Staten Island Homes Get Much Needed Water Damage Repair
Water Damage Repair Helps Staten Island Residents
Following severe weather in Staten Island that impacts local homes, remediation services arrive to treat interior surfaces fouled by stormwater. These efforts employ different methods, which depend on the kind of water, type of material, and level of damage involved. Some materials are removed from the residence, while others are wiped, vacuumed, refinished, repainted, and treated with strong disinfectants. Knowing how to deal with each particular situation most effectively saves time and money in the long run.
SERVPRO’s water damage repair technicians in Staten Island have been extensively trained in the restoration techniques necessary for restoring different kinds of water damage. We have successfully rehabilitated homes suffering from severe, storm-related ceiling leaks, basement flooding biohazard remediation issues, and those in need of extensive flood restoration measures. In order to develop the best plan of action for restoring your residence, company experts determine the following once they are on-site:
- The category or categories of water impacting your home – Is the water damaging your property clean rainwater from a ceiling, window, pipe, or foundation leak? Did it come from contaminated “black water” from floodwater or otherwise fouled water?
- Material types of affected structural elements and household contents – Are water-damaged materials porous (like drywall, wooden or concrete flooring, and carpeting), semi-porous (such as varnished wood and certain types of plastic), or non-porous (like metal, ceramics, and glass)?
- How severely structural elements and furnishings have been damaged – How long has the material been in contact with water? Is the harm resulting from increased airborne moisture levels? Is anything salvageable?
That said, it is important to note that carpeting and contents generally cannot be saved if floodwaters contaminate them. Also, porous and semi-porous materials are more susceptible to moisture and difficult to save than their non-porous counterparts.
