Entrust the Water Damage Restoration of your Manhasset Home to SERVPRO

Burst pipes and ceiling leaks can cause severe water damage in a Manhasset home, and it is not uncommon for homeowners to be unaware of the issue until it escalates. When water damage repairs are needed, relying on family and friends for help is not enough. Instead, call a professionally certified crew of experts to assess the situation and help establish a course of action and mitigate the damage.

In Manhasset, where water damage can happen due to weather factors and some homes' age, SERVPRO is ready to help. Close to Manhattan, many of the families who live in town take advantage of public transportation to commute to their jobs in the city. However, they get to enjoy the numerous green spaces available for leisure once they return home. Munsey Park, Shelter Rock, and North Hills all invite residents and visitors to enjoy the outdoors.

Not surprisingly, homeowners in Manhasset would rather spend their time in one of the town’s notable shopping areas instead of navigating the intricacies of water damage restoration. 

Restoration can be achieved by calling SERVPRO and letting us take charge. Our staff is ready around the clock to meet your water clean-up needs by applying the latest best practices in our industry. When our fleet arrives, you can see for yourself that our equipment is suited for jobs of all sizes, including the extraction of water in large volumes as well as smaller amounts. Furthermore, the careful documentation we keep can be helpful when communicating with your insurance company.

Addressing Floors with Water Damage

It is not surprising that water settles on flooring materials whenever a pipe bursts or there is a leaking roof. Our first instinct may be to rent a heavy-duty wet-dry vacuum and extract any standing water. As sensible as this seems, extraction is not enough. At SERVPRO, we have specialized equipment such as drying mats, handheld extractor wands, and injecti-dry devices to restore your floors and carpet while maintaining a balanced humidity level. Some of the risks for your floors when there is excess moisture include-

  • Delamination- when water causes the backing of your carpet to separate, that is called delamination. The latex that holds your flooring material's primary and secondary backing deteriorates significantly in water incidents, especially if it is of poor quality. Improper extraction or folding of the carpet can also cause delamination.
  • Compromised Padding- padding may break when wet, making its replacement both necessary and cost-efficient. When our SERVPRO crew looks at the padding, we can make a recommendation based on our expertise. The average homeowner or repair person may not realize the extent of the issue because they lack the proper equipment to gauge the saturation level.
  • Warping- tile floors may appear dry if the grout and joints were installed correctly. However, even a tiny crack in a tile or grouting may allow the subfloor to soak up water and eventually loosen up the tiles and joints. Our staff monitors moisture in the floor continuously to assess the drying process's progress and avoid complications.

SERVPRO of Great Neck/Port Washington provides much more than drying solutions. We leverage technology to restore your home, even the areas you did not think had been affected. Call us at (516) 767-9600 for a comprehensive assessment of your needs.
