What are Signs of Water Damage in Hollywood Apartments?

Water Damage Includes Stained Walls and Peeling Wallpapers in Your Hollywood Apartment 

When your apartment's bathroom exhaust fails, steam no longer has a non-damaging means of escaping your home. Other situations in Hollywood residences that can create problems include misaligned dryer vents and slow leaks in pipes and drains. 

These secondary sources of moisture inside an apartment can slowly lead to water damage in Hollywood. When moisture sits on surfaces, slow absorption of the moisture causes porous materials to disintegrate slowly. Paint can begin peeling and flaking because the bond between the surface and the paint weakens. It allows the color to pull away whenever fluctuations in temperature cause contractions and expansions in either material. 

Wallpaper coverings react similarly and begin bubbling wherever moisture can penetrate underneath, which can occur along seams and within corners. Before your wallpaper coverings or borders become permanently damaged by children or pets pulling it off in shreds, reattaching remains possible. However, SERVPRO technicians need to resolve the problem by ensuring water no longer can make its way throughout your home. We also need to dry everything out, including the air. 

We check for locations that produce moisture within your home, and then we steadily work with you to get things corrected. Keeping things dry inside your dwelling requires that we stop new water from coming in and remove any water currently present. Our moisture meters can detect even the slightest elevations of moisture. Our infrared thermal imaging devices easily locate areas within walls and other structures that retain moisture. We compare initial readings with those taken during and after we carry out our work. 

Restoring your apartment's walls with new paint and wall coverings can make everything look new again, just like when you moved into your home. Even when water damage occurs through no fault of your own, its presence can create problems regaining your security deposit when you move to another location. SERVPRO of Cutler Bay can help you make things look "Like it never even happened." Call SERVPRO at (305) 278-8484, so we can get things looking their best again.
