SERVPRO Features Trained Water Damage Restoration Technicians to Address the Cleanup and Repair Your Patchogue Home Needs

Once you notice that a pipe within your Patchogue home has been leaking for a while, this is no longer a simple plumbing issue. Over time, the water exiting the pipe has been migrating into unknown areas that call for expert detection and restoration efforts. While it is nice to hope that hidden water damage just disappears, it is crucial that you have trained technicians who can follow the path of migration. SERVPRO is available to handle all of your restoration needs so that the water damage quickly becomes a thing of the past.

Water incidents in the home can become costly, so professional water damage restoration in Patchogue is exceptionally beneficial. There could be slight damage in the form of staining on your walls or ceilings, or you may have significant devastation like warped cabinetry, ruined flooring, and the onset of mold and mildew. The fact is that any excessive leaking can bring about secondary damage that can get addressed with the help of skilled restoration efforts.

Why Should I Worry About Water Migration?

When you have leaking pipes anywhere in your home, the water coming from them migrates into dry spaces following the path of least resistance. Many porous materials in your home, such as drywall and wood, attract the water and begin to hold onto a significant amount of moisture. Water retention causes such materials to warp, swell, and eventually breakdown. There is also the potential for mold colonization if the moisture is not tackled quickly. We carefully monitor the walls and flooring in your home with the help of moisture detection tools to tell us if we are on track with our drying goals.

How Does SERVPRO Dry My Interior Faster Than My Fans?

Our skilled technicians have access to a vast assortment of equipment that helps us to find hidden moisture while also enhancing overall drying times. The attention to detail cuts back on secondary water damage under carpets, flooring, and behind walls in your home. The planning and process we put into place ensure we adjust as needed to bring relative humidity back down to normal levels. We use equipment such as:

  • Moisture Meters – Non-penetrating and penetrating moisture meters determine moisture content in different structural materials, telling our team when the structure is properly dried.
  • Moisture Sensors – Such devices determine moisture left in soft materials like carpeting and carpet padding.
  • Thermo-Hygrometers – Equipment like this measures the temperature and relative humidity in the air throughout your home.

Why Are Your Methods Better than DIY Water Cleanup?

Although a wet-dry vacuum and fans you own may help with slight water incidents, there is nothing more effective or powerful than professional-grade water removal and drying tools. Larger jobs and hidden leaks call for the assistance of IICRC-certified technicians to handle the project. If you happen to have any standing water present, we use equipment like:

  • Submersible pumps
  • Truck-mounted extractors
  • Portable pumps
  • Light-wand extractors
  • Ride-on units, also known as rovers

How Does My Interior Get Restored Back to Normal?

Wherever there is significant water damage, controlled demolition might be required. Our crew carefully removes unsalvageable materials to be replaced with all-new materials for a like-new finish. Some of the minor building services or repairs used to bring your home back to the preloss condition include:
