SERVPRO Improves Water Restoration in Suffern Properties Through Better Preparedness

Water changes almost any of the materials found in a home. However, many factors influence the outcome, so each water leak is unique. What matters most after an incident at your Suffern home is the restoration plan that you implement.

A water damage restoration plan for Suffern homes incorporates many things and depends mainly on the resources you can mobilize. SERVPRO steps in to provide any necessary resources, including equipment, technical skills, and workers to perform various tasks that manage the damages left on your property.

Typical water restoration tasks include:

  • Cleaning to remove soils or stains
  • Moisture control
  • Removal of materials

Usually, restoration starts with mild procedures such as water extraction, cleaning, and drying. Other things like replacing materials should only be used as a last resort since it can be very costly, and you cannot return the sentimental value of the removed item. Most of the time, efforts to salvage items exposed to moisture fall short because of poor preparation.

Poor preparation can mean different things like:

  • Failure to set any goals
  • Insufficient equipment
  • Insufficient workforce

Setting restoration goals help establish what is achievable and the likely timelines. Setting goals requires the appropriate information, such as the level of wetness in materials and the standard moisture content. Evaluating the current wetness levels with the normal typical moisture levels establishes the span such a process can take. 

Most aspects of water restoration are repetitive and tedious. If there is a limited workforce or equipment, even straightforward tasks like drying wet carpets can take longer to complete. Apart from having multiple technicians, our SERVPRO teams bring various equipment, including air movers, deep water extractors, and dehumidifiers, to the affected property. 

SERVPRO of Southern Rockland County is always prepared to tackle water damage restoration addressing any deterioration "Like it never even happened." You can reach us at (845) 400-4888.
