Priorities of Water Damage Restoration
Our SERVPRO of Great Neck / Port Washington team must prioritize several restorative and mitigative actions beginning as soon as our response team arrives. With a consistent and focused progression through these phases, we can return properties to their preloss condition in reasonable timelines:
Water removal services are a critical element of the mitigation process. Any standing water concerns become threatening presences to the exposed building materials involved, especially porous construction like carpets, drywall, and more. Pooling can be removed using several devices from our inventory, ranging in selected use by the depth of the damage and where trapped water exists. This can include:
- Submersible Pumps
- Wet Vacuums
- Carpet Wands
Drying is a necessary element of every water restoration process. Removing moisture is vital to the recovery of a household because lingering damp pockets and water caches in wall systems or on surface materials can support secondary damages like mold development or structural degradation. Evaporation and moisture content removal involves several specific devices from our stock, including:
- Air Movers
These machines introduce focused airflow across moist surfaces and within damp environments. There are several types capable of managing specific conditions like low-profile centrifugal options.
- Heating Units
Warming materials and the drying areas help amplify the production of evaporation and other needed chemical processes used for moisture removal, cleaning, and deodorization.
Evaporation increases water vapor in the environment, requiring several dehumidification units to be placed on the property to help. These machines act through condensation and absorption to lower humidity to acceptable parameters.
- Drying Mats
Trapped water in materials like hardwood and engineered wood flooring requires special drying tools to remove moisture through capillary suction.
Cleaning up after a water damage issue involves the elimination of residues, microbes, and bacteria that might form on surfaces after prolonged water exposure. We must also present a suitable solution for deep cleaning carpeting throughout a property, as these fibrous flooring options can be heavily soiled.
Moisture continues to more than the destruction of exposed building materials. Damp conditions facilitate mold colonization and organism growth. There are early actions to be taken to help reduce, remove, and remediate mold damage, such as:
- Antimicrobial Products – Sporicidal and biocide sprays and solutions eradicate mold organisms and spores on contact.
- Managing Moisture – SERVPRO works to ensure water damage is resolved quickly to prevent lingering moisture that facilitates growth. We can also rebuild and repair vulnerabilities that allow recurring water infiltration.
- Third-Party Inspections and Testing – Third-party professionals can inspect and document impacted areas to identify if mold exists and the appropriate response of remediation professionals like our team to help.
Great Neck water damage incidents require fast and deliberate actions from trained professionals like our SERVPRO of Great Neck / Port Washington team. We are ready to help 24/7 at (516) 767-9600.
