SERVPRO Helps Identify Priority Issues in Niagara Falls Properties When Delivering Water Removal Services

The cleanup process following a water intrusion incident is a lengthy one involving several steps, including the movement of items, the teardown of materials, and the removal of soils. Although it is crucial to complete all the steps, you should give some priority. 

Before starting water cleanup in Niagara Falls homes, proper planning is necessary to identify the higher priority issues. Our SERVPRO technicians perform walkthroughs before taking any steps. In many cases, the matters that demand the most attention include:   

  • Moisture management   
  • Prevention of material deterioration      
  • Identifying reversible damage

Our SERVPRO technicians use various approaches to accomplish the moisture management goal. On arrival at the affected property, we set up dehumidifiers to keep relative humidity levels below 60%. Spilled water constantly evaporates, driving increasing humidity levels. 

Our SERVPRO technicians take various readings using moisture sensors and thermal cameras to ascertain the building's wetness levels and thus determine the level and type of material deterioration. Steps such as move-outs and separation of materials can help prevent deterioration from extended moisture exposure or staining due to proximity to dissimilar materials. Following the right precedence helps improve the outcome for:

  • Water damage remediation
  • Flood restoration
  • Water damage repairs
