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.
