Unexpected Water Damage Problems in Burlington Solved by SERVPRO

Water troubles can be brewing in your Burlington house unnoticed. Small leaks under a sink, behind a wall or around the sides of a poorly caulked tub eventually become bigger issues. By the time a homeowner realizes that water has soaked into fixtures and structural components, significant harm can need attention. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)- trained technicians are ready to address any water loss in your home fast.

When we arrive at your Burlington abode, our experienced crew assesses the water damage. Because pipes and drains hide within building cavities behind walls and under floors, we employ sensitive moisture measuring and thermal imaging devices to map out the perimeters of the saturated building materials. We want to stop the migration of water to even more unaffected spaces as well as to dry out the wet areas.

If we discover pooled water under cabinets or between walls, pumps and extractors from our fully-stocked SERVPRO service vehicles remove it. We disassemble kickboards beneath fixtures and consider controlled demolition of the lower sections of walls to gain access to the water. Periodic reuse of detection devices ensures we make progress and avoid missing damaged areas.

Water can make its way through layers of hardwood and even ceramic tile if the grout is missing or cracked. SERVPRO uses negative air pressure equipment to suction water from several levels of flooring. We attach floor mats to the surface, connect hoses to the mats, and pulling the water out with extractors for power.

Once standing water exits your home, SERVPRO focuses on techniques mastered by team members certified by the IICRC, Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification,  for Applied Structural Drying (ASD). Creating a restorative drying environment requires leveraging the scientific principle that wet moves to dry. We position air movers and heaters to reduce your home’s interior humidity, facilitating the movement of absorbed moisture out of porous building materials into the drier air. Our commercial-grade dehumidifiers then absorb or condense the water vapor created for permanent removal.

SERVPRO of Bristol is ready for your water damage needs, invested in the training and the equipment for the job. Call us at  (860) 582-3330 when you suspect an unseen water loss.
