Speedy Water Removal Limits Loss At Home In The Bronx

When there's water damage in a home, you should always have the cleanup done quickly and professionally. If water migrates into areas of the property that do not receive proper remediation, the result can be mold, foul odors or structural weakening.

SERVPRO handled water removal from an overflowed bathtub of a Bronx resident. The homeowner ran a bath and lost track of time talking to a friend on the phone. Once she remembered, water had already pooled in the bathroom and hallway.

The homeowner used towels to dry as much water as she could but realized quickly this water cleanup job was bigger than some towels, and a mop could accomplish. Worse still, she noticed the wet carpeting outside the bathroom doorway and contacted our emergency response team.

Our technicians immediate scoped the room with our moisture detection equipment to trace the path of water migration. We found elevated moisture levels behind the baseboards, under the vanity and the carpeting in the doorway leading to the hallway showed signs of saturation.

The quick action from the homeowner prevented the bathwater from reaching the floor joists or subflooring as we found no indications of raised moisture levels. Our technicians removed the baseboards from both the wall and under the vanity, revealing a hollow area where water collected. We extracted the water using our portable pumps and to push out the maximum amount of moisture from the carpet and padding; we deployed our stand-on Rover unit that uses the weight of the technician to pull deeply seated areas of moisture.

Our SERVPRO technicians use the science behind air movers that forces embedded water vapor to rise to the surface when exposed to high-velocity air movement. As this happens, our dehumidifiers capture it and port it away. As this cycle continues, progressively drier air blows on the water damaged areas increasing drying speed. The bathroom and hallway carpeting dried completely and after we cleaned and disinfected the water loss areas, leaving the bathroom ready for use again.

The faster water removal happens, the more you can save from water loss. Contact SERVPRO of South Bronx at (347) 590-9902 for any type of cleanup and restoration needed, and We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
