Not One, But Two Floors of Water Removal and Cleanup in Brooklyn

Surprise water damage events are overwhelming for homeowners even more so when the indoor disaster affects not one, but two floors.

When SERVPRO technicians arrive to perform water removal at Brooklyn homes, they scope the property to find anywhere the water migrated. In cases where the water spill event encompasses two floors, the cleanup is even more challenging.

Controlled Demolition Tactics

When water affects multiple floors of a home, extraction and thorough drying needs to occur within the floor joists to prevent costly future issues such as mold, weakening of the building materials or foul odors. Controlled demolition techniques such as weep holes or removal of sections of sheetrock to increase the amount of airflow work to ensure complete drying of the affected areas.

Professional Drying Techniques

Consumer-grade fans generally have the ability to only dry surfaces. The centrifugal air movers blast warm, dry air into the water-affected areas and cause the embedded moisture left behind after water extraction to rise. SERVPRO technicians choose from different types of dehumidifying equipment to capture the water vapor and remove it from the area.

Restoration of Upholstered Furnishings

When water comes from a floor above, it often winds up in the carpet or upholstered furnishings in the room below. SERVPRO water removal equipment has specialized attachments such as weighted extractor heads that push water out of porous items. To keep home disruption to a minimum, they can dry fabric-covered furniture in place, and they have the skill to avoid stains on carpet or residual spotting on the upholstery.

Reconstruction Services Lessen Stress

After completion of the water damage cleanup efforts, SERVPRO technicians give the homeowner a report that serves the dual purpose of assisting in the expediting of any insurance claims and also details the nature of the repairs necessary to return the home to its preloss condition. As they have a general contractors license #2015353DCA, they can offer both restoration and reconstruction services.

The faster water removal happens, the more opportunity to lessen damage to the home and contents. Contact SERVPRO of Northwest Brooklyn at (718) 522-4400 when you need a quick turnaround on cleanup and restoration services to make it "Like it never even happened."
