Water Damage Cleanup Involves Many Steps

Enfield continues to grow as one of the larger communities in Hartford County, with more than 42,000 residents from its humble start in 1679. Even more than in the past, homes are susceptible to damages and emergencies related to water in their properties. As a leading restoration outfit serving the county, SERVPRO of Bloomfield / Enfield can work quickly to help with needed restoration solutions like:

With Enfield water damage, our professionals need to respond quickly to help. We recognize the urgency of these disasters and have trained technicians available 24/7 to respond. Our Green Fleet of service vehicles stays stocked with needed equipment to help with mitigation and emergency services, such as extractors, demolition tools, and packing materials.

How Does Water Damage Happen?

The modern home has many ways that water and moisture damage occur, and property owners should be aware of these potential issues. Understanding the scope of the damage water can cause is a focus of the inspection SERVPRO professionals conduct to focus on restoration efforts yet to begin. Common causes of water emergencies in the home are:

  • Plumbing Issues – From breaks in the lines to damaged fixtures that steadily leak through wall systems and cabinets, plumbing is a common culprit for needed water restoration services.
  • Appliances – Water-fed appliances are more common than ever in homes, ranging from washing machines to dishwashers and refrigerators. Leaks from these units can spread fast and cover a wide area, making a fast response vital.
  • Flooding – Flood damage is common in Connecticut homes, especially those knowingly living at lower elevations. Flash floods or rising creeks and streams could infiltrate basements and cellars to affect the house.
  • Spills/Accidents – Human error accounts for a substantial volume of water damage restoration callout requests SERVPRO manages, from overflowing sinks and tubs to dozens of other possible scenarios.

Clearing Pooling Water from Flooring

When standing water is a concern for your residence, many exposed materials can be at risk. Our restoration team's most glaring mitigation obstacle is removing pooling from floors, which requires multiple extractors. We rely on trash pumps and submersibles for deep water removal to reach a shallow depth where wet vacuums are more suitable choices.

Removing Water Trapped in Materials

However, surface pooling is only part of the water damage obstacles for SERVPRO professionals. Specialty extractors and drying equipment is needed to pull moisture caught in flooring materials and structural cavities. Weighted extractors and carpet wands are essential for certain flooring types, while drying mats are effective with semi-porous installations like planks.

How Do You Achieve Thorough Drying?

Every restoration project involving water requires drying measures. The more widespread and involved the disaster, the more drying required. Centrifugal and axial air movers are at the heart of this mission, evaporating surface water into humidity for collection by placed dehumidifiers. We also account for the successes of drying measures by tracking moisture with tools like:

  • Detection devices
  • Thermal imagery
  • Moisture sensors

Are Damage Repairs Necessary?

Our general contractor license (0646584) allows many of the build-back services and repairs your home might need after water exposure. Often, homeowners are at a loss for securing additional contractors while restoration work is underway, and with SERVPRO, you do not have to. We seamlessly transition from cleanup to reconstruction to make water disasters in your residence "Like it never even happened."
