Water Damage Repair and Cleanup in Syracuse
SERVPRO Provides Water Damage Repair, Mold Mitigation, and Cleanup in Syracuse
Water and high moisture levels inside Syracuse homes contribute to the formation of mold colonies. Before residents and homeowners are aware, slow water leaks around windows, leaky plumbing, or air conditioners can cause mold formation. They may notice a strong, musty odor and, once they investigate, find a leak, damaged structure, flooring, and walls.
SERVPRO provides water damage repairs caused by water leaks in Syracuse homes and businesses. Mold colonies can begin forming in as little as 24 hours. Our water damage repair and mold mitigation technicians can respond in less than 4 hours, twenty-four-seven. Mold can cause health effects in many consumers. That’s why it is so important to react quickly and begin water removal and drying operations immediately.
Our experience has shown the best approach to mitigate the growth of mold is to:
- Completely dry the area, lowering the humidity in the space to normal levels.
- Removal of contaminated porous materials, including contents or structure
- Chlorine bleach solutions and quaternary compounds have some effect on molds; however, neither should be used as the first step in remediation.
Mold colonies also form in bathrooms with poor ventilation or under kitchen and bathroom sinks where small leaks go unnoticed for weeks or months. Water penetrates the particle board of the cupboards and the subfloor, causing them to expand and lose strength and support abilities. Repair may be required to the plumbing and extensive restoration in long-term situations.
Once the mold and water leak are remedied, SERVPRO can assist with repairing and restoring the affected area. Our building services team includes plumbers, electricians, drywall installers, and painters, to name a few.
Our SERVPRO team leaders can assess the situation and provide recommendations on how to proceed.
