Early Scoping Shows Water Damage Repair Needs

Our professionals must work fast when water damage events occur to identify the type of threat that has resulted and the impact on structural elements. Job scoping inspections collect data about structural integrity and determine the needed mitigative strategies like repairs and demolition.

Controlled Demolition

Water damage repairs for San Jose homes typically begin with clearing bulk materials and damaged structural elements. This early action removes elements that could allow moisture to continue migrating or secondary impacts like mold development. Demolition also provides access to damaged plumbing and wall cavities when needed.

Replacing Damaged Plumbing

Plumbing is often the trigger of water damage incidents, making its repair one of the priorities of responding professionals. It is vital to restore the water service to the house and repressurize these lines so we can access the damaged points of the system via wall assemblies and replace compromised portions. Problems often exist with:

  • Degrading copper tubing
  • Failing pipe fittings
  • Damaged fixtures

Reinstalling Floors

Water pools along the floors when damage events occur. Even with the prompt water removal services from our SERVPRO IICRC-certified team, the state of the flooring must be evaluated. Carpeting and wood plank flooring are sensitive to absorption and saturation damage, which can change their composition and appearance enough to require replacement.

Mold Damage Repairs

It is not uncommon for mold damage to result after prolonged water exposures. Mold can compromise structural elements differently, eroding the integrity of these materials as they become a food source for the growing and spreading colony. Demolition and material replacement is often necessary when infestations root deeply enough.

Water damage repairs are not always necessary after disasters, but our SERVPRO of San Jose team is ready to help quickly when structural compromise results. We have a fast response for both mitigation and the repairs necessary to restore comfortable living conditions for a house. Give us a call today at (408) 834-7663.
