Water Damage? 4 Reasons To Hire A Professional
When your home or commercial property is subjected to water damage you need to act fast to limit that damage and restore your property. Excessive standing water can pose health hazards, ruin valuable property, damage furniture and art, and weaken the structural integrity of your home or business. We recommend you secure professional water removal services. In Connecticut, here are four reasons why you should depend on professionals like SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield:
1. Stop Dangerous Bacterial Growth
Standing or slowly dripping water attracts microorganisms. These forms of bacteria can breed very quickly. Moisture is the driving force allowing growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria.

2. What Looks Dry May Not Be Dry
You may not be safe even after the visible water is removed. Furnishings and buildings can soak in and retain excessive levels of moisture. That promotes microorganism development and fungi growth, even when you don’t see any water. SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield uses a professional drying process that includes specialized air movers and dehumidifiers. It’s a surer, more thorough, and faster way to remove water and moisture. We continue the drying process until moisture measurement inspections indicate the ambient air humidity is back to normal.
3. Salvage Your Possessions
Materials and furniture exposed to excessive water must be carefully evaluated. A SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield professional can evaluate and explain to you what’s safe to keep and what must be discarded. We use a proprietary software technology called CCIS to inventory each room. We list categories of not-salvageable, salvageable, and questionable items and materials for you and your insurance adjuster. Then you can decide how to proceed with your water damage restoration process. We strongly believe in a "restore before replace" philosophy to keep your costs down and to salvage as much as possible.
4. Protect Your Safety
Attempting to remedy water damaged possessions and materials on your own can cause physical stress and unwanted, unknown exposure to health hazards such as category 3 water. Safety clothing, gear, equipment, and know-how are essential aspects leading to a safe and effective water damage restoration process.
