What to Expect During Home Water Damage Restoration in Somerset

Water damage hits local Somerset area homes in many forms. Cold weather and inadequately winterized or unheated basements produce pipe bursts. All year- round situations happen where appliances malfunction and sewage systems back up. All of these have a common denominator: fast action for restoration services can lessen the loss.

The unfortunate side of water damage in Somerset homes is during the cleanup; some controlled demolition actions are sometimes necessary. Frequently seen in water loss situations are:

  • Tile delamination requiring removal
  • Collection of fiberglass insulation for possible reuse
  • Specialized extraction heads used on wet carpet and padding
  • Removal of a portion of sheetrock that has wicked water
  • Water migration within walls and subflooring

Advanced Equipment for Moisture Detection

Finding the paths of the water loss took within the home is crucial to avoiding secondary issues. SERVPRO technicians use state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment to locate and extract any place in the house that water travels.

Drying for Special Situations

When SERVPRO technicians move to the drying phase of the restoration service, it is a lot more than setting up fans and hoping for the best. Measurements get taken of the ambient interior humidity and indoor air moisture levels to determine drying goals. This process receives monitoring to ensure the attainment of pre-set aims.

Air movers push air over surfaces with great velocity; it causes moisture to rise where the dehumidification equipment captures it. For wall cavities opened for drying, devices such as the Injecti-Dry system pushes warm air into the area. The use of drying mats assists in the removal of moisture from hardwood flooring, saving property owners the cost of replacement.

To return the home to its pre-water loss condition, SERVPRO offers reconstruction services through general contractor license #13VH06622700. Whether it is replacing damaged sheetrock, installation of tile or insulation, painting, or other needed task, the certified technicians make it happen.
