Avoiding Structural Hazards in Hyde Park Homes After Water Loss

Structural hazards are a considerable risk addressed by our SERVPRO professionals when recovering water loss incidents in Hyde Park homes. The faster that moisture and dampness concerned can get managed, the less critical this structural degradation and deterioration becomes. We have premier equipment to help us gauge the presence of moisture in structural elements and address the removal of this water before these materials become too severely damaged to preserve.

Among the chief structural hazards that exist after loss incidents, weakened flooring and ceilings can often follow a need for water removal in Hyde Park residences. Addressing the likelihood that these materials have become too compromised to protect is part of the initial scoping of the work to get done. While many of the structural elements and materials cannot get fully assessed and inspected until extraction and drying are complete, an assessment of these risks helps to keep our technicians and occupants of the house safe when restoration work begins.

We have cutting-edge probing and surface moisture detection equipment to determine the presence of damp insulation and framing in wall and ceiling cavities. Because ceiling tiles are not designed to support weight loads, even saturated insulation can become too heavy to hold. In the most concentrated water loss areas, ceiling materials might already give way before our SERVPRO team arrives at the residence.

Insulation vacuums and controlled demolition practices can help to address these wet areas. Once the wet materials and debris have gotten removed, we can direct airflow to these areas with centrifugal air movers to evaporate lingering moisture and dry out any ceiling materials not too severely damaged to protect. In some cases, allowing the ceiling cavity to drain can be an excellent start to drying out this soaked space.

As restoration professionals, our SERVPRO of NW & SE Dutchess County team can work to reduce the likelihood of structural failure through calculated water removal, drying, and controlled demolition practices. Give our team a call anytime that you need us at (845) 635-4550.
