SERVPRO Handles Cocoa Car Cleaning Emergency Services Water Damage

Cocoa residential and commercial properties are not the only kinds of local support SERVPRO provides for water damage restoration. The trained and certified employees of SERVPRO can also handle water removal services from local Central Brevard vehicles. The vehicle owner had a faulty seal around the rear windshield that resulted in a large amount of water entering the car and filling up the spare wheel well in the trunk.

SERVPRO Determines the Type of Water Damage Restoration Needed in a Cocoa Car

The techs from SERVPRO scoped the car and found that once the wheel well filled up, the rainwater spilled over and saturated the entirety of the Central Brevard car's trunk. Another issue added to the water damage restoration needs was the visible mold damage growing within the area. Fortunately, SERVPRO technicians have extensive training in handling all types of water restoration services in all types of structures, including vehicles of all kinds.

Actions Needed for Water Damage Restoration to the Cocoa Car Trunk by SERVPRO

Since the trunk fabric had saturation from both rainwater that had degraded and potentially had bacterial growth and the presence of an active mold infestation in this Cocoa resident's vehicle, the covering requires removal and disposal so the metal wheel well could dry completely. SERVPRO technicians carefully removed the cover and opened up the wheel well area for water removal services and drying. Using portable pumps with extractor wands made the water cleanup a snap.

When SERVPRO techs moved on to the water restoration services' drying phase, they set up a plastic tent over the trunk and used hoses to deliver the dry, warm air from their professional drying equipment. A dehumidifier was also connected to the trunk to port away moisture as it was raised. SERVPRO technicians use various equipment types to take air moisture readings within the Central Brevard trunk and determine if it verifies as dry. This attention to detail during the water restoration services ensures no residual areas of moisture left behind in the Central Brevard car trunk.

Cleaning the Cocoa Car Trunk with Professional Water Damage Restoration Solutions

During the water clean up process in this Central Brevard vehicle, SERVPRO techs needed to consider a few things when choosing the right cleaning agent to work on the trunk. The SERVPRO techs needed to select solutions that would not harm, rust, or pit the metal and work against any residual bacteria or mold spores that were still present after the water removal services and drying to the Central Brevard car.

The trained SERVPRO technicians chose a multi-layered approach of using biocides and antimicrobial agents for cleaning that would ensure no damage occurred to the wheel well and would work to eliminate the return of any mold damage to the spot. Bacteria and particulate are the sources of musty water odors within both Cocoa structures and articles. Once SERVPRO completed the hand-cleaning of the trunk, there were no residual odors present. As seen in the After Photo, the Central Brevard vehicle's wheel well is clean, dry, and shows no sign of the previous water damage repairs needed to eliminate the water in the trunk.
