What does water damage restoration involve?

Over the years, we have been in business, we have restored thousands of properties to their pre-damage condition with success. Depending on the severity of the water loss incident in your home, our restoration process may involve the following: 

  • Thorough inspection
  • Water extraction
  • Drying and dehumidification
  • Deodorization
  • Rebuilding affected areas

How do you identify where the water went?

During the restoration process, we use our advanced equipment to leave no detail behind. Our technicians can use penetrating moisture meters to get the exact moisture readings in porous surfaces such as carpet and pad.

We also take moisture and humidity readings regularly during the restoration process using equipment such as thermal imaging cameras, and moisture sensors to get a clear picture of the effectiveness of our drying process. If we suspect water seeped in cavities that can be costly to repair if we demolish them, we can use borescopes to check for contamination. 

How do you dry porous surfaces?

SERVPRO technicians can use various drying dehumidifying procedures depending on the severity of the water intrusion. We use air moving equipment to increase air circulation in a home. This equipment helps increase the rate of evaporation in the affected areas. Our team can then use a low grain refrigerant dehumidifier to dry your home. The machine lowers the moisture levels in the air and surfaces of the affected property to the lowest level possible. It can take a few days to restore your property after water damage. 

Even a slight amount of water can cause significant damage to your house. Call SERVPRO of NW & SE Dutchess County at (845) 635-4550 for prompt water removal services. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
