How Can Ceiling Leaks Be Dangerous in Suffern Properties?
SERVPRO Removes Hanging Debris from Suffern Water Damaged Structures
When a home has a ceiling leak, it is an indication of a more significant issue. The key to limiting damage to the property and contents is to locate the source. After storms deliver copious amounts of water that causes flash floods when the floor takes on moisture, it can wreck the ceiling below in the basement.
SERVPRO technicians inspect Suffern homes for flood damage issues upon arrival, and the technicians use more than visuals. The techs have access to many equipment types to locate moisture collections within the structure without removing portions of the floor or wall to find water migration paths.
Some of the most relied on devices SERVPRO uses are:
- Infrared cameras that do not detect water but temperatures
- Probes to find leaking into the subfloor
- Equipment to take air moisture readings
Ceiling leaks can be hazardous to be around in a home. As the sheetrock wicks water, it swells and deteriorates until it finally falls. When large pieces of the ceiling collapse, it has the potential to cause injury.
