We can help save all of your Cutler Bay essential items.

When the hose on your washing machine breaks or comes loose, there is a constant supply of water releasing into your property. Similar to a burst pipe, a broken hose can spew hundreds of gallons of water out in a short period. When you arrive home from work, you may find your kitchen, living room, and hallways submerged under standing water. These situations are debilitating, but with the right approach and contacts, you can overcome it with minimum permanent damage. 

Our technicians specialize in water damage and are based right here in Cutler Bay. By reaching out to us, you are leaving your property in the hands of professionals with experience in dealing with similar problems in this community. You may want to remove any essential items from the affected area as it may be necessary to cordon it off during service. These items may include things like medication, vital identification or insurance documents as well as dry electronics. 

You can flag any wet electronics to your SERVPRO technician during the opening inspection. Electronic devices can take on water easily and suffer permanent damage if moisture inside reaches the dew point. Our technicians can hold room temperature above the dew point while specialist electronic recovery services arrive. Any valuable paper documents can undergo similar mitigation through vacuum-drying, which halts further damage immediately. 

Your property and furniture may show signs of water damage if they are treated without the correct care and attention. Watermarking can occur when exposure to moisture affects some areas of a fabric, but not others. Equally, some dyes that furniture coverings use can bleed when wet, which can affect other areas of the home, such as carpets, flooring, or side-tables. The final consideration for a SERVPRO technician is the effect cleaning solutions may have on a particular fabric- some solutions may damage satin but not cotton.

Methodical approaches to restoration are essential to mitigating loss. Conducting pre-tests on smaller, unnoticeable areas of fabric can prevent a salvageable item from becoming non-salvageable. We include a full range of pre-cleaning solutions, conditioners as well as solvents inside our service trucks. 

Whatever a technician may encounter, we provide them with the correct equipment to deal with staining, fabrics, or watermarks on your furnishings. Contact SERVPRO of Cutler Bay at (305) 278-8484.
