Help with Water Extraction and Restoration in Farmington

Water damage occurs in residences in Connecticut in a diverse number of ways. From leaking pipes to failed appliances, broken aquariums or flash flood damage, the key to avoiding secondary losses such as mold or foul odors is in the mitigation efforts.
SERVPRO answered a call for water cleanup in a Farmington home. A pipe in the wall under a little-used guest room vanity leaked for a considerable period made itself known when the supply line failed.  A large amount of water poured onto the bathroom floor before the homeowner shutoff the water. While it may seem that we should set up air movers to dry the area as quickly as possible, extracting the water is the most crucial task to address. The more water we remove before drying lessens the overall drying time.
Our technicians used multiple tools to ensure as we remove as much moisture from the floor and carpeting as possible. Weighted extractors push water from within the padding for faster drying. The damaged sheetrock around the leak was a loss and was cut away to encourage more airflow within the wall cavity during the drying phase. This also automatically reduces the amount of excess moisture in the affected area.

SERVPRO technicians have certifications in multiple restoration craftsmanships, including Applied Structural Drying (ASD.) When positioning the air movers, our training includes how to angle them to raise embedded moisture which our dehumidifiers then port off-site, resulting in progressively drier air circulating within the water loss area.
After the drying phase, both mold and odors are a concern. We use EPA-registered cleaning formulas that both inhibit the growth of mold and sanitize surfaces. Once our SERVPRO technicians completed cleaning, we gave the homeowner a list of the necessary repairs to return the guestroom and bathroom to its preloss condition. The homeowner was pleased to learn our location offers building services that include plumbing and sheetrock installation to make restorations seamless and less stressful.
