How Can I Restore My Lockport Shop After a Plumbing Leak?

Breaks and leaks in your plumbing network can often damage ceiling systems and other exposed areas of your shop, but our SERVPRO team has the experience to help. 

Broken seals and damaged washers/gaskets around fittings of the plumbing system in your Lockport shop are not uncommon occurrences. Because much of the plumbing network is stowed neatly away above the ceiling, a minor leak could go unnoticed for several days before saturating enough of the ceiling system to reach the visible surface layer.

Restoring water damage in your Lockport boutique involves multiple approaches and sophisticated tools. Repairs and recovery must get started right away, as the leak can continue to penetrate materials and spread until it gets substantially worse. Ceiling materials are often the most directly affected initially from a leak. Repairing these areas quickly can often reduce or prevent the migration of water to the trafficked regions for the rest of the store.

How Can Structural Cavities Get Dried?

Once leak detection measures like audio equipment and thermal imagery have directed our technicians to the appropriate location for a break or breach in the plumbing, controlled demolition efforts can begin to expose the damage to allow for repairs. Drying the involved materials and the structural cavities involves multiple advanced tools and approaches, including:

  • Positive Pressure Systems
  • Negative Pressure Systems 
  • Centrifugal Air Movers
  • Desiccant Dehumidifiers 
  • Controlled Demolition
