We have the Water Removal Equipment Needed to Dry and Protect Homes in East Bridgewater

When you realize your tub overflowed or the water heater leaked all over the place, you want to dry your home in East Bridgewater as fast as possible. Too often, homeowners call us after deterioration sets in instead of when the initial event took place. We have the proper equipment needed to keep such harm from happening to your home.

Protecting the residences in East Bridgewater from the harsh effects of water often requires the use of water removal and drying equipment. Water that escaped from pipes and basins and soaked into floors and other surfaces inside your property does not disappear from your home merely because you no longer see it. Just as it can soak into things, it can also evaporate into the air and move to other areas of your home.

Water that becomes water vapor can condense on other surfaces and cause damage. It makes the air feel sticky on hotter days, as well as making the air feel heavier as you breathe. Wherever materials retain it within their pores, damage can begin to take place within only a few hours of the initial incident. However, the effects of both materials and excess humidity might not become apparent for some time.

The damage that can happen as a result of water left to work its way around your home unfettered costs much more than removing the water before such damage can ruin your house and any contents. Our equipment ranges from pumps of varying sizes to industrial-grade box fans that change the air between 3000 to 5000 cubic feet per minute (CFU). Proper extraction addresses lost water in all its forms, and SERVPRO carries these and other pieces of water removal equipment in our Green Fleet.

Since water seeps into pores and flows into enclosed spaces, becoming trapped in both, we use equipment that draws the water out of these spaces. Our fans speed up evaporation rates, pulling moisture out of walls and floors, while our Injectidry system handles enclosed spaces after we drain them with the use of tiny weep holes. Heating systems also play a role in getting the moisture below floorboards out before such moisture can cause cupping to occur.

SERVPRO of The Bridgewaters uses these and other useful tools to mitigate homes when water removal must take place. Preventing damage from occurring saves our customers expense and aggravation. Contact us at any time by calling (508) 697-5439. We serve North and South Easton, Whitman, and Scotland, 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

We Can Restore Your Fire Damaged Home In East Bridgewater

Bedroom Blaze Leaves Fire Damage Cleanup Challenge In East Bridgewater Home

Candles set the mood in a room, have a pleasant fragrance, and have the potential to cause significant fire damage. The speed at which the cleanup and restoration of fire loss begin can increase the number of items saved.

SERVPRO technicians worked on fire damage in the bedroom of an East Bridgewater home caused by a candle to get it ready for rebuilding. After containing the affected area, our technicians moved out the charred window treatments, mattress and bed frame as the longer they remain on the property, the more soot and odor they have the potential to spread.

The carpet was deemed a fire loss by the adjuster and required removal but was too heavy to move as it retained water. We extracted the water from extinguishing the fire from the carpet and cut it into strips for easy removal. We needed to perform controlled demotion to remove the charred sheetrock. We photographed, cataloged, and removed items in the room that had the potential for restoration to another area for cleaning and odor control.

As the bedroom was dried, we deployed air scrubbers to remove airborne soot particles. Once dry, we wiped down and disinfected the surfaces. These actions go a long way towards lowering odors left by the fire, but to rebuild, full removal of all offensive odors must occur.

We used a combination of an ozone machine which neutralizes odors at the molecular level and thermal fogging, which delivers a heated solvent that moves through the room the same way as the smoke did. Once we removed the odors, the room was ready for rebuilding. Our technicians gave the homeowner and adjuster a list of the tasks completed for mitigation as well as the repairs needed to return the bedroom to its preloss condition.

SERVPRO of The Bridgewaters handles all types of fire damage restoration. Our emergency response crew is available 24/7, call us at (508) 697-5439, and we can be on site soon after your initial call because We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Don’t Tackle Water Damage Remediation in Your Bridgewater Home Alone

Water Damage in the Kitchen of Your Bridgewater Home can Affect Cabinets and the Stability of Counter Spaces

Leaks under the kitchen sink in your Bridgewater home continuously wear away at the interior of the cabinet. This can destroy areas that you rarely inspect, allowing the area's condition to worsen. One of the first signs you might notice is instability of the countertop. Cracks along the seams of the counter might widen, also, allowing water and other sources of moisture to seep into the more porous materials underneath the surface, eventually leading to additional problems.

We work with homeowners in Bridgewater and surrounding areas when water damage calls for mitigation and restoration work. We also serve our local communities by putting measures in place that prevent future damage, saving customers money and aggravation.

Protecting your kitchen from water damage that starts with a small leak within the plumbing under the sink starts with sealing off where the water drips out. Using highly absorbent cloths, we clean the area to check the immediate area and then use an infrared camera so we can locate the extent of the water's spread. We do not want to waste time drying areas that never became wet.

The framework supporting a massive countertop requires stability and strength.  When water seeps into this area, deterioration and weakening lead to unevenness. Cabinets can also become discolored, veneers can peel, and solid wood can crack and splinter. Water, although used in multiple activities in the kitchen, can damage almost any materials it soaks into, especially when drying out never seems to happen.

We have specialized equipment to dry out the underside of such damp cabinets, as well as the space behind them where a gap forms between them and the wall. Our Injectidry's flexible tubing forces air into places that otherwise might remain damp with methods used to dry out more exposed areas in a room. When we use these to force air in and through an enclosed area, we do not have to build a drying chamber to target specific areas. Reinforcing the framework after we dry the area ultimately helps protect the countertop and anything installed with it in your kitchen.

SERVPRO of The Bridgewaters has the technology and skills to protect your home from the ruining effects of water damage. Homeowners in Scotland, Whitman, and all over Easton trust us to mitigate existing damage and to protect their property from future costly situations. Call us at (508) 697-5439, so we can help you, also.

Accurate Assessment of Water Damage Remediation Needs: Why SERVPRO Is Bridgewater’s Restoration Leader

The damage moisture does to your Bridgewater home starts with a first drop. Likewise, the desired results we deliver to our customers begins with an inspection and evaluation of the harm stemming from excess water. Our experienced team assesses your entire home, including searching for hidden sources and pockets of water, before developing a remediation plan. The thoroughness of our approach is why our team makes a wet mess “Like it never even happened.”

Regardless of the reasons your Bridgewater home suffers from water damage, the steps our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained technicians take follow the same path. We visually inspect for water incursions. Then we use sensitive moisture meters and thermal imaging devices to collect data for all saturated building materials and contents and hidden spaces holding standing water. Our commitment to a comprehensive search, including water migration into other areas, is why we are confident our team can return your home to its previous condition fast.

Our service vehicles carry both water removal and structural drying equipment, which is why SERVPRO Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) immediately start on your project’s plan. Rapid water removal and moisture reduction are crucial to successful remediation, saving building materials that might otherwise warp or crumble when too much time passes. Pumps and wanded extractors clear standing water, and we look to negative air pressure systems to suction water out of multi-layer floors and from behind walls.

We also consider controlled demolition to release water and provide better airflow for the drying phase. Flood cuts remove a portion of drywall at and above floor level. Drilled holes allow drainage of water in concrete or cinder block construction. These steps greatly accelerate water and moisture reduction when done by our highly-trained professionals. Our expertise in these efficient methods is why SERVPRO needs to be your first call after household water damage.

The integrity of your home during water damage remediation requires professional intervention, explaining why SERVPRO of The Bridgewaters should be your first call after the disaster. Contact us at (508) 697-5439 for round the clock inquiries and scheduling of an assessment.

Protecting Contents with Pack-Outs in Flooded Bridgewater Homes

As a restoration company that has been proudly serving the Bridgewater area for many years, we always strive to give our customers a thorough and detail-oriented restoration approach. When situations like flooding occur, we can protect affected contents and materials within that house by allowing our contents department to identify which of your belongings, furniture, and other affected materials can benefit from focused attention and relocation.

The affected contents of your Bridgewater home after flood damage cannot often remain in their original positions, and can continue to impact these items negatively. Instead, our SERVPRO professionals can safely pack up these items into production trailers that arrive with our Green Fleet and work to relocate them to our facility. There, these items can get better protected while also receiving specific attention to thoroughly clean, deodorize, and disinfect them.

Once your belongings arrive at our facility, our SERVPRO team can get to work on the cleaning and deodorization process, as many of these items can fall victim to mud, debris, and potential contaminants floodwater brings into your property. There are multiple approaches to addressing odor concerns from the use of our hydroxyl generator to our ozone chamber to effectively remove the harsh odor from multiple possessions and pieces of furniture simultaneously.

We can tag these items and safely store them within our warehouse as restoration work continues in your home. This area of our facility is climate and temperature controlled, ensuring that no harm befalls these items until they are ready to get returned to your restored property. Once our IICRC-Certified restoration specialists have brought your home back to preloss condition, our contents department can bring the recovered items back to your property to get returned to their original positions.

While many people can appreciate our desire to go above and beyond for our customers, many do not fully understand the lengths that our team goes to ensure that we protect your possessions during a disaster. No matter when flooding occurs, our SERVPRO of The Bridgewaters team can get there quickly to make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (508) 697-5439.
