Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Riverhead, NY

How Do Water Losses Happen in Riverhead Homes? 

It is impossible to know all of the ways that water damages could threaten Riverhead homes. However, our experienced technicians have an understanding of the work that must begin upon that discovery to protect the structure, its contents, and its occupants. Because water losses are such a standard callout for our SERVPRO team, we have seen many causes to these emergencies, many of which are unpredictable and threaten the structure with standing water concerns. We have a 24/7 response to: 

  • Water heater ruptures
  • Freezing pipe breaks
  • Washing machine/dishwasher malfunctions
  • Leaking fixtures

Water Removal and Drying Solutions for Riverhead Homes 

From the time that our technicians first leave the warehouse, it is vital to get the water loss situation under control as quickly as possible. To do this, we need to establish effective extraction, moisture removal, and drying efforts as soon as the team arrives at the damaged Riverhead address. We have an assortment of extractors, including both electric submersible pumps and wet vacuums, to address standing water and puddling. 

We also have effective evaporative drying solutions that hinge on the high-velocity air movers that we bring to a restoration site. Centrifugal air movers can help to target specific saturated points to expedite drying by eliminating a vapor barrier on the surface. Efficient drying techniques like these can help us to reduce the possibility of hazardous secondary effects like mold and microbial growth from beginning in the house.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

Typically, hundreds or thousands of gallons of water are removed using our powerful pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. We start this process as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to help prevent mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration

The last step is restoring your home or business back to its pre-water damage condition. The restoration step can be relatively minor, such as replacing a few drywall panels, or could include major reconstruction, such as rebuilding entire rooms of a home or business.
