Our Technicians Discuss What Is Involved In Our Water Damage Restoration Process In Glen Head
What To Expect From Professional Water Damage Remediation In Glen Head
When you notice signs of harm caused by water in your Glen Head home, it is possible the problem existed for quite some time. Supply and waste plumbing lines are concealed behind walls, under floors, and above ceilings. Small leaks eventually turn into large losses. The response required to return your home to pre-water loss condition might prove to be more complicated than first believed. Our professional team has the training and equipment to assess and respond appropriately.
It is not uncommon for an owner investigating a minor leak to discover significant water damage in their Glen Head home. The extent of harm to flooring or cabinets in your kitchen or bathroom can be extensive, pockets of water trapped under fixtures or entrenched in several layers of subflooring. Often secondary damage such as mold growth flagged by its distinctive smell is your first alert of severe water troubles.
SERVPRO helps with the aftermath of this unwanted surprise. Our technicians master a variety of courses from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in preparation for assisting residential property owners with water damage and structural drying.
Our technicians employ sensitive moisture meters and thermal imaging to locate the hidden water damage. Removing toe kickboards allows SERVPRO crews access to the areas under vanities in bathrooms or cabinets in kitchens to expose spaces where water pooled. We use powerful wanded extractors to reach and remove the puddled water and use research-based psychrometry (drying) strategies to pull moisture out of porous materials such as subflooring, wooden cabinets, drywall, and framing.
The IICRC-approved Applied Structural Drying (ASD) course completed by some of our crew readies SERVPRO employees to achieve the balance needed among the elements of air movement, temperature, and dehumidification that results in efficient moisture reduction. We periodically check the moisture concentration in the structural components and fixtures during the drying process to ensure the materials eventually return to normal levels.
