Secondary Damage: What Is That?

3/12/2021 (Permalink)

Home affected by water damage. Home that suffered water damage. Drying with SERVPRO equipment to prevent any secondary damage. Call SERVPRO of South Bronx today!

Some water damage is evident.  This will be something like a burst pipe or dishwasher overflowing. Some water damage is more hidden.  This could be a slow leak that drips over time.

Whatever type of damage you have, it needs to be addressed quickly. Especially with warmer months around the corner, water damage has the potential to turn into mold damage very fast.  The warm and damp conditions are a perfect breeding ground for mold.  This is called secondary damage, as it is not the initial water damage, but is directly related to it.

This is why SERVPRO of South Bronx works to minimize these risks.  We remove the affected areas. We dry the affected areas thoroughly by monitoring if equipment is being used. When drying is done we spray antimicrobials to those same affected areas to ensure no mold can grow.  If we are called for mold, we can remediate that as well.

After water damage to your home or business, SERVPRO of South Bronx has the skilled technicians and specialized equipment needed for your commercial and/or residential damage remediation needs.  That is why we should be your first call. Contact us at 347-590-9902 for immediate assistance or email us at office@SERVPROsouthbronx.com
