SERVPRO Probes and Resolves Water Damage in Mahopac

Water can cause untold misery at your Mahopac property by physically destroying things, creating hazards, or inconveniencing you. Many dire water damage outcomes develop because of an inadequate or mismanaged response. You need to choose a water removal approach keenly or seek the assistance of an experienced service provider like SERVPRO.

Water removal helps your Mahopac property by limiting the eventual water damage level. Water damage refers to any physical changes that develop on materials after contact with water. The changes can be mild such as item discoloring when dyes bleed out, or severe such as warping and cracking of solid wood materials. 

Critical water removal actions:

  • Identifying and stopping sources
  • Faster extraction
  • Sustained humidity control 

You can only remove water successfully from your home after addressing the active sources. Common ways that water finds its way into homes are through damaged roof shingles, pipe leaks, and malfunctioning appliances or utilities. Any of these sources may be in a hidden location, thus resupplying any water that you extract. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect your property to identify sources and use specialized equipment, such as thermal cameras, which reveal any concealed sources. 

Successful Water Removal

Speed and thoroughness are the main aspects that determine the success of the removal process. Letting water sit in a property longer allows deeper penetration in materials, making it harder to reach or causing entrenched damages. There are many ways to remove intruding water, including mopping or soaking it with towels. Our SERVPRO crews mostly use vacuum extraction methods, which are faster since we have a wide range of extraction equipment.

Helpful extraction equipment:

  • Dry/wet vacuums
  • Portable extractors
  • Truck-mounted extractors

Water changes form after intruding into a property. Therefore a thorough removal must address all its forms, including the humidity build-up in the air as the spilled water evaporates. Our crews set up dehumidifiers to help extract moisture from the air as we remove water from your property.
