SERVPRO Professionals Restore Water Damage to Middletown Homes Fast

There is a finite timeline for restoration when water emergencies and loss events threaten your home or business. Effects continually migrate, seeking an equilibrium of temperature, pressure, and water content. Experienced professionals must mitigate loss with immediate emergency services like:

  • Repairs
  • Content relocation
  • Extraction
  • Temporary construction

Water damage for Middletown homes must be addressed immediately. As qualified and certified water restoration professionals, our SERVPRO team has 24/7 availability to get mitigation started as soon as disasters strike.

How Was Your Home Damaged? 

The way a property becomes damaged is essential to the methods used to restore and recover the house. Burst pipes, for example, require a range of tools for water removal and drying porous exposed building materials.

Is There Water Damage You Cannot See? 

Among the most troublesome products of DIY restoration is learning later that all the water damage was not adequately managed and removed. Preventable damage and destruction are not easily distinguished during restoration without technologies and products like our SERVPRO team uses. After surface drying, hidden water caches in structural cavities and damp pockets can still exist. Sensors and thermal imagery play a considerable role in the continued direction of drying efforts until the situation is resolved.

How Does Water Damage Get Dried? 

The most critical process of responding technicians is drying out trapped moisture and environmental moisture content from the residence. The full spectrum of restoration actions requires selecting from hundreds of drying tools and products from our stock. We invest in modern technologies and equipment to ensure the most efficient recovery approaches for our customers. Key tools for water restoration include:  

  • Extractors 

Surface water management begins with eliminating pooling on flooring and within structural cavities. We have multiple extraction units to eliminate standing water threats. 

  • Air Movers

Air movers are among the most heavily used drying tools in our inventory. We can place them several feet from one another, chained together to limit the necessary power supplies. These units run warm air across moist surfaces to promote evaporation.

  • Dehumidifiers 

Regulating the relative humidity and moisture content is critical in productive evaporation and drying. The placement and frequency of dehumidification units can be beneficial in reducing moist environments. 

  • Heaters 

Raising the temperature of a work area is almost always beneficial for drying and cleaning water emergencies. Warming surfaces cause faster molecular movement for increased evaporation and reduce contact times necessary for cleaning surfaces.

Issues with Elevated Humidity

Water emergencies raise the humidity in a property through direct moisture exposure from the leak or damage event and the indirect production of water vapors when evaporation gets underway on moist surfaces. If left unresolved, higher concentrations of moisture content and humidity produce connected threats to the structure like mold development and material degradation.
