SERVPRO Helps With Water Removal As Well As Other Water Damage Repairs Needed

After a storm, you may not expect flood damage in your home if there is no standing water inside your Farmington property. However, if storm winds blow off some shingles from the roof, some water may find a way into the ceiling void, leaving it trapped.

Any aspect of flood damage in Farmington homes, whether hidden or readily discernible, poses significant challenges to the house occupants and the restorers. For instance, the weight of the water pooling in the ceiling can cause it to sag and even collapse if nothing is done to address the situation. SERVPRO is well suited to reverse the effects of water intrusion.

Common actions taken as part of flood restoration include:

  • Water clean up
  • Ceiling repairs from water damages
  • Water damage repairs

Our SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians focus on actions that halt or reverse damages conveniently. For instance, we drill small weep holes on the sagging ceiling to remove the water. Starting drilling closer to the support beams and moving towards the center as the water drains out helps minimize the chances of collapse. Drying the supporting beams and replace any unsalvageable materials. 

Other water damage repairs in the ceiling include:

  • Replacing wet insulation
  • Drying wet support structures such as beams
  • Applying chemical agents to prevent microbial growth

SERVPRO of The Farmington Valley manages flood damage to reverse immediate damages and prevent secondary problems. Call us at (860) 675-4500. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
