Simple Water Restoration by SERVPRO in Upper West Side

Water is one of the essential utilities in most business premises. A problem as simple as a pinhole leak or as advanced as root intrusion affecting plumbing lines can turn water into an enemy that destroys your Upper West Side property or creates uninhabitable conditions for your staff or clients. 

After discovering the intrusion, you should prioritize actions that help facilitate water mitigation at your Upper West Side property or stop the subsequent deterioration. SERVPRO helps establish the best course of action by thoroughly inspecting the affected areas.

Three Simple Mitigation Processes:

  • Move outs
  • Humidity control
  • Expediting extraction

The effects of the intruding water can be concentrated on structural areas or contents, especially stock items, furniture, and appliances. For the contents, one quick mitigation solution is doing a move-out. Our SERVPRO crews can do a pack-out or a complete move-out to an offsite warehouse, thus safeguarding your contents from moisture exposure. Our specialized skills in inventory-taking and packing not only ensure convenience but also prevent damage to valuables during relocation.

Controlling Moisture

Most negative effects like rusting, staining, or smells observed in materials are caused by moisture action. Moisture triggers microbial growth or physical changes such as swelling and accelerates material deterioration. Regulating moisture minimizes wear. Extracting any standing water from surfaces is the most recognizable regulation process. However, it is crucial to note that humidity exists in different forms, including vapor in the indoor air. 

Essential Tips for Dehumidification:

  • Balancing the number of air movers and dehumidifiers 
  • Creating containment to isolate affected areas
  • Using the right dehumidifier type

Our SERVPRO crews set up air movers to help supply sufficient air currents. The air movement boosts evaporation to dry materials faster. Since the evaporating moisture ends up in the air, dehumidifiers are necessary to extract and maintain the correct humidity levels. We can also set up plastic sheets on openings such as doors and hallways to limit humid air movement.
