How SERVPRO Helps with Water Restoration

Severe weather is one of the unfortunate realities of living in Florida. As violent as storms can sometimes be, some of the harm that weather events can cause is roof damage that allows water infiltration. Roof leaks and subsequent water damage are a specialty of our restoration team.

Board-Up and Tarping

Before the storm restoration of Plantation attics can get underway, our SERVPRO team must secure the structure and prevent continued damage. We have effective board-up and tarping services to seal over vulnerabilities in the roof and stop more water runoff and moisture penetration to the attic.

Cleaning Up the Water Damage Inside

Clearing attic water damage is the product of many approaches. Unlike traditional drying and moisture management, the added challenge of a confined space makes some of the tools in our inventory unavailable to help. Ultimately, drying is a product of several units:

  • Air Movers – High-velocity blowers blast warm air at wet surfaces to promote rapid evaporative drying. 
  • Dehumidification – Desiccant units exhaust moist air from the attic and regulate humidity for continued drying success.
  • Mold Inhibitors – Antimicrobial products that make wet surfaces uninhabitable to active mold spores looking to colonize hosting materials. 
  • Portable Heaters – Tools that can influence the warmth of the confined space to promote faster drying and chemical processes.

Repairing Your Damaged Roof

We have certified and licensed professionals to perform needed build-back services and repairs for the property. The roof is a complex system that must be constructed from the inside out when repairing. Trusses are evaluated and partially replaced when needed. Plywood and underlayment are removed, and new pieces are reset. Finally, we reinstall damaged surface materials like tin or shingles.

After a storm, water damage can be an unfortunate reality for your property. As leading restoration specialists, we can help with post-storm cleanup and water restoration services. Call SERVPRO of Plantation / Sunrise SE at (954) 710-8544.
