Managing Different Aspects of Water Damage in Your Waterbury Home

When a water pipe bursts in the ceiling or other elevated location within your Waterbury home, it can lead to significant losses. In many cases, inaction or taking the wrong actions is what exacerbates the problem. Hiring a professional restoration company should ease the burden because the advanced training and experience they have, ensure corrective steps are taken expeditiously. 

Water damage in your Waterbury home can manifest in different ways depending on several factors. For instantaneous incidences, the ceiling panels may sag, or bubbles might appear. In case of slow leaks, the paint can darken forming large patches. These issues manifest because the absorbed water causes expansion, which weakens the natural bonds in the material. Chemical reactions can also happen, interfering with the structural integrity of the material. For example, wet rot occurs readily in timber and derivative products if the absorbed water pushes moisture content over 30%. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect the loss site to establish the broader implications of the visible signs. 

If the water pooling in the ceiling drips to the contents, it transfers dust and other debris it collects to them, necessitating content cleaning as part of damage restoration. Some contents like upholstery present challenges when cleaning because immersing or spraying them with high-pressure water can worsen the damages. Our SERVPRO technicians help with general as well as specialized content cleaning tasks. We even have specialty Upholstery Cleaning Machines with wash and rinse features, and better agitation than handwashing, for effective removal of soils and debris. 

Water loss incidents leave varying types of physical damage to the structure. They can affect surfaces finishes, drywall, or even floor materials such as carpets. Restoration may require controlled demolition to remove the affected materials for replacement. Our SERVPRO technicians use moisture sensors with probes to check the level of wetness in different materials, determining what to remove and what to restore through drying. 

Seeking help from a professional can help you manage water loss situations in your Cheshire, Prospect, or Wolcott property better. Call SERVPRO of Waterbury at (203) 757-5050 to help you. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
