Certified Professionals Handle Water Mitigation in Mount Kisco Homes Better

You may not notice water damage in your house until it is too late. During your vacation, your basement could flood due to a burst pipe. Your dishwasher may leak because of improper maintenance and splash water on your hardwood kitchen floor. If you have a cracked tile in your upstairs bedroom, water can leak down into other areas, causing damage to your home. During such a situation, the best step to take is to involve experienced restorers like SERVPRO professionals who are licensed and equipped for the job. 

SERVPRO professionals have decades of experience and access to state-of-the-art equipment that helps us handle perform water mitigation in Mount Kisco homes. We are available around the clock to respond to our customers' water mitigation emergency calls since we understand how fast the damage spreads. Our restorers can use thermal imaging cameras to determine the extent of the damage and the best way to approach the mitigation. We always aim to minimize and prevent future damage by:

  • Removal of damaged furnishings and materials, including drywall and flooring.
  • Preparing salvageable materials for reuse.
  • Using commercial-grade equipment to extract water and dry the home.

Our SERVPRO technicians can remove all items affected by water, including carpet and padding, for special attention. Before we begin our mitigation process, our restorers ensure the property is safe from electrical hazards. We can use a non-contact voltage detector that detects whether current is flowing through the water. We begin drying the affected rooms using our advanced equipment and tools to hasten the process. Our SERVPRO technicians can use refrigerant dehumidifiers to remove water vapor from the air leading to an increased evaporation rate. 

We can also use an indirect fired furnace with heat exchangers to heat the airspace of a building area. The equipment takes dry outdoor air and heats it before releasing it into the affected area. This ensures the materials and surfaces in the property dry effectively.

Water damage may seem small, but it can lead to significant damage if left unattended for an extended period. Contact SERVPRO of Northern Westchester County at (914) 241-8100 for professional mitigation to make it "Like it never even happened."
