longer to dry. Mold colonies might have emerged as well.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call SERVPRO for help in preventing water damage from permeating walls and building materials.
