Stain And Discoloration Management Is Part Of Water Damage Restoration In Burlington

Dusting the furniture in your Burlington home after a party involves clearing away drinks and other items. When a watermark on a wooden table shows up, treating the wood right away keeps the damage from becoming permanent. This is true of many kinds of damage and why we strive to mitigate a house and its contents as rapidly as possible.

Homeowners in Burlington notice signs of water damage in many forms. Discoloration and staining make things look dirty, no matter how much you clean. We use different cleansers and other products to undo the damage caused by water from broken pipes, overflowed sinks and tubs, and other sources of water. Our building services department can handle plumbing issues, making our work more cost-effective for you.

Besides showing up as stains, water damage can materialize in other ways. Windowsills and door frames can deteriorate or warp, decreasing security and strength. Many stains can hide or mimic the look of microbial infestations on walls and ceilings. Cabinet doors and other varnished wood can peel and flake, leaving them bare and unprotected.
SERVPRO’s water damage technicians (WRT) use unique formulations that eliminate stains and other signs of the presence of water. After excessive moisture in the area decreases to non-damaging amounts, we can start working on restoring finishes on wood and removing stains from other surfaces.

Our building and reconstructive services can plane down warped window frames and doorways, so they open and close correctly. New locking mechanisms to replace previous ones can restore security. Sealing with a stain blocker and then repainting often suffices. However, severe deterioration might require the installation of new frames.

We might use a stain blocker on walls and ceilings. Slow leaks in overhead locations can cause discoloration. Because of the unevenness, this staining might look like mold or mildew. Instead, the color comes from the bleeding-through of minute particles in the drywall itself. Once dry, we can paint over the stain blocker and have your home looking beautiful again.

Where the finish on cabinets and doors show peeled away areas, the wood can become overly dry, and the pores can enlarge, allowing dirt to enter. Abrasive soils can wear down wood from the inside, as well as create significant discoloration. We use a creme paste to remove the topmost layer of varnish gently, so a new coating of varnish or other sealer applies evenly.

SERVPRO of Bristol’s specialists can be found working on homes and businesses in Plainville, New Hartford, and around Pleasant Valley. When stains and discolorations are making your home uncomfortable, call us at (860) 582-3330. We can help mitigate and restore your home, so water damage disappears, “Like it never even happened.”
