Getting Water Removal Services Started Immediately in Water-Damaged Homes 

Water damage cleanup in Suffern is not as successful if water removal services have not started. Standing water can be a substantial threat to residences, making it critical for our responding technicians to provide immediate actions to overcome these concerns. Standing water leads to saturation into flooring materials, drywall, and areas beyond these surface materials like subflooring and structural cavities. Without preventing the spread of moisture through the property, the subsequent drying required will take longer and ultimately cost more. Eliminating standing water involves several extraction tools in our inventory, including:

  • Wet vacuums
  • Self-priming trash pumps
  • Electric submersible pumps
  • Light wands
  • Truck-mount extractors

How Can Air Movers Improve Evaporation?

Air movers are often the most critical element to water damage cleanup and drying. Centrifugal units target specific points of the damaged surfaces to maximize evaporation at these spots. Moisture monitoring equipment can help determine when these units have reached the desired production value on a specific area and should move to a new location to continue with efficient evaporation for collection by our strategically placed dehumidifiers.

How Do Dehumidifiers Eliminate Moisture Concerns?

Dehumidifiers work by capturing the moisture present in the environment and converting it back to a discardable liquid. Often, much of our equipment relies on pulling environmental air across cooling coils to allow for condensation to collect in a tray on the unit to be regularly emptied. In situations where entire households suffer moisture concerns, we have trailered desiccant dehumidifiers to pull out moist air and replace it with warm, dry air instead.

Is It Possible to Prevent Water Damage Repairs? 

It is always the intention of responding technicians and experts from our team to minimize tear-out and reconstruction whenever possible. While some degree of repair and build back might be inevitable in almost all water damage incidents that occur, the amount can often be reduced through swift action and thorough cleaning. Water damage cleanup focuses on removing surface moisture and trapped water from installed materials, making it possible to preserve and protect several building materials that otherwise require discarding.

Many tools and products are critical to water damage cleanup and mitigation of damaged properties. Our SERVPRO of Southern Rockland County team can help with efficient solutions to help you every step of the way. Give us a call today at (845) 400-4888.
