SERVPRO Technicians are Skilled in Remediating Water Damage

Comfort in a semi-tropical climate can require the use of air conditioner units or central air to moderate the temperature. Reducing interior humidity is key to successful air conditioning. The condensation that occurs when an air conditioner is removing moisture from the air must be managed and disposed of appropriately, typically through a series of drain pans and overflow outlets. If your air conditioner experiences a backup of water because of a clogged drainage system, you can suffer water damage to walls, floors, ceilings and even window coverings in your home. SERVPRO can respond quickly to resolve the damage caused by condensation and inadequate drainage, preventing permanent damage to your home and possessions.
 
Water damage in Palmetto Bay from a malfunctioning air conditioner often manifests itself slowly and you may not even know the system is not draining well until a puddle forms inside or you notice a foul smell or even mold growth near cool air vents. Clearing the drainage system is just the first step in restoring the effects of air conditioner water damage. Our certified technicians will thoroughly inspect the interior and exterior of your home proximate to the air conditioner and find all areas that show water damage, even in places you would not have suspected to show the effects of condensation or poor drainage. In consultation with you, we will develop a mitigation plan that will clean, restore or replace materials compromised by the water, including attending to any microbial activity fed by the water damage.
 
We have the training and the equipment to contain and remediate water damage and musky smelling fungal growth. Since air conditioners move chilled air throughout your house is essential that the duct work be inspected as part of the water damage protocol, ensuring potentially dangerous materials are not sent airborne. SERVPRO is uniquely qualified to respond to all issues raised by the water damage caused by improperly operating or draining air conditioners. Experienced in water extraction, structural drying, odor reduction and microbial activity containment, we are able to restore walls, flooring, ceilings, furnishings and window coverings to pre-water damage condition as well as restoring a fresh and healthy airflow.
