Clean Up Water Damage in Your Bloomfield Home the Right Way

8/11/2021 (Permalink)

Raindrops fall in a town Even if you have just a little water damage in your Bloomfield home, you need to get everything completely dried and dehumidified—and it's not easy.

Small or large, water damage in your Bloomfield house needs to be taken seriously. Puddles or flood, it’s a genuine emergency that can end up costing you thousands of dollars. The problem is, the job is not as simple as mopping up the water and hoping it dries.

It’s not just the water you see on the floor that’s the problem; it’s also the moisture. Your floors, floor coverings, walls, furnishings and possessions all need to be 100% dried out. That’s not something you can necessarily do by yourself. And if you try, will you be sure all the moisture is removed? If not, you can suffer more structural damage, lingering odors and the very real potential for a serious mold infestation.

A professional water damage remediation company like SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield will bring your home and property back to before-damage condition. SERVPRO has the people, tools and experience to do the job the right way.

Removing the Water

SERVPRO brings in our powerful pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units to quickly remove the majority of water from your property—sometimes, hundreds or thousands of gallons! Depending on how much water needs to be removed, we may use powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial wet/dry vacuums. 

Among the other tools and equipment we use to remove the water from your Bloomfield home are:

  • Moisture detectors, hygrometers and other meters to measure the degree of saturation
  • Infrared cameras that can detect water lurking behind walls and ceilings

It’s important that water removal be done thoroughly, which will speed up the next step, drying and dehumidifying. 

Drying Your Property

Even the best water extraction equipment cannot remove all the moisture in floors and walls that have been soaked. Because nearly all building materials (such as wood, drywall and flooring materials) are porous, they absorb water, and that can cause them to swell, warp, degrade or become infested with mold.

The SERVPRO crew measures square footage, temperature and humidity levels to calculate how many air movers and dehumidifiers are needed to dry your home. Then we bring our best equipment to bear on restoring your home:

  • Industrial-grade dehumidifiers to help prevent secondary water damage (swelling and warping)
  • High-speed air movers to create airflow that accelerates the evaporation of moisture

We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until everything is sufficiently dried and dehumidified.

Meanwhile, SERVPRO dries, cleans and deodorizes your furnishings and personal possessions. When everything is fully restored, we return your property to your home, leaving you with no traces of the water disaster!
