How Fast Can Water Damage Happen in Setauket
Want to know how quickly water damage can happen? Imagine you put a load of laundry in the washing machine and went out to mow the lawn. You were not very far away but during the hour or so you were outside, gallon after gallon of water spilled on your floor from a broken hose.
Indoor water spills causing water damage in Setauket homes are not an uncommon call we get. A common mistake many homeowners make is to throw down towels and wipe the walls and think that is enough. However the water has also had an opportunity to travel behind baseboards, wick into drywall and if it has reached carpeted areas, the carpet and padding can have moisture problems.
It is crucial to engage a professional cleanup company when your home has a water loss. SERVPRO technicians remove any standing water and use different types of moisture detectors to determine precisely where there is an excess of moisture. Extra time is spent extracting as much water as possible wherever it has collected as it lessens the drying time for the room.
Our technicians are specially certified in the science of air and water vapor and have working knowledge for using the right equipment configurations to dry your home using techniques that pull moisture up and out of building materials and room contents. When a room has the moisture levels appropriately reduced, it lowers the probability of secondary damages such as mold growth or odors.
After drying, our technicians clean the area with our EPA-registered disinfectants. This hand cleaning is another step in our remediation process that further inhibits both mold and foul odors. Once the cleanup is complete, SERVPRO technicians go over the areas addressed and ensure homeowners are satisfied with our work. We can also offer suggestions for repairs to ensure the washing machine should not be a contributor to a water spill in the home again.
