We Are The Leader In Brooklyn Water Damage Restoration
Signs Your Brooklyn Floor Needs Professional Help for Water Damage
When a water damage event happens in your home, the first thought is to clean it up yourself. Most people have mops, rags, and some have wet/dry vacuums to assist in wiping up the water.
The downside to this action is that water migrates quickly and can wind up far away from the origination point, setting up your Brooklyn home for water damage. One example might be when a pipe breaks in an upper floor in a bathroom, gravity pulls the water downward, and it runs under the tile floor, between the floor joists and exists into the living room below, all over a couch and carpeted floor. If any moisture gets left behind in these areas, it can trigger issues such as mold or musty odors.
The technicians use advanced detection equipment to thoroughly scope the property to determine the migration path of the water. This equipment ensures that the property has the water extracted and dried without the potential for issues after-the-fact. They use powerful extraction equipment and have specialized drying equipment to handle flooring of different types including hardwood floor, tile, and cement.
Signs Water Remains On-Site
Giveaways that water damage is still within the property include any of the following:
- Warped or buckled sheetrock
- Musty odors
- Delaminated tiles
- Effervescent on cement or brick
- Bubbles in the paint on walls
Help With Rebuilding
Water ruins floors and sheetrock rapidly, and they often require removal as part of the restoration process. With their residential contractor license #2015353DCA, SERVPRO can offer property owners the option to let the same techs that cleaned up the water loss, full restore the home with their rebuilding service.
