Dealing with water damage is a complex issue with many facets that add to the success of clean up, restoration and long term damage, or lack of, for your property. After the damage is done, the most crucial step of recovering quickly and without issue, is dry out.

Drying an area out thoroughly, often poses the difference between a complete restoration, and long term structural issues caused by liquid damage. Water seeps into porous materials, allowing it to penetrate well beyond what you would expect. This means, in a flood situation, water can easily infiltrate substructures such as base boards and drywalls, and even support beams.

SERVPRO Kaufman County & Cedar Creek's certified water mitigation specialists have the necessary equipment and experience to test surfaces to determine the true depth of water penetration, then create a comprehensive dry out plan that ensures each area is all dry, all the way through.

Simply opening windows or adding a fan or dehumidifier is often not enough, and will not ensure total dry out. If you are affected by water damage, calling SERVPRO Kaufman County & Cedar Creek will ensure the job is done as quickly as possible, and done right.
