SERVPRO Features Highly Skilled Water Damage Technicians in Norwich

Once a household appliance malfunctions or you have burst pipes at your place of business, you could be in for water damage. Even the most minor incident could lead to adverse effects like costly secondary damage, the loss of contents, and musty odors from the onset of black mold and mildew. DIY is never recommended, as water mitigation is time-consuming and calls for specialized methods in many instances. SERVPRO wants all Norwich property owners to know that our locally-owned franchise has all restoration methods, industrial-grade equipment, and IICRC-certified technicians to handle whatever project you have. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster, getting there within four hours or less once you make initial contact with our friendly customer care team.

One of the most critical aspects of water damage in Norwich is water mitigation. The mitigation process helps limit the amount of moisture that comes into contact with materials. Our skilled technicians also use rapid water removal services to keep standing water from migrating into unaffected areas of your home or business. SERVPRO focuses on proven strategies that include removing water, manipulating airflow, and repositioning materials to help us reach our goals. 

During water-related projects, some actions we may take include:

  • Removal of all wet fabrics and upholstery
  • Disposal of all saturated and unsalvageable materials
  • Blotting and mopping, as needed
  • Tenting certain accessories, such as cushions
  • Implementation of cleaning using EPA-registered antimicrobials and cleaning solutions

We Take Special Care with All Furnishings and Fabrics

While many fabrics will be resilient to water damage if they dry fast, there could be long-term problems if special care is not taken during restoration. For example, light permanent staining could be an issue due to rust or running dyes. We have technicians on our team that know how to separate fabrics and remove furniture that rests on carpeted flooring. All measures get taken to keep dyes from bleeding onto other materials to thwart stains and further damage. If you have wet carpeting, carpet pads, or area rugs, our team may also remove and relocate for further drying before reinstalling.

How Does SERVPRO Handle Water Removal Services?

Standing water removal is imperative to keep it from becoming stagnant within your Norwich property. This helps lessen deterioration due to exposure to your contents and building materials. Rapid reductions also minimize moisture migration that could create an issue with hidden damage. During water removal, we often:

  • Utilize free-standing pumps, truck-mounted extractors, carpet wands, and weighted rovers to pull up varying water and moisture levels.
  • Wipe down all interior surfaces that came into contact with water
  • Blowing dry air over any wet areas with the help of centrifugal air movers and other industrial-grade equipment

Dehumidification is Vital for All Water-Related Incidents

SERVPRO utilizes drying equipment and dehumidification in tandem to get the best results. We must restore relative humidity within your property to keep moisture at bay and limit the possibility of mold and mildew growth. We do so with powerful desiccant or refrigerant dehumidifiers to ensure relative humidity (RH) returns to normal levels.

Controlled Demolition for a Finishing Touch
