Between my insurance company and the restorers, whom should I call first?
You should contact your insurance provider first to inform it about the water intrusion incident, and then contact a restoration company. Your insurance company can advise you to hire SERVPRO to perform water removal in your Waterbury home. If it is necessary to take emergency measures to mitigate the water damage, you can sign an agreement and our restorers can begin the restoration process. Begin the water removal process within a short time can prevent secondary damage like:
- Mold infestation
- Water spotting
- Color bleeding
- Swelling of wood flooring
- Microbial growth
Our team can speak with and coordinate with your insurance adjuster, who may visit your home to inspect and document the damage. Our team can complete a report called the Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS), which inventories items in a house and categorizes them as non-salvageable, salvageable, or questionable.
How much water can cause damage?
It takes only a few inches of water to cause damages to a home. Our technicians can minimize the harmful effects of water damage by providing prompt and reliable water removal. We can use portable pumps or wet/dry vacuums to remove the water.
Can you dry my wet carpet?
We use state-of-the-art equipment and tools to speed up the drying process. If your carpet has absorbed lots of water, we can use a stationary tool to extract it. The tool needs weight to work effectively on porous surfaces. Therefore, our restorers can stand upon the device to provide the extra weight. We attach a vacuum system to the device to pull the excess water through the tiny holes.
We can also use several centrifugal air movers to increase the airflow in the affected area. Airflow increases the rate of evaporation, even in the hard to reach areas.
How can you disinfect my property?
We use approved techniques that offer protection against mold, germs, and odors. We can use a broad-spectrum disinfectant like Microban, which is both a quaternary compound and phenolic to eradicate microbes. The product is effective against different varieties of bacteria, fungi, and some viruses. In addition, the product helps us fight odors. Quaternary Compounds have a naturally pleasant smell that counteracts foul odors even without an added fragrance.
