The tropical storms, rain, and humidity that are common to the St. Augustine, FL area make water damage almost inevitable for homeowners and business owners. However, these are not the only source of water damage as plumbing leaks and burst pipes can also result in excess water in the home. Water and moisture can easily penetrate porous surfaces and materials including furniture, flooring, drywall, and wood. This increases the risk of structural damage by weakening the materials and also creates favorable conditions for mold that can affect your property and your health. ServiceMaster Restoration of First Coast provides water damage restoration services in St. Augustine, FL to help remove all water or moisture and restore the affected areas. We use advanced water extraction and drying equipment to ensure that all excess moisture is completely removed.
