Three Simple Actions That Ease Water Restoration Efforts

El Centro, CA, is the biggest city in the Imperial Valley, covering 11.86 square miles. It hosts the Naval Air Facility El Centro, where the United States Navy and Marine Corps aviation units train. It has numerous educational institutions, including the Imperial Valley Community College, Wilson Junior High School, Kennedy Middle School, and Sunflower Elementary School. The city holds various annual events, including the California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta, showcasing the region’s agricultural products, livestock, entertainment, and exhibits. Various parks like Farmers Park and Legacy Park are convenient recreational areas within the city.

After a mishap involving water, fast-tracking water damage restoration in your El Centro property is one of the best steps you can take because it limits the deterioration that follows such incidents. For example, structural wood may swell or rot after moisture exposure. Odors and inconveniences such as discoloration stains are also common. SERVPRO® helps expedite such restoration, whether the incident is major or limited to a few sections of your property.

Simple steps that quicken the restoration

  • Fast water extraction
  • Temperature regulation
  • Humidity regulation

Restoring water damage is not just fixing the things ruined by the moisture exposure. Proactively preventing some changes from happening is also part of the process. Since water spreads through gravity-aided flow, wicking through materials and evaporation into the air where hygroscopic materials absorb it, faster water extraction halts the problems from developing, thus saving time. SERVPRO is well-placed to facilitate such extraction since our crews have powerful truck-mounted extractors, portable extractors, and dry/wet vacuums, responding appropriately to any level of stagnation.

Reversing the changes triggered by water exposure is another essential water damage restoration step. For example, the swelling in wooden floorboards or structural framing is only a preliminary effect. Over time, the wood may warp, necessitating replacement. Better drying approaches can reverse the swelling, saving the material. Our SERVPRO crews better control the drying process by establishing humidity and temperature control.

Essential equipment for temperature and humidity control

The standing water and wet materials supply a steady source of humidity from constant evaporation. Our crews set up dehumidifiers around the property to maintain relative humidity below 60%.
