Water Damage in Mount Kisco
Water Damage in Mount Kisco Homes Gets Detailed Attention to Lessen Loss
When water damage happens, it is difficult to clean up as a DIY project without missing some of it. That is why when the scale of the loss has the potential to seep under flooring, saturate carpeting, or wick into walls; it is vital to bring in professional help.
SERVPRO techs work hard to remove all of the water damage from Mount Kisco homes and restore them to their preloss condition. This level of restoration service comes with extensive training adhering to the standards as taught through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), a non-profit dedicated to the promotion of best practices.
Along with comprehensive skills education, the technicians have access to a vast array of specialized equipment to handle all types of water extraction and drying properties. When sewage or contaminants are part of the equation, they have personal protective gear, including respirators with HEPA filtration, to inhibit the likelihood of breathing in airborne particulate.
How SERVPRO Techs Determine the Scale of Water Loss
Because water follows both the laws of gravity and the path of least resistance, it goes down as much as possible. The techs use their advanced moisture detection equipment that allows them to "see" behind walls and under floors to determine if the area needs extraction and drying.
What Happens When Water Gets Missed?
If water seeps into the subflooring, it can cause foul odors, mold, and tile delamination, all of which are much more costly issues to fix. When water invades wall cavities behind baseboards, mold infestations have the potential to grow unseen and spread until a large amount of the sheetrock requires removal turning a water loss problem into mold remediation.
How Does Professional Drying Differ?
When the techs set up drying equipment, they often turn to centrifugal air movers. These little powerhouses deliver air at such a high velocity they cause embedded moisture to rise. Then the carefully placed dehumidification equipment grabs the water vapor and ports it offsite. This cycle continues until the loss area is dry.
