Call Water Damage Restoration Experts in Wayne to Handle the Water Damage.

When water seeps into your Wayne property, it can cause significant damage to your valuable contents and the structure of your home. It can promote electrical hazards and lead to mold growth if not handled on time. Therefore, it is essential to call professional restorers immediately you notice the leak, to prevent further damage.

What should I do before the professionals arrive?

SERVPRO technicians can respond fast to handle the water damage in your Wayne property. However, before the restorers get to your property, you can address the primary concerns. When water seeps into items of value, we advise property owners to:

    •    Remain calm to maintain clear thinking.
    •    Identify the source of the leak.
    •    Turn off the main water supply.
    •    Switch off the electricity if water has pooled in the house.
    •    Place aluminum foil under the feet of furniture that is in contact with water to prevent staining.

How do you inspect for water damage?

When we get to your property, our team inspects the affected area thoroughly to determine the extent of the damage. We can use penetrating moisture meters, thermal imaging cameras, or moisture sensors to check the moisture levels. The moisture intensity readings help us make informed decisions on which technique and equipment to use during the water removal and drying process.

How do you dry a water-damaged property?

Inadequate drying can lead to an unhealthy environment and expensive repairs. After removing the water, SERVPRO technicians use advanced equipment to dry the affected areas fast and effectively. We can use axial air movers, which move enormous volumes of air from outside into the affected area. The fresh and dry air increases the rate of evaporation, leading to faster drying of affected surfaces, including the hard to reach areas. Our restorers use dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air. We pay particular attention to the condition of plaster, wood, and wall finishes as well as other elements of a building that water has affected to ensure thorough drying.
