SERVPRO Can Help Evaluate Water Damage in Willimantic Premises Recommending Solutions

Water damage can stop a single or all activities at your Willimantic facilities. Although the amount of intruding water matters, the outcome hinges mostly on the restorative actions you take. Therefore, balancing thoroughness and speed is essential.

Water damage restoration in your Willimantic premises takes removing the intruding water, reversing any material changes triggered by moisture action, and cleaning. The sequence in which the tasks are done also matters since prioritizing activities such as water removal limits continued exposure for materials, leading to many benefits. SERVPRO provides IICRC certified water restoration technicians to run a balanced water restoration exercise at your premises.

Balancing water restoration involves making decisions such as:

  • Whether to move items or leave them in place
  • Gauging restorability of materials
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of restoration methods

The contents in your facility, whether furniture, stock, or machines, impact the restoration process. Bulky items can stand in the way of procedures such as water extraction but moving them can take time. The final decision depends on which of the two options offers more advantages. Our SERVPRO technicians can make the decision faster because of our experience. So it is easier to tell which items can be damaged from water or high humidity exposure. We also have handy equipment such as lifting straps and hard carts that simplify movement.

Materials behave differently once exposed to water. For some, significant exposure leads to irreversible damage. Instead of wasting time and other resources trying to salvage such materials, it is better to tear them down. Our SERVPRO technicians check for vulnerable materials such as laminated floors since they swell quickly, leading to unsalvageable damage. Another reason that affects restorability is contamination. If the water is contaminated, cleaning and decontamination cannot save materials like carpets, so removal is the best option.

SERVPRO of Norwich and Windham County handles water damage restoration regularly. Therefore, we know what it takes to run a smooth exercise. Call us at (860) 887-0447. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
