How Professionals Dry Water From Hidden Wall Cavities in Patchogue
Removing Water Damage from Wall Cavities in Patchogue Homes
Many homeowners do not realize how far-reaching water loss effects can be in their Patchogue residence until professional restoration specialists can show them. Unfortunately, many of these same homeowners mistakenly believe that their preliminary drying efforts have removed the threat, but this is not always the case. In many situations, water can spread into wall cavities, ceiling spaces, and beneath flooring where it is impossible to notice without sophisticated moisture detection tools.
Knowing how widespread these effects can be for water damage in your Patchogue home, our SERVPRO team can respond fast to these emergencies. Once we have identified the source of this damage, we can use these moisture reading tools to determine the presence of moisture pockets and dampness in the walls and in areas where accessibility is an issue. Our mitigation solutions can address saturation and standing water from the time that our team arrives, but we must know where these secondary effects exist to direct our equipment to resolve these situations as well.
Once moisture detection equipment has determined the location of these pockets of dampness and saturation in wall cavities and other challenging areas to reach, we get to work on reaching these effects. While air movers and dehumidifier units can address much of the water and moisture content within the affected areas of your property, we also have specialized machines designed to reach wall cavities and ceiling spaces such as our Injecti-Dry system.
With a minimalistic approach, we can inject hoses into this space between drywall and wood framing to force heated air into this region of the house. By running the dehumidifiers through this process as well, the units can pick up on added vapor in the environment when the Injecti-Dry system evaporates moisture and dampness.
We understand that drying out this portion of your home is just a small piece of the equation to restore any property after a water loss incident fully, but addressing these concerns can help to prevent hazards like mold growth from occurring. Trust our SERVPRO of Patchogue professionals to make water loss effects “Like it never even happened” in your house. Give us a call today at (631) 924-1801.
