SERVPRO Comes to Your New Haven Property to Begin Water Mitigation as a Way to Limit Cost and Secondary Damage

Do you have drips within your home that you keep putting off until later? You may even have a slow leak somewhere, and the damage is multiplying behind the scenes. Even with visible ceiling leaks or burst pipes, prompt water mitigation is the best way to cut back on the costs and need for more involved restoration efforts. SERVPRO wants all New Haven residents to know that they can limit the damage by taking the initiative to call our team for water mitigation and extraction services. We’re available 24/7!

Broken piping, regional flooding, or a faulty appliance are all causes for alarm. You need water mitigation in New Haven, and you need it fast. Even though you may have only noticed a small amount of water or dripping here and there, the moisture migrates and weakens materials or brings on the potential for harmful mold growth. These are some areas that you can check to see if you have any potential water damage that we can take care of for you:

  • Window frames that are warmed or missing seals
  • Appliance water tubes that have jostled loose or deteriorated
  • Water piping located in your basement
  • Piping that handles wastewater removal
  • AC unit condensation coils
  • Areas around your sink fixtures, tubs, showers, and toilets

Even an innocent drip can turn into material degradation or corrosion. It is best to call in trained technicians, such as our IICRC-certified team at SERVPRO. We have moisture detection tools and drying equipment to help address the issue and get to the root cause of the problem. In areas where materials are unsalvageable, we are happy to perform controlled demolition to replace them with all new materials.

SERVPRO of New Haven is available for water mitigation and more! Call us when you need us at (203) 234-1100, and we can make it “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Commercial Water Damage Restoration Teams Can Help Get your Business Running Again After Emergency

Businesses can be put out of action by a sudden water leak, pipe burst, or roofing issue. These events can have a real effect on revenues by forcing a closure or limiting the functionality of the business. We understand that these events have a real, monetary impact on owners and should be addressed as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Our technicians are trained and qualified to help provide a speedy solution to any water intrusion issue. Our specialist technicians can set up and operate an efficient drying plan for your business by working with a crew chief. Use SERVPRO for:

  • Drying a premises
  • Cleaning water damage
  • Water mitigation

It is vital to have the requisite resources and equipment to perform commercial water damage restoration for New Haven businesses. Unlike residential properties, a company is generally larger, requiring equipment that can move huge air. Industrial drum fans are capable of carrying over 15,000 cubic feet of air per minute. This equipment is essential for providing consistent airflow over larger warehouse spaces and can help to speed up the drying process. Adapted air-movers can suck air into a ducting tube that helps to remove humid air from the property while maintaining a consistent airflow. 

  • Ventilators suck moist air through ducts which aids the drying process and deposit humid air outside the premises. 
  • Drum fans are designed to provide less pressure than air-movers over a wider space and generally dry surfaces, walls, and contents. 
  • Monitoring and recording the effectiveness of these drying solutions help to ensure we can provide business owners with real-time estimates for drying time.

How Do New Haven Residents Replace Walls and Ceilings After Fire Damage?

Most Fire Damage Situations Can Be Restored Using Expert Cleaning Techniques and Equipment. Use SERVPRO of New Haven to Restore your Home

Housefires can release chemicals and odor particles into your home. After flames are extinguished, you may find your home unrecognizable due to smoke or soot stains. The common areas affected by smoke residues are likely to be upper walls and ceilings, attracting hot smoke particles onto these cooler surfaces. While it is inevitable that some charred materials be replaced, the main parts of a structure can often return to a good condition through cleaning. Professional technicians can help to assess quickly:

  • The cleanability of structure after fire
  • Non-salvageable materials and debris removal
  • Smoke and odor composition

To repair fire damage in your New Haven, it is usually best to bring in experts. Vital equipment such as personal protective gear, centrifugal venting fans, and cleaning solvents can be expensive to procure for one-time usage. SERVPRO provides all necessary equipment and products to rescue a home with light, moderate or severe smoke impact. Dry sponges are excellent at removing residual layers of soot from a surface but may struggle to get rid of stubborn or wet smoke soiling. When cleaning walls, it is essential to:

  • Start on a discrete area using a dry cleaning sponge and taking care not to spread existing damages along the wall. 
  • Apply solvents to greasy or wet smoke deposits that can help to break the bond between soot particles and the surface. 
  • When using water-based cleaning products, like detergent, ensure that dehumidifiers are placed afterward to dry the wall and avoid mold growth thoroughly.

SERVPRO Mold Damage Technicians in New Haven Can Help Identify and Address Microbial Growth in Your Property

Mold is an umbrella term for fungi. Fungi are a type of microorganism that grows rapidly in the correct temperatures providing they have a supply of organic matter to digest and water. There are thousands of species within the mold family, which can affect almost any part of your home. Molds grow in floor dust on painted surfaces, infest fiberglass as well as gypsum board. One common mold species in a home is Cladosporium, which grows in carpets, walls, metal surfaces, and other building materials. Use professionals to help with:

  • Mold remediation
  • Mold identification
  • Indoor air quality assessment. 

Finding mold damage in your New Haven home is not uncommon. However, finding mold infestation could cause long-lasting structural damage or health effects. SERVPRO technicians can help to control and reduce mold infestations. We start by removing infested materials safely and in a contained environment to reduce the chances of spreading. We can then replace materials or perform restoration services for metals or other dense materials to return them to a preloss condition. 

  • Addressing potential sources of moisture such as malfunctioning HVAC systems, leaks, or insulation issues requires professional training and is essential to reducing microbial growth. 
  • Creating a clean air system with air scrubbers can help contain an outbreak and ensure indoor air quality remains sanitary. 
  • Dehumidification, like chemical biocides, can help slow the growth rate of molds but is usually less effective than removing infested materials and air scrubbers. 

Mold can be an expensive infestation in your home. Contact SERVPRO of New Haven for mold damage remediation at (203) 234-1100.

When You Require Water Mitigation, SERVPRO Arrives Fast to Begin Working on Your New Haven Property

During an emergency water damage event, moisture can get trapped in the tightest spaces and areas unseen to the naked eye. Once surface water starts migrating into materials and gets trapped, it causes even more issues – including the onset of costly secondary damage and mold infestation. Water damage remediation means mitigating damage before it has time to turn into a much larger event. SERVPRO is there to handle everything from start to finish, so your New Haven home gets brought back to pre-water damage condition “Like it never even happened.”

During our process for water mitigation in New Haven, SERVPRO focuses on treatment strategies, water removal services, and moisture detection. Not only will the standing water be a concern, but we also take the time to address trapped moisture pockets within your walls or under your flooring.

Speaking of flooring, SERVPRO takes measures to restore rather than replace wherever possible. Should you have hardwood flooring, we may bring in drying mats to better facilitate water clean-up. It is important to remember that:

  • Oversaturation and prolonged moisture can cause hardwood flooring to bloat or warp. Once this happens, floors become challenging to restore, and water damage repairs are the best option. 
  • Proper placement of drying mats allows us to maximize output, thus enhancing our ability to save the flooring materials.
  • Tenting is a helpful process that allows us to remove trapped moisture while monitoring drying progress continually.
  • Should we find that restoration of your flooring or subfloor below is not possible, we can begin controlled demolition services to repair and replace it with new materials completely. 

SERVPRO of New Haven is the company you want on your side for water mitigation in an emergency. Call us for rapid response at (203) 234-1100.
