SERVPRO and Other Water Restoration Companies Offer Brooklyn Residents Additional Services Apart from Availing Better Restoration Equipment

Water leaks and intrusions happen all the time. However, most are limited in scale, so you handle them on your own. When a major incident happens at your Brooklyn house, you may think that you only need to upscale the equipment to restore normalcy. 

What types of equipment are standard for water restoration? 

Water restoration companies in Brooklyn have a plethora of equipment for handling various restoration tasks in water-damaged properties. However, four categories of equipment are crucial, including: 

  • Water extractors 
  • Humidity controllers 
  • Evaporation boosters 
  • Moisture diagnostic equipment 

If you plan to handle the water restoration as a DIY project, the most likely way you can access the necessary equipment is by hiring them since the cost of buying is prohibitive. Even with the rental option, you are less likely to get all the equipment you might need. You can get water extractors, dehumidifiers, and air movers but lack the smaller items such as moisture meters and hygrometers that provide crucial data to SERVPRO technicians improving coordination.

Apart from accessing all the necessary equipment, it also takes the right skills to get the right results when restoring your damaged property. 

How do skills affect the restoration process? 

  • Matching the equipment type with the prevailing conditions 
  • Correct placement of the equipment 
  • Monitoring changes and making appropriate adjustments 

You may take the equipment at face value. For instance, dehumidifiers extract moisture from the air. However, there are different categories of dehumidifiers out there, including refrigerant, desiccant, and LGR, among others. Each of these categories is best suited for specific conditions. For instance, the refrigerant variety works best within a temperature range between 70° to 90°F. Without such information, you might not get the results you expect, even when using the best equipment. Our SERVPRO technicians receive continuous training equipping them with the skills to maximize productivity.  

Involving water restoration companies in your project improves efficiency levels. Call SERVPRO of Northwest Brooklyn at (718) 522-4400 to assist you. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
