Water Cleanup in The Bronx Has Surprises--Why SERVPRO Can Handle All Aspects Including Rebuilding and Secondary Damage Like Mold

A residential water loss might start out looking pretty straightforward. An overflowed tub, for example, would seem to need just a thorough mopping. But when stained walls or blistered ceiling paint arises below, what does that tell you? Arranging for an assessment from a reliable water restoration company can avoid severe and permanent damage.

Why Is Water Cleanup Just the First Phase?
When we arrive at your home in the Bronx, water cleanup is just one of the tasks we undertake. Visible standing water we extract, but that cannot be the final task. Why do we take further steps to follow the path of the water?

    •    Lingering moisture continues to break down building materials and fixtures
    •    Mold growth stems from high humidity and persistently damp spaces

What Is Water Migration and How Is It Traced?
Our crews must use the training and devices in our “toolbox” to follow water migration after the spill. We use moisture detectors to locate the path and moisture meters to measure the variance from normal levels in unaffected materials in the same residence. Drying out these materials stops any progressive deterioration and limits mold growth, why SERVPRO gathers the data.

How Do We Reach the Moisture?
Because the water hides behind walls, under floors, and over ceilings, access is difficult. This challenge is why we employ controlled demolition to remove drywall, ceiling tiles, or other materials to permit release and extraction of liquids and efficient drying of wet materials, using temperature adjustment, air movers and dehumidifiers.

Why SERVPRO Stands Apart?
Our general contractor license and mold remediation certification are two essential resources, and explain why we can offer comprehensive services to our customers. Our team is adept at partial demolition and build back. If mold has taken hold, we have the licensed technicians to remediate under local requirements.

Multiple licenses and certification are why SERVPRO of South Bronx is the solution for our neighbors experiencing water loss. Call (347) 590-9902 for a thorough assessment and recovery plan.
