SERVPRO techs know fast actions and advanced drying methods can assist in the restoration of your New York City home

When water pours across your hardwood floor in your New York City home from a plumbing mishap or appliance failure, it can cause a feeling of a total loss. However, if the extraction and drying process begins quickly after the first event, there is a good chance your investment in your flooring can get saved.

What Difference Can Professional Water Restoration Services Make?

SERVPRO technicians sometimes arrive on-site for water restoration services in New York homes to find that the property owner has already attempted to remove the water and dry the premises. This inability of consumer-grade equipment to properly extract water and dry the structure and contents can cause too much exposure to elevated moisture and render items unrecoverable through the cleaning and drying methods used by the techs. With rapid extraction and drying, hardwood floorboards can get dried in place and have the potential for a full recovery from water loss.

How Does the Water Damage Cleanup Process Work?

It starts with determining the true scope of the issue in the property using their various types of detection equipment. This allows the techs to peer behind walls and under floors to see the migration path of the water on-site and establish a solid cleanup plan for the home. The techs typically perform the following actions:
    •   Water extraction using their professional equipment
    •    Drying of the property using both air movers and dehumidifiers
    •    The use of specialized drying equipment on areas such as hardwood flooring
    •    Cleaning and sanitizing the loss area
    •    Any odor control applications necessary

SERVPRO of Lower East Side Manhattan at (917) 423-6364 has the equipment and experience to clean up and restore properties with any type or size of water damage. The sooner you start, the mitigation efforts have the potential to lessen the loss, call now.
