What Complicates Cleanup During Water Restoration of Riverhead Properties?
SERVPRO Scrutinizes Damaged Property to Establish Obstacles That Might Hamper Restoration
Considering how crucial water is in maintaining sanitary conditions at your workplace, you might expect a speedy conclusion to an incident whereby clean water leaks and spreads into unwanted areas of your Riverhead premises. However, you might experience challenges cleaning up and restoring your property to its preloss state, primarily if you do not involve experienced work crews.
Cleanup as part of water restoration at your Riverhead workplace can evolve from a simple extraction of water pooling on surfaces and drying of soaked materials to other complicated processes. Various obstacles can hamper what would be otherwise simple removal. One way our SERVPRO teams help is by pinpointing such obstacles early, guaranteeing convenience later on in the process.
Common issues that hinder water removal or cleanup processes include:
- Bulky contents standing in the way
- A significant percentage of porous and semi-porous materials at the loss site
- Significant volumes of spilled water
Water readily spreads everywhere, including beneath bulky and heavy contents such as furniture and appliances. Removing the water trapped under such items is crucial since leaving the moisture in place can fuel mold growth or cause a foul odor. Our SERVPRO crews can readily pack out the items to pave the way for cleanup. Apart from human resources, we also have handy equipment such as dollys and heavy-duty lifting straps.
If there is a carpet or wooden floor, the spilled water seeps into the materials requiring a concerted effort to remove the water since simply wiping down the materials cannot suffice. Our SERVPRO technicians can remove the porous material for offsite drying or use advanced in-place drying approaches.
Combating large volumes of water is also possible using advanced equipment like:
- Portable or truck-mounted water extractors
- Structural cavity drying equipment
- High pressure or submersible pumps
