Get Fast And Efficient Water Damage Restoration In Your Fort Lee Residence

Water damage does not always result from significant leaks. Small leaks that might go undetected for an extended period can ruin your carpeting or cause electrical faults, warping of wood flooring, swelling of drywall, or sagging of ceilings. If you do not perform restoration on time, you can incur costly repairs, or your home might be unsafe to live in.

The small leaks in your property could be from a cracked tile in the bathroom or a malfunctioning dishwasher, washing machine or water heater. Regardless of what caused the water damage in your Fort Lee residence, SERVPRO can handle the problem. Our technicians can complete any restoration project proficiently.

Water damage poses many dangers in a home. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, above-average humidity levels are enough to cause a hazardous environment for the occupants of a home. The recommended moisture levels are around 40 to 60 percent. Anything above that creates a conducive environment for dangerous toxins and mold growth. Mold can cause health effects to the occupants of a property.

One of the most significant steps in water damage restoration is the drying process. If the drying process is not properly undertaken, the property can sustain more water damage. During the drying process, it is possible to face condensation problems. Condensation is the process in which water vapor turns into a liquid. It prevents efficient drying and can also cause secondary damage to your property. Therefore, we note any issues that may arise courtesy of condensation and resolve them professionally. Condensation can happen in:

Wall cavities

From the years we have been in the restoration industry, we have learned that when restorers apply heat on wall surfaces, condensation takes place in the wall cavities. To avoid such a problem, we can use a venting box fan to increase the airflow in the property. Increasing air circulation also speeds up the drying process.

Hardwood floors

Condensation problem in hardwoods occurs in their interstitial cavities. Condensation takes place when the surface temperature falls below the dew point. This is the temperature at which water vapor starts to turn to a liquid. We avoid this problem by controlling airflow and humidity in the property while performing heat drying. Our team can use desiccant dehumidifiers to remove moisture. This equipment uses chemicals known as desiccants, which readily absorb moisture from the air.

When drying your home, our SERVPRO team can use portable heaters, the HVAC system, or air conditioners to control the temperature and facilitate drying.

After a water loss incident, SERVPRO of Fort Lee can restore your property to its pre-incident state. We respond fast to emergencies at any time of the day. Call us today at (201) 496-6024 for restoration services in Edgewater, Cliffside Park, and Ridgefield.
