Our SERVPRO Team Restores Water Damage Inside Local College Dorm

In this video, you can get a look into the methods our SERVPRO of Oxnard technicians use to overcome substantial water damages to a major university dormitory in our area. As our franchise owner Michael Nunes explains, the water loss incident began on the 4th floor of the dorm through a pipe leaking above the bathroom area. This damage continued to affect every floor beneath it, causing a considerable amount of damage for our experienced team of professionals to overcome.

As is the case with any water loss situation, the assessment was the priority when our team first arrived. Understanding the scope of the damage can help our technicians to know what equipment is necessary for restoration and to inspect the structural integrity of affected materials. It was our plan in this restoration to limit the tear out as much as possible to minimize our impact on the lives of those affected.

Regarding equipment, our SERVPRO technicians chose to focus most on dehumidifiers and air movers to isolate the saturated materials and work to preserve these elements wherever possible. As you can see from the video, our technicians are bringing these pieces of equipment into one of the affected areas to let it start running. These machines can reduce moisture levels significantly, limiting the risks of secondary effects like mold growth.

With the students removed from the area while the restoration takes place, it becomes a greater priority of ours to work as efficiently as possible. Through approaches like limiting tear out and rebuilds and relying more on drying equipment, we can reduce the time it takes for these displaced students to return to their living quarters.

Commercial properties and homes throughout the area require immediate assistance from competent and experienced restoration specialists when they face substantial water damages like you can see in the video. Our SERVPRO of Oxnard emergency response team is always ready to handle any situation that your property faces, and we can work efficiently to return your home or business to preloss conditions as quickly as possible. Give us a call 24/7 at (805) 984-2347.
