Effective Removal and Recovery of Water Damage

The linear footage of installed plumbing throughout your property is surprisingly large. Even a tiny hole in one of these pipe portions can cause a considerable mess.

However, disasters can severely impact your home without prompt action to shut off water flow. SERVPRO is a trusted name to help with the cleaning, drying, and repairs your property might need when facing the effects of a leak.

Water damage in Bay Ridge homes and businesses is a common threat. From pipes bursting under freezing conditions to aging appliances splitting hoses or a compromised HVAC system, water can be destructive to your home in countless ways. For this reason, we must maintain 24/7 availability so mitigation and emergency services can begin where necessary.

The Emergency Services Starting Mitigation

Our professionals must reach homes quickly when disasters strike. Water damage can move rapidly from room to room, spreading through walls and building materials as fast as these surfaces can absorb moisture. Emergency services are critical to effective recovery, as these efforts eliminate immediate pressing hazards and concerns and work to keep the situation from worsening. Multiple elements fall under this first phase of damage cleanup, which can include:

  • Water Removal
  • Utility Repairs
  • Mold Prevention
  • Content Relocation
  • Controlled Demolition

Needed Equipment for Extraction

Little can be done for a home or business suffering water damage until standing water in the structure has been removed. Because of this vital component to restoration and recovery, our technicians reach your home with multiple extraction tools and instruments to eliminate pooling water. Often, this process is a combination of pumps and vacuums.

What Principles Aid with Effective Drying?

Drying is one of the most important elements of recovering water damage to your home. Essentially, three primary principles must remain in balance to keep fast and effective drying occurring throughout our cleanup efforts. These include:

  • Temperature – The ambient temperature close by water damaged materials can affect the evaporation rate and eventual drying. We arrive with portable heaters to manipulate the temperatures in drying zones.
  • Airflow – Airflow often indicates using air movers and other high-velocity blowers to force air onto wet surfaces to encourage evaporation. Centrifugal and axial air movers are most commonly used. However, installations like ventilation fans can also help this process.
  • Humidity – It becomes critical to manage moisture in the environment and wet materials found throughout damaged areas in the house. Dehumidifiers are the principal instrument in absorbing water vapor and regulating environmental moisture to promote faster drying.

The Need for Repairs After Water Damage

Even with effective drying and recovery work, repairs and reconstruction are often inevitable. With On staff contractors With the general contracting license, we can complete controlled demolition and needed build-back services along with the restoration work. These accredited professionals save customers time and money and provide peace of mind that life returns to normal faster.
