Collecting water with buckets Don’t let water take over your home. Don’t wait. Call SERVPRO today for assistance.

SERVPRO technicians can be on the scene quickly for any water damage restoration services needed in Rocky Point homes.

When a pipe breaks, roof leaks, or a toilet backs up, you can help limit the damage to your Rocky Point home by taking some preliminary actions before the SERVPRO technicians arrive on-site, by doing any of the following steps, only if it safe to do so:  

  • Turn off the water in the home if applicable
  • Move furnishings out of the wet area of the home
  • If the water contains sewage or known chemicals, avoid contact 
  • Close off the area if there is a strong odor  
  • If there is something you need from the area but cannot enter, tell the crew chief when the techs arrive, and they can obtain items out of the work-site for you

What is the Process for Water Damage Repair from SERVPRO?  

Even though every water damage repair job in Rocky Point has unique characteristics for SERVPRO, the scientific methods used by the certified techs are finite and designed for the most favorable outcome after water damage. 

The standard process is scoping of the area to locate the migration path of the water using different kinds of moisture detection devices, including thermal imaging and penetrating probes, depending on the surface getting inspected. Then they choose the method for water extraction depending on the amount of water that needs removal. The techs use submersible pumps to bring down standing water rapidly and then finish up with portable pumps to ensure as much moisture as possible. The attention paid during the extraction phase of the mitigation assists in lessening the drying time needed and allows the techs to move into prepping the job-site for the necessary repairs for a full restoration.

SERVPRO of Port Jefferson at (631) 476-5300 can handle any size water repair in your local properties from a single room to an entire home that needs extraction, drying, and restoration after water damage.
