Risks of Standing Water in Your East Village Residence

Clearing standing water from your East Village home requires multiple tools and practices happening as quickly as possible. As challenging as this situation can be, it can be even more damaging and destructive to the materials exposed. Water removal is always one of the focal points of water loss mitigation for area homes, and that is why our SERVPRO professionals arrive with an array of powerful machines capable of reducing standing water promptly in a residence.

The choice in the best tool or approach for water cleanup in East Village homes depends on multiple factors. Finding the ideal device for specific standing water concerns can make the process more efficient and help our customers to save both time and money throughout the restoration. Appreciating the urgency in the situation is vital to reducing total property loss, so it is critical to know the risks of allowing standing water to persist in your residence longer than necessary.

Structural Degradation
Perhaps one of the most direct paths that standing water can take to cost a homeowner money in a restoration sense is destroying exposed materials. With direct interaction with walls, flooring, and even ceiling material, porous surfaces can absorb moisture and allow the liquid to alter the molecular design to warp and distort the affected material. An excellent example of this is wood plank flooring absorbing water and the planks swelling at the seams.

Water Migration
Water rarely stops moving and is always looking for a new path to get to another location. After a water loss incident in your house, this behavior of water could mean more and more damage to your residence until the situation gets brought to the attention of our capable SERVPRO restoration professionals.

Microbial Threats
Mold is always a concern when elevated moisture levels exist in an environment. Mold can deteriorate hosting materials for the colonies and present direct health effects to those exposed.

Several potential problems could arise from waiting to address standing water in your house. Give our SERVPRO of Lower East Side / Downtown Manhattan a call today to help avoid these concerns as much as possible. We are available 24/7 at (332) 900-2337.
