SERVPRO Prevents Water Damage to Your Glen Cove Home

Water damage in a Glen Cove house can be disastrous, especially if left unchecked. Small leaks can quickly escalate, causing extensive water damage to your property. Removing the water fast is one of the most crucial steps after a leak.

It is essential to address any resulting water damage promptly, focusing on all areas that have been affected. The process is best handled by trained professionals who understand the proper procedures for removing the water and drying out affected areas. SERVPRO crews have the skills to adequately address water damage and restore affected areas. Our teams are certified in water damage restoration and trained to use specialized equipment and techniques to remove water from affected areas.

Some key areas to prioritize during the water removal process:

  • Cavities like walls and ceilings
  • Horizontal surfaces like floors
  • Porous items like furniture and carpets
  • Vulnerable materials like drapes and clothing

Water Cleanup Resource

One of the first steps in the water removal process is to extract any standing water. This may include water pooling on your home's floors, carpets, or other surfaces. Our guiding principle is that the more water we remove with extraction tools, the less time we spend evaporating and dehumidifying the remaining moisture with drying equipment.

Standard tools for rapid water removal:

  • Portable units
  • Large truck-mounted units
  • Wet/dry vacuums
  • Light- wands
  • Deep extraction tools like self-propelled extraction tools

When removing water from floors and ceilings, we check joists. If they are not adequately dried after being exposed to moisture, they begin to rot and swell, and the nails may become loose. SERVPRO crews remedy the situation by thoroughly dehumidifying and effectively drying the joists and beams.
