SERVPRO Looks Out for Layout-Fueled Deterioration or Impediments to Restoration

When you realize water is intruding into your Burlington home, you might focus on the amount and condition of the water involved since these two factors determine the level of damage involved and the necessary restoration processes. However, other factors also play some roles that influence the outcome.

The property layout is one easily dismissed aspect of water damage in Burlington homes, but it has a big impact. That is why SERVPRO customer support agents inquire about the house layout and the source of the leak when you make the first call. Getting such information helps ensure proper planning of the restoration process.

Some of the crucial aspects regarding the layout include whether:

  • The house is single or multistory
  • Spilled water affects one or several rooms
  • There is a basement, attic, or other concealed area

In a storied house, water leaks originating in upper levels can cause more destruction. The water can find a way through the floor surface, run through the joists and wall frames, spreading moisture over vast areas. Since such moisture intrusion is confined to cavities, substantial demolition is necessary to resolve the damage. The restorers must therefore have some building skills.

When the intruding water spreads beyond a single room, it complicates water extraction and drying wet materials. If several rooms need attention, our SERVPRO teams bring several units of water extractors, air movers, and dehumidifiers to guarantee faster removal. 

SERVPRO of Bristol tackles all challenges related to water damage, making it "Like it never even happened." You can reach us at (860) 582-3330.
