Mitigating Closet Water Damage in a Nampa Home

Water damage is one of the most common disaster occurrences in any home and can be exceptionally costly in areas like bedroom closets and other storage areas. While carpet and pad can usually dry within 24 to 48 hours of minor incidents, mold can also proliferate in that much time, which can create further damage and potential structural issues.

If your Nampa residence has suffered water damage, SERVPRO technicians can be at your home within hours of your call to restore your home to a preloss condition. This crew is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year to address disasters quickly. SERVPRO works with homeowners and insurance adjusters alike to restore structures and salvage possessions when it is safe and feasible to do so.

Minimizing Damage to Closet Items
?    Allow clothing, linens, and other items to dry completely before storing. Ensure that these possessions are clean to minimize the risk of mold and mildew. Allow air to circulate by not packing items too tightly.
?    Keep the door closed if the room is in a high humidity area like a bathroom, especially after using the shower.
?    If you notice odors in your closet, keep the door open as much as possible. Air out your closets periodically by removing items before thoroughly cleaning and drying the closet.
?    Use vinyl-coated wire shelving to improve air circulation. Keep shoe boxes and storage materials on wire shelves rather than on the floor to prevent trapping moisture.
?    Use a low-hanging, low-wattage light source. This type of lighting adds heat to the environment. To maximize safety, make sure that this light source is kept away from flammable items.

How SERVPRO Can Help
When a SERVPRO team comes to your home after a disaster, technicians can begin by measuring moisture levels in flooring and walls with both penetrating non-penetrating moisture sensors and meters. If there is moisture present behind walls and baseboards, they can also use infrared cameras. Tools like Thermo-hygrometers are used to measure relative humidity and determine drying goals. If your carpet has been affected by closet water damage, technicians can use portable, back-mounted extractors to thoroughly remove water and prepare the area for drying with centrifugal air movers and industrial-grade dehumidifiers.

SERVPRO of Nampa / Caldwell can ensure that your home looks, "Like it never even happened." Call (208) 466-5000 for cleanup you can count on every time.
