When Water Damages Your Lewiston, NY Property Who Do You Call?
Water damage repair and restoration services are almost always essential after water damages your property. This can be especially true if you know of building materials such as drywall, flooring or carpets that have taken on water and are already damp with moisture. This is because extracting this water from these materials must be done quickly and throughly, if not, it is inevitable that mold growth will begin to occur shortly afterwards. The same can be said for furniture and cabinetry/particle board materials that easily absorb water. When you call our SERVPRO office our first goal is to help you save those wet materials and items. Our technicians will arrive quickly, usually within 2 hours of your initial call if they decide that doing so will potentially help you save money and avoid demolition/trashing of the wet materials. We will arrive with the equipment needed to immediately begin drying services and will work directly with your insurance provider so that all actions are transparent, documented and, most likely, covered by your property owners policy.
In these first few hours of arrival we will work diligently to remove all standing water and to extract moisture for the air and from expensive building materials such as hardwood and laminate flooring. For less expensive building materials such as drywall, insulation, and carpets, we may decide that removing the water-logged portions of the material will ultimately allow us to remove moisture from the property more quickly saving you the stress and headaches of mold growth that is unstoppable when so much moisture is present indoors.
Once the property is cleared of the excess water we then extract water from the air using a variety of equipment placed and designed to most efficiently get water out and to return the property to normal humidity levels so that reconstruction can begin.
If you experience water damage in your residential or commercial property do not wait until it is too late, call us immediately.
