SERVPRO Provides Water Damage Mitigation in Liverpool

Water leaks can occur anytime in homes in Liverpool from broken pipes, overflowing sinks and tubs, and blocked drains. When a water line in a ceiling springs a leak, the subsequent damage to ceiling tiles or drywall can be extensive. The ceiling may even collapse, spreading water across the room below and damaging flooring materials and the contents in the room.

SERVPRO provides water damage restoration and mitigation services to homeowners in Liverpool. We respond within four hours of your call to assess the situation and mitigate additional damage from the water leak. Once a leak is detected, homeowners should immediately turn off the main water valve to limit further water spread. Keep away from sagging ceiling tiles and drywall. The weight of the water in the ceiling could cause the entire ceiling to collapse.

Our team carefully removes water from the ceiling by puncturing the ceiling tiles or drywall to release any water. Waterlogged ceiling tiles and drywall are removed to expose leaking plumbing and damp ceiling structures.

We employ water extractors to remove water from flooring materials. Weighted water extractors are used on carpets and underpads to prevent delamination of the carpet and damage to the subfloor.

Drying mats are used on hardwood floors to prevent water absorption, causing swelling of the wood leading to buckling and cupping of the hardwood floor planks. We use dehumidifiers and air movers to reduce the humidity in the affected spaces and dry the contents and structure in the room.

Our services provided by SERVPRO include:

  • Water damage remediation
  • Water removal and cleanup
  • Water damage restoration

Can Homeowners Prevent Frozen Pipes and Ice Damming in North Syracuse?

icicles hanging off of the gutters and pipes of a house Frozen pipes and ice damming can leave large amounts of excess water in your home. Our technicians are standing by 24/7 - 365 days a year.

SERVPRO Provides Water Removal Services Caused by Frozen Pipes in North Syracuse.

If you have previously had frozen pipes and ice damming problems in North Syracuse, you already know how much damage is caused when water pipes freeze and split. Once they thaw, water runs everywhere, often from inside an exterior wall and into the home's main living areas or the basement. Preventing water lines from freezing in the first place eliminates the potential for extensive water damage.

SERVPRO provides frozen pipes and ice damming cleanup services in North Syracuse. If water pipes have frozen and thawed, releasing a torrent of water inside your home, our water removal technicians can help with water cleanup and drying all of the structure and contents. Our fast response to your call limits the amount of water and reduces the damage caused by the water. Ice dams can also cause water to leak into your home through the roof and into the attic insulation. Water then travels into the main areas of the house.

Homeowners can prevent ice dams by removing snow from the roof using a snow rake attached to a long pole to avoid climbing onto the roof. Add insulation in the attic to reduce heat escaping into the attic, which melts snow even during cold snaps.

Keep pipes warm by turning up the temperature in your home for a few days when there is a cold snap. Insulate the water lines using foam rubber insulation or use heating tape wrapped around pipes susceptible to freezing. Don't forget to heat the drain lines as well. Allowing the water to run from water taps slowly can also prevent water lines from freezing. While you may use more energy and water to avoid frozen pipes, the cost is minuscule compared to the damage leaking pipes can cause.

SERVPRO provides the following services when you have a water incident in your home:

  • Water cleanup
  • Water removal services
  • Water damage remediation

SERVPRO Provides Commercial Emergency Services Water Removal in North Syracuse

Whether it is a water leak from a broken pipe in the unit next door or the ceiling of your business unit, your North Syracuse commercial building operations come to a standstill until the water can be removed. The pipes must be repaired and everything dried. Your employees may not perform their normal duties, and suppliers cannot enter the building for deliveries. Alternate arrangements for your customers must also be arranged until operations return to normal.

SERVPRO understands the impact of any delays in water damage repairs to your North Syracuse commercial building. That’s why we respond in less than four hours from your call with the required team members and equipment to begin recovery, repair and control the water to limit further damage to your building and contents.

Unless the water is removed immediately, carpets can delaminate, wood products absorb moisture, and begin to swell. Many wood furniture items are made from particle board with a thin wood veneer to provide a finished look. Once they expand, these items cannot be repaired and lose structural integrity. Hardwood floors also absorb moisture and can swell, causing buckling and cupping.

SERVPRO technicians deploy:

  • Emergency services water mitigation techniques are applied to control the damage
  • Water extractors to remove excess water
  • To perform water damage repairs

We aim to return your commercial business to normal operations as fast as possible and avoid additional damage caused by standing water.

SERVPRO Provides Fire Damage Restoration and Repair Services in North Syracuse

Even small fires can produce a great deal of smoke and residue that coats everything in the immediate area of the fire. While the actual fire may not cause significant damage, cleaning smoke residues can be time-consuming. Residue from grease fires that produce oily residues vs. hot fires that produce light soot and dust must be cleaned carefully with the correct cleaning agents and materials.

SERVPRO provides fire damage restoration and smoke residue cleaning in North Syracuse residents. We cover everything from demolition and removal, cleaning and drying, to restoration and repair for fires of all sizes and types. Every fire is different, and the damage and restoration activity must be assessed and planned to ensure all expenses are kept to a minimum while restoring your home as fast as possible.

SERVPRO uses appropriate cleaning methods for each type of fire and smoke residue

  • Dusting cloths dry or treated with mineral oil can be used to remove light soot and dust.
  • Dry cleaning sponges can be used to remove loose soils, especially on dry smoke residues; however, they are not effective with greasy smoke residues causing smearing across the item's surface to be cleaned.
  • Clean white towels are used to apply wet cleaning solutions and help to prevent streaking. They absorb and remove soils and moisture from the surface of the material being cleaned.

These are just a sample of the cleaning methods used by SERVPRO to remove smoke residues in your home. We analyze the type of fire, the residue produced, and we apply the appropriate cleaning method to return your home to its original condition, "Like it never even happened."

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.

Contacting SERVPRO for Water Damage Mitigation Lessens Damage and Costs in Liverpool

While you may not think about it happening, water damage remains to be one of the more common and often destructive issues that homeowners face. It would be best if you addressed the fallout fast whenever you have leaking faucets or burst pipes in your home. Failing to act immediately might lead to excess water bringing on expensive damage, electrical hazards, and potentially harmful mold and mildew growth. Proper mitigation with the help of water restoration technicians (WRT) from SERVPRO gets you the results you deserve!

What is water damage mitigation in Liverpool, and why do you need it? Essentially speaking, water mitigation is the best approach to help prevent the onset of secondary damage. Mitigation prevents water saturation from impacting various building materials. Mitigation includes drying multiple areas to avoid degradation and mold growth, including:

  • Framework
  • Beams
  • Flooring
  • Drywall
  • Ceiling tiles

When you have standing water, our extraction crew gets to work with powerful pumps to pull up as much water as possible. Damaged contents may also be packed out for further drying or restoration. We also take the time to select our processes and equipment to better achieve our goals. This includes adjusting as we work to get the best possible result. 

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. 
  • Category 3 – This is contaminated water from flooding, toilets overflowing, and other questionable sources. This category is known as black water.
