Water Damage St. Petersburg – Minimizing Water Impacts

Water causes millions of dollars in damage to homes every year. There are frequent leaks in the plumbing, overflowing bathtubs, malfunctioning dishwashers and washing machines, and many more too numerous to mention. The water spreads from the source, and if the cause is not contained quickly, water can spread to every area of the home. There are steps the average homeowner can take to mitigate the damage until help arrives.

SERVPRO provides water damage mitigation and restoration services in St. Petersburg and surrounding areas, including the fishing communities in the area. We train our teams to follow IICRC certified water mitigation and removal techniques to minimize the damage to your home. We aim to remove all moisture and dry your home to avoid potential mold infestations that can affect your health as well as the structure of your home.

What Can You Do to Minimize the Impact of Water in Your Home?

After shutting off the valve to the central water intake to your home and calling SERVPRO for help, there are several things that homeowners can consider to minimize the damage. First and foremost, make sure that it is safe to enter the area. There is no need to make a bad situation worse by slipping and falling or being shocked by an exposed electrical connection that has been immersed in water.

Also, colorful items such as cushions and magazines can leach colored inks and dyes onto surfaces. If possible, remove or prop all wet items away from wet carpeting and furniture. Lift furniture legs and place aluminum foil under the legs. High humidity can damage decorative items such as paintings and other valuable items. Remove these items to another area where there are lower humidity levels. Turn on the AC, if possible. The AC system can also help to lower humidity levels.

SERVPRO is available 24 hours a day and arrives on-site in less than four hours. Our teams can assist in moving heavier items if needed and begin removing water and moisture from your home. We want to return your home to normal humidity levels to avoid mold infestations as quickly as possible.
