SERVPROs Exceptional Water Damage Restoration at a Syracuse Home
Measures That Aid Water Damage Mitigation in Syracuse
Water damage in your Syracuse home is something you never plan for. So when the incident strikes, you need to dry out and restore everything to its preloss state. Water damage affects your property and its contents. Stopping the water in its tracks helps minimize the damage.
Certain situations could turn water damage restoration in your Syracuse home into a big job. For instance, structural material might have to be torn out and replaced after more than 24 hours of exposure to water. Also, specialized mitigation techniques might be necessary in case of mold growth deep inside walls. By bringing in the right professionals, like SERVPRO, you can restore your home and salvage what you can.
Signs of water damage
- Warped or loose baseboards
- Warped and cracked tile or laminated wood floors
- Under-sink watermarks or mold signs
- Ring-like stains on ceilings
Removing moisture and drying out affected areas
Time is crucial when responding to a water loss because water can quickly absorb various building materials and contents. This causes water damage to spread over a wider area and puts the affected materials at risk of staining, warping, and rotting. When structural materials such as wood and drywall become affected by moisture, severe structural damage can occur.
Removing water from a structure starts with extraction. There are different extraction tools to use depending on the amount of water in your home. For example, a portable extractor works well in restricted areas since it can be carried around. Most extractors feature three components, the heater, pump, and vacuum systems. We only use the vacuum components when removing water; however, we use all the components when cleaning the carpet.
Dehumidification is also essential to help remove water vapor from the air. Additionally, shutting the room's windows and doors prevents more humidity from circulating in, thus enhancing faster drying.
Some activities during restoration may include;
- Ripping out floorboards
- Tearing down walls panels
- Removing mold
