How Do I Restore My Home After Water Damage?
The Best Way to Restore Your Downtown Manhattan Home After Water Damage is to Call a Water Restoration Technician
Your home in Downtown Manhattan probably boasts of historic character and the charm of fine craftsmanship. However, older homes may pose additional risks to their plumbing, which could lead to leaks. Even worse, some of the water leaking from an older pipe may not become apparent until you smell a musty odor or your water bill increases. By then, water has probably made its way through flooring, cabinets, and walls. Discoloration in your ceiling and peeling paint can also be symptomatic of a more significant problem.
Repairing water damage in your home in Downtown Manhattan is a job for our water restoration technicians at SERVPRO. Our training and knowledge about the treatment of different materials such as wood, composite, and textiles are differentiators in our field. Whenever you face the consequences of excessive moisture, you must avoid using one cleaning product for all items, causing further damage or doing a poor job of restoring your home. It is best to leave the work to our expert team and rely on our fact-based restoration plan.
Can I save my hardwood floors after water damage?
Homeowners with natural or engineered wood floors often worry that water damage is equivalent to a total loss. However, our SERVPRO crew can take several steps towards preventing permanent damage. Ordinarily, hardwood floors change as humidity levels shift. Our goal is to reverse the effect of cupping or buckling by closely monitoring humidity levels and allowing the wood planks to return to their ideal state. A few extra steps may also entail-
- Removing the floor's finish if it becomes an evaporation barrier
- Increase beneath the floor airflow itself with minimal perforation of the floor finish
- Create a drying chamber with a polyethylene tent when there's a need
Rather than jump to conclusions about your flooring state, call SERVPRO of Alphabet City/Downtown Manhattan for help. Our expert team is at your service by calling (646) 665-4195. Like you, we aim to want to leave your home, "Like it never even happened."
