Drying out a damp basement

Why SERVPRO Drying out a damp basement Moisture levels are monitored frequently during the drying process.

If you have moisture in your basement, it can be a real headache for any homeowner. It is important to treat and dry any wet areas properly to prevent potential contamination and/or mold.  
 
One important aspect of our work is helping restore air quality in your home. We use air scrubbers and negative air machines to clean the air in your house and reduce the presence of spores. Air scrubbers are portable filtration systems that play a vital role in improving air quality. The scrubbers draw air through a series of powerful HEPA filters that trap mold spores as small as 0.3 microns and remove them from the air. The result is cleaner air with less fungal spores in it. 
 
SERVPRO technicians oversee the drying out of your home or contaminated rooms after any mold remediation. Getting your home and belongings dry to their normal level of moisture content is vital. Our experts have dehumidifiers on hand to bring down the humidity in the air, and air movers for drying out specific areas.
 
Do not struggle with trying to deal with a moisture problem or a mold outbreak. Call SERVPRO of LaGrange/Burr Ridge/Hinsdale at (630) 920-9334 today for assistance.

Why SERVPRO Why calling an expert is important after water damage occurs Call the SERVPRO experts. We're ready to help!

Why is calling a certified professional necessary after water damage? 

Homeowners know that moisture is often the enemy, capable of penetrating into just about any space, and taking advantage of every little crack and structural problem. No matter how moisture gets into a building or home, the response should be the same. Bring in SERVPRO of LaGrange/Burr Ridge/Hinsdale as soon as possible to clean the home, dry it, and ensure there are no lingering health threats once the moisture is gone.

If water has entered the home through a contaminated source, don’t try to handle it on your own. Floods and sewage backflows contain a variety of deadly bacteria, viruses and fungi, and even momentary skin contact can leave a person seriously ill. A certified water damage restoration service like SERVPRO of LaGrange/Burr Ridge/Hinsdale not only has the tools to eliminate the moisture, we have the protective equipment to remain free from harm.

Our restoration technicians have technology that makes a difference. These include powerful vacuums and pumping systems, high volume air movers, dehumidifiers, heat injectors, moisture meters, and a number of detergents formulated for destroying fungi and other microbial threats. While our technicians work on the damaged area, disposing of compromised materials, and drying the rest, they will also destroy all mold and microbial colonies. This is the only way to ensure a home is safe to live in, and a business safe to work in; any other cleaning method is a dangerous gamble.

SERVPRO of LaGrange/Burr Ridge/Hinsdale utilizes advanced equipment and technology to quicken the restoration time and to minimize cost. We proudly serve our community and surrounding areas with 24/7 emergency availability. Give us a call today! (630) 920-9334.
