Contact SERVPRO for Flood Damage Restoration and Repair in Liverpool

Flooding caused by a storm can do a lot of damage to Liverpool homes and businesses quickly. Rainwater streams in through broken windows or holes in the roof. Floodwaters can also fill your home fast with debris, silt, and muddy water full of contaminated materials. Flood damage can be extensive, or it may not seem obvious at first if it is just rainwater coming in through the windows.

SERVPRO can help clean up after a storm, complete repairs from flood damage to your Liverpool home. We provide board-up services to cover all broken windows and doors, holes in the siding caused by flying debris, and tarps to protect the roof if it has been compromised. We deploy high-capacity pumps, weighted water extractors, air movers, and dehumidifiers to dry your home fully. Everything is cleaned and sanitized to remove any chemical, biological, bacteria, and viruses that may have been carried in with the floodwaters.

In addition, we check the inside of the interior and exterior walls. Exterior walls have a vapor barrier to prevent moisture from passing through. Compromised siding may have allowed water into the wall space between the vapor barrier and the insulation. Long-term secondary damage can occur if this moisture is not removed, and mold can grow inside the walls.

Vinyl wallpaper also acts as a vapor barrier. While it stops moisture from getting inside a wall cavity, it also prevents moisture from exiting the cavity during the drying process. We use moisture sensors to check for high moisture levels inside exterior and interior walls and take appropriate action to dry the area.

Our services at SERVPRO include:

  • Emergency flood damage response, repair, and restoration
  • High-capacity water removal and drying
  • Complete house cleanup and sanitation

Fast Water Mitigation in Homes by SERVPRO Reduces Secondary Damage to Homes in North Syracuse

Most North Syracuse residents focus on removing water after a water leak in their North Syracuse homes. They also make arrangements to repair the leak to avoid additional water leaking from the plumbing or overflowing from a bathroom or kitchen sink. However, after the water is mopped up, there can still be many gallons of water soaking carpets and under padding, inside cavities in walls or under cupboards, and hidden inside ceilings causing secondary damage.

SERVPRO provides water mitigation services in North Syracuse to remove water in these areas, reduce the humidity levels, and reduce the amount of secondary water damage. High humidity and water in these spaces, along with wet carpets, can lead to pressed wood products found in subfloors and cupboards absorbing moisture, expanding, and losing structural integrity. Hardwood floors can cup or buckle, requiring replacement or extensive repairs. Mold is also a potential issue. Mold colonies can become established in as little as 24 to 72 hours, and mold can cause health effects.

SERVPRO utilizes sophisticated tools to detect water and high moisture content in difficult-to-reach areas and remove water and reduce humidity to dry your home’s structure and contents. Our services include:

  • Deployment of weighted water extractors on carpeted floors
  • Hardwood floor drying mats to remove water from between the hardwood planks
  • Moisture detection devices to verify thorough drying inside walls and cavities under cupboards
  • Air movers and dehumidifiers positioned and monitored to dry your home

Our fast response in less than four hours from your call and deployment of highly trained technicians who utilize state-of-the-art equipment can help avoid secondary damage to structural components in your home.

The type of water damage your Liverpool property has will also be considered as we select the proper water removal services and drying method. The three main categories of water include:

  • Category 1 – This is clean water from a source like a faucet or incoming water pipe.
  • Category 2 – This water may have started as category one but came into contact with contaminants. This category is often called gray water.

SERVPRO Fire Restoration Technicians Can Return your North Syracuse Property to a Safe and Secure Condition

Particulate contamination is one of the adverse effects of a recent property fire. Particulates, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), describe the microscopic toxins, dust, and soot released from burning materials. With many common household materials having increasingly complex ingredients, the risk of particulate contamination is higher. Natural, organic material such as cotton, for example, leaves behind a relatively low-impact carbon dry soot. Polyester, one of the more commonly used materials for home draperies or fabrics, is built from a synthetic polymer and can release toxic particulates or VOCs into the indoor environment. SERVPRO can help with:

  • Fire damaged homes
  • Smoke remediation
  • Fire and smoke damage restoration and cleanup

Conducting fire restoration in North Syracuse is a process of returning the home to a safe condition as it was before the fire. Managing particulate contamination is an essential part of this process. High pressure in a fire can lead to particulates bonding with or absorbing into clothing, draperies, fabrics, and mattresses. We have several methods that can help to decontaminate these materials before returning them to your home smoke, odor, and particulate-free. 

  • Exposure to ozone gases can break down organic and volatile compounds quickly through the process of oxidization. This technique is very useful for deep sanitizing clothing or fabrics exposed to fire gases. 
  • Professional-grade dry cleaning can help restore expensive natural fabrics, often employing solvents to break down or pair with particulates. 
  • Mechanical cleaning uses Esporta washing machines to suspend fabrics, while rotary jets apply natural wet cleaning to the fabric's surface. Automatic cleaning is capable of removing 99% of contaminants from cloth. 

Tackling fire impact can be tough without access to professional-grade equipment and products. Contact SERVPRO of North Onondaga County for fire restoration at (315) 457-3432.

Can Water Mitigation in a Liverpool Home Reduce Damages and Prevent Losses?

SERVPRO Technicians in Liverpool are Experts at Water Mitigation for Residential Properties

Water mitigation is the process of reducing potential losses in a home that has suffered a recent water intrusion event. Water intrusion can occur from internal plumbing problems, structural deficiencies, condensation or humidity damages, and natural disasters. There is a real risk of permanent damage arising in a property that is wet, which is why we consider it essential that you seek out professional assistance for:

The most important part of water mitigation for your Liverpool home is extraction and stripping. Extraction uses motorized suction equipment to transport high volumes of water out of the property and is essential for reducing the standing water level. Stripping a property refers to removing wet materials, including draperies, furniture, fittings, and upholstery. Wet contents generally require specific drying actions. Leaving them inside a damp structure can complicate the drying process as moisture raises humidity and potentially causes condensation damage or vapor damages. There are three main methods for drying a system. These include:

  • Natural drying, otherwise known as an open-drying system. This method relies on natural ventilation by opening windows or doors but is relatively inefficient and weather-dependent.
  • Convection drying relies on the use of temperature to speed up drying times and high-velocity air movement. Convection drying requires the service or hire of professional drying equipment. 
  • Dehumidification relies on a closed-drying system and can be combined with convection drying for the best results. 

If your home suffers water intrusion, contact SERVPRO of North Onondaga County for water mitigation at (315) 457-3432.
