New Orleans Water Damage Restoration Includes Structural Drying

Understanding that wood elements such as cabinets, vanities, and flooring are highly vulnerable to migrating moisture during a water damage incident is crucial. Delaying mitigative actions can lead to severe destruction of these exposed wood elements, which may require extensive repairs to restore the damage. Our Lighthouse Disaster Services team strongly recommends immediate and decisive action to minimize the destruction caused by water damage and safeguard your valuable assets.

Mitigation Hinges on Fast Water Removal

Effective water removal services are critical to water damage restoration for New Orleans homes and businesses. Water pooling can cause significant damage to exposed areas of property. That’s why our team at Lighthouse Disaster Services swiftly mitigates these threats using top-notch extraction equipment from our recovery inventory. Our arsenal includes a variety of extraction devices, from submersible pumps to efficient vacuum systems, all aimed at ensuring rapid and thorough water removal.

Salvaging Wood Flooring 

When it comes to removing trapped moisture from wood plank flooring, there’s one approach that stands out as consistently effective: floor drying mats. These large mats are designed to attract moisture to the surface, making it easy to collect and dispose of. However, we use tenting with the mats to ensure maximum efficiency and prevent further damage to the planks and flooring materials. 

Monitoring the Structural Drying

It is crucial to continually watch the progress of water and moisture removal from flooring, fixtures, and other wood elements. Structural drying can be aggressive and cause over-drying of wood structures and contents, which can be as destructive as water damage. To ensure the drying process is effective, we utilize a range of tools and equipment from our inventory, including:

  • Hygrometers
  • Surface moisture meters
  • Thermal imagery

Removing trapped moisture from wood elements in your home after a water damage incident requires quick and efficient action.
