SERVPRO Does Not Start Water Damage Repairs before Taking Steps to Contain Moisture 

After a water intrusion from burst pipes or ceiling leaks, the damage is not contained even after stopping the source. The water already released can wick through materials or evaporate and then condense, spreading damage beyond the initially affected areas. Involving a professional like SERVPRO in water damage restoration helps.

Although water damage restoration in Hicksville homes is meant to fix areas already affected by moisture, soiling, or other issues, it can also play a preventive role when done correctly. Reducing the areas affected can minimize costs and the time taken to finish the restoration process. Our SERVPRO teams can help take the necessary steps to stop further deterioration before taking the other restorative actions.

The primary restoration processes may involve:

A typical restorative step taken by our SERVPRO crews is making flood cuts along the walls in waterlogged rooms. We cut the wall panels a few inches above the waterline, removing the deteriorated drywall and insulation. The move also severs the connection between the standing water on the floor and the rest of the structure, thus halting moisture from spreading through wicking.

On arrival at the loss site, our SERVPRO technicians use thermo-hygrometers to check the humidity and temperature levels in different rooms. We then set up dehumidifiers to help keep relative humidity levels at optimum levels below 60%, thus preventing damage from condensation. 

SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview has extensive experience handling water damage restoration processes, thus acquiring the skills to handle any loss, “Like it never even happened.” You can reach us at (516) 733-1800 when you need assistance.
