Our Experts Discuss How To Protect Your Camarillo Home From Water Damage
Protect Your Basement In Camarillo
Making use of your basement as an additional living space is a great idea. Preparing it for your teenager and his friends to use it as a place to hang out and spend time together, gives you peace of mind. However, what happens when one day you find the basement plumbing has burst and soaked carpeting and furniture, leaving the whole space feeling like a giant puddle and challenging to restore? Reaching out to a professional team makes all the difference in making sure the restoration process is complete, but there are steps you can take while the pros arrive.
If this water damage scenario sounds like your Camarillo home, SERVPRO is here to help. Our crew is ready 24/7 to help you, and all you need to do is place a call. Our water restoration technicians (WRT) are certified to apply the latest industry techniques to extract water from your basement and prevent future consequences. In the meantime, you can protect your home by taking the following action steps:
• Make sure that the source of the leak is repaired. Sometimes it is hard to identify where the problem is, but not fixing it is just an invitation for future issues.
• Isolate the area affected as much as possible. Plastic sheeting and other waterproof barriers can help prevent the spread of water throughout your basement.
• Improve air circulation. Basements can have limited air coming into them, so bring in fans and dehumidifiers to encourage water extraction.
The steps above will help set the stage for our SERVPRO crew. Once we arrive, we can bring in specialized equipment to extract the water and also measure the quality of the air. By using advanced technology, we can monitor humidity levels and identify water accumulations invisible to the naked eye. If the drying process is not thorough, you run the risk of mold invading your space. Our team can apply its experience and training to leave your basement in mint condition.
