Why SERVPRO Is The Leader In Glen Cove After A Water Loss
Cost-Effective Restoration of Water Damage Loss in Glen Cove
Of the many problems that affect households, water damage can prove costly to restore, especially if restoration efforts are mishandled. SERVPRO can help minimize some costs and help restore your home to its preloss state.
Several factors can exaggerate the costs involved after a water damage incident in Glen Cove, but the size of the affected area is one of the main determinants since the cost of damage depends on the affected square feet. After the initial water spill, the damage continues to spread as the water intrudes into different areas through gravitation-aided water flow, capillary action, condensation, and hygroscopic action. Such additional migration increases the area affected by the spill if it goes unchecked and thus adding unnecessary costs to the original loss. Our SERVPRO technicians can help by taking a variety of steps to stop widespread water migration including;
- Protecting contents with plastic sheets
- Expediting extraction of standing water
- Removing vulnerable materials likely to stain
- Managing humidity levels preventing condensation problems
In many cases, water damage requires the removal of materials for restoration or replacement purposes. The location of the material in question determines how difficult the process, which can influence the costs, involved. For example, baseboards are easier to remove compared to insulation, which is hidden within wall cavities. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect the affected areas and determine easy ways to remove the targeted material. For example, we make flood cuts to remove wet insulation and drywall without opening up the entire walls. Sometimes we forego the removal of any materials by using specialized extraction or drying equipment such as the injecti-dry system and drying mats to remove moisture from cavities.
Every item or material disposed of after water loss incidents translates to cost. Minimizing such disposal, therefore, helps reduce costs. Our SERVPRO technicians help save costly materials such as hardwood floorboards by using specialized drying techniques such as the use of drying chambers.
Any step that can help reduce the costs involved after water loss incidents is welcome. Call SERVPRO of Glen Cove / Jericho at (516) 671-1919 to help. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
